If you've ever experienced vacation FOMO, you know summer is especially rough when it comes to scrolling through your Insta feed.
After a while, you start to notice some patterns. Here are seven vacation Instas literally everyone you know posted this summer:
1. THE "HOW ON EARTH DID THEY COORDINATE AN ISLAND SQUAD HANG WHEN I CAN'T EVEN GET A TEXT BACK?"
You're 12 texts deep into figuring out simple dinner plans with one person while this massive friend group somehow managed to all be free the same week and all book mega-in-advance flights. But they also look eerily unbothered and calm, like their plans somehow just happened and aren't the result of one person frantically bumping up the group email for six months straight. Nonetheless, it's deeply impressive–and jealousy-inducing.
2. THE "THEY'RE IN THEIR HONEYMOON PHASE IN A LITERAL HONEYMOON SPOT."
What's worse than sickeningly-in-love couples on Instagram? Sickening-in-love couples being infatuated with each other on vacation. Like, can they at least not pose in an idyllic, romantic paradise? Is that so much to ask?
3. THE "OF COOOOOOURSE THEY ALSO GOT ENGAGED."
An inarguably adorable couple blasting your feed with rom-com-poster-worthy pics also decided to get married??? Did you really not see that coming?
4. THE "THEY DEF WAITED TWO HOURS FOR THIS FOOD BUT I STILL WANT IT!"
You've seen this dessert all over the Internet, but you told yourself it was unattainable. It's only sold in a city thousands of miles away from you, after all. Well, someone you know went there, waited in line for 2 hours, and confirmed it lives up to the hype. Now you want it more than ever!
5. THE "OK, BUT HOW DID THEY WALK IN THOSE HEELS ALL DAY?"
While you've worn shorts and sneaks for every walking-intensive excursion you've ever been on, this person's not playing around. They picked out every flowy, flawless skirt because they refuse to be an un-glam tourist, and they want you to smash that "like" button when you see them.
6. THE "I FORGOT THIS PERSON EVEN HAD INSTAGRAM BECAUSE THEY ONLY POST ONE REALLY GOOD PIC A YEAR."
This person doesn't usually post much on Instagram, but when they do, it's fire. All of a sudden, you're hit with perfectly edited scenic shots of them in a flower field or under a waterfall or something equally Game of Thrones-esque in beauty. You get it though: after a photo like that, how could an everyday selfie even compete?
7. THE "AT LAST, SOMEONE I CAN RELATE TO!"
Just when you feel like the most introverted person you know, there's someone else on your feed couchin' it and letting the world know that that's a life-changing activity too.
