Sometimes you just need to pretend you’re somewhere else. Follow my favorite Instagram traveler accounts and live vicariously as they swim in exotic waters, eat unique cuisine and explore faraway lands.
Even when I’m having the best day ever it’s always a joy to pop onto my Instagram and explore the world through the eyes of my favorite Instagram travelers. These 20 accounts offer an escape into their world and ideas for your next adventure.
There are tons of major accounts out there that offer beautiful pictures of the world (& Universe!), like NatGeoTravel, LonelyPlanet and ExploreNASA; but for this post I offer you real people living in our world.
Remember that this is simply MY favorites. You might escape differently, so take this list with a grain of salt. If you like them, yay! If not, let me know your favorites in the comments. New discoveries are always welcome, let’s share!
My TOP 20 Instagram Travelers of 2017:
In case you missed it, that’s my Instagram! Shameless plug. If you love pretty places, random jokes and escaping into a picture then my account might be for you. Check it out! Love what you see? Follow me, share me, regram me and comment so I know you love it 🙂
JONAS.VESTERLUND – Do you appreciate an artistic eye? Jonas has unique photos that capture light, texture and shadow in beautiful ways.
INTREPIDINTROVERT – Hannah’s account is amazing. She loves people and places so much that it just oozes from her photos.
THATBACKPACKER – If sweeping vistas are your jam, then Audrey’s account will make you smile every day. She has tons of landscape photos and pops around the world regularly.
FINDINGHUES – 50 Shades of Amo! Amo loves color and finds it throughout the world.
WORLD_NATE – If travel blogging is your game then Nate’s photos will speak to you. He’s making his living as an Instagram traveler and loves helping others learn how to do the same.
EARTHWANDERESS – Joyful is the word I would use to describe Evelina’s account. She’s always got a smile on her face and a gorgeous spot to share with you.
BEMYTRAVELMUSE – I have 20 accounts listed here, in no particular order; but Kristin’s account is my favorite. Her photos are just stunning and I find myself wanting to visit each and every spot she posts about.
THEOCEANGYPSY – Meditation and oneness with the earth can be felt throughout this beautiful account.
VEGATRAVELS – Fun angles and cool architecture are all over this account. She also gets to a ton of different spots constantly, which keeps me addicted.
THELAZYADVENTURES – So many beaches! These photos are anything but lazy, and a lot amazing.
IAMALEXECHOLS – This cool cat not only travels a ton, but stays at ROAM residences and helps others to travel the world.
JOSEPHOWEN – If Instagram was having a competition for making a hipster account, I think Joe would win. His account has cool angles, varied lighting and eclectic subjects.
