8 weeks in and I absolutely adore Christchurch. It’s such a cool little city, but with such spirit. The 2011 earthquake devastated the city; ripped the heart out of the CBD, destroyed the TV building, the cathedral, the rugby stadium and most of the hotels. Just a shell of a city remaining.

Since then, Cantabrians have pulled together to rebuild their city. A shopping mall in shipping containers. Buildings springing back up. It’s given Christchurch an opportunity to start from scratch, to build the city they want. I have every confidence that it’s going to be a belter.
