The path to the beach is covered in mud. Deep mud. Deep enough to …

    The rain has stopped and the sun is shining - its a gorgeous morning for our trip onto the Franz Josef Glacier.

    After getting kitted out in all the gear, waterproof trousers, walking boots, hats, gloves, etc we are off in the helicopter for a short flight onto the glacier. Charlie and Indie in the front, and the rest of us in the back. …
