Ahmet Dogan’s Gorgeous Photos From Kyrgyzstan

I came across Ahmet Dogan’s photos while browsing through the #CentralAsia tag on Instagram, looking for inspiration for a road trip across the “-stans” later this year.

Ahmet’s incredible landscapes opened my eyes to the beauty of a country that I barely knew existed a year ago. Thanks to Ahmet, I am more than excitd to experience Kyrgyzstan for myself.

Ahmet mostly posts superb landscapes from the region surrounding Kyrgyzstan’s capital, Bishkek, but the map of his photos over the past year documents his trips across the country. He also seems to have a thing for squirrels.

#JimmyEatsAmerica – @jimmyeatsw0rld Eats His Way Across The USA

Last year, my friend, travel photographer, and food blogger, Jimmy Dau set off on a road trip to eat his way across the USA. Jimmy mentioned to me before he left that he thought it was cool to build a map that would trace his journey across America using his photos from Instagram, inspiring me to build the Embeddable Instagram Maps tool.

I didn’t get the tool built in time, but Jimmy’s road trip went on anyway, as he ate his way through tailgates and BBQ joints across the country.
