Remniscing New Zealand

3 years ago, D and I packed our boys into a 4 seater camper van and did a road trip around the South Island of New Zealand.

It was a mad trip. We drove A LOT during the eleven days and then found a camping site at night to hook up the electricity to the van for heating purposes. I gave up after 5 nights and we got an apartment for the rest of the trip. I won't say that I am keen to explore the campervan route again BUT New Zealand can happen for me any time and any day. In fact, I would have no quelms retiring in that place.

There is everything to love there. The fresh air. The breathtaking scenery. The All Blacks! Vineyards. Fresh food and lots of sports to do. Well... if I had my way, I would love to visit again. Sooner, rather than later.

So it was devastating to hear about the second earthquake in Christchurch this morning. This time, a whole lot more serious than the last one , which was only six months back. My heart goes to the people.

For now, I am only hoping that we can have thse memories again.
