We had nearly 2,000 entries capturing memorable moments on the road, from eagle hunters in Mongolia to fireworks over Sydney Harbour. The top 100 are printed here. Very well done to our winners!

SOMETHING TO DECLARE:

Why reading a magazine is the best way to fuel your travel dreams

I’ve seen things people wouldn’t believe. Trees weeping dragon’s blood on the mysterious island of Socotra. Men fighting crocodiles to drag building sand from the bed of the Niger River. A tribe painted in the form of skeletons, waiting at a bus stop in Papua New Guinea.

Stephen Fry has given me a lift in a London black cab between the towering rock sculptures of Monument Valley. Dolly Parton has welcomed me to her Tennessee mountain home and Peter Jackson has guided me through the fantastical landscapes of Middle-earth.

PETER GRUNERT is the group editor of Lonely Planet’s magazines in the UK and USA. He recently managed a trip to Dollywood, but still longs to meet Dolly Parton in person.
