The 20 Most Inspiring Travel Photos of the Week

by Katie Scott Aiton Oct 14, 2015

EACH WEEK WE CHOOSE OUR favorite images from readers, fans, and travelers, who tag their photos with #travelstoke and post them on our Instagram account. These pictures provide a daily dose of inspiration, and challenge us to photograph the world in innovative ways.

This week, we’ve dedicated our gallery to the students at MatadorU. Here’s this week’s editors’ picks of our students finding some serious #travelstoke:

1. Image shot by Jeremy Ullmann in Kyrygzstan.
