INSTAGRAM – We spent a month lugging around
a ridiculously heavy stack of magazines. Then we asked the Instagram Universe to tag magazine-worthy photos with #travelwithfathom. And the Instagram Universe answered. Over a thousand times.
Some of our favorites from the batch are in this week's InstaTrip slideshow.
This wasn't easy: We were down to splitting hairs. The
winning photo of the dunes in the vast Gobi Desert was taken and tagged by @jess_531a. Congratulations, Jess! The big batch of indie magazines we've been collecting all summer ($175 worth, to be precise) is on its way to you. SEE OUR FAVORITE PHOTOS
