Day Four: Glaciers

We woke up bright and early to catch a small plane tour over the Franz Josef glacier. There were 7 of us on the plane in total including the pilot, so a very small plane.

This flight was the highlight of our trip but I’m very excited about what lies ahead in Queenstown. We drove another five hours down the south west coast to Queenstown and it was soooo picturesque. Just a few more pictures.

Tomorrow we go skiing for the first time ever,please pray we don’t break anything!
