Speaker Temu Nana “The Year Before: Twelve Months, Seven Continents": An Extraordinary Year of Luck, Work, and Opportunity...and Then The World Shut Down” (7:00 PM EST)
In the travel industry, colleagues often compare and compete: number of countries visited, most exotic locations, most remote, craziest stories, etc. It's not unusual to find people that have visited all seven continents—particularly for those that work in expedition travel—but it's exceedingly rare to do it in a calendar year. Without planning it and without fully realizing it was happening until I was on my way to Antarctica, everything fell into place for me in 2019 to achieve this fortunate—and incredibly humbling—milestone. Little did I know that less than three months after I returned from Antarctica the world would change and our industry would collapse, spurring a move across country, a discovery of a new photographic passion, the longest period without travel I ever hope to experience, and the greatest personal and photographic growth in my life. Join me as I relive this incredible year (and a bit more) in images, stories, and, hopefully, a few laughs.
