There’s no denying we live in a world of selfies–photos you take of yourself. With smartphones in every pocket and GoPros at every turn, it’s easy to whip out the camera and strike a pose at a moment’s notice. After all, #selfie remains a top trending hashtag on Instagram.
While taking a selfie might seem like a pretentious and vain way of capturing your traveling experiences, it turns out it can actually be pretty inspiring. Beautiful, even.
