New Zealand’s Darkest Day

I read with sadness this morning the news that Christchurch has been hit by another earthquake just months after the last one in Septembers 2010.  While they were lucky the last time having had no fatalities, this time around the quake was not as strong, however 65 people are reported to have been killed with that number likely to rise.  

I have spent some time in the city and it is a great place with some beautiful buildings, especially the cathedral which has been hit badly.  One can only sympathise with the people of this part of the world what with cyclones, floods, earthquakes and forest fires endured in the last few months.  You can see full details of the recent earthquake by clicking here.

Earthquake in Christchurch

With Christchurch being a popular destination for our clients visiting New Zealand, we were very concerned about the earthquake there this weekend.  Click here for the latest news.

After being in touch with our staff in New Zealand it was good to know there have been no fatalities and the damage to most of the hotels we use has been cosmetic.  The courses also seem to have been largely unaffected. It will take a while for things to be back to normal… but it could have been so much worse.
