    Would love to see your pictures but they seemed to have disappeared. Any link to a photo album?

    Yempaul, just read your post. Very amazing but unfortunately could not see the pics. I hope you can assist me with the agent you hired. Tq

    I am guessing Yempaul used Facebook to post the pictures and copy the URL across.

    Very annoyingly FB changed all the URLs to pictures.. so nothing more than 3 to 6 months works anymore :-(

    Needless to say. I will not be using FB any more to share photo's on trip reports..

    Cheers
    Brian

    I now use Photobucket.. So much better than FB for pictures.. also you have the link there.. click on it and paste in the report.

    No need to type etc etc.. certainly makes trip reports less painful..

    Cheers

    On my PC it is fine.. But it screws up a bit on my Mac with Flash installed...

    Believe David said you can upload directly to the site.. But not sure if that will speed things up.. As usually FB / Photobucket etc will compress the pic before uploading..

    Cheers

    Afraid not Colin.. Have not really looked in to it. Believe the next best way is to share the album.. But that distracts from the trip report.

    Most people including myself rarely click through to other links.. eg.. Blogs, albums etc etc.. Just like to have all the info presented in front of us and scroll up and down..

    Looks like we have managed to get off topic here.. Sorry Yempaul..

    Hi YemPaul, my name is Craig. A mate and myself would love to travel to Yunnan mid next year having trouble finding out anything re people to hire or help with our trip. We normally ride on our own but in China realize we would need a guide and bike hire. Some of the places we have spoken with want $80US per day for bikes same for guide. Sounds like you found someone special who helped you. Can you please let me know some contact information.
