10 Best Travel Instagrams From Last Week

The best of the best featured on @afarmedia last week

As much as we may love a good winter wonderland, we often find ourselves yearning for an escape from the season's weather. Last week on #traveldeeper we found that escape, from the golden dunes of the UAE to the beaches of Rio and Miami. We dreamed about cruises on the Nile and beautiful morning paddles on an ice-free Lake Louise. But most of all, we agreed that hiding out in a beautiful museum like the Natural History Museum in London (pictured above) just may be the best place to while away the winter days. Check out the rest of the top 10 below and don't forget to follow @afarmedia and tag your photos #traveldeeper for a chance to be featured next week!
