After undertaking comprehensive market research and reader feedback we have made a couple of changes.
A) The photo format will revert back to a carousel style layout (you should be able to click and enlarge to view slide show), rather than mosaic style (it took up too much space).
B) Comments per post has now been turned on so your opinion is appreciated. Outside of the market research group (of 1) + family, we have no idea I who is taking any interest in our travels.
Please let us know if you have any other suggestions for improvement.
