Te Araroa 115
24th January, Tuesday
Lazy day with a lazy start, sleeped in until 7 o’clock.
After a coffee it was time I visited the 4 square to do my shopping to last me for the next 8 days on trail. cost about 120 dollars with not to much in the way of luxury food like chocolates. (15 dollars per day on trail)
Yesterday we had already decided to have lunch at the skyline restaurant which requires a gondola ride up the hill.
The food was amazing , I ate so much and targeted the meats and fresh vegetables.
I would definitely return to the skyline restaurant should I return to QQueenstown.
View overlooking Queenstown
Yesterday before deciding to have a buffet at the Skyline restaurant , I had already purchased a ticket for an Indian buffet for 6:30 tonight. Two buffet in one day. I feel like a pig. but I don’t mind as starting tomorrow, I’ll be eating just dehydrated food and doing 30 kms walking per day.
Another large meal for the day at Boliwood Indian restaurant, I had thought it was going to be another buffet but instead it was a set menu, but it’s the best Indian meal I’ve had for sale long time. basically it was a two course mean but I walked out full and happy.
Cost of the skyline restaurant which includes the gondola ride up the hill was 60 dollars. tonight’s Indian buffet is 19 dollars.
