    There’s nothing we love more than looking at beautiful pictures, taking beautiful pictures and sharing beautiful pictures, whether we’re on the way to work, on holiday or even waiting for a plane.

    We’re also addicted to sharing exactly where we are in the world with our friends, family and followers, which is why Instagram’s geotagging function is the best (nothing gives us a thrill quite like clicking ‘Great Barrier Reef’ or ‘Eiffel Tower’ or something equally exotic).

    Now Instagram, as part of their year in review, have revealed the most geotagged locations around the world – and in the UK.

    There are some obvious ones in there, sure, like Times Square and Camden Town – and some not particularly glamorous destinations, like Heathrow Airport – but for the huge majority, just scrolling through the pictures is giving us a major case of wanderlust.

    Check out the world’s – and the UK’s – most geotagged locations below, and scroll through the gallery above to see some of the enviable destinations we want to visit.
