Blog posted by on Jan 17th, 2010

Although our plan to photograph every place we sleep has predictably fallen by the wayside, we have taken quite a few photos of the places we’ve slept along the way so far. Here’s a selection (for larger images, visit the “homes for the night” gallery):

Right, I’m off to find more ways to procrastinate over writing the long overdue update about our last two months on the road (too much to write!).
