One of my favorite ways to discover new travel destinations is to look at beautiful travel photos, and Instagram is a great way to do it. We’re taking part in a new Instagram Travel Thursday linkup, where we’ll post some of our own Instagram photos and link to some of the other participants. You can follow us on Instagram, too, where our user name is, you guessed it, alloverthemap.
For my first entry, I pulled together some photos from our time in Cambodia, which we really enjoyed. The landscape was beautiful, the people were warm and welcoming, the history and culture incredibly rich.
We have been traveling for 10 months now, and we’re heading home in just a few weeks. One question people often ask me is “Where are you going NEXT?” Usually, I sigh and roll my eyes and mumble something about how we’ll probably have to stay close to home for the foreseeable future, since we’ve sort of blown our travel budget for a while. But in my head I’m already thinking. And the top two places on the list are two places we didn’t go on this trip: Ireland and Italy. The photos of Cortina, Italy posted by Elena Sonnino of Live.Do.Grow are tilting the balance toward Italy today.
Stay tuned next Thursday when I’ll give a recap of our round-the-world trip via Instagram.
