Not to worry, because I have the best London quotes to use as Instagram captions to solve this problem, so you can get right back to sightseeing on double decker’s, shopping and eating!

Imagine one day, you’re stuck in traffic on your way to work. You have your coffee with you, listen to the radio and start to daydream about visiting a new place. Or if you are, like I have had too often, stuck in an immensely busy subway in your city, barely able to move and you can JUST hold on to not fall over. And before you know it, you have booked your next trip. Perhaps to London.

And here you are. Ready to take on London. A camera strapped to your neck or your phone ready to get into photography mode. Your itinerary is fully stocked, everything is planned and you’re so ready to enjoy London to the fullest. If you’re just a little bit like me, your camera roll is already almost full with hundreds of photos. Even dozens of pictures in the same place and you know there’s only one good picture in there, somewhere.

Please tell me your secret if you have more than 1 or 2 good pictures from a photo session. There’s always someone photobombing my pictures, or my hair does not look good, my outfit suddenly looks very weird and creased and then, finally, I have the perfect shot. I think. Until I notice I have my eyes closed. Yup. I definitely always have maybe 1-2 pictures to use on social media. The rest is just for my own memories, funny memories making me re-live the fun times of the photo sesh.

So, you have selected all your photos ready to post on social media. And there’s the next struggle. Hello Instagram captions. Gosh, not again. These things are just horrible if you feel uninspired. You have the most perfect picture to post but not a great story to go with it. Don’t you worry now, because I got your back with these London quotes, perfect for Instagram captions and even a few Instagram puns. They make it really easy to post your photo, add one of the quotes, maybe a little fun side story with it and it is ready to go live. And let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a good travel quote?!
