The Longest Way Home
The Longest Way Home is actually a web site that chronicle’s Dave’s journey around the world. It has a companion blog, which is what I am reviewing. When I read the submission e-mail for The Longest Way Home, I was touched by the description: “A travel blog about a guy searching the world for a place called home.” I once heard someone say that we all are searching for a place to call home. Dave is on that journey and he shares this quest with the rest of us.
Visual Aesthetics – 9
The design of the blog is very pleasing to the eyes. I am a fan of dark themes and The Longest Way Home definitely falls under that category. Graphics-wise, The Longest Way Home has a lot to offer, as Dave includes a lot of his pictures from his travels. One comment – the formatting of the pictures in relation to the text could be better.
User Friendliness – 8
The blog is hosted at a different site – Travellerspoint. As such, if you want to leave comments and see more of the blog, you have to click on the links from the main site and you are then taken to another page. This is a bit of a hassle as you can imagine. Once you get to Travellerspoint, though, you are good to go.
