TSA (tsa)
Although I’ve been following the TSA on Instagram for a while, I never thought about making them Travel Instagrammer of the Week since their photos aren’t very pretty. But after reading Rolling Stone’s “100 Best Instagram Accounts” and seeing them listed as number-four, I changed my mind.

Says Rolling Stone: “Even the most relaxed travelers might experience pre-flight anxiety after looking through the Transportation Security Administration’s account. Most of the feed is devoted to photos of the items the TSA has confiscated from luggage at various airports — and the only proper reaction to it is WTF?!? The items go beyond full-size bottles of shampoo; we’re talking about a hatchet and brass knuckles, loaded handguns, live eels and a shocking number of batarangs. And that’s just the stuff the TSA actually catches. It’s utterly fascinating, and — if we’re being honest — a little terrifying.” I completely agree so give the TSA a follow and leave the prohibited stuff at home.
