My jobs and my love of photography have taken me all over the world. The Web isn't exactly the best way to travel, but if you're keyboard bound, here are a few places for you to explore.

The Travel area is now divided into two sections:

General

Photographic

INTO SANTIAGO Latin cab drivers have a reputation. A valid one, as I found out.

CORDILLERA BLANCA On any given day in Southern Peru, over 600 people hike the 40-mile Inca Trail. Hundreds more take day hikes from the Machu Picchu terminus of the trail. Yet in Northern Peru, only a few hundred attempt the Cordillera Blanca trek in a year. You want ruins, go to Machu Picchu via the Inca Trail. You want Andean Peru without the tourists, try Cordillera Blanca or Cordillera Huawash. I did, and it was one of the best walks I've ever made. Hanging icefields, classic climbing peaks, rural Peru at its most innocent, and as much as a 100 miles of walking at over 12,000 feet await you.

BETWEEN BUSES Your first time in Denali National Park will be memorable. Mine was.

GALAPAGOS The Galapagos Islands are a photographer's dream. Plentiful animals that are approachable in settings that are memorable.

ALASKA If you've never been to the Great North, you're missing the best variety of photographic scenery America offers.

AFRICA This continent is in your blood. Explore the land your ancestors once lived on.
