Hello David

Here's how to add links to your page:

1. Drag and drop a text widget onto your page.
2. In the text widget type the words that you want people to click on (this is your link text).
3. Highlight the link text and then click on the link button (it's the 10th button from the left in the text editing tool bar, and looks like the link in a chain).
4. A link editor dialogue box will open up and you will be given 4 options. You can link to an email address, an external URL, a page on your own site or a file in your file manager.
5. Click on and edit the option appropriate for you.

You will then have a link on your page. To check that your link is working preview your page and then click on the link.

This is a brief explanation of how to add links, we have written a tutorial that shows the process in more detail. Here is the link: Creating Links.
For a step by step video on how to Add text links please see: Adding text links.

I took a peek at your website. I think you have a great concept for your website. I think with a bit of tweaking, you could have a really nice website.

It would seem that your text for some reason is overlapping each other? This needs to be sorted out so that your readers will have a much easier time reading the information you have. I've attached a screenshot to show you what I see when I navigated to your site. I've outlined the problematic area that I see.

The smugmug gallery is a nice touch to your website. Perhaps you could also add some more visual interest to your site such as some pictures that relate to the travel subject?

Please let me know if you have any further questions.
