My Instagram newsfeed is a veritable source of non-stop travel porn from the likes of NatGeo, CN Traveler, T + L, and others travel-based magazines. (SHAMELESS PLUG: follow me! @savilirt) The other day, I saw an amazing photo from CN Traveler of tea fields in a valley of the lush green Wuyi Mountains in China, and I said to myself, I have to get here one day!

Here’s the actual photo that incited the said wanderlusting:
