My Travel page has hit the road.
I'm now able to make web-based photograph albums. The first six travelogue web-albums that I made (after a few modest experiments, some of which were successful and some of which were not) included photographs taken (a) on holidays that Heather and I have had in Australia, and (b) on some walks that Heather and I have done in New Zealand. Click on the words Tasmania 2007, Te Araroa/The Long Pathway, Kangaroo Island 2008, Belmont Regional Park, Tasmania 2009, or The Hillary Trail – either here or in the side-bar to the left of this paragraph – to go to one or other of these photograph albums. In addition, a copy of a report that I wrote about my November 2005 visit to Mongolia is accessible by clicking on the words Mongolia 2005 (again either here or in the side-bar).
Now that I've retired from full-time teaching and have concluded the consultancies that kept me busy till mid-2012, I have begun the task of creating other travel-related web-albums. I've a huge backlog of projects I want to work on, but I am pleased to say that I have at long last started the process of plugging some of the gaps I want to fill. Projects to which I will be giving priority are in brown type on the left-hand side-bar of this page. In this regard, I'm delighted to report that in mid-April 2013 I completed the first of a series of web-albums I'll be making about New Zealand's "Great Walks". More albums in the series will be coming a.s.a.p. A month later I also completed an album about the Four Peaks High Country Track, which Heather and I hiked together with friends during the 2013 Easter long weekend.
All in all, progress on this part of my website can accurately be characterised as slow but steady. However, if a picture is worth a thousand words, then there are already more than half a million 'words' on these pages for you to peruse and, hopefully, enjoy.
Happy viewing, pleasant reading, and bon voyage ...
