lostorwhat.com old content

There is a mix of everything here, everything that does not fit on the main page which is mainly international travel.
The content here is not as well maintained, and wont be updated, but I dont like to delete anything ever.
Also be aware, most of this wont auto scale to work on mobile devices.

Local Travel

Travels in and around wherever I happen to be living at the time, slightly newer than the content just below here in the Regional Travel section.
This section probably works ok on mobile devices, thats why its near the top of this page.
