A picture I managed to take at work. Quite embarrassing but also quite hilarious.
Over the last 20+ years, I’ve made it a habit to document most of my trips. They started off in the form of a text document which I’d then attach with photos and email to a list of interested individuals. They then progressed to a simple web page while others were interactive with clickable maps.
Unfortunately, that good habit was offset by my bad habit of not taking good backups. Because of that, a lot of content has been lost due to sloppy migration procedures, careless handling of files and pure laziness.
One of these days, I’ll have to go through a pile of floppies and IDE drives and see if I can retrieve some useful files. But in the meantime, here are some old trips I was able to scrap together. Most of the content is from 10+ years ago and as such, the formatting and presentation is quite dated. However, I’m hoping that someone will find the content worthwhile and useful.
