Bangkok round 4

We’re back in Bangkok for the fourth time now. I successfully picked up my new passport, and now I have 48 shiny new blank pages to fill with visas and stamps in Africa. Tomorrow we’re leaving for Khao Sok National Park in the south of Thailand, and I have to say that it’s almost strange to be on the move again after nearly three weeks of stationary relaxing on Koh Tao. We’re getting used to the feeling of shouldering our packs again :)

We realized yesterday while reminiscing over some older photos that we neglected to post our album from Cinque Terre in Italy, which we visited way back in November of 2009. It’s now up on the photos page, way down between Tuscany and Switzerland. Better late than never, right?

New photos uploaded

We’ve uploaded a whopping 5 new albums to our photos page, including pics from Laos, Angkor Wat in Cambodia, and Thailand. Enjoy!

Avatar

Good movie, if you don’t consider the plot and the dialogue. However, this is about a blog avatar. If you’d like a little photo of yourself to appear when you comment on people’s blogs, like wewander.ca, it’s easy! Go to gravatar and sign-up. The photo is related to whatever email you sign up with. So whenever you type in your email to a site like ours it will automatically appear! FYI.

wewander updates

Some of you may have noticed a couple of new little icons in the navigation bar at the top of our site. That’s right — we’ve added new stuff! During our delay in Medan, we made some improvements and updates to our site:

1. Check out the new and improved About Us page! That’s the new little “i” icon up there, by the way. Many of you have been asking us about budgets and costs, so we’ve added a whole bunch of information about the financial side to our travels. We’ve also started to add some links to the sidebar, pointing to sites that we’ve found useful or inspiring as we go.

2. The footprints icon will take you to our Breadcrumb, were we’ve added some cool new stats, as well as modified the map to focus more on the most recent legs of our travels. Now when I write about a nightmarish 14 hour bus ride, it’s even easier to zip over to our Breadcrumb to see where exactly it took place.

3. Our main page now has two new items in the sidebar: “Recent Comments” and “Featured Posts”, to make it easier to keep up with the latest activity on the site, and to make our most popular posts even easier to find.

4. In the update category, we’ve posted two new albums on the Photos page: Sumatra pt. 2 and our Christmas in Singapore album, which we’d somehow overlooked until now.

We’re pretty excited about the evolution of wewander.ca. There are more changes on the way soon, so be on the lookout. We’d also love to hear what you think of the new content. So leave a comment or send us an email directly using the new “Contact Us” section on our About Us page.
