It’s the Instagram account that’s taking over the world — literally.Murad Osmann and his girlfriend Natalia Zakharova have traveled to destinations most people only dream about: They’ve seen the rice fields in Bali, swam in the Singapore infinity pool, walked the streets of Barcelona, and even toured Disneyland in Hong Kong.

But instead of run-of-the-mill tourist shots, Murad snapped pictures of his girlfriend taking his hand and leading him through some of the world’s most iconic and recognisable landmarks. There are more down-to-earth pictures too, like those of Natalia on a park swing, or at a bowling alley.

The series is aptly titled, “Follow Me” on Murad’s Instagram account, which has since gone viral with almost 50,000 followers at the time of this post.

The first photo happened accidentally in Barcelona when Natalia and Murad were on vacation. “Nataly was a bit annoyed that I was always taking pictures of everything, so she grabbed my hand and tried to pull me forward,” he explained to The Daily Mail UK.

“That said it didn’t stop me from doing photos while she was pulling me. So that’s how it all started.”

Murad graduated as a civil engineer from Imperial College London, but later decided to pursue a career in photography and started his own production company Hype Production in 2011. The Daily Mail UK reports that his girlfriend Natalia works as a Russian journalist, and they have been together for a year and a half.
