the world wonders blog
It's only when you've seen the globe's most famous sights that you can truly say you've travelled the world. I'm lucky enough to have photographed some of the world's most iconic. From pavilions to pagodas, great walls to great pyramids, cathedrals to coral reefs and opera houses to orang-utans, The World Wonders Blog chronicles my ongoing quest to photograph the wonders of the world.
"But why think about that when all the golden lands ahead of you and all kinds of unforseen events wait lurking to surprise you and make you glad you're alive to see?"
Jack Kerouac, On the Road
travel tips, links & resources
- In the age of bucket lists and travel 'gramming, the world's most iconic sights are increasingly overrun with travellers, tourists and backpackers from all over the world wanting their fifteen minutes of fame with the icons in world travel. It is advisable that, wherever possible, you select the least busiest times of the day or week to see the Taj, the Pyramids at Giza or the Treasury at Petra.
- In countries where tourism has been affected by external forces, this, ironically could present an opportunity for those travellers wanting to experience a wonder of the world without, seemingly, half of humanity there to share it with you.
- Be prepared to feel a little let down when you visit some of the world's greatest landmarks; the reality is that in some instances I have found that the reality does not match up to the hype and expectation - fuelled by photographs which have been heavily filtered and shot from misleading angles.
