10 Most Annoying Instagram Photos People Post While Travelling

There are those people who seem to be on a constant European escapade 6 months of the year and if their Instagram are anything to go by we love to hate them (don’t worry it’s only because we are jealous). Scrolling through all the beautiful pictures of foreign lands and rich culture. But amongst those cultural gems can be a few bad ones along the way that make you think “Why oh Why did you post that”.

Needless to say unfortunately I think I can say “Guilty” to some of these .


1. Sunrise/Sunsets Sunset instagrams

I acknowledge I have nothing against sunsets or the posting of one but you do not need to post every sunset you sit and watch on your Hawaiian Holiday. Keep it to a one sunset per holiday maximum

This next one has to be broken down into a ‘two-parter’

2A. Hot Dog Legs: Hot Dog Legs instagram

There is a whole tumblr dedicated to illustrating how ridiculous this is.

2B. Feet in the sand Feet in the sand instagram Captioned “My feet went to the beach”. Maybe it’s just me, but I really don’t like feet.

3. Clouds:

Caption- “Look the sky has clouds”. It’s really original and creative. Those are some exciting clouds.


4. Screen shots of weather forecast

We are all well aware you are on a beautiful holiday with gorgeous weather. No need to rub salt in the wound.


5. Food food instagram

There are some foods that deserve Instagram fame and many that don’t.


6. Boarding Pass boarding pass instagram

Clearling this is not about your boarding pass but of course everything else that you can see in the picture. Your awesome hipster magazine, your expensive watch and your designer luggage. Maybe I would post this kind of picture –  I don’t have an expensive watch or designer luggage.


7. Asleep in Bed

Ok this isn't me, but its so damn funny

This is just so funny


8. Elevator Selfie. #OOTD

At least put a second or third person in there with you


9. Love heart hands

No explanation needed.


10.Working out workout instagram

We all know apart from the miles of walking you do while travelling, most people do not work out on holiday. Let’s be honest.
