Some like Instagram for the women. Others like it for the style inspiration. Armchair nomads love the ‘gram for the ability to travel the globe without leaving their favourite piece of furniture. Because your sofa is way more comfortable than coach (and the food’s better, too).
This week our digital journey around the world begins in the Bahamas, where a clan of colourful sea stars make for a prime photo op. Over in America, we take a drive over Big Sur’s iconic Bixby Bridge and get a smooch from a very unexpected source in Mendocino.
High-flying shots are gaining popularity with Instagram’s braver photogs. There’s a paragliding perspective over Turkey, a cliff jump in Croatia, and a selfie we wouldn’t recommend seeing if you’re nervous on airplanes.
For nature at its pristine and picturesque best, we visit northern Norway, the Huayhuash Mountains of Peru, and New Zealand’s Blue Pools. Africa also gets in on the action with a spectacular sunrise in Namibia and a road in Madagascar that almost looks too incredible to be real. Fortunately, it’s as real as it gets and awaiting your exploration.
