The fearless guys and gals of Instagram don’t f*** around when it comes to adventure. No tree goes unclimbed. No sunset goes unsavored. No water goes un-bathed in.
With mid-week monotony starting to take hold, it’s time to escape into another dose of inspiring travel Instagrams. So about those trees and sunsets and inviting waters…
Sam Kolder knows a thing or two about tall flora. He monkeyed his way up a tree in San Francisco to capture a fresh perspective on the Golden Gate Bridge. The week’s sunset masters are the duo behind @_getting_lost_together, who caught an especially pretty one over the Twelve Apostles in Australia, and Chris Burkard, who finally achieved his dream of spending the golden hour on California’s Half Dome. It only took him 30 years and 7 trips up the rock formation to do it.
As for inviting waters, take your pick. Maybe you fancy a traditional gondola ride in Venice. Maybe you’d rather cross the infinity pool at Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands off your bucket list. Maybe you’re craving a dip in Iceland’s hidden hot spring pool, Seljavallalaug. Or perhaps, like Sam Pilgrim, you’re game to take a flying leap off a boat into the bay of Palma de Mallorca.
Or maybe you’re into none of that. Maybe camel rides or mountain climbs or cheeky desert nudity are more your speed. It’s all waiting in the gallery above.
