Author: Steve Smith

Steve Smith inherited the wanderlust and has always needed to see what’s around the next corner. In his college years he enjoyed many memorable (and cheap) forays into Mexico sleeping under the stars, but today that’s all changed. Since 2006 he’s contributed stories and photographs to the digital magazine In The Know Traveler, and in 2014 he assumed an associate editor role with the same. Published both in digital and print formats, his international assignments have taken him to the Middle East, Asia, North/Latin/South America, Europe, and the Caribbean. His Facebook page (Steve’s Roadtrippin’ Travels) spotlights both his photography and how his global road travels intersect with digital storytelling using dynamic space-age mapping technology.

  2. I vote for 07, Easter Island statues.

    I would like to recommend another icon of Chile – Patagonia, Chile. That place itself can be a seventh wonder 🙂 You may want to visit for some great travelling ideas.
