Featured, New Zealand, Road trip / 22.03.2015

(Or places to swim in glacier water if you’re into that kind of thing)

Wild ocean, untamed glaciers, lush wilderness, icy pools, laid-back beach towns, you can find them all along a single road in the South Island: State Highway 6. It sounds like one hell of a road trip and we couldn’t wait to drive our Jucy through here. We did this drive in 2 days, but we could’ve easily made it in 4. There’s just so much to see! One famous quote rang true in every mile of the West Coast: "It's not about the destination, it's about the journey." Some would argue it’s not about the destination or the journey, but about the company (and I would have to agree), but I digress
Hiking, New Zealand / 20.03.2015

(Or that time I pulled my shoulder in an ice cave)

They had me at ‘crampons’. When researching all of the fun, unusual, and insane activities we could do in New Zealand, we came across doing a Franz Josef Glacier heli hike. Exploring a glacier? Sounds cool. Exploring a glacier with cool equipment, arriving in helicopter, and getting to climb down ice caves? Hell. Yeah.
