My World Trip 2012 - version 1.1 Back to David's Websites


This website is dedicated to my world trip, which occured back in June 2012.

Most nights I would email a day's summary to friends,family, and workmates. Most times I'd try to send a photo as well. Well that proved great as a dirary of sorts. Because I took over 9000 pictures - including still and movies on two cameras I knew no one would ever see them all.

So I needed a summary of sorts. So I decided to do some condensing. First up was going and on a backup copy, reorganise the photos. Then a quick check to get rid of those terrible shots of the trousers,sky, or too blurred. But still a huge amount of files.

Next up was a request to write an article for DVR, but due to health reasons I couldn't do it in time. But IT did get me wanting to document the trip while I still remembered most of it. Especially the Americaan leg which I didn't record much at he time. So I have created a series of .pdf files which used the emails as a basis. Ia dded, altered etc. the text. And lots of photos. Captions added if I had a speciic reference - you will note the lack of captions.

Now if I made the trip as one file it would be huge. So decided this website allowing you to select and take your time going through the trip.
