Hi all,
I have a number of updates to announce regarding the Photo Collage, Photojournals, and Russia Trip Journal Updates.

Photos Hub Page:

I've created a new photos hub page that links to all my photo content, including the Photojournals, Photo Collage, Dating Abroad Slide Shows and Approachable Faces Gallery. You will find it linked to the Photos tab above. Here is the new photos hub page:

Photo Collage:

I've split my Russia/Europe Photo Collage into two sections - one for Russia/Ukraine and the other for Eastern Europe. That way, people can see which pictures are from where, and distinguish them. It also creates a separate section as well, to expand it geographically a bit. I've also added more pics to my Philippines Photo Collage, and included pics of Dianne too. I figured that since she's receiving money from this site, that she ought to contribute something too. lol

You can see the updated collage here:

Photojournals:

AOL Pictures shut down in 2008, and with it, my Russia Photojournals, a major selling piece of this movement, was shut down as well, ruining many hours of work I put into it. (That's what you get for trusting and depending on AOL) Next time I ought to try to host my own content. But before it was shut down though, AOL migrated all the slides and captions in my Photojournals to Photoworks, another online photo service. I was able to access it there, but all the slides were out of order, and I had problems creating a link to share them. Since then, I haven't done anything about it since I didn't have time.

As of now though, Photoworks has been merged with another online photo service called Shutterfly. I had a look at my account on Shutterfly and sure enough, my Photojournal slides and captions are there, but out of order. Looking through its features, I do see a way to organize and share them, but it will take some time to do all that. So I will either use their platform to host my Photojournals, or find some other way to host them off my server.

For now though, I've put this announcement on the Photojournals page, and put links to my Russia trip photo albums on PicasaWeb that you can view in the meantime, until I get this mess sorted out. You can view those albums at the Photojournals link:

Russia Trip Journal Updates:

I've put up the real updates for my 2002 Trip to Russia, the ones I actually wrote while I was there, at this link:

http://www.happierabroad.com/RussiaJournals2002.doc

The other one I had was actually a storybook of that trip that I took more time to put together. That first trip was the most memorable one, because it was the one that inspired me to start this movement with unswerving fervor, dedication and passion. It was actually the most memorable and interesting 6 weeks of my life. So I created a storybook about that trip. For now, I've converted that storybook into a PDF file, which you can download here:

http://www.happierabroad.com/RussiaStory2002.pdf

In the future, I may add photos and images to the storybook, since it'd look better with visual content of course, when I have time. But for now, it is just a storybook with text chapters only.

In fact, I've changed the download links to all three Journal Update files of my Russia Trips. Here are the new URL's to them:

http://www.happierabroad.com/RussiaJournals2002.doc
http://www.happierabroad.com/RussiaJournals2003.doc
http://www.happierabroad.com/RussiaJournals2004.doc

Sorry if that's a bit confusing. I hope I've explained it clearly. These download links to the trip updates are also available at the Photojournals link above and also at the Blogs and Journals index page at:

http://www.happierabroad.com/Blogs.htm

Thanks for your attention. Hope you enjoy the updated content.

Regards,
Winston

Hi all,
I've figured out how to use Shutterfly and am now using it to host my Russia Dating Adventure Photojournals. Check out my share site here:

http://russiadatingadventures.shutterfly.com

So far, I've uploaded the albums of the first two trips. I'll add more later.

Check out my mini-Collage on there too. lol

Hope you all like it.

Thanks,
Winston

I've added the rest of my photo albums from Russia/Eastern Europe to my Photojournals sharing site. All nine albums are now posted, although the slides are out of order. Here is the link to them.
