If you read my comments, you'll find that the writing style changes rather abruptly about halfway through. For the first trips, the texts mostly amount to "I was there...[PICTURE]...then I went to...[PICTURE]; the next stop was at...[PICTURE]...", while later reports are more detailed and contain more personal recollections of the journey.
The reason for this is basically historical. At first, I had a small web page with a short paragraph for the travels I had made and a picture belonging to that trip. (Like the travel overview page without the additonal links.)
In 1997 I started to put more pictures on the web site and it became impractical to put them all on the main page, so I kept the basic "one paragraph" format for the main page and added a link to another page with more images and a longer, more detailed text. (This started (roughly) with the snowmobile / Icehotel trip to Sweden.) Since those text are usually written fairly shortly after the trip, I still can recall what places 'felt' like and what went through my head when I was there, so the texts are more like a travel diary.
Going through the pages in early 2003, I noticed that I had some pictures of the early trips that I wanted to have on my web page. So I added some links to pages about those trips. But since most of the travels have been more than 15 years ago, I am no longer 'close' to those trips, so I've only written 'just the bare facts' texts to them.
Why do I mention that at all? Well, if you go to the page for some reason and start at the top and look at travel report after travel report, you'll start with a lot of boring texts and badly digitized images and may stop reading. So if you're just looking around, it's probably better to start looking at the later trips.
(Side note: The images look that bad because I used to have pictures printed with a matt finish because it was better for handing them around without worrying too much about fingerprints, but are difficult to digitize well.)
