these shoes are made for walking (New Zealand 15)

In today’s adventures : hiking. (period)
Today at breakfast, we ended up with a very funny couple of Brits. After their hopeless attempts to get us interested in cricket, we went of for a day on the Franz Josef Glacier.
Franz Josef Glacier is the starting point for a great hike in these lovely mountains. So we took full advantage. We walked up to the foot of the mountain, to a great pool (Peter’s pool) where I could take some great pictures in the reflection of the water, to a viewing point over the glacier and to a lake nearby (Wombat Lake).

At the end of the afternoon, we were in urgent need for sugar, and went back to town. We had a quick, but by New Zealand standards (more about that later) good meal. Tomorrow we will be spending most of our day in the car, so an early night today.
