We are currently in Glacier Land, The picture above in Fox Glacier, we are staying just north of Fox at Frans. About 20Km distnace between each one.
The drive here was amazing, we left Christchurch Thursday morning and drove West along Arthurs Pass, the views and the mountains here was unreal. The best drive you could ever do! Again the photos just dont do it justice!
After about 6/7 hours of driving we finally got to the West Coast and decided to stay in a town called Hokitika. This town was on the coast and looked like something from 100 years ago! Nothing like we are used to as youll see from the pics. Staying in a nice hostel there though and went for some food in a place called the tin shed!! The pub was good though, good character, people playing and singing live and lots of "outback" ornaments and pictures around. The owner looked like Mick Dundee so we got a photos of him!!
We left Hokitika this morning and drove south down highway 6 to the Glacier land, tourist kind of town, again not much here at all and we are actually writing this up from a internet cafe which is in a bus!!! We are playing to join a 9 hour hike up the Glacier tomorrow which should be a great experience and the photos we have seen are amazing, so we will get those up as soon as possible.
