There's something new at Something New, Something Different today! Those of you who are particularly observant might have noticed the little "Travel" button I added to the header.
And if you were curious and clicked on it, it would show you a map. An interactive map of our travels, to be exact. The green pushpins indicate places we've gone together, while the Carolina blue (turquoise) pushpins are places only I have been. If, somehow, B winds up going somewhere by himself and then writing a blog post about it, that will be notated with a Furman purple pushpin. But I would strongly suggest not holding your breath for that, k?
If you click on each pushpin, you can see where we've been and follow the link to the corresponding blog post. This is an easy way for you to find what you're looking for if, say, you were curious about a restaurant we visited in Reims, or wanted to catch up on what we did in Germany. It's also a great way for SNSD newbies to catch up quickly without having to scroll through all the posts, especially if they're only interested in the travel ones.
You can zoom the map in and out to see all the places I've tagged in a specific country, or you can see an overview of where we've visited in the world.
I will, of course, update the map as our travels take us far and wide. And since we just booked our 17-day August Eurotour vacation last night (God bless France's holiday schedule!), we've got Italy, Greece, England and Ireland coming up on the agenda, plus the potential for weekend trips to the Netherlands, Belgium and the south of France. Not to mention Italy and Austria coming up with my parents. To say I'm excited is an understatement.
Check it out and let me know what you think. Y'all should know by now I'm the anti-techie, so if you find any bugs or kinks let me know. Not that I'll know how to fix them, mind you, but at least I'll be aware. And keep in mind that this technically works on an iPhone, etc, but it's easier on an actual computer. Go forth and enjoy, and have a wonderful weekend!
