New York’s best pain au chocolat, a Gambian river adventure and Mali jazz – travel industry insiders reveal their favourite things on the planet

Words Hannah Thompson

Ever wonder how some people seem to travel without a fuss, know exactly where’s hot before the rest of the world’s heard of it and collect the kind of rarefied memories the rest of us only dream of? Wings has found the intrepid blogger, hotelier, photographer and tour operator who have made travel their trade and the little-known corners of the globe their office – We’ve asked them for their expert advice on how and where to travel.

Interview with River Gambia Expedition co-leader and photographer, Jason Florio:

Q: Where will the next stamp in your passport be from?

JF: ‘The Gambia. My wife and I are going to make a 1,130km photography expedition following the course of the River Gambia from its source in the Fouta Djallon highlands of Guinea, through the Niokolo Koba National Park in Senegal and back through The Gambia to the Atlantic. rivergambiaexpedition2012.wordpress.com’
