A quick post to share our images from Franz Josef Glacier. How strange it is to see a glacier from a rainforest… I did not know this was possible.
Sorry about the kiwis I told you about yesterday, but there is no footage.
1/ the activity was very disappointing : only 3 kiwis “on display”, and you had to spot them in the dark as they are night time birds; They may have been kiwi-puppets… it was so dark, we couldn’t really tell !
2/ they did not make any noise, not even a small cry;
3/ we were not allowed to record anything on picture or film.
For tomorrow, we changed our plans. Queenstown will wait for now, as we are going to stay one nigh in a wilderness lodge nested in the rainforest.
