The Beautiful Alternate-Reality Version of 2016, Right Here. Thanks, Instagram.

Walk with Us Through Our Instagram Account’s Finest Moments of the Year

There is a place.

A place devoid of elections, fake news, divisiveness, strife, tumult and unease.

It’s a magical place filled with camaraderie, treehouses, drinks, lobster pizzas and endless Santorini nights; a place where the world presents an unrealistically curated version of its life so aliens in other galaxies can feel bad about themselves. This magical place is known as “Instagram.”

And now, we take a look at 2016, the Instagram version.

Most treehouses don't have private pools. Meet the exception. @keemalaphuket #Phuket
