When Ian Durston and his wife Melanie decided to emigrate to Christchurch, New Zealand, they were looking for adventure. However, once in their new home, they got a bit more adventure than they bargained for as Christchurch was hit by three major earthquakes.
Emigrating to the other side of the world with three young sons, no job, and never having been to New Zealand before, Ian Durston tells the fascinating story of his family’s escapade, from deciding to move, sorting out all the paperwork, finding a job, and settling into life in a brand new country. Oh yes, and how they dealt with large earthquakes!
A story of adventure, family, natural disaster, friends, life, and regular breaks for coffee, this book covers all the practicalities and emotions of emigrating to one of the most beautiful countries in the world.
