We got back to Barcelona today (total travel time from Portland, Oregon to Barcelona, Spain is about 26 hours; yuck).
First of all, thank you to all of you for your sympathy and support in regards to the death of Grandma Anderson. We sincerely appreciate your encouragement and love, and we passed your messages onto Gemma’s family.
In addition to hearing from many family and friends, we also received a number of messages from complete strangers. The internet being what it is, it’s not unusual to get a message from someone you don’t know; however, the quantity of messages we were receiving was abnormally high.
It turns out barkhuff.com was recently featured on a number of other websites (the internet equivalent of getting press coverage), and our site traffic jumped 6,000% in one day! The site traffic has come down from that initial spike, but the change is still significant. Our site has gone from an average of 30 visitors per day to 600 visitors per day. weird.
I’m just afraid that the world isn’t ready for the world’s best moonwalk.
All of those new visitors (maybe that means you) had a bunch of the same questions, so we’ve created a more extensive about us page.
Finally, we’ve added all of the photo galleries from our trip back to the US (see the US photo galleries).
