Hey, I'm loving the idea of putting in the hotel/hostel where we stay in our blogs, but would it be possible to do a daytrip option as well? For those locations that arent quite so far away from home, and particularly in Japan, easy to commute via train etc?

Thanks, I hope this gets considered!

You don't have to enter a hotel into the Where I Stayed entry box. If you are doing a day trip, just don't fill it in!

Yeah thats true, but on the the travel map it kinda takes each travel entry as if it's going from the last travelled location and it seems a bit tacky constantly putting another map pin to go back home, if that makes sense?

Just an idea anyway.

Ohhhhh, so what I think you need to do is make a new travel blog, not just a new entry. Just make the location wherever your daytrip was and don't even mention your home location, that way there won't be any red lines, just a map pin in your day trip location.

Make sense? Am I getting you?

not quite. Last year I spent a year in Japan so I wasnt ... "home" as such, but I had a hometown over there. So I'd have to make like maybe 20 new travel blogs?

*shrugs* Whatever though, Just maybe a suggestion for the future is all

Yeah, that's what my profile and a lot of other people's profiles look like.

If we were to create a "day trip" option what would it look like?

I'd assume something more kinda, "starburst" as such. so i'd do a line to where you went, and then back to where you've designated as "home" away from home.

For example when I lived in Japan I called 'Nagoya' home, but went on probably more then 20 day trips, and a few trips that went longer, but at the end of the day it all ended back at Nagoya. it'd just be a kinda more realistic view of where I'd been. So I could have a line going to and from Inuyama, back to Nagoya, but another line that goes from nagoya to kobe, kyoto, nara, hiroshima before finally returning to Nagoya.

or maybe not even a day trip/home feature but having the option of maybe inputting where you came from, and went, and then whether you returned to that original point or not.

Wow, thats kinda confusing, even to me o.O heh. Let me know if I confused you yeah? biggrin.gif

Well, it kind of already does that...just make sure you do a post for your home base in between each trip out.

Or else, you can make a new blog for each one like I said before.

Fair enough. I did one last night because I did something in Nagoya after a trip somewhere else and it works well enough I guess smile.gif
