There is never hurry in Twizel

A couple of weeks ago, Chris and I took my brother to New Zealand. Flew into Christchurch and then hired a car and drove along the west coast to Queenstown. Whilst it was a very long drive the scenary was more than worth it. Drove through Arthur's Pass and stayed a night at Franz Josef Glacier. The Glacier wasn't hugely impressive but the scenary against which it was set was amazing, especially on the drive from the Glacier onto Queenstown. Spent 3 days in Queenstow which was great apart from having to share a hostel dorm with the three most annoying 19 year old posh southern England losers that I have ever come across. The highlight was definitely climbing one of the mountains for an awesome view of the town. Drove back to Christchurch via a little town called Twizel - one of the most bizarre places I have ever been to and populated by pixies!
