Instagram is a strange thing. We love it and hate it. In one hand it’s one of the best places for travel inspiration. On the other hand it’s one of the greatest cheaters in the world. Okay, it’s just our opinion. 😀 But since only insta worthy pictures are posted every destination looks like… uhm… almost not real sometimes (not to mention the automated comments that are truly not real).
But there are tons of great accounts to follow that shows the beauties of the world – whether it’s good weather or bad or happy or thoughtful moments. Here are our current favorites – in no particular order:
Dave & Deb @theplanetd
Travel photographs from Dave & Deb are among our favorites! They have an enormous collections of pictures from 100+ countries and 7 continents – nature just as cities or animals or special moments.
The beautiful Chain Bridge across the Danube River in Budapest. ———– If there is one memory you will have when you visit Budapest it is of the Chain Bridge at night. This bridge connects the two sides "buda" and "pest". One of the many reasons this is one of my favourite European cities. ——– #budapest #hungry

Matt Long @landlopers
Matt is a luxury travel blogger and we like his diverse pictures of beautiful destinations just as much as the stories and thoughts he shares.
The first port of call on my Windstar cruise around Tahiti yesterday was Moorea – an island that played a large role in fueling my own South Pacific wanderlust. This is the island many of us unwittingly think about when we think of Tahiti, whether we realize it or not. At the center of that is the mountain used as a stand in for Bali Hai in the movie "South Pacific." I was able to admire the mountain from all angles on a tour with a local photographer, but my favorite was as I wandered through this pineapple plantation. The sharp leaves of the plants bit at my ankles but I really didn't care; I was too lost in the moment. So many times when we dream of visiting a place it doesn't seem real when we finally make it there but, believe me, I'm all too aware of how real this is and I'm trying to make the most of every precious second exploring these amazing islands.

Lauren Bath @laurenepbath
Lauren is photographing the world with an Olympus and we’ve fallen in love with her autumn pictures lately. And her animal shots. And she lives in Australia (=all the beautiful Australian destinations you dream about).
How magical is this scene? I said my last post would be my last shot of Bergen but not my last shot of Norway. 😂😂 This is the outskirts of Bergen and I think I've posted a similar one but edited this from the RAW file and loved how it came out. The settings were ISO 64, f16, 1/4 seconds. @Olympus_Au #OlympusInspired 🍂🍁🍂🍁

Early morning calm on Moraine Lake. This spot is truly one of the most beautiful I have ever seen. 💙💧💙💧💙 💧💙💧💙💧💙💧 . . There is only one small parking lot up by Moraine Lake so access is limited. Get there early or stay at the @morainelakelodge . . I had an amazing time at the lodge canoeing and hiking. 🏔💙 Some of the best hiking spots in all of Banff start here. Bear spray and groups of 4 hikers are mandatory because you will be hiking through prime bear country ❤️🐻🌲🐻❤️ . . . . #wildernessculture #theoutbound #in2nature #adventurethatislife #getoutstayout #rei1440project #canoe #lakeside #mountainscape #nationalpark #greatoutdoors #lifeofadventure #wheretonext #doyoutravel #roamtheplanet #travelphotography #travelbug #banff #travelalberta #discoverearth #worldplaces #whereivebeenwandering #beautifulview #beautifulplace #ilovetravel #banffnationalpark #explorecanada #explorealberta #exploretheworld #hikingadventures
