Usually when I travel, I generate long emails about what I have been doing and send them off to various email lists of friends and family. I have recently travelled for the first time with my own digital camera and when I got home I posted links to albums of my pathetic photos on Picasa to the usual suspects. As a point-and-click photographer my photos usually aren't up to much, but I tend to be more skillful with words than pictures, and have crafted at least some of the email bulletins with a lot of care.
I thought for the forthcoming trip I should try using a blog, posting only a few of the more interesting photos alongside my traveller's tales. So here I go with a few practice posts before we leave home in about 10 days, just to get a grip on the technology.
