WEST PALM BEACH FL - Big Five Tours & Expeditions providers of custom luxury travel offer guests a way to share their experiences with friends and family from anywhere - a hot-air balloon sailing over an African Serengeti or from the snow fields of Antarctica's cold and airy climate. Big Five needed a Travel Blog to allow users the ability to chronicle their adventures through their mobile phone or portable device. THAT Agency a Web design and online marketing firm was contracted to handle the undertaking.

"Big Five required a blog solution that catered to the lifestyle that their jet-setting clientele were accustomed to. They needed a travel blog that was portable easily accessible and dynamic," said THAT Agency President, Bill Teubner.

From the user-end Big Five's Travel Blog is clean and concise; customers are able to log in update and continue along the entangled tributaries of the Amazon River or the isolated beaches of Bali. When a blog is updated that user's list of contacts is notified with a DHTML welcome e-mail that guides them to the updated page.

Every Big Five customer blog features a prominent Flash photo-gallery populated by photos of their adventure. THAT Agency used XML to update the galleries and Adobe's Action Script 3 to generate a showcase of images that are easy to share and visually crisp. Big Five's Travel Blog is also capable of posting traditional posts of text which are populated by AJAX for fluid browsing.

"We have been working with THAT Agency for four years. They have come through on every project and delivered exactly what our customer needs," said Ashish Sanghrajka, President of Big Five.

THAT Agency designed and developed the administrative end of Big Five's Blog as an aggregate allowing the administrator to simply edit review deny and approve posts as seen fit. Content is also reviewable by rearranged in ascending or descending order by data type or through a search feature with the capacity for five unique terms at once.
