Do you know many people who have hiked a glacier? Well you know at least one - me! Yes me! I know, I can't really believe it either. Hiking and climbing are so not my thing. A popular saying in New Zealand is ''get amongst it'' - so when I was there that was the attitude that I had to take on. I did a lot of things in New Zealand that I never thought I would do - bungy jumping, skydiving, zorbing (http://www.google.co.uk/images?hl=en&q=zorbing&um=1&ie=UTF-8&source=og&sa=N&tab=wi) to name a few. And glacier hiking. I'm not going to lie, it was hard. And I probably wouldn't do it again. But it was beautiful and rewarding. I was so proud of myself and Alyson when we got to the top and looking back on it I think it was pretty bad ass. Totally worth the week of sore legs to earn the bragging rights and to have the wonderful memories. Check out a few of my favorite pics below -
