SMASH! Predictable

They may be predictable, but they're still awesome! Check out these classic travel pics sent in by readers. Send us yours!

Cape Town - If you scroll through any of your social media feeds right now, you're bound to find a rather predictable collection of pics and posts. 

It gets pretty boring, huh?

But, as is the case with overly-popular destinations, there's a reason why these pics reappear.

They are, in essence, actually really cool (why else would they have become so trendy?). You've just become desensitised to their beauty/brilliance!

Check out our SMASH! Predictable gallery

So, in an effort to rediscover their cool, we've decided to round-up five of the most obvious travel-related Instagram pictures around and share them with you.

Now, here's the fun part, we want you to do the same!

How to enter:

Come on! We know you have at least one of these five types of pics lurking around. So, smash predictable by sending them our way to or mention us in a comment on Instagram with the hashtag #smashpredictable. 

Need more incentive? Well, we'll give our favourite entry a R500 voucher*!

So, here you go... five of the most predictable pics you will find in your Instagram feed:

1. Sunrise/sunset - now send us yours to

If you live in Cape Town, you probably have a gazillion... we know this! 


2. Holiday selfie -
now send us yours to

You don't seriously expect us to believe you didn't take a selfie that one time you were chilling on the beach and no one was watching?!

3. Airplane wing -
now send us yours to

Last year a whole bunch of readers sent us their views from the window seat, so we KNOW you have them somewhere!

4. Beverage or food that is somehow out of this world -
now send us yours to

Of course you've taken a photo of the heart-shaped foam on your flat white. So have we. Don't be embarrassed!

5. Travel mascot -
now send us yours to

First there was the Lego Pilot and now the Lego Travellers... but Instagram is FULL of quirky travel mascots. Have one? Please share it with us!
