Instagram Top Locations For 2013

By Kishore Sawh on December 15th 2013


Travelling is just about the best form of education there is. It’s trite to say it but being trite doesn’t mean it’s any less true. How else can you learn what strange and delicious foods are out there to be had, or what it feels like to be surrounded by people who’ve no sense of where you come from, to push you outside your own comfortable habitat and grow? Travelling lets you partake in others’ lives, see things in a new light, and flip your prejudices and paradigms of the world. It’s also pretty much the best way to get good content to photograph. If you can’t make it out though, seeing said photographs are probably a nice mini retreat.
