In 2008 I was lucky enough to get the chance to travel Australia as part of a career break. Before I went I wanted a way to let people back home how I was getting on and allow them to leave comments.
I could of used Facebook but at the time I was keen to try and get my head around PHP so I tried building my own CMS from scratch. The site had a simple back end which allowed me to upload journals and photos while also establish relationships between the two. It was then possible for users to create an account, log in, and then leave comments. The site wasn’t without faults but I still look at it from time to time to remind myself of the awesome time I had out there.
