    Default Earthquakes - Ever travelled to an earthquake prone country?

    Itís Shake Out day on 18th October, not sure if just for NZ or around the world. But being prone to big earthquakes we have a practice day each year where we pretend an earthquake is happening to test out our surroundings in case a real one hits.

    Iíve been in three rather large earthquakes (and too many to count smaller ones or aftershocks), one being a 7.8 so pretty scary!

    Have you been in a big earthquake before? Or travelled to a country prone to earthquakes and been slightly freaked out of one happening while youíre there?

    Indonesia has a lot of earthquakes and they are the recent news. I don't think I've ever traveled there though (not sure when I was young)

    I was in that MASSIVE earthquake the UK had a while back; the one the sensationalist newspapers claimed ROCKED BRITAIN. In actuality it was like magnitude 3.0 and caused some tiles to fall off a roof somewhere. That's the extent of my experience.

    Given the extent of fault lines, I'd be surprised if 90% of people had travelled to a country prone to earthquakes.

    I haven't experienced any earthquakes myself but I have been to San Francisco which is pretty earthquake prone.

    I can't think of any. I guess I visited India which is prone, but in the north?
