Instagram has become a visual library of travel inspiration with amateur and professional photographers documenting their adventures from all corners of the world. I love nothing more than scrolling through images every day to see where people have been, what they’ve experienced and how they’ve captured a destination.
Most of the time it ends in a case of ‘I wish I was there’.
Last month I put out the call on Instagram looking to feature travel themed accounts and I was overwhelmed by the response. From Easter Island to Malta, Dubai to Japan…I discovered some great accounts and am very excited to share them with you all.
Some of the accounts below have a lot of followers, others not so many but numbers mean nothing when it comes to inspiring content and I wanted to share real accounts. Each account featured is all about showcasing life on the road (or boat in some cases) and general wanderlustworthy fun on nearly every continent. I’ve heard where some of them are heading next too and it’s going to be great to follow along on their journey!
A big congratulations to everyone featured below…take a peek and follow their adventures as they Instagram their way around the world…
