Feeling the need to explore after the world opens back up? We’re not surprised. Being cooped up for the greater good of the population is necessary but we think wanderlust is on the minds of many people these days. And how could it not be? With the increased time we spend on our social media accounts, we are constantly day dreaming about escaping this reality. And who can blame you?

The question is, if you could go anywhere in the world after all of this, where would it be? Are you looking for that picturesque landscape on a secluded beach or the hustle and bustle of a busy European city? While that might be left for you to decide, there are so many resources out there to help with your travel inspiration. In fact, Instagram is a great place to look when you are trying to decide where you want to go. Not only are there accounts specifically dedicated to highlighting some of the best and unique places in this world to travel, but the use of travel hashtags and location pins has also opened up the world of social media to new and exciting locations.
