Kia ora!

My name is David Beer. I'm a kiwi (New Zealander to foreign folk) who is on a bit of a tiki-tour/walkabout at the moment. I left New Zealand around the middle of 1999 and decided to head off exploring for six months. Haven't finished yet.

What's New

Finally caught up on the last few years of travels. I'd written them ages ago, but was hoping on updating the site design significantly. Unfortunately my uber-design-skills failed to materialise, so I managed to procrastinate until it really got beyond a joke.

Was also playing around with Wordpress a bit, but honestly it's more hassle than it's worth for this site. I'm happy enough hand cranking out some HTML.

So design be damned. This'll do!
