Just a quick blog enrty to let you know that I've done the helicopter and hiking on Franz Josef Glacier...What a fantastic experience. This is one of the highlights of the trip so far. It is so vast, peaceful and beautiful. I simply loved it. The blue ice looks amazing, not sure the pictures do it justice actually!
The helicopter journey to the Glacier was awesome. Very cool, sweeping up and over the cliff face to the glacier and seeing it from a birds eye view was something out of this world. had my very own axe and spikes for my shoes... that was cool, as you think you should be really careful with your feet, but with those spikes you can go crazy man..... I loved it so much.
Off to Queenstown tomorrow, so will update you all on my next adventure.
