Welcome to the Blog

When I first started using Instagram, I never had any expectation it would lead to something this big. My husband and I are fortunate to travel a lot, and I wanted other people to be able to see the same beauty of the world that we were able to see. So I created a personal account to display the photos from our trips. After a short time though, I realized that there is so much more to see and share in this world than just our own personal experiences and pictures. That's why I created @Wonderful_Places.

@Wonderful_Places was created in August 2012. In the beginning I was posting photos from the internet and I hit 20K followers in about 3 months. Before long, people started tagging their photos with #wonderful_places and soon I was overwhelmed by so many amazing photographs taken by talented Instagramers from all over the world. I started to feature some of my favorite photos from the tag. As a result the account starting growing even faster with much more engagement. The hashtag #wonderful_places has now been used over 1 million times!

Thanks to the loyalty of my followers, @Wonderful_Places hit 2M followers in just over 2 years. Now it is the largest travel account on Instagram. Every day it reaches people all over the world and inspires them in their lives, encourages them to travel, and appreciate the beauty of our incredible world.

With this blog/website we will be able to share more travel related photography from amazing places throughout the world. Sharing from our own journeys and experiences while also featuring some of the most amazing places and photos that the world can offer.

Enjoy the blog! Make Every Day Wonderful!

  8. Hi there,
    I’m new to instagram and learning a ton about photography. I just want to say how inspiring and amazing your photos are!! After having a second child I really want to get out of the rat race and focus on photography. I’m wondering do you do this for a living? I’m trying to find someone a few steps ahead of me to Learn from or just even to have hope in a future other than feeling like a robot stuck in a cube haha, I want to live and am excited about all the neat ways to connect on instagram. If there is any way for you to be able to reply with any feedback that would be amazing, if not I realize that you are probably in high demand as your talent is clear. Either way thank you for being an inpirartion to brand new photographers including myself :)
    Bless you, I’m thankful to see pictures like thus even if I never get to see these areas myself.
