8 photos to inspire wanderlust this long weekend

2014-04-25 15:27
What’s the best thing that can happen after a 4-day week? A long weekend, obviously! Aren’t we the lucky ones.  

On Sunday we will not only be celebrating Freedom Day, but also 20 years of Democracy. That’s a pretty big deal, you know? And that’s why we have Monday off too… okay, not really (this always happens if a public holiday falls on a Sunday)! But it might as well be.  

So, why not celebrate your right to freedom of expression and movement in our beautiful country by doing something adventurous?

While you need not travel far to experience something new, we thought we’d just inspire you with a few Instagram pics that are sure to inspire wanderlust, adventure and an appreciation for freedom.  

Here they are:

1. AfrikaBurn - it's happening next week and we so wish we could have been there! 

2. When your car breaks down, it needn't be a bad thing...

3. Old-school roadtripping. Taken in Kanab, Utah, USA (can you believe
that guy from Myspace took this pic?)

4. Beach treats are always a bonus... and Cape Town always gorgeous! 

5. Bridges always lead somewhere. Taken in Costa Rica

6. Bonfires are the best! Taken somewhere around Voss, Norway
7. Conquer your fears! 

8. Find the perfect place to chill!
So, now that you've seen these inspirational wanderlust pics, be sure to send us yours to pics@news24travel.com or mention us in a comment on Instagram
