Over the past decade or so, packing a suitcase and traveling around the world has seemingly become more popular than ever. People have been going on epic excursions "for the 'Gram," and finding adorable hotels to take pictures in from coast to coast. The rise of bloggers, vloggers, and travel influencers has made it nearly impossible to scroll through social media and not see a bucket list-worthy destination.
