I’ve spent many hours at this point figuring out how to create, maintain and update a website. I just finished the Itinerary page, and it looks good enough that I’m ready to “officially” start the blog.

The theme and style that you see here is probably the one that will stay. I’ll start updating somewhat regularly to document the planning process. At this point I’ve purchased flights up through landing in Istanbul (despite not having my visa for Egypt or Turkey).
