I have always liked panoramic pictures, but until now I have found them very frustrating. I have dabbled with iPix, have tried to use various camera software and even tried to understand some of the stuff made available online.

My newest, and at the moment favouritest toys are Autostitch, and to get the images easily only this blog, IImage Panorama WP PTViewer. I would highly recommend both.

After a couple of practices I think I am now ready to post a couple of test panoramas…

Kiva 80×15 buttons / badges

So I decided that I am going to try my best to highlight Kiva. After putting a banner on my blog and a footer to my emails I felt something was missing – buttons!
I could not find any, so made a few (then a few more). I hope everyone likes them.
Please feel free to use them (but don’t link to them, download the one(s) you want and save them to your site)…

If you want to make your own I would recomend checking out Brilliant Button Maker by

Coast to Coast – booked

So the trip is booked to do the Coast to Coast walk in May!
Following A. Wainwright’s route from St. Bees in Cumbria to Robin Hood Bay in North Yorkshire – it is 190 miles. I booked support through Coast to Coast Packhorse, and having now completed the walk and updating this post can highly recommend them.

Not only did they book all the accomodation (at fairly short notice), they ferried me to the start (St Bees) and from the finish (Robin Hood’s Bay) back to Kirkby Stephen where my car was safely and securely parked. It was a great mix of accomodation, and my bag was at each stop to be found when I arrived at the end of the day. This really freed me up to enjoy the walk, and booking it this way meant no hassle and only one phonecall – rather than 20+ that might have been needed if I was having to phone up every B&B.

If you are thinking of doing the walk I suggest you check Coast to Coast Packhorse out – and have a read through some of my experiences below…
