I’ve been on the go a lot this past month and it seems as though, right now, I’m on the road more than I’m home! Last month I was lucky enough to visit London, one of my favourite cities in the world, and I’ve just returned from a whirlwind trip to Bologna and Florence. I’m off again tomorrow to explore two additional cities I’ve never been to before: first to Hamburg and then on to Lisbon, where the annual WOW Trip is taking place. So much city excitement!

In celebration of cities around the world, the theme of this month’s Instagram Challenge was #MyCityCapture, with the invitation to post your favourite capture of a city on Instagram with this tag. I was completely blown away by both the quality and number of Instagrammers that took part in the challenge, which meant narrowing down my favourite 10 posts was a very challenging task indeed! Nevertheless, it’s been done and in the roundup below you’ll find my final picks of the best posts of the challenge. Congratulations to all the featured Instagrammers and if you like what you see here, you might like to follow along with these globe wanderers on their journeys.
