GOING PLACES: Find thousands of travel opportunities at the Adventures in Travel Expo, coming to a city near you.

Sponsored by Adventure magazine, the four-city (see cities and dates listed below) Adventures in Travel Expo is the world's largest series of travel events serving active and adventure travel. At each expo, you'll discover thousands of trips, from exotic safaris to luxury beach escapes, all under one roof. As you walk the show floor, there are many hands-on adventure attractions. You could end up taking a dip in a scuba diving or kayaking pool, scaling a rock climbing wall, or soaring above the show on an aerial zip line. Each expo also features seminars by Adventure writers and photographers. Check out the Adventures in Travel Expo website to find out specific details about the expo in your area.

Enter the fourth annual Wild Angle Photo Contest for the chance to win a grand prize trip for two to one of the world's premier adventure destinations (stay tuned for details on this prize) and a PENTAX K10D digital camera. To enter, arrive at the expo with an 8"x10" print of a photo you have taken that best captures the spirit of adventure. A team of publishing and travel experts, including a National Geographic Adventure photographer, will judge entries based on subject matter, composition, photographic skill, originality, and creativity.
