This sounds crazy. I have an airticket to utilise by December, and have'nt quite decided where to go. But would like to sound out if there is anybody out there who's keen to go somewhere relatively far, and do a budget-style photography trip (prob around 10 days or so) together. Current destinations in my mind are Australia (any of the main cities), Capetown, Egypt (Cairo and surroundings), Greece, India (prob Delhi and surroundings). Pm me to discuss and exchange contact details, if you are keen to explore the idea and can leave in December (prob mid December or so). Thks.

Where does your air-ticket entitle you to go ... or is it a ID (idustry discount) ticket for airline staff .... ? You proposed destination seem to be very vast and very different in nature. If your are really interested, maybe look at some travel photography books for some insppiration of what you want to shoot then where do you want to do it ...

Would love to join you, but I have already made plans for travel in December ... Good Luck.

Why not decde what type of photography you are after?

Landscape, street, nature?

Maybe with that in mind, you choice will be narrow down.

If it is me, I will cross out those that I can get air tix relatively cheaper (less than 1k).

Ya, and check on the weather of that area.

ENVY!!! Hee hee

Hi . Capetown is a good choice. I went there Oct last year. Enjoyed the safari experience in johannesburg and the scenery in capetown.

Really nice... got to go simon town - boulder beach to see penguins, cape point, the water front area and of course table mountain.

Enjoy yourself.

I second that. The view from top of Fira town is unforgettable. :eek:

And the sunset at Oia.. the bright blue and white.. and the sunlight!!

I was there when everyone was still using film camera, I can simply shoot with an ISO 50 Fuji velvia handheld with confidence.. too much sunlight. It's a photographer's paradise :lovegrin:
