5. The Ugly Truth About Instagram And Travel
But the saddest way that Instagram is ruining travel is by diluting it to something incredibly shallow. Travel should expose you to new scenery, cultures, and philosophies. It should teach you important lessons from history and provide the opportunity to meet new people and try new foods. It should not provide historic, sacred, and treasured places as a backdrop for a ridiculously staged Instagram photo. Yet every hour spent focused on capturing the perfect photo in a flowing sundress or leaping high into the air is an hour not spent sliding down the snow-white sand dunes of White Sands National Park or learning about black history in America, like travelers did until Instagram was invented in 2010.
