Those who travel the world typically are people who want to indulge in experiences as opposed to just enjoy a relaxing vacation. And many of those experiences are ones that you will want to document. Using Instagram as an adjective for photo-worthy posts has become terribly popular, and doing so with regard to travel is no exception. While you should not plan an entire trip around the ‘gram, here are some highly recognizable locations to consider if epic photos are an important piece of your overall travel puzzle.
The Greek Islands
The familiar white and blue architectural landscape of Santorini is an undeniable reason it is one of the best Greek Islands to visit and experience. But there is so much more to discover in this part of the world. This region is made up of several islands in the Ionian Sea that you can bounce around by private boat or ferry and discover the unique personalities of each one. Different types of food, traditions, and vibes will leave you with tons of opportunities to snap photos and post to your story.
This quaint area of Europe is home to some of the most beautiful tulip gardens you could ever imagine. Between the end of March and the middle of May, you can travel here and have your breath taken away by the perfectly manicured and lush gardens. If you want to really optimize for social media Instagram-worthy photo opportunities, think about planning to attend the annual tulip festival in Amsterdam and take advantage of all the events that come around only once a year.
Anyone who has had social media for even one day has probably seen posts or ads for overwater bungalows in tropical locations, and it is more likely than not that the place you have been looking at is in Fiji. A notoriously lavish and expensive trip qualifies for ‘bucket list travel,’ and if you manage to make it happen for yourself, you are considered very fortunate. For a once in a lifetime trip, think about treating yourself and using the money you have saved to indulge.
This does not have to mean pulling from your savings. If you own a home and have for a period of time, look to your established equity to help cover the costs. You can take money out of your house to fund your travel and experience a piece of Insta paradise in the process. If you are unsure how to go about this or exactly what this all means, you can first review a guide on everything you need to know about taking out a home equity line of credit.
The unmistakable sights of the colored homes built into the side of a mountain that Positano is known for will show you a charm and character that is unrivaled. If you visit this region of Italy, be sure that you include some type of water activity on your agenda. The best way to get the full experience is to view the city from the water. The coastline at sunset looks like a painting. When you are on dry land, there is no shortage of Instagram photo-worthy meals to be had in Positano as well; it is Italy, after all! You can expect regional seafood, pasta, and wine to take over many of the menus in and around town.
