With the springtime just around the corner, now is a great time to start thinking about summer travel plans if you haven’t planned them already! Just like any time of the year, there are new developments and changes that will shape the travel industry for a few months at a time and this summer is no different.

By now, you’ve seen our other posts about Instagram accounts you should be following to be inspired about travel but how can you find more? Or maybe, you’d like if more than just your family and friends knew about your adventures. The most common way to find things on various forms of social media are #hashtags. Much like categories or tagging, #hashtags help us find images, posts, accounts, videos and more about a specific topic on platforms where there’s an assortment of streamed content but no real way to organize. Clicking on or searching a hashtag will show you only the posts relevant to what you’ve searched – as long as the poster used the hashtag, that it. That’s why in addition to finding new & amazing travel posts and accounts to like, share and follow, it’s important to use tags properly so like-minded travellers can find your posts and accounts also. Online communities of passionate travellers have been built especially over the last few years through this type of sharing and connecting. Here are just a few of our favourite hashtags to use on pictures of your travels, as well as search when you’re looking for your next trip.

Oceans and coastlines, mountaintops, cityscapes and busy roadways all look better from 30,000 feet in the air. In our everyday lives, its easy to forget the sheer magnitude of the planet we share; and travelling can sometimes remind us just how much is truly left to explore. Even flying into a place you’ve called home your whole life can give you brand new perspective when seeing it from above for the first (or 10th!) time. Here, we share some of the most breathtaking window seat pictures ever.
