Top 10 US Travel Photos You Need to Take

Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas

Back in the day, you had to pick and choose your shots since you might have only one roll of film and 24 to 36 possible photos. You had to worry and wonder if you’d blinked, as you couldn’t tell before the film was developed (at a store, inevitably taking more than an hour). Then there was the awful time you accidentally opened the back of the camera and exposed the entire roll, rendering all of your vacation shots black. Those were dark times.

Now, taking that perfect vacation shot is much easier, and so it’s become more important to have those iconic shots in your photo gallery. You know the ones, the shots that prove you’ve traveled the length and breadth of our fair country, seeing the most important sights and sites.

Rescuing Elephant Orphans in Nairobi, Kenya

An older orphan comforts a younger one.

Kenya is without a doubt a wildlife paradise, its wilderness unparalleled and one of the few places on earth where one can admire the Big Five. But with these unique attributes come challenges, as poachers decimate herds for the ivory trade, killing mothers and leaving behind orphans. Several conservation groups are at the forefront of animal rescue and orphan rehabilitation.

The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Nairobi is considered one of the most successful programs in the world. In addition to rescuing and hand-rearing rhino and elephant orphans, it’s engaged in veterinary assistance, anti-poaching measures and habitat conservation. Other initiatives include community outreach, which involves improving the living conditions of the local communities and engaging them in protecting the wildlife and environment.

A Biodiverse Paradise: Outdoor Adventures in Honduras

Exploring the natural wonders of Honduras

Honduras is one of the many corners of the globe that suffers in tourism thanks in large part to international perception. Bullets! Crime! Gangs! Drugs! This all leaves the average traveler envisioning a country where foreigners (in this case, mainly gringos) are hunted mercilessly. Of course such logic fails when tested with reality.

Fact is, Honduras is a mecca of biodiversity with some of the world’s most pristine jungles and rainforests, plus a Caribbean coast that needs no photoshopping before it becomes a postcard. The country is at the heart of the Mesoamerican Biological Corridor between Mexico and Panama, with seven percent of the Earth’s biodiversity. This includes vital and sensitive ecosystems, such as rainforests, mangroves, pine forests, savannas and swamplands.
