Vine, the new “microblogging” video platform, is our latest social media fascination. Though the videos are only six seconds long, the creativity and gorgeous imagery of these short “vines” are undeniably impressive. Comedians and musicians all have their place in the Vine world, but the ones we’re really charmed by are the travelers. Whether they’re bringing us #6secondsofcalm with a beautiful vista or flipping through the world’s most famous landmarks in six seconds flat, travelers have found a new home to share their stunning moments.
Here are some of our favorite travel vines for you to enjoy, but be warned, these short clips are very addicting. We’ve got a strong feeling you won’t be able to watch just one.
