Kirsty and I have been talking about setting up a travel blog and I remembered that I had one from my previous drive across the USA a few years back. I tried to find it and low and behold here we are. This is more of a test rather than an official post as I want to check to see if this method has the features we're (I'm) after. I'm pretty sure Kirsty is just after your bog standard Tesco value blog site (photos + text), but me being a boy I want the all singing all dancing blog with bells on. My main requirement is something I saw on TV a few weeks ago, which I thought would be really awesome and that is location tracking. I'm sure I was watching some TV show in which someone had an app that would upload GPS co-ordinates to a site/blog to create pins or a path so that family and friends could see updates as to where you currently were. Google searches initially failed me as they just showed me your standard tracking apps that people use when they go for walks/runs/bike rides, which is not what I'm after. I just want a basic little app that will let me upload some GPS co-ordinates as and when I want to, not track me constantly and result in my battery running out just as I'm about to take a photo up Machu Picchu!
So here goes...
I'm currently sat at work waiting to start my shift so I'm on my work computer, but what if I want people to see a photo of this fantastic environment!?

Well, hopefully if things have been successful we should now have a location added to this blog once it's posted. I have mixed feelings about the location service. I had to manually select the location on the PC. I'm hoping that as an Android user (considering this blog is owned by Google) that there will be an ability to track location via Android's app for this blog. That's for another day. If I have to manually add locations then that's something I can handle I guess. What I would like though is a full scale world map showing where we are/were. I will have to play more...
Well! Until things progress I'll leave it here and hopefully soon we will have a full scale blog under way to let everyone track us! I hope you are all well!
Much love. xxxx
