We live in a world where people are obsessed with social media, so it's no surprise our Instagram accounts never take a vacation, even when we do.
How else would everyone know you're having a fabulous time on vacay if you don't post a couple hot-dog-leg beach pics of Instagram?
When it comes capturing your travels through the lens of a iPhone camera, there tend to be two types of people in this world.
On one hand, there are those who give you and unfiltered view of their vacations by uploading everything from the good to the bad, to the downright ugly aspects of their experiences abroad.
On the other hand, there are those who try to paint a picture-perfect view of their luxurious travels by snapping a variety of staged, phony photos.
Let's face it, you can post all the pristine palm tree pictures you want, but at the end of the day, a Valencia filter won't help you find your lost luggage.
The reality of traveling tends to looks a lot different than the way it's portrayed on Instagram, and your adventures aren't always going to be filled with butterflies and rainbows like those accounts lead you to believe.
Take a look at the pictures below to see what vacation looks like on Instagram vs. real life.
