It’s only when my fingers started getting numb did I realize that maybe I should ween myself off my phone – and Instagram. This craziness has to stop. When did I stop reading and do this? I guess it was because I was pretty late to the smartphone party and have only just been privy to the wonders of Instagram.
Being someone who loves taking photographs, it’s only natural for me to be sucked in to “Instagram Land”. There are times when I actually search for more gems to “double tap”. So, just when I thought I could take a step back and re-evaluate my “addiction”, along comes a wonderful 30-day Instagram challenge. The lovely ladies at Travelettes came up with fun and simple themes for the entire month of August.
My concern for the health of my fingers went out the window. The challenge was on! Every day became a cause – to showcase the best picture I could. It gave me something to look forward to every morning (besides my morning coffee!)
But the best part of the challenge has been the incredible ladies I’ve met from around the world who all share the same passion for travelling. It’s been a real treat finding out what local food they have in Berlin, how life is like in Costa Rica and what travel books everyone reads.
It’s the last day of the challenge and needless to say, I am going to miss it. But all good things must come to an end. Maybe now I can put my phone down and plan out my next trip instead. If there is one thing that these amazing women have taught me, it is that the world awaits me…
