We made our way to Franz Joseph to try and hike on the glacier, but were foiled by the rain gods who declared that:
“On this day, it shall piss it down like a bugger and the mist should lie so low that the people cannot even begin to say which direction the glacier layeth in!
They shall be forced to wade like a duck to the corner shop in their hunt for a Magnum ice-cream and then spend the day quaffing more wine and playing numerous games of Scrabble”.
And so we rest tonight before tomorrow’s slightly dangerous activities – something to do with quad biking and a boat that misses rocks!!
I send my love and very big hugs and urge you all to come over here and be mesmerized by the amazing landscape.
In the meantime, I waggle my tongue in your general direction…

I am seriously thinking of remaining here and setting up my own Māori harem to attend to my every whim. Please forward money to allow my dream to become reality.
Alternatively, please come up with good excuses I can use at work in order to stay here for at least another couple of weeks!!!
