My hotel Instagram faves #5

I love Instagram, it’s definitely my favourite of all the social media platforms. As we all know pictures speaks louder than words and from the comfort of our couch/bed/desk/train seat we can travel the world and, in my case, explore the world of beautiful hotels in far flung places. And some…
