Iceland – the Land of Fire and Ice
No other place on Earth rivals Iceland’s geological diversity and photogenic ponies, waterfalls and glaciers. In Iceland, you’ll discover breathtaking waterfalls, geysers, fjords, mountains, glaciers, and so much more. Though there are countless sites to choose from, the most Instagrammable spots are Seljalandsfoss, Seyðisfjörður, Reynisfjara, Diamond Beach, Sólheimasandur (remember the ruins of the abandoned plane from the song Gerua?), and Svinafellsjokull Glacier among others. The names might be difficult to pronounce, but the places are all about simplistic beauty, making your feed as pretty as possible.
The Developed Desert of Dubai
This gem of a place in the middle of a desert is one of the most developed cities of the world. If there’s one example of how to turn your challenges into your USP, learn it from Dubai. From the tallest building of the world and one of the largest shopping malls to the infinite desert sands and the biggest aquarium – Dubai is the land of records. When you photograph these, your Instagram is going to be all about achievements because there hardly any destination that can beat this ambitious city.
Wilderness of Masai Mara
If you are fascinated by wildlife and the animal kingdom, Masai Mara is the place where you and your camera should take off to. Home to the Big 5 – The Buffalo, Elephant, Leopard, Lion, and Rhino, the reserve is a photographer’s and naturalist’s paradise, with abundant elephant, buffalo, giraffe, lion, and cheetah alongside the migratory wildebeest and zebra. Get your cameras ready because you will be awed by this part of the world where wild animals decide the day.
Italian Paradise of Tuscany
Long before Virushka made this place famous with their destination wedding, this Italian town was already flocked by tourists who love a mini road-trip on the countryside. With beautiful sunsets, sprawling fields on both sides, quaint little houses and pizzerias that smell of fresh pizza dough, live your Italian dream in this place. Make it Instagrammable by heading to a nearby field or one of the sunset points and enjoy an impromptu picnic. It’s a dream, turned into reality.

Creative ninja and a true follower of ‘Work, Save, Travel, Repeat’, I love to travel, experience places and bring back stories for a lifetime. Born and brought up in Ahmedabad, I like to visit the same old places, the same cliched tourist spots and destinations, but choose to see the unexplored in the old places. Always inclined towards the mighty mountains in their debate with the beaches!
