Currently travelling around the US, it’s become apparent that Armytage is, in fact, all of us on holidays. The endless quest for Instagrammable selfies. The compulsion to put your arms up and jump in every scenic photo. The inevitable wrong turn on a road trip. The days spent at Napa Valley wineries…
1. The wine-fuelled excitement
“Jumping for joy in my spiritual home,” she captioned one photo from her trip. No, she wasn’t at a place of religion significance, a scenic landscape or even Barney’s – but a winery.
Oh Sam, we feel you.
2. The "I must jump" photo
Because can people really tell if you're having fun if you're not literally jumping for joy?
"And again... (I can't stop jumping, I'm SO excited...) Wake up grapes!!! I know it's winter, but Mumma needs a glass of wine!!" she wrote.
3. The winner photo ruined by a bad photographer.
You find the perfect prop (in Armytage's case a GIANT bottle of wine), perfect the nonchalant pose... and some photographer ruins it with shaky hands.
4. The 'eyes shut' photo.
Because sometimes you don't need anyone else to ruin it for you.
"Can you believe I paid $5 (US!!) for this Frozen photo (for my niece & nephew) in which; a) I have my eyes closed..and b) Kristoff looks like @michaeljpell [Sunrise executive producer]," she wrote. (Post continues after gallery.)
5. Finding your home
Bonus points for finding a sign with your name on it (that one's going straight on the fridge).
6. The "risk anything for a good view" photo
When there's a view to be photographed, you do anything to capture it as Armytage did at the Big Sur.
"Rugged Route 1; with your 85 miles of winding, wild, windy roads. Your Elephant seal colonies. Your raging, grey Pacific Ocean. Nil phone reception. Chinese tourists. Mammoth redwoods, Australian eucalypts (?!) Many, many Mustangs," Armytage wrote.
