In TRAVELIFE Magazine's December 2011-January 2012 issue, businessman Dondi Joseph captures the elusive aspects of the area around Mount Bromo, one of Indonesia's most famous and most beautiful volcanoes. Dondi joined a group of professional photographers and very keen hobbyists on a photo safari, and they got caught up in a sandstorm -- which just made things more exciting. Never a dull moment with Travelife.
Read about it in Travelife Magazine. The travel magazine by real travelers with great stories. And that's just one of the reasons why we're #1.
DONDI JOSEPH not in the middle of nowhere
and far from alone with his camera.
WHERE ARE YOU HEADED IN 2012?
To Myanmar. I’ve been postponing for years and I’ll postpone no longer! It also looks like France is on the travel menu. There comes a time in a man's life when he needs to wine and dine – and visit his mother-in-law.
SNOW-BOUND CHALET OR VILLA BY THE BEACH?
Tough question. I scuba dive, so beach trips are welcome and easy getaways especially in the Philippines. But deep down I love both cool forests and humid tropical jungles, and vast landscapes. Snow? Not a requirement for a trip but anything cooler than tropical is always welcome and refreshing.
HOW DO YOU GET THROUGH LONG-HAUL FLIGHTS?
I almost always travel economy so I stay calm with zen-like acceptance of the usual discomforts that are all just part of the travel "game". I enjoy airports so I look forward to transit breaks, and always make it a point to take a shower in one of the lounges so I get on the next flight feeling refreshed. Plus there is my e-reader with over 1,000 books to choose from and reading it always relaxing and sleep inducing.
YOUR BEST DISCOVERY IN 2011?
Traveling with pure photographers on photo safaris. If the chemistry is right, you share both camaraderie and creative passion, and discomfort and a lot of laughter. And I also discovered Scottish writer Iain Banks. This guy is twisted and so are the characters in his books.
