I’ve been a frequent international traveller since I was twenty years old, and I’ve been keeping journals of those trips the whole time. A few years back, I started sharing some of the journal entries with an email list of friends and family. Recently, a few friends (those not smart enough to correctly configure their spam filters) have asked me why I don’t post these entries to the blog.
The answer is pretty simple. I generally figure that people read my blog because they’re interested in what I’m talking about, not specifically that they’re interested in me. Travel posts tend more to be about me, and therefore for friends and family, not for the seven people nice enough to subscribe to the blog.
Hence, this solution: I’m publishing some of my recent posts, illustrated with photos, on this blog as “pages”, not as posts. If you’re interested in this sort of thing, you can follow the links below and read the stories. If you’re not, you can ignore them and future posts won’t clutter your RSS reader.
