Trip to Frans Josef


We had a trip to the West Coast and OMG we were so lucky because:
We have traveled with our Dutch friends we know since we live in New Zealand. we did many trips with them.

We had a room at Hostel Franz Josef Montrose where the price is good, you receive breakfast and soup at 8 pm, the staff is very friendly and it is clean. Usually I don't give reviews but this is an exception.It is great to stay at a backpacker as you meet people from all over the world.

It had rained all week over there-the days we had were dry and we had a lot of sun shine as well-after the trip the rain will come back again. You usually never have snow on the mountains at this time of the year, but now we did. Because of the snow everything looked even more spectacular.

We had a great walk, visited two glaciers and had coffee in a top location On the way back we had some marvelous views on lake Mapourika We are so blessed. Underneath some photos. Hope you like it

  1. Breathtaking pictures! I particularly liked the ones with the snow on the mountains, the man on the bridge and...the cup of coffee. Well, you live in a most beautiful country of the world, and its remoteness is an advantage, if you look at what's happening now in the world - we're probably on the verge of a bloody war in the Middle East which coud easily turn into a world war.

  8. Breathtaking trip you had -love all the beach pics! And the car in the water - half amusing, but also feeling sorry! Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful trip with ALL SEASONS! Of course it does not have to be a trip, "little daily" seasonal experiences are just as good:) Have a happy week!

  9. Hi Marja, lovely photos you got there. I've just been to NZ once and i am envious at once with the people living there, my sister is in Auckland. We visited some places and the bus trip to Milford Sound was really great, love those snow caps and glaciers at the horizon. How i wish i can go there again and be in those mountains you showed.

    Regarding my butterfly posts, i realized that they do not flutter as much in the cold than when in my own garden that is hot and drier. The area i went to is our highlands, subtropical, and the butterflies get difficultry flying much. So, thanks for visiting my blog.

  12. Thank you for the beautiful slide. Thanks for your comment. Such a pity that the fishermen throw these shells away. They can sell them to tourists.

  13. Stunning shots of the Glacier. Not sure I'd cross that bridge though.

  14. I really need to get out more! Can't believe all that fascinating beauty is so nearby. I loved the evening bush walk photos and several others but I can't recall all the numbers - maybe #13, #42 and actually all your photos are wonderful.
