Don't get insta wrecked...

in steempress •  6 months ago  (edited)

I'm not really totally against posting "instagrammable" pictures. It's nice when your travel pictures look nice, for yourself and for your friends to see. It can be useful sometimes too. Before I travel somewhere, I sometimes browse the place in inatagram map search, and try to find some nice spots to go. If I really like the picture, I might even ask the OP where exactly is it taken.

Recently few years I become less obsessive about getting the instagrammable photos, but still I browse the location on instagram to find interesting spots everywhere I go and decide for myself which ones are worth going. The more I travel, the more I can tell from a picture whether it's insta wrecked, nowadays I won't pay some overpriced coffee just in order to pose for photos inside that beautiful cafe, for example.

I no longer believe in "50 most instagrammable places in the world", or "100 most beautiful places you must visit before you die" kind of inspirational travel blogs. As a travel enthusiast, I enjoy those travel sites that are practical, grounded in reality, such as this site much more. Oh and I still check atlas obscura for some hidden gems, although I believe the more popular the site becomes, the less those remain hidden gems. But still quite a few hidden gems when I last checked the site a few weeks ago.

I actually only want to share some interesting travel sites to you in this post. Hope you like them.

IG the new travel agent that does nothing but lead you to destination wrecked 😂

My favourite genre is travel couples though, those young pretty geniuses are killing it.. Influencers of romance and Disney dreams.. Mad props if I were 15 years younger I'd be all over it too..

But I want that picture at that exact spot tho 😄

It would be funny to do off season versions of all the must see places, gloomy rain soaked pictures or all white out ice and snow, no sunshine, no smiles, just the right place at the wrong time..

lol good idea. Now you’ll have to travel the world to get that done. I went to Santorini off season years ago, it turned out great, sunny without people, warm but not warm enough to swim in that infinity sunset pool.

Ya, I've actually lucked out going places for off season as well.. Rainy season just began here this week and I love it! No haze it's not sweltering hot n steamy and it rains a bit everyday.. Fine with me!

Hey Joy, totally agree, particular for those top 50/100 places that you have to visit in your life is getting less and less interesting

哈哈哈 谢谢留言
是的 每次旅游做计划都觉得 啊 这些必去景点看上去真没意思!

So true! I know I've been guilty of literally spending hours trying to get an Insta-worthy snap - and for what? I'd rather live in the moment and enjoy life on my own terms than be bound by the 'reality' Instagram wants me to live...

Thanks, we were all once there haha
