After lots of research, I’ve found a look for the scenic routes pages that I like. So here is the rather plainly named ‘standard’ theme. What I really like about it is that it’s clean, crisp and simple and scales smoothly across all formats. Bit sad I know, but there you go.

Still haven’t found a better description than ‘blog’, so maybe that will just have to do for now.

new website

March 21, 2013

Today, the new website of The Scenic Route went live online at The new look had been up for a while, but was missing some of the more elegant navigation functions, which are now all there and working. Nothing fancy, but it’s nice to have it look decent again.

Now it’s time to concentrate on getting these pages up to date. And decide on a theme for this section of the site.

I can’t bring myself to calling it a blog. Never really liked the word. A newsletter maybe? Or a magazine? We’ll have to work on that.

what is this?

scenic thoughts, observations and journeys for the purpose of sharing a passion and (let’s be honest) shameless self promotion

I am not entirely sure what this is going to become, but we’ll see as we go along. I’ll start with stories from years gone by, recent routes travelled, ideas and new thoughts around work, life and home renovation.

The stuff that keeps me occupied most of the time. I sometimes even call it work.

Hopefully, Scenic Routes will be a growing collections of journey snippets. A scrapbook of my attempts to make sense of life, I guess.

the plunge

You have to start somewhere. And to do that, there has to be a first time. So I guess this is it.


Plunge taken.


Swimming is the only option.
