shaky isles

This may sound weird but one of the things I miss about New Zealand is the geological activity. I miss the earthquakes; miss having the ground roll under my feet.

Australia is very still. You can't get much more stable & solid than Aussie bedrock. Good ol' dependable Australia.

It's soooo fucking dull.

Not having to quake-safe your home is just weird. Nothing ever falls off shelves (unless you leave the cat inside all day by accident). You never have to look for doorways to run to in the event of a quake. No cities conveniently built on fault-lines and volcanoes. A distressing lack of falling masonry.

Of course there's still bomb threats, but they're just not the same.

Ahh homesickness; weird, strange and slightly disturbing homesickness..
