Researching Travel Destinations on Instagram

Why do you follow the accounts you do on Instagram?

I follow travel and tourism accounts to get inspiration for future travel plans.

Scrolling through my feed this morning, CN Traveler featured an interesting picture of a little village ‘accessible by traversing a quarter mile footbridge suspended at great heights’ – Civita di Bagnoreggio.


I must go there!

A quick look on ViaMichelin, my favourite online mapping tool, and I see it’s a comfortable weekend drive down the A1 to Orvieto, just north of Rome.

There seems to be a nice looking lake nearby as well – Lago di Bolsena.

Add to that a drive back through Montepulciano (nice little wine village) and on to another find near Empoli; San Miniato – thanks to a post by Italiait, the official Instagram account for tourism in Italy.

It’s been a beautiful start to the day.

All we need now is for the outside air to warm up so that I can get my shorts on and strap the camera round my neck.

Actually, I sling it over my shoulder; or carry it casually by the grip.
