10 Travel Instagram Feeds to Follow and Swoon Over


To say I’ve been afflicted with the travel bug in my time would be a lie – I’ve got a full blown case of travel-itis with no cure in sight. My hunger for travel often takes a precedence over my actual hunger pains (grocery shopping…what’s that?) and if my pup were allowed to travel along with me around the world, you better believe I’d live the life of a full-fledged nomad. But since this daydream is just that, I often find myself turning to Instagram for a heavy dose of travel-lusting relief/major travel jealousy all at once. So if you are looking for some travel inspiration, incredible eye candy, or just a quick escape from the work week, take a peek at these epic, traveling Instagrammers. – Stephanie

    I love following asherworldturns on instagram! She’s been traveling the world for the last 2 years and posting all along the way. Right now she’s in Africa.

    I love the ‘follow me to’ hashtag! So much fun. And beautiful photos.

    I kind of want to follow all of these accounts, but also think it will be dangerous as it will give me the travel bug and I’ll end up booking flights to all sorts of places!

The latter, this couple travels all over the world and not only provides a unique perspective, but it’s also quite romantic…
