The Instagram effect is a thing. It’s a great outlet for inspiration and artistic expression, BUT. The big ol’ but. For me (and I’ve read this is true for most people) it can also cause massive FOMO and feelings of not quite measuring up to the perfection that is broadcast.
I want to show anyone who would find a good healthy dose of messy reality refreshing five times when travel – for me – was not a pretty post. Or any kind of pretty at all.
