Woman With Agoraphobia Afraid To Leave Her House Becomes Instagram Sensation For Her Travel Pics, Has 80K+ Fans



Anxiety disorders can leave a person so crippled with fear of the outside. A New Zealander, Jacqui Kenny living in London suffers from agoraphobia. It’s an affliction that took away her dreams of wandering the globe and photographing its many hidden corners. When Jacqui discovered Google Maps, she found an inventive way to explore far-away lands, without ever setting foot outside her flat. Each time she stumbles to something, she takes a screen-capture, edits the photo to bring out its latent beauty. And posts it on her Instagram page, The Agoraphobic Traveller. Since going viral with her minimal and peaceful cropped portraits, Jacqui has teamed up with Google to promote the usefulness of Street View. And even made a brave voyage to New York City to show her work as a gallery exposition. Scroll down to see everywhere the pin dropped, and vote for the places you’d love to visit – digitally or otherwise.
