If you choose the Rest of World map, you must enter the 'town/city', 'county/state' and 'country' of your 'My Place'. Then give it a title and write your entry into the big box.

If you have one or two photographs then click on the browse button and select the photograph that you want to add. You can also add a comment for each photograph.

If you want to add more to your My Place before sending it, then click 'save' and come back to it later to add some more or change it.
