The USA's Yosemite National Park, where scenic sights overwhelm the senses

Haveseen/Dreamstime.com When I encountered my first giant sequoia in Mariposa Grove, my head did not tilt back far enough to see the top. Walking around the trunk practically required a GPS. Leaving noise and civilization behind to walk among these ancient trees brought us to the famous "Grizzly Giant," the grove’s elder statesman, which rivals the Statue of Liberty in height and sports a branch extending outward that is larger than the trunks of most trees.   read post

A blissful moment with humpback whales in Bora Bora

An Encounter with a Humpback Whale and her Calf The most amazing moment a photographer can dream of! Work being slower than in prior years - fewer weddings, couple's shooting, and visitors in general - has allowed us to work on our underwater photography. We will be launching a evening aquatic shoot in September which will be available at several resorts here in Bora Bora. ⁠ ⁠ With a strong interest in underwater photography, we were thrilled to have had three of our photos make it to the…

  • A couple of months ago, The Guardian ran a thought-provoking piece called "Can the Tourism Industry Survive the Climate Crisis?" It began: "One of the terrible ironies of the climate crisis is that some of the most beautiful – and popular – places in the world are also the most vulnerable. Which means as temperatures rise, extreme weather events increase, water sources dry up and natural habitats die, these places are facing another devastating loss: tourists." And proceeded to cite several case studies - mostly ecotourism stalwarts - that paint a fairly grim picture. A sobering read: https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2021/dec/02/tourism-industr...

  • Fear of ‘C’ (China/Covid/Corona) virus. Ask, do I want to be in a crowded airport, take a flight wearing a mask, be in another crowded airport, perhaps in a country with lesser health controls, stay at an all-inclusive resort, line up at food buffets, join a tour bus with another 30+people, board a gigantic cruise ship with 1000’s of other travellers, land at ports for more crowded tours, get on a train, stay in ginormous hotels or visit countries that do not have acceptable health, safety and security systems in place?

    The fear of ‘C’ is now present with many of us. I believe there will be a tremendous rejection of inbound Chinese tours which use the bus, train, boat, plane to visit our villages, towns, cities, cultural sites, parks and wilderness areas in large groups (often wearing face-masks). And, do we want to travel to China? 

    Finally, will insurance companies be 'fearful' of offering suitable and affordable coverage for 'all' age groups?

    We are still open to SME travel biz to list/link FOC direct booking offers by destinations and activities. TTTC is an excellent resource for travellers to plan for when the fear of ‘C’ has dissipated. This is a mktg and promo opp. to consider for post ‘C’ sales.
