St. Augustine once said, “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” With the rise in remote jobs, more and more people are traveling while they’re still young, rather than waiting for retirement, and seeing others living this way through social media is helping wanderlust to spread like wildfire. It’s also causing a positive shift in global consciousness, since the more people travel, the more accepting of other cultures they become. Mark Twain said it best:
Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the Earth all one’s lifetime.
To celebrate those with wanderlust, like most of the Visual News team, who have caught the travel bug, and spend their free time planning their next trip, we searched Instagram for this lovely collection of travel pics that will undoubtedly have you price checking plane tickets to someplace awesome.
