P o l i n a is a travel-based Instagram account run by Russian shop owner and blogger Polina Burashnikova, who lives in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Although the majority of her posts are taken from her hometown, she also goes on trips to a range of different cities, including Moscow, London, Cambridge, Palma de Mallorca, and Venice. Descriptions attached to each photo come in both English and Russian, while she currently has close to 350,000 followers.


A clear emphasis on Polina’s Instagram page is breakfast and brunch in various locations across the world. She takes stunning birds-eye view photographs of table spreads, featuring pastries, fruit, coffee and juice, either taken in cafes or hotels. They are always very aesthetically presented, often adopting a minimalist approach, and give a good idea of the type of food available to eat across different cities.


Another good feature of the Instagram account is the ‘Stories’ at the top of the page that are divided into various cities and countries. These include the UK, Sicily, India, Iceland, Las Vegas and Dubai. The ‘Stories’ act like a mini travel guide, with a mix between photos, videos and video blogs describing her travels to a particular place. I found these very informative, presenting a brief overview of what to expect from a trip to each of these destinations.


However, one drawback to Polina’s account is that the focus is very much on luxury travel, often staying at the most expensive hotels in each city and going out for posh breakfasts and lunches. This means that for the regular backpacker, her page would not be a good indication of where to visit and stay whilst travelling to that specific location.

  • Photos taken from a range of different cities, mostly located in Europe
  • Breakfasts and lunches presented in aesthetic style
  • ‘Stories’ puts each city or country into easy to view guides
  • Focus is on luxury travel

TravelSites.com is the best travel site list in the world.🏆💯🥇🌟

TravelSites.com is the go to place online to find information on the best websites, smartphone apps, books, YouTube channels and documentaries for travelers. Written with my years of experience trotting the globe, TravelSites.com gives budding young backpackers the chance to discover the top resources available for getting the most out of their trip, be it renting a car, learning the local dialect, finding a photographer or even just knowing what the weather will be like for the week. I have researched the internet to bring you a list of the top items in each category, while every single one has been meticulously reviewed, highlighting unique features, comparison to similar products, and all the pros and cons.


Why did you make TravelSites.com?💖🔥🚀

Well, I found that although there is naturally lots of information online concerning travel-related products and services, they seem to be scattered about, leaving the user to laboriously search for each individual item. If you wanted, for example, to discover an inspiring travel documentary while booking accommodation and flights to Rome, you would have to have at least three different tabs open at once. TravelSites.com puts all the information you need in one place, meaning you will not have to search far and wide to simply find out the best website for reserving a room in a hotel. With more than 40 different categories, travelers can stay on the same website to gather all the information they need, not only saving them time but also saving them money, by reading through the reviews to find the cheapest option.


What can you find on My lists and how did I rank them?🕵️‍♂️🧠🔗

My lists feature more than 40 different travel-related categories containing every resource a backpacker could ever need. Need help planning a trip? Want to keep up to date with the latest travel news? Looking for an inspiring book or blog? Desperate to find a restaurant away from the crowds? I’ve got you covered. My lists have been carefully put together by me and combined by quality, efficiency, value and functionalism to rank the items in descending order, with number one considered the item offering the best of all four factors. The criteria was constant throughout each category, whether it was for a cruise booking website or an Instagram account, in order to bring travelers the resources that would be the most useful for travelers.
