the website

I've added a couple links on the main blog page already, but let's have an official announcement of sorts - I now have a travel website: I had wanted a site that would link together a map of where I'm traveling, the blog, and photos from along the way in some sort of an intelligent fashion. Unfortunately, I ran out of time before I could add the photo functionality in, so, I suppose, I'll just have to post links to any future photo albums to the blog. However, if you want to work on your geography based on random places where Alex has been, it's all there for you - so try it, and let me know if it's broken (because on occasion it is...)!

As background, my inspiration was the map sites that the Mongol Rally and Rickshaw Run people had for those events. Our site from the 2008 Rickshaw Run is here: I chose to use the Rickshaw Run as my prototype, and here's my version: It's in no way perfect, or even finished, but I like to think it's an improvement on what we ended up with from the adventurists...

Posts without pictures are boring, so a couple of shots from Tokyo:
