The 13 Most Inspiring Travel Photos This Week

United States Travel Journalism Galleries
by Katie Scott Aiton Nov 11, 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. Sunset Camel rides in the Sahara from Zagora, Morocco. Shot by Jeremy Ullmann.
