Author Bio

Dan Westergren took up photography after being taught how to develop film by an indulgent science teacher in the eighth grade. That early experience instilled in him a reverence for the classic, timeless feel of a wonderful photograph, a reverence that he continues to feel even with his job as director of photography for National Geographic Travel. In addition to photo editing for National Geographic Traveler magazine and Natgeo.com/travel he has photographed a variety of stories, including expeditions up Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa and Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn in the European Alps. Westergren also attended and photographed an expedition to ski the last degree to the North Pole. Over the years, he's shot some of the world's most intriguing people, places, and experiences.

Nice Pictures, too bad some facts are wrong.

By Frenchy

from Alberta

Comments about Destinations of a Lifetime:

At first glance I noticed that the author did not do much research. For example, he indicates that Banff National Park is in British Columbia. Banff National Park is actually in the province of Alberta.

    Comments about Destinations of a Lifetime:

    Istanbul is represented by Hagia Sophia. Unfortunately, 1 of the 2 photos that supposed to be the pictures of the HS, is a photo of the Blue Mosque. Very disappointing that NOBODY at NG bothered looking at what is going to be published. Still, Istanbul should be on everybody's bucket list !
