Travel co-relates to lot of anticipation, expectations and experiences. The internet today is oozing out visually appealing pictures of places that will make you pack your bags and hop on a flight right now.

But here’s something wrong with it. The pictures are cured and boosted to look that beautiful and what upsets me is that, it simply kills the reality factor of the place.

Not only is it disappointing for someone who has high expectations of the place (thanks to all the images available online) but it also hinders in the process of the traveller actually liking the place as is.

Here are some myth-busting images of some of the most sought-after spots in the world.
