South Island Tour Part 1

We completed the first part of our South Island road trip. We made stops at Queenstown, Te Anau, Milford Sound, Franz Josef Glacier, and Punakaiki. I must say the highlight for me personally is hiking up the Franz Josef Glacier. Even though it was raining the whole time we were hiking, the view and the experience of hiking on a glacier was still fantanstic. Half way hiking up the glacier, there were rocks falling off the opposite walls of the mountain. The noise that it made sounded as though a plane was flying right above us. We’ll have to post some pictures of the glacier soon.

Food stops on the way:

  • Surreal in Queenstown: I had Baked Cajun Blue Cod on Feta Mash — Excellent
  • Beeches in Franz Josef: I had Braised Lamb Shank — Loved It!!!
  • Te Anau after sunset
