I have written a simple travel blog (as I couldn’t find anything that seemed to do exactly what I wanted!).
- Link a post to a Picasa album
- Link a post to a Google Maps location, or a route between a number of Google Maps location
- Post a story
- Allow for multiple trips
- Be maintainable online
- Look great!
Just for fun, I decided to write it in a PHP framework called Kohana (as php is the easiest language to get running on this web server), using mysql for storage and jQuery for the UI layer – everything is REST based, though not pure REST, as I am only get/post’ing
A demonstration version of the blog (database will be refreshed regularly):

It still needs quite a lot of work to make it more configurable, and to add security and a few other nice features. If anyone wants to help, please get in touch. I’m still in holiday mode after riding my motorbike around Spain for the past few months, and will be working on some of these personal projects while I consider what I move on and do next!
