Site technology
This web site is probably one of the best examples of using the best free software and technology available to bring web content live within a small period of time. These are some of the technologies I've used in implementing this site:


Online web logging software, customised as a online travel journal for this site.

  Powered By GreyMatter


Interpreted server-side scripting language for developing and integrating web site and database access components. PHP/FI was used to integrate Greymatter with the Photo Log.

Can I use these photos?
Photos can be used for personal use only and can not be used on other web sites or commercial purposes. Higher resolution pics can be obtained by contacting me.
