Punakaiki to Nelson

We had a long drive today from the West Coast on to the Northern part of the South Island. The highlight of the day was lunch at Jack Gasthof’s. I had not read about this place in the Lonely Planet (though it is mentioned, as we checked later). But we saw signs on the road, and decided to follow them.

Jack Gasthof’s is a small, but stylish place started by Germans. The menu is international (nachos, pizzas, etc.) with a fair number of vegetarian options. They had a small bar area (closed in the mornings, with a great music system. The place reminded me a lot of shacks in Goa.

The food was delicious as well, and very reasonably priced.

After lunch, we left the coast, and made our way inland. The scenery was no different to what we had encountered in the past, and by now, we were beginning to get fatigued. So, after reaching our camping ground in Nelson, we really had no energy to go out for dinner.
