Franz Josef Glacier

Fingers crossed we should escape the Antarctic blast....

all seasons in one day 10 °C

Asked a million people today about the weather and seems we should beat it but then meet it at Christchurch...... The coastal road up the west coast is low (and the blast is coming in from South East) and the Tranzalpine train is hardly ever cancelled. Anyway....

Franz Josef turned out to be a little hidden gem... beautiful drive along the coast, really friendly people upon arrival, warm rainy afternoon, spectacular sights of the glacier and of a pair of Kea parrots to finish off the day.... oh, and happy hour and an apple & blackberry crumble ;-)
