      ... it was a city I got to know pretty well.
      Not any more.
      The devastating earthquake that hit in February 2011, killing 185 has changed the city beyond recognition.
      As we drove to the centre from the airport, I was shocked at the destruction that slaps you in the face as if the quake were yesterday. House after house boarded up or surrounded by scaffolding. Once we got to the centre, it was a cross between a war zone and the worlds largest building site. The CBD's tall ...

      After a good time in, around and at times on the boulders we then moved on. We had a lot of distance to try to cover to get to Christchurch so it was just a case of drive, drive, drive. We got to the ...

      ... and walked and happened upon this metal structure. Rach was over the moon it had remained! Behind this was the cathedral, this was in a bad shape, uncertain repairs are even possible. After an emotional afternoon we sat down to enjoy dinner together before checking in at a bed and breakfast in Christchurch. After ringing the doorbell a man opened the door. He reminded Rach of Manwell from faulty towers, a little eccentric! We felt it safest not to ask for any room service ...
