Monday 8th December
Today we leave the exciting town of Greymouth and head towards Franz Josef (in the southern alps)stopping off in Ross to do a spot of gold panning. Jen dropped all hers over the floor in the shop..... Shes been a bit unlucky so far but quite entertaining for me. Whahahaha!
the weathe rin Franz Josef was awful, the worst its been since weve arrived in NZ. Today we had booked up the half day hike up the glacier. We nearly called it off but decided we had nothing better to do. It was amazing, really glad we did it. We treked through rainforest across rivers then began the trek up the glacier (in the pouring rain) and got to see pure blue ice. Awesome!
