This is kind of a big deal. Instagram Travel Thursday has officially kicked off both in German and Italian.
I started Instagram Travel Thursday to unite travel bloggers on Instagram despite the country they live in, or the language they write in. While the project has been somewhat slowly growing in English, it has been explosively growing in Finnish in Finland, and we are also close hitting a 10,000-photo mark on Instagram. It is safe to say, we have done pretty amazing job getting a few thousand travel enthusiasts together on Instagram. My simple goal is to help people to use Instagram as their travel guide by connecting with real people. That’s why I wrote my book Instagram as your guide to the world (did you know you can get it for free by subscribing to my newsletter?), and started the IGTT project. Instagram completely changed the way I plan my travels, and I hope it will change it for others as well. The best about Instagram is really the people you can connect with. Here are a few new people whom I would like to introduce you to, our new IGTT co-hosts in Switzerland, Austria, Germany and in Italy. I hope you will follow their travels and if you blog in German or Italian, now you can join Instagram Travel Thursday!
