Website Updates

I have just updated some of the sidebars so they are in drop down menus which I think is more aesthetically pleasing and it also is a little more functional rather than having to scroll down loads to get to the archives section.

I also added some tabs onto the Route page, to which I plan to add some content very soon! At the moment everything is a bit of a shell, with not much content which I appreciate isn’t all that enticing, however when I start updating and adding and detailing plans, the website should develop and (hopefully) be quite decent.

Finally, I have written a summary of the 2005/06 blog which links to the wordpress site, and updated the flickr photos.

New home

I have created a new home for the blog about Latin America, to which I have added new ‘About‘, ‘Planning‘ and ‘Route‘ information pages, which summarise the whole blog and provide equipment lists and reviews. I will be adding the final chapters in the coming days, with trip conclusions to bring everything to a long overdue close.

There is also a link in the top right hand corner of the site entitled 2005/06 Latin America, which if you click on it will take you directly to the site.

All of this is being done with a view to making this the home page for the next instalment of my travels, further details of which will be coming soon.


I have been looking for a way of putting a different picture up on the site everytime someone logs on (as you should see on the top right of this page), and this neat little plugin for wordpress is exactly what I wanted.

My poor IT skills couldn’t get it to work, so I posted a comment on the site asking for help, got a reply immediately and it was up and running within the hour. Superb.

…in the beginning

So this is it. Welcome to the blog, weblog, travelogue, or any other kind of log you can think of. It’s taken a while, and a lot of me thinking “…i really don’t know what the hell I am doing with the whole website thing,” but I think it is now accesible and if (in the unlikliest of events) anyone ever should stumble across this site, they should see all my efforts! Well that is the effort of the good people who have designed the format for this page and actually installed the stuff onto it that I need.
