Camera Gear For Adventure Photography Probably the coolest aspect of my job, aside from traveling the world, is the opportunity to document my trips with photos and video. Luckily for me, I’m really into photography. When I was in college, I got started taking photos of skiing and snowboarding. Then I began packing my DSLR on all of my trips and I’m absolutely sure that submitting photos from my adventures helped me land my current job. Now photography and videography are a large part of what I do and magazines like AFAR have featured my work. This year I've been on two work trips and I've decided to share a bit about my gear for the budding photographers out there. My first trip was 3 weeks of adventures in Southeast Asia and the most recent trip was a 3 week trip to Chile to attend the Adventure Travel World Summit. The following photo won the adventure photo...

Climbing a Rock Fortress in Sri Lanka If you’ve been up Huayna Picchu and loved it you may want to start considering a trip to Sri Lanka as your next destination for its fantastic rock fortress – Sigirya. A UNESCO heritage site, this commanding palace was built in the 5th century. 1,200 stairs take you to the top with the final push to the summit guarded by the paws of a giant lion. The top offers sweeping views of the surrounding countryside, ruins to explore, and a birds eye view of the oldest gardens in Asia. After your early morning hike, you can enjoy some Sri Lankan delicacies prepared by a local family that will allow you to sit and imagine what life was like when this palace in the sky was at the height of its glory. Your friendly Asia expert, Kelsey  Got questions about travel to Sri Lanka? Ask me! PS: You might also like...

A Very Unique Wildlife Experience Two of our alumni travelers just returned from a customized Manu Wildlife Safari adventure in Peru and share their thoughts on several aspects of the trip below: "FAVORITE EXPERIENCES: The one day KM 104 hike up to Machu Picchu via the Sun Gate was the perfect way to enter the site for the first time. Hardly any one else on the trail, plenty of interesting info from our guide as we hiked. Great experience as one finally gets to the top and suddenly looks down on Machu Picchu. The macaw clay lick was also exceptional...a very unique wildlife experience. ON GUIDES: Both our guides William in Manu and Reuben in the Sacred Valley were excellent...Reuben in particular. I really enjoyed the fact that they shared information about their own lives and experiences with us. Both shared their experiences with the Shining Path, for instance. Lots of jokes and laughter ON...

The Best Trip So Far! "We have used Wildland for two of our previous trips- each being a very pleasant experience, but this custom Peru trip was the best so far! Every place on this trip has been amazing. Really. With wonderful guides who really care about our having a great time definitely made a difference. At the Cruz del Condor, we weren't having much luck with condor sightings and although we told our guide Betty that it was not a big deal, she was determined to get us at least one sighting. When we did end up seeing the condors- which was indeed spectacular- it was an even greater experience because our guide was so happy that we got a chance to see it. Her enthusiasm was very influential to our experience. Our 2 main guides (Betty and Carlos) were superb! They were very passionate about their country and were very intuitive when it...
Martian Landscapes and Scenic Beauty: Blown Away by Atacama Arriving in the Atacama Desert this October, I was speechless as the plane began to descend into Calama, the region's capitol. The austere and Martian desert stretched out in every direction and was accented with epic snowcapped volcanoes in shades of fiery orange and rusty red; the salt flats beckoned to the east while smaller, salt mountains signaled the mouth of the Moon Valley to the south. Met at the airport, by my Explora Atacama hosts, I was given my introduction to this remote region of Chile. “The first European explorers to reach what is now known as the Atacama Desert were drawn by tales of a land rich in gold located somewhere south of the Inca Empire. It was due to this quest that the Spanish conquistador, Diego de Almagro, after a perilous journey across the Andes Mountains, became the first European adventurer to arrive in Chile and set foot...
