Rain, rain, rain.

Lots of it. It started the night before in Greymouth, and didn't stop all day. We were on the bus for a lot of the day, and a lot of the regular activities we're rained out. We had an interesting time driving through some flooded and washed out roads.

Even with the rain it was quite an amazing bus journey. We were winding along the coast with the ocean on one side and a lush tropical rainforest on the other side. All the mist and clouds surrounding the top of the mountains in the rainforest were quite a sight.

There is an amazing glacier at Franz Josef, but unfortunately the weather was too bad to get up the road to see it. Everything was pretty much canceled.

Aside from that, had a great hostel and Franz Josef was a cute little town.

Queenstown tomorrow!
