"What are the costs and considerations to cruise and visit penguin colonies in Antarctica?"
In this three and half hour seminar, the A B C’s of Travel Photography are discussed - from planning your trip, researching the country and its local customs; to volunteer travel and even unique lodgings, such as foreign home-stays, home exchanges, AirBnB, and even youth hostels!
Learn how to save hundreds of $$$ in airfares flying to the same destination... on the same day! For "cruisers"- learn how to save BIG money on your next voyage!
From my own experience over 40 years travelling to more than 50 countries on all seven continents, including 7 expeditions to Antarctica, I will share with you my tips and techniques to make your next foreign adventure more vital, healthy, fulfilling, stimulating and secure. A demonstration of various new products, will protect your camera equipment, valuables and luggage making them slash proof and theft resistant.
I will show you how you may volunteer on stimulating and engrossing scientific expeditions in unique places, closed off to the public, with no experience necessary!
And you will learn what mishaps to avoid, from some of my own misadventures, from bad visas, missed flights, to dealing with the Russian consulate in Mongolia! Learn your travel rights should you get bumped from an overbooked flight.
To round out the evening, a digital slide show of memorable travel images from around the globe will be presented - from Chile, France, Holland, Iceland, the Czech Republic, Morocco, Argentina, Antarctica and many places in between, with details on how and where they were taken.
So come with your questions... and be prepared to have some fun!
After all, before you take the photos... you have to get there first!
