If we can’t be swimming in the clear Maldivian waters or strolling along the river Seine with a croissant in hand, we can, at the very least, live vicariously through these digital postcards. We have rounded up six local insta-travellers with feeds that will have you globetrotting from the comfort of your own bed.

| 04/05/16 | 2100 | I'm home, after 3 weeks of traveling through New Zealand with 3 friends. It was a trip that seemed crazily impossible when we first planned for it earlier in the year due to budget constrains and what nots. But I knew this was what I wanted, so I worked hard and took every opportunity that was given to me. It wasn't easy but I knew the rainbow at the end was gonna be worth it and it certainly was. It feels great to be back, but I can see myself leaving again real soon. I guess I just can't keep my feet on the ground haha. With this grad trip, I can proudly say that I'm done with polytechnic. It was insanely tiring and tumultuous, but I'll definitely miss it. My motto for myself this year is — "Don't just say you want it. Make it happen."
There’s something very elusive and unexplainably calming about endless greenery, winding lakes and snow-capped mountains. If you’re all about the road-tripping life, Jerald’s picturesque snaps will make you feel like you’re almost one with nature. Scrolling through his scenic feed whisks us away from the urban jungle we live in, just for a fleeting moment.
