NZ road trip – Day 18 – Nelson – Hokitika 

A long day ahead as we aimed for the Woodstock Hotel/Pub which was just outside Hokitika. At around 130 years old this pub had great reviews for food and drink. You could stay in their car park with access to toilets for $5, yes please. 

A miracle happened when my phone finally got unlocked by pure sweat and tears dealing with O2. Never using them again. After brekky, a coffee and bit of planning we set off on the 6 hour journey. We stopped off at Westport for lunch then saw the Pancake Rocks on our way to the pub. Apart from this it was a day of travelling and driving to our next destination to get nearer to Franz Josef.

In the evening we stuffed ourselves with some pub food, had a few drinks and played some pool. I got destroyed by Scott. The next coming days we plan to go to Franz Josef to see some glaciers, hot pools and be around this awesome area. The only mare is the weather coming up. Can’t control these things and all you can do is weigh it up.
