update and testing

This post is primarily to check if posting by emails works 🙂 Everything is sorted. We’ll arrive Thursday local time in Auckland and will be picked up by my lovely friend P. We will be crashing at her place and she even has a car for us o drive until we have sorted ourselves and rental car out. We’ve contacted E. and we’ll probably will be meeting her at her place or something at some stage. We’ll get that sorted too, we’ll manage.

I spent half the afternoon listening to NewsTalkZB, but after a while it does become depressing. It is wonderful how people offer help and everything else to their fellow people and make contact for others that are missing or have no way of contacting loved ones. It is clear that at a time like this radio is a real comfort to a lot of people.  It is currently a state-of-emergency in Christchurch, so we decided to stay away from it. We have tried to contact the hotel we booked, but we are not even sure it is still standing. We sent a mail to cancel and E. too will try to follow up.

So we will fly in about an hour. Exciting? Most certainly, even more with everything that is going on at present. Whatever this holiday may bring it definitely will not be a boring time.

My blog is simply about my life. I moved countries for the first time in 1993. I lived in the Netherlands, UK and NZ. The initial idea was to keep my overseas friends up-to-date with what was going on in my life. The blog, like me, is always changing and evolving.
