My Travel Plans for the Rest of 2012
The last week has been very busy for me. Flew to Denver and met with the folks at G Adventures where we did a photo shoot and had meetings. I then went to Keystone to attend this year’s TBEX conference, which was a great experience.
I’m also close to completion of the over 10,000 photos I had to edit after my photography tour. The only sets I have left are from San Francisco and Yosemite National Park.
The first half of 2012 has been very busy for me in terms of travel. Just to recap where I’ve been this year:
Photo Essay : Lord Howe Island
Lord Howe Island might just be the most beautiful place on Earth. If not, it is certainly in the running. Home of the world’s southernmost coral reef it is located almost 500 miles off the eastern coast of Australia, Lord Howe is a little visited part of New South Wales. To give you an idea of how special the island is, only 400 visitors are allowed on the island at any one time and there is no mobile phone service anywhere on the island. The islanders have chosen to keep it turned off. It is a place where people introduce themselves as a 3rd or 4th generation islander and everyone knows everyone else.
Getting to Lord Howe is not easy. The only transportation is small propeller plane and the tickets are rather expensive. Nonetheless, it should be on your list of places to visit if you are ever in Australia. Of the few travelers I know who have visited, all have listed Lord Howe as one of their favorite places.
