Look kids -- Big Ben! Parliament!
My good friends Jen and Greg (collectively known as "The Hengeholds") are currently midway through a multi-week tour trek through Europe. I set them up with a website (http://www.hengeholdsonholiday.com) so they could update us folks back home. So far it's working great. They've been updating pretty regularly (via Internet Cafe, I imagine), and family and friends stateside having been posting comments back.
I really like this idea, because it also performs two other functions in addition to keeping everyone in touch:
- When they return, they'll have a great journal of their trip, not just a collection of random emails
- Thanks to the wonders of USB, they can also upload pictures from their camera periodically. This way they don't have to worry about filling up their memory cards (although I think they also brought along plenty of memory, so they might not have to use this feature)
Score another one for the Internet. Posted by Kevin at June 9, 2004 05:30 PM
