Travel Expectations Vs Reality (80 Pics)

These days most people don’t wear rose-colored glasses, they opt for an Instagram filter instead.

    I’ve visited a lot of location of this list. And a lot of your pictures are total bullshit… e.g if you take a picture of Rio during a huge event, of course the beach will be crowded as fuck…
