Traveling is good for the soul and it's a shame that we can't do it more often. Seeing new places, meeting new people, and trying new foods are just some of the things that we do when we travel. Experiencing a new place can be uplifting and life-changing. As humans, it's something we yearn for. We just crave it.

While we would all like to be able to live a life that is less crazy and hectic, taking photos is just part of the travel experience these days. People simply love to capture special moments and share them with the world by way of social media. That's nothing new, but since Instagram came into our lives, sharing photos is so much more involved, and it all starts with using the best Instagram captions.

But first, you have to take the perfect photo. If you are traveling, narrowing your pictures down might be a task in and of itself. And then, once you find the photo(s) that you want to share, you have to find the perfect filter. Although, being in a place that requires #nofilter is the ultimate goal. And then comes the really tough part: a caption. 

You are experiencing a new place. You are indulging. You are seeing the world through your eyes, but it looks so different. And you love it. But how do you convey all of those feelings to your Instagram followers? By using the best caption for your vacation. 

We have collected some of the best Instagram captions — specifically, travel captions for Instagram  — giving you some fantastic options to help capture exactly how you are feeling while you're away. The only thing that you have to do is narrow them down (or upload 30 photos so that you can use them all!). 

So, get ready to upload your vacation pictures because these captions are going to help put all of your travel emotions into words. And, in case you were wondering, yes: We're already jealous. Bon voyage!
