How can the site be improved?

June 29th, 2007

(Renamed from “The site looks rubbish!”)  Help us to make it better! What, specifically, do you feel could be improved? How, in your view, could they be fixed? We’re really open to your feedback. Those who have worked with me know that I have a rule about criticism, constructive or otherwise: If you’re going to […]

The site looks great! Did you do it all by yourself?

June 29th, 2007

Not quite; although I have put a lot of time and effort into it. For those that care, the technologies that go into it are detailed in the about the site page.

What will we do when we come back?

June 28th, 2007

Who said that we were coming back?! Maybe we’ll find our dream home en route; we’re keeping an open mind. For the time being, it’s more important for us to really experience our adventure without worrying about what happens if/when we get back. Right now, it’s both exciting and uncomfortable being in this space of […]

What are we doing with all of our stuff?

June 27th, 2007

We’ll be leaving most of our ‘big’ furniture and kitchen stuff in the flat for our tenants to enjoy. Surplus technology will be sold-off and non-essential clothes will go to charity, or to be recycled. Anything remaining, that we just can’t bear to part with, will be kindly put into parental storage at various locations […]

What are we doing with our flat?

June 27th, 2007

We are very fortunate to be renting to a lovely couple who are friends of ours, so we are happy in the knowledge it will be well looked after and our friends will have a nice home for a while.

How else will we stay in touch?

June 26th, 2007

As you’re reading this, we don’t have to tell you that the Internet has opened a new world of possibilities for communication. Both Squiffy & I are on e-mail, Facebook, Instant-Messaging and Skype — although it’s quite unlikely that we’ll be on the latter two for any length of time as we’ll likely be on […]

How often will we post to this blog?

June 26th, 2007

We really hope to post between 3-5 entries a week. There’s little worse than a blog that starts-off with a thousand entries in the first fortnight and then just one post a month after that. Rather, we’ll be pacing our postings throughout the week. Having said all of this, I want to ask you ahead […]

Who is the audience for this blog?

June 24th, 2007

You are! Family, friends and people who don’t yet know us. You’re all very welcome. We’re mindful that we need to write for an audience in which some folks have known us for many years and others have only just surfed-in by chance and don’t know us at all. As such, we’ll try to limit […]

How are we funding it?

June 23rd, 2007

I’ve a man of simple tastes and have worked really hard over the last 8 years for this opportunity. Rather than spraying the walls of nightclubs with Cristal, I’ve been steadily squirrelling away what little scraps of cash I can, here and there, into my aptly named Foxtrot Oscar fund. Squiffy is a top-flight TEFL* […]

Have we travelled before?

June 22nd, 2007

daveb says: Not massively, no; although in 2004 I drove an anti-clockwise loop around the US in a 36-foot motorhome with my great friend Martian and my [now ex-]girlfriend Tina. Somewhat curiously, I came home without a girlfriend and Martian came home with a wife! We were hardcore backpackers right up to about day four, […]
