TDBL Roundup – June 2013

With TBEX landing in Toronto, there has been no shortage of Canadian pride swelling in the hearts of my fellow bloggers.  Here’s why I am proud to be Canadian.  I also loved Hecktic Travels rendition of why they are proud to be Canadian.

TBEX links:

As with any conference, there is a whole of of networking going on!  I met so many fantastic writers and learned so many useful tips.  This one I could not keep to myself – if the Galapagos are on your bucket list, this is a must read: How I made my Galapagos trip affordable!

Focus on photography: 

Summer festivals, National Holidays and firework competitions – don’t forget to look up and savour the colour explosions!  The electricity is in the air and the thousands of people who come out to watch the fireworks only make it more exciting!  Do you capture the moment or sit back and watch it all unfold?  Check out these tips for photographing fireworks.

As a travel writer/photographer, I gain so much inspiration from the works of others.  There is so much talent out there – I wanted to share some the works of some of the people who I admire.  Here is a small list of some of the photography posts that really caught my eye in June:

My Destination Unknown – love her work.  Her skills as a travel photographer inspire me regularly!  The Tasmania photo essay she did just blew me away.  Enjoy!

Travel Photo Discovery – love the photo essays from around the world.  Particularly enjoyed the Morocco series…if you are into photography, as I am, and appreciate fine work, as I do, take a moment to delve through this site…you won’t be disappointed!

As June wraps up and summer quickly approaches, I leave you with one final image:

Happy Canada Day – July 1st!
