- You can see all the photos in a gallery post two ways. You can click each number to change the photo displayed, however, the size will stay small, and photos that are supposed to be oriented vertically will be cropped horizontally. The best way to view the photos is to click the photo displayed, which will pop the photo out larger, and then you can either click the arrow buttons or use your keyboard’s arrow keys to scroll through the gallery. If you want to see a bigger version of the picture, click the plus sign in the upper right corner of the photo. (Note: this feature on the photo galleries we’ve added to date might not work as well, but we’re changing some settings starting with the next gallery post.)
- Get an email once a day (only if we’ve made a new post, and if we’ve made multiple posts, they’ll be in the same email) by clicking the gear icon in the upper right hand corner, then clicking the little envelope in the menu that pops down. Enter your email address to confirm your subscription. Full text of the new posts will come through, but photos and video will not, so you’ll want to click through to the website.
- If you use an RSS reader to keep track of blogs, the RSS link is in the same drop down menu. (What is an RSS reader?)
- We just added a Map page and a Contact page on the top menu.
I’m finally writing our first real travel blog post now that we’re sitting on our flight from Iceland to Scotland. Iceland was good to us. The weather exceeded our expectations, with just some sporadic light showers and wind. We met some good people, too. It feels nice to sit. We’ve packed a lot into the last several days (and many kilometers on the rental car) and the long daylight hours kept us out so late that we usually went straight to bed instead of writing. I did make a point to sort and process our photos each night, so at least that part is ready to go.
Rather than a long “on Day 1 we went to X and saw Y and then we ate Z” monologue about the Iceland leg, we thought we’d group some (hopefully) interesting categories together. Kind of like those arty movies with the scenes all out of chronological order. Maybe.
