About This Site

Why I Write
This is my travelogue.
It's purpose is to let my friends and family know I'm not lying half-dead in a ditch somewhere, fearfully eying the approach of rabid donkeys, by sharing a little about the places I visit, the people I interact with and the landscapes I encounter.
There are plenty of other blogs out there that go on (and on, and on) about career breaks and restarting one's life and the mechanics of long-term travel.  I don't have anything new to say and so I endeavor to refrain.
The title refers to photography.  My camera almost always has a wide-angle lens mounted.

This travelogue started in 1998 after I took my first trip abroad.  Back then it was hosted at my university shell account and all the markup and code was crafted by hand.

Now it's easy to piece together technology from Yahoo Pipes, Google Maps, Feedburner, Twitter, Flickr and Blogspot to do all the heavy lifting.  All I have to do is trust these benevolent corporations with my personal details.  What could go wrong?
