Early hours of the web site
Photos-voyages.com , through which I publish my photos and more generally my travelogues was born in 1997, after my first trip abroad, in Malaysia.
My first intention was to create a means to share my photos with my relatives: they lived in Marseille, I was in Paris. It was in 1998, Facebook, Picasa or other social medias didn't exist at the time, hence the idea of a travel blog.
Problem was, I had no clue of how to create a web site from scratch. So I bought a book and started digging into. Much more rudimentary than its actual version, the web site was created and I was quite proud about it
To my big surprise I started to receive emails from people I never met, asking questions about my trip. That's when i understood that my pages had been crawled by Google bots. Photos-voyages.com then appeared in good places in the search results, hence the emails of people browsing its pages.
Year after year, more destinations were added while photos-voyages.com became more and more famous. That's when I decided to buy the domain name. In the meantime, I improved my knowledges in html, css and php which enabled me to improve the aspect of the web site, making it more modern.
Before displaying a new travel I make a drastic selection of the many photos I've taken. It takes time but it's important because there's no point in showing all the photos. Then I write the travelogue using all the notes I took during the trip.
Invitation to travel
The main objective of photos-voyages.com is to share my experience, my emotions while visiting this place or that area.
