Frans Josef Glacier

It’s about 11am and I have half an hour before I check in for my helicopter flight over the Frans Josef and Fox Glaciers (with a side flight around the highest mountain in New Zealand – Mt Cook). I’m very excited now. I’ve only been in a helicopter once before and that was over the Great Barrier Reef – talk about doing it in style.

The sun is shining and the skies are blue with the odd fluffy cloud. The snow on the top of the mountains at the back of the hostel is glistening white, so I’ve got a funny feeling I will have LOTS of photos of this one!
