The Most Popular Instagram Photos of 2014

Best Travel Bloggers on Instagram

Instagram is by far my favourite social media platform. It can either be a passive social network where you post snapshots or behind-the-scenes pictures of your life or it can challenge, inspire and motivate you to work harder, whether that be on your photography, or, increasingly, as a form of motivation for others on a similar path as you.

I love Instagram because it’s a way to explore the world through other peoples eyes.


As the new year begins I want to share my most popular Instagram photos of 2014. Most of them surprised me – I mean, who’d have thought that a (very tasty) burger would be in the top 5?!

I hope you’ll join my travel adventures in 2015

Location: Traders Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Story: I thought I’d found the bar with the best view of KL’s Petronas Towers when I dined at Marini’s on 57 but I was proven wrong when I was taken to the Sky Bar inside Trader’s Hotel. What a view…

Location: Dubai International Airport, United Arab Emirates

Story: I was surprised by how many people LOVE burger photos and my Shake Shack pitstop enroute to Paris proved well liked on Instagram. Delicious to eat AND photograph!

My Shack Burger picture, taken at the new Shake Shack Covent Gardens store, was also among my top Insta-pics.

    That NY snow pic is amazing!! I love Instagram, but I seem to only use Instagram when I travel. I’m trying to get better at the whole Instagramming while home thing. – Instagram – tvchicker

    The lights at the photo in Sri Lanka is very mystic and unique. I like it more than other ones. I’ve recently learned about your blog and I’m happy that you’ve shared some of the best photos of the last year here. Thank you.
