Last Week’s Top 10 Travel Instagrams
This time, @afarmedia was all about the great outdoors (and a surprising amount of snow!) last week. For two days we took a vicarious trek around the world in the footsteps of AFAR Ambassador Dan Tom with his ethereal shots of mountain vistas from Norway to Argentina. We got outside the metropolis of Chicago to take a peek back at its skyline. We even chose to dine al fresco in Paris to enjoy the last few days of summer.

Check out the rest of the top 10 posts from last week, and be sure to tag your favorite travel photos with #traveldeeper for a chance to be featured next week.

    The Lincoln Park Zoo pavilion has many functions—it’s an outdoor classroom, yoga studio, event space, and walkway (among other things). Our favorite? Providing the coolest natural frame for that iconic Chicago skyline.
