I use www.getjealous.com which is worth taking a look at - it's easy to add diary entries and photo's and you can plot your route on your map in advance if you want to. You can also link it to Facebook so your diary entries appear as an update thus killing two birds with one stone!

you can use blogger or set up a wordpress acocunt..or if you want more than just a blog you can use multiply.com. I used these 3 services for my personal accounts and I enjoy customizing them into whatever mood I am at.

I used www.travelpod.com.

I found it very easy to use, and they have a photo upload facility and a mapping utility so that your readers can see where you are.

If you plan on uploading photos, Travelpod works best if you carry your own netbook/laptop. This is because to upload a bunch of photos in a batch, you need to install a small Jave app which speeds up the process. If you try to load photos at an internet cafe and they don't have the app already loaded (unlikely), then you have to manually select each photo to upload, one at a time. It's OK if you're only loading a few pics, but a pain if you're loading more than 5.

Other than that, I found it a great place to blog.

I often wrote offline, selected and resized my photos so that everything was ready to go when I next connected. I cut and pasted my blog entry, then loaded the photos.

Ignore that last unfinished sentence above!

The other thing I meant to say, however, is that whichever blog tool you use, have a good play with it first before you leave home. You don't want to be trying to work out how to drive it when you are paying for internet time!
