  Westland Tai Poutini   Four seasons a day and waterfalls a stone’s throw away.  We’re halfway through our seven day trip along the Southern Island of Aotearoa and we find ourselves in a beautiful green wonderland, Franz Josef. A magical place where temperature drops within minutes.    New Zealand is not only known as the long white cloud and the land of waterfalls but she also has a largely temperate climate. From subtropical weather and abundant sunshine to ice cold temperatures and moderate rainfall, which explains her stunning surroundings.
