Thanks to Street View, online virtual tours and that gosh darn Oculus Rift, most travelers have "seen" the world without actually seeing the world. But don't be fooled: An epic adventure via screen is not the same as an epic adventure in real life.
We asked the photographer community at EyeEm for photos that capture the adrenaline rush of adventure ... and, unsurprisingly, not one of them takes place on a computer or movie screen.
So toss your tech aside, book a one-way ticket and let your wanderlust run wild in these heart-stealing destinations.
