Using Instagram As Your Guide To The World

Instagram is my favorite form of social media. It’s visual blogging. With a short caption and a gorgeous photo, you can tell your story, share your world and discover new and exciting destinations, glimpses into the lives of others and  I dabbled with IG when it first came out but didn’t really get into it until a couple of months later. 2 years and 1,514 photos later, you could say I’m hooked.

Katja Presnal, the founder of Skimbaco Lifestyle recently published a book that teaches you how to use Instagram as your own personal travel guide. She dishes on tips and tricks on how to research different locations, discover new ones and share your own adventures on Instagram. I’m incredibly honored to have been mentioned as one of her recommended Instagrammers to follow!

Instagram As Your Guide To The World” will teach you “how,” “what,” and “who” to search for and follow on Instagram to help you travel the world. It’s chock-full of information and a must-buy whether you are a traveler, photographer or social media aficionado.

Katja is an avid Instagram user and posts photos under her @skimbaco account several times a day. She has also started a meme of sorts for “Skimbacoers” or lovers of life and adventure. If you tag your photo with #skimbaco, she may share your work on her @skimbacoers account. For strictly travel, follow her and the rest of the Skimbaco team on @skimbacotravel and visit Skimbaco online.
