This weekend James and I headed up the West Coast for my pre-birthday celebration! The drive from Queenstown to Franz Josef is around 4.5 hours and is just spectacular! We spent two full days in the tiny, tiny, tiny town of Franz Josef staying warm in the Glow Worm Cottages and enjoying the Glacier Hot Pools and local restaurants! I love this sleepy little town as you can walk from one side to the next in under 5 minutes and the locals are so friendly.
We left feeling very relaxed and already planning the next visit!
