Everything can change in a minute
Yesterday I was fairly gutted to hear that my adopted country and hometown, Christchurch, New Zealand was rocked by a major earthquake. This sort of news is something no one wants to hear, especially about a place so near and dear to one’s heart.
Below is a video highlighting some of quake’s the aftermath:
For those of you who haven’t had the good fortune to visit the amazingly awesome country of New Zealand, I can tell you with great enthusiasm that there is a very good reason NZ is fondly referred to as ‘Godzone’. Not only is New Zealand stunningly beautiful but so too is the spirit of its people.
Kiwis are hardy souls and no doubt my fellow Cantabrians are already focused on productively moving forward …which is but another reason why I ♥ New Zealand.
