We got to the ferry port just on time to check in at 7:20 and were soon on our way, and three hours (and a bit of sea-sickness) later, we arrived on the South Island ready for a new adventure. We drove west to a place called Motueka and stayed in a Top 10 Holiday … More Travelling NZ’s South Island (Part 1 – The Golden Bay, Driving the West Coast, Franz Josef, Wanaka, Queenstown & Te Anau)
This week we made it to the South Island, and the other day Rachel and I did something I’ve always wanted to do, climb Franz Josef Glacier, down on the south west coast. And it was amazing…we went right up onto the glacier itself, walking all over the ice, with crampons and everything! So cool.
