When i finally got out of Queenstown I continued my journey to the West Coast. There I visited Wanaka, Fox and Franz Josef Glacier and Punakaki.
Wanaka really is a nice town and in some way the nicer and friendlier version of Queenstown, but sadly its also alway booked out so i could only spend one day there.
As the West Coast is a low temperature rain Forrest, it rained. A lot. And in the village Fox Glacier 🙂
In the evening I went on a glowworm track which really was amazing, I saw a lot of them, but taking pictures did’t work as I have no camera that is capable of that.
The next day this this bridge sadly was closed as I tried to make my way to the Glacier without getting totally wet (Spoiler: I got totally wed…)
And sadly from the Car Park the way was closed because it was overflowed ;(
Back there you see a little bit of a Glacier.
Since I spend a nice evening in a bar with someone I med there it was a good and fun day after all (we also tried to get to the glacier together). The next day I decided not to go to the glacier and go to the circus instead, it was a really funny and young cast and going to a circus after many years and then to New Zealand it was really a funny experience.
After that my journey continued to Franz Josef.And this time there was no rain and I started my way to the Glacier.
This time it actually was possible to see the glacier.
And the Landscape along the way was beautiful too.
And at the Glacier.
The view to the other side 😀
And Shirley went there with me 🙂
The views on the way back also were fantastic 🙂
Took an extra way to a view point.
The next day I left in the direction of Punakaki, there i stayed in one of the best Hostels I’ve ever been to, had a beautiful view of the sunset and a nice hike the next day before I left, naturally I visited the Pancake Rocks :).
And the Pancake Rocks 🙂
And that was my trip around the West Coast.
