Why I can't post photos from Lifedrive.

It appears that Blogger only supports certain browsers and certain functions on said browsers. My Lifedrive doesn't have those browsers and Palm does not have any that will allow me to post photos. I suppose I should be happy it works at all?

In case you are wondering what a Lifedrive is, check here:

Oh well, I may be able to add photos from an Internet cafe, or you all may have to wait until I get home.

Testing the uploading of photos.

I can't figure out how to do it from the Palm. I don't get the same icons I get on the regular computer, so I don't know how I can upload photos directly.

This photo is from Sicily, btw.

Testing, 1 2 3 4, Testing, 1 2 3 4 ...

Testing to see if I can post to blog from Lifedrive.

I tried yesterday, but could not get a the cut and paste function working. So, today I installed a wireless, portable keyboard.

Looks like it works!

Wow! This is new...

Someone once referred to us as "one of the original bloggers".

Hmmmm...then why am I just starting a Blog now?

Well, way back in 1998, in the early dawn of personal websites on the Internet, my husband David and I (Kristina) started http://www.wired2theworld.com/. This was our "travelogue" website for our round-the-world trip so our family and friends could follow along on our 9 month journey. At the time, we felt alone in the universe and we were. So much so, that the following year were were interviewed by the NY Times in an article about "Techno-nomads" (http://www.geocities.com/Baja/5752/links/links04_travel.htm).

Who knew that in a few short years, everyone and their brother would have their own website and later their own blog?

Who knew that the website would become my labor of love and stay alive through countless subsequent journeys?

So here I am today, almost 10 years later starting my first blog.

Why am I doing it? So I can "return to my roots" of posting from the road, this time unencumbered by computer, modem, phone lines, and "dial-up" access. My goal is to see if I can post my next trip on the fly using just my PDA (Palm Lifedrive) and digital camera. Then, after I get home, I'll move everything over to the website and add more details and photos.

Depending on wi-fi access, it just might happen!

Stay tuned....Budapest, Vienna, and Prague are coming in March 2007!
