We’ve been busy here at MudGuide over the last couple of months and we thought we would give you a quick rundown on what’s new on the website as well as our plans for the near future.
What we’ve been up to
It has been awhile since we freshened up our about page. About MudGuide now tells the story of how MudGuide was born and includes some great early pictures of us in Sicily. You can get to the About MudGuide from the menu at the top of the site.
MudGuide Products now includes a short description of all our products along with links to where they can be purchased. New to MudGuide Products are our photographs for sale, organized in different galleries. Photos are also for sale from all the site entries. Finally, if you’ve ever wanted to contribute money to MudGuide, now’s your chance. There is a new “Contribute” button at the bottom of the MudGuide Products page. You can get to the MudGuide Products from the list under the logo at the top of the site.
Follow Us is something that folks have been asking for; this is a way to be automatically notified when something is added to the MudGuide website. You asked for it and now it’s here. You can get to the Follow Us page from the menu at the top of the site.
Let’s say you’re in Rome and wondering about the restaurants in the area you’re staying. Now there is a way to get a list of the best and worse in MudGuide by going to What’s Around Me. We figure out where you are and provide a map with icons to MudGuide entries. You can get to What’s Around Me from the list under the logo at the top of the site.
What we’re doing next – Europe 2014
In mid-March of 2014, the MudGuide team returns to Europe. This year, we will be taking the Amtrak to Charleston SC via Washington DC to board a Seabourn ship to Barcelona. We’ll stay in Barcelona for a week with our dear friends in Barceloneta. Next, we transition to Sicily near Syracuse where we’ll stay once again with our very good friend Giovanni for about a month, taking advantage of all the local markets, hiking, and checking out new restaurants. In May we’ll head north again and meet up with friends to explore French World War I battlefields in honor of the 100th anniversary of the start of the Great War. To get back to the US this year in June, we decided to take a freighter. The one other time we transited the Atlantic on a freighter was quite the adventure and this looks to be an interesting repeat. Once back in the US, we’ll take Amtrak to Montana, returning to Big Sky country before the 4th of July.
So stay tuned and we’ll keep you posted as we get Europe 2014 underway in March.
