Hey everyone,

Thank you everyone for the kind words and encouragement. I will keep your tips in mind, continue to map and start to learn how to use JOSM.

Cheers,
Martin

The ones you want to look at were made in December and January. Unfortunately most of them didn't have sound back then. Still trying to build up confidence to talk in English (and agility to concentrate on simultaneously talk and map...)
