Continue reading why but first here’s a bit of history: 2004 – 2011: we12travel version 1.0 Back in 2004 we started we12travel as a photo gallery to make our pictures available for viewing to our friends.

We kept on traveling and making (sometimes really poor) pictures. 2011 – 2012: we12travel 1.1 Now let’s move forward about 7 years to early 2011 when we started blogging. We had a 6 week adventure…
