  The Chatter Box : Messages from Michael
The arrival of the website by Michael Palin on 25 November 2002 1:04pm
Originally posted on 25 September 2002.

I'm very excited about palin's travels website. Not just because it's all about ME, but because today is the culmination of many plans and schemes to bring to the internet all I've seen and done and eaten and climbed and jumped off and flown in and run away from since I set out from the Reform Club with Passepartout fourteen years ago today - by coincidence the day that my ace photographer Basil Pao's' daughter was born. So this is a perfect day for a launch and I must say a huge thank you to Andrew, Peter and Steve at Oil who designed and built the site. Respect !
And to Anne and Paul and Alison at the Prominent TV office who have quite enough to do without all this, but have been terrifically enthusiastic and encouraging in fulfilling this ambition.
That's enough crawling from me, now it's up to you, the audience, as we say, to tell us what you REALLY think.
Talk soon - Michael P
