Great observations in 2004 about climate change...
in 2013 the average global temperature hasn't increased in 16 years, and the IPPC has fallen into disrepute...about to release version 5 of their reports.

Good decision...
not going back to seven to seven, traveling while living off your IT skills, and keeping Travelblog (in caps) going.

Your hopes were fulfilled...
more than a few people are now writing on this site. And thanks for allowing the "diaries" to be back dated, which allowed me to go back all the way to 1949.

Travel blogs have come a long way since your first Travelblog...
and TB has a long way to go still. Thanks for making this possible!

The state of the interwebs...
11 years on (2013) I just took a look at the links I posted on this blog back in 2002, not one of the three are relevant now, Lehman is bankrupt, Old Spitalfields has a proper domain now, and Wetherspoons let the domain lapse. Time to update the links.

This site helped change my life.......
My whole travel experience was made just that bit more perfect with this site. I have always thanked you for creating it as it helped create the new me, and the sheer goodness that has come from this time. The changes I was forced to make in 2007 were challenging and at times painful, writing my experiences here not only brought back my creativity but helped others too, in 2013 and in hindsight these were the best days of my life without a doubt. Although better days are here now as a direct result. Ali thank you for your vision dedication and for giving me the confidence to scuba dive and teaching me how to roll backwards off a rocking boat at sea and for your continued friendship. I think the entire travel population on here wish to thank you for making many lives happy.

I've just been in the Ijen crater and saw that guys. I do agree - it's the worst job one could think of. But I don't feel sorry for them. From what I've seen they just don't care about their life at all. They live no longer than 45 years because their lungs get burnt. But they don't even cover their faces when they get into clouds of volcanic gas. Moreover, inhaling that pioson every day is not enough for them, most of them smoke! I just can't imagine what must be in their heads to kill themselves like that.

Fab photos!
Such intense colors and great framing! Clearly it's also your great eye and not just that impressive lens you're carrying. I'm impressed that a natural slow traveler can pick up the pace when necessary. Hope working in SF isn't too intense--there's great county around there for visits, adventure and photos--enjoy!

Thanks for the comments!
Alas, I did not dive Silfra. With only 7 nights and a loop to make there was no time on the schedule. Just one more reason to stop over again :)
