If you're constantly fretting over your boring nine-to-five job or inconsolably worrying about the impending year-end appraisals, knowing about this 91-year-old travel freak might help.

While poring over the several Instagram posts earlier today, we ran into Baba Lena. And trust us, we can't stop admiring her posts. So much so that they're inspiring us to pack our bags and travel to exotic destinations.

Lena's Instagram profile, which describes her as a "91-year-old granny and traveller from Siberia, Russia", is followed by over 72k people. And as we speak, the followers are on the rise. She has visited some of the most beautiful countries in the world and is surely setting new travel goals for millennials. So you know she's not your regular granny.

Reportedly, Lena started travelling at the age of 83 and uses her pension to fund her getaways. 

Just take a cursory look at her Insta profile – you'll find her chilling at a beach, digging into a delicious platter or chilling with travellers even younger.

While she is enjoying her life after retirement, we can't stop admiring these travel posts from her account:
