When is the last time someone actually wore a pair of rose-colored glasses; especially when there are filters available with social media tools like Instagram. These mobile apps have somewhat hurt traveling. It’s one thing to read about different sites that seem amazing in books and articles, but look so much different with the use of Instagram – reality looks different from the expectations built up by what’s seen online.
There are a number of people who have posted photographs online and used different filters to look different from the perception of reality. The following are 20 examples of photographs that ruin the reality of popular travel destinations.
The Great Wall of China
It’s beautiful to see, when it’s not filled with thousands of tourists that make it seem like a long line to the restroom.
Leaning Tower of Pisa
Many like to get the picture of them leaning on the Italian power, but its awkward seeing hundreds doing the pose at the same time.
It would be nice if you could get close to the painting at the Louvre Museum in Paris, France; not so easy when hundreds come at any given time.
There are pictures found of couples enjoying a picnic near the giant tower in Paris, but it’s usually too crowded to enjoy any space.
