Road Trip: Christchurch to Punakaiki to Franz Josef

Hi all, it's been hard to cut down the photos of this trip because everything in the South Island is so darned scenic!! Some photos are on my bf's camera, and some are on Ed's huge camera, so you are in luck as I won't be tempted to spam you with even MORE shots!

Ed is better now - he made a great recovery and even joined my bf and I with 8 friends at an engagement dinner on Friday night after being released from hospital just hours earlier!! He's back in the sunny Bahamas now where he can recoup in the heat!

Snow in Christchurch!
The bf and his sister!

My "brother-in-law" having fun in the snow!!

Arthur's Pass is in the background

The West Coast

Trying to keep the glamour with some red lippy!!!

This is a tradition I started several years ago whilst driving around Madeira so I always try and get this shot on holidays!

A bar in Franz Josef - before the dreadful glacier hike the next day!!

Ed played in a pool tournament. A girl won!!
