I’m currently traveling in Angola (and on to South Africa) so my posts may be short and sporadic till I return to New York in late February. Here’s a photo I took here in Luanda the other day as well as something I found worth blogging about: In celebration of its 100 millionth guidebook, Lonely Planet is running an online travel photo competition. Upload your favorite travel photos to their interactive mosaic of the earth and you’ll be entered to win some fabulous prizes, including a round-the-world trip and one of 200 Nokia phones.
This is what Lonely Planet says: “We’re looking for photos (with a story/caption) that epitomize the adventurous spirit of Lonely Planet. Originality, creativity and capturing a moment are more important than whether the photo is ‘professional’.” More info at www.lonelyplanet.com/win/. Definitely worth giving it a shot. Good luck!
