Reserve123 In Europe

Wednesday, November 21st, 2012

Are you on Instagram? If not, you should truly join. For those visually-driven social media users, Instagram is a Godsend. Twitter is for those of us who have something to say to the world; Instagram is for those of us who have something to show the world, and unlike Pinterest, the content is (usually) created by the user. If you’ve ever sat alone in a nice, little park for lunch and thought, “I wish I could share this moment with someone,” you need Instagram.

The Reserve123 team is all over the map, and most recently, Nikita spent some time in Europe. She was kind enough to take us on her photo journey via Instagram, and my goodness, ’twas a beautiful journey!
