Things we’d rather be doing right now: strolling by the Seine, stargazing in Peru, exploring the markets of Mauritius, adventuring in Ecuador. All that and more is happening in this week’s round-up of the hottest travel Instagrams currently making the rounds.
Olivier Wong went “chasing light” with a pack of friends in Paris. He admits the photo is staged, but with the city looking so utterly exquisite, it’s impossible to care. From Paris we venture to Italy, where ‘grammer @live_with_ru discovered the perfect Amalfi Coast beach. The perfection continues in Austria and Scotland, where the charming town of Halstatt and the rugged landscape of the Isle of Skye look like settings straight from fairytales.
Moving on to Asia, we get a glimpse of Harmandir Sahib, the breathtaking Golden Temple of Amritsar, India, and the ancient pagodas of Bagan, Myanmar. Far more modern but no less impressive is an aerial view of Doha, the capital of Qatar.
The most serious cases of wanderlust took Instagrammers to a few extreme and inventive destinations this week. We’d happily spend a night in Canada‘s Enchanted Forest treehouse. We might even be talked into Alaskan glacier kayaking. Perching on the edge of an erupting Hawaiian volcano, however… we may need a tequila or two before we’re ready for that one.
