Weekly Travel Motivation: Pictures Worth Pinning

Pictures worth pinning: weekly travel motivation from Poplar Travels” where we will share our favorite and most inspiring photos from social media every week!

I find that the most difficult part of planning a trip is organizing all of my thoughts, research, and guidebook photos into a solid itinerary for the place where I would like to travel. In the past I have used binders full of info from travel guides and vision boards to piece together my future trips.

Guide Books

Pinterest allows me to create online vision boards that group my images into categories such as: bucket list, Forth of July, and New Zealand trip. These images are even linked to blog posts and other websites specific to my destination, which makes my planning so much easier.


Pinterest is our favorite platform to use when we create visual lists and inspirational boards. Nowadays, more and more travelers are using Pinterest to plan their vacations, long-term travel, and their dream trips.

We love sharing photos from our travels on Pinterest, so we are now creating a weekly post of pinnable photos from our favorite destinations!

Do you have travel inspiration you think is worth adding to our list? Share it with us using #PoplarTravels and we might feature you in our weekly motivation!


If you have any pictures worth pinning, pin or tweet us using #PoplarTravels. Follow our weekly travel motivations with #PoplarTravels on Twitter or search for Poplar Travels on Pinterest!
