In addition to satisfying your wanderlust and exposing you to new foods and cultures, one of the fun perks of travel nowadays is getting to check out new geofilters on Snapchat. These designed overlays — which anyone can create and submit — are always exclusive to the regions they appear in.

You might even get some new ideas for hidden spots to add to your travel bucket list!
