How a blog should be

Some good friends of mine, Peter and, Susan have set off on their adventures around the world. Pete decided to set up a blog to document their travels - aroundaboutway.com

It's an awesome mashup of technologies and techniques :)

  • Smart, tidy design work by Pete
  • Wordpress Blogging Engine
  • Photos hosted on Flickr with...
  • ... a nice image slideshow to display them inline
  • Audio clips of their travels playable whilst navigating photos (Pete is taking audio samples of places he visits, a wonderful idea!)
  • Integrated Google maps showing where each blog post was made, as they travel across europe.

I love this blog because it weaves technology together in a smart way. It's nothing new really, but a great example nonetheless.
