The glacier trek was probably the best thing I have ever done. Mostly because of the helicopter. The glacier was pretty cool, don't get me wrong, but the helicopter that just made my life!
My most ridiculous today I'm wearing post ever - crampons. They don't sound nice at all, a combination of two words that are frankly awful, I don't think I need to spell it out for you.
Our guide was Sam, who was amazing. He'd worked in China, Nepal and all over New Zealand doing treks like this. Sam was a badass.
This is the most epic photo of my that will ever exist. I should just give up now.
We were given these as well for a tasty little geography lesson...
Did you also know a Moro bar is actually a Mars bar in NZ, because I didn't and was really annoyed this wasn't an actual Moro bar!
I even got to catch one last glimpse of the glaciers while flying back to North Island.
