This is our home on the internet. For the most part, it documents our various travels over the years. There are some other bits and bobs as well. There are many, many photographs, both travel (mostly) and some that are not travel related. While we have scanned and/or digitised some of our print pictures from the last century, most found here were shot with a digital camera of some sort.

We have had a number of digital cameras over the years starting with a Fujifilm FinePix 1400 Zoom in 2000. This was followed by an Olympus C3040 Zoom (for five years), a Canon PowerShot S3 (not our favourite), a Nikon D40 (two years), and finally a Nikon D90. With the continuing increased quality of cameras on our mobiles, we gave the D90 to our son in 2015. We had barely touched it in the previous three years!

In early 2010 we got our first mobile devices, the excellent Nexus One (and we have had at least one of every Nexus produced since then). That fall, when we visited Germany, we started using Twitter for the first time to document our travels. The KnowmarkTravel Twitter account was created using a Nexus One while we were on the train to Lübeck!
