10 Pics You NEED To Perfect If You're Gonna Travel The World
Instagrams are a dime a dozen - or are they?
Curating a wanderlust-worthy feed is harder than it looks, but if your dream is to travel the world and give your friends some serious FOMO in the process, then you're going to need some tips.
If you want to look like you had the best time on your holiday (even if you didn't) then follow these simple tips to perfect your 'gram game before you jet off on your next adventure...
1. A PHOTO IN FRONT OF CLEAR BLUE WATER
Take a pic in front of the clearest blue water you can find. Even if you can't afford to stay in that area, pretend that you can. Swim, splash around
2. A PHOTO IN FRONT OF A FAMOUS LANDMARK
So you look 'cultured', preferably as you also hold a glass of wine.
3. YOU HOLDING ONTO A PALM TREE
Pose like you didn't just ask someone to take the photo of you.
4. THE SCENIC SHOT
So that you don't look narcissistic after posting travel pics of just you.
5. THE BACK FACING WATERFALL PIC
From the back so that no one can see the sweat and exhaustion on your face from trekking it to the fall.
6. THE GIRLS YACHT SHOT
Make it look like you hired your own yacht, just try not to get the other tourists on the boat in the background.
7. THE SUNSET PIC
Who doesn't love sunsets? and who doesn't love a candid shot from behind?
8. THE 'SUMMER ROMANCE'
Take a photo of the hottest guy you can find and post it, even if he's a random. Because everyone loves a holiday romance. You're so worldly.
9. THE THRILL SEEKER PHOTO
Take a photo doing something adventurous so that people think you've been doing something other than just sitting and drinking on the beach all day.
10. THE EXPENSIVE COCKTAIL SNAP
Pay $25 for a cocktail because it looks pretty and it makes you look fancy.
Although these posts won't guarantee you'll be the next successful travel blogger and gain thousands of followers or endless free first class flights... it's definitely a start.
