Virgin Blue supports #Blog4NZ

Beautiful New Zealand

March 21, 22, and 23 have been set aside by travel bloggers throughout the world as 72 hours of content generation to highlight why travelling to New Zealand is an absolute must for anyone thinking about taking a holiday or seeing the world!

Entitled #Blog4NZ, it is the brain-child of New Zealand travel bloggers Jim McIntosh and John Reese who wanted to raise tourism awareness for the March earthquake that devastated Christchurch.

John who lives in Christchurch shares, “We want a total black-out of travel content across the world, we want Twitter dominated by Tweets about travelling to New Zealand, we hope that all travel bloggers rally behind this cause and publish as many articles as possible throughout this period about travelling to New Zealand” said event organiser Craig Martin.

Over the next few days we’ll be posting though twitter, great examples of what to do and what to see in New Zealand, as told by members of our own staff.

We too, love to travel, so make sure you are following us on twitter here and stay tuned to the twitter hashtag #Blog4NZ for the best things about one of the most beautiful places on the planet, New Zealand!

Make sure you keep up to date with our posts here or on Twitter – you could just find your next inspiration to travel!

    This is such a good idea. We traveled to South Island of New Zealand, including Christchurch in 2006 and just loved it. Will follow #Blog4NZ! Best of luck guys.
