11 Travel Instagrams That Will Give You Major Wanderlust

I am your typical post-study abroad student: I will never stop talking about it, and I’ve been bitten by the travel bug and can’t wait to find somewhere else to explore.  These 11 Instagram accounts provide much-needed travel inspiration, whether you’re planning a trip or just daydreaming about one!


1.  @natgeotravel

National Geographic is known for its stunning photographs and in-depth articles.  This Instagram account provides fantastic images of anywhere from deep in the South American rainforest to a bustling Middle Eastern market.  You may never have the type of access that Nat Geo photographers do, but you can at least drool.


2.  @nodestinations

According to their bio, couple Chris and Danika quit their jobs, sold everything and rented their house to travel the world. They have been jet-setting for over two years while doing freelance work in their respective fields to earn money.


3.  @twins_that_travel

Twins that Travel consists of Claire and Laura, two (you guessed it) twins who took their brand from a small travel Instagram account to an award-winning blog (They were commended by the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards last year).  They also blog for Huffington Post UK.

It’s hard to tell much about this mysterious account- it has a short bio and short captions.  However, whoever it belongs to is on a killer trip, and is managing to document it all with amazing pictures using only what looks like an iPhone camera.


5.  @travelandleisure

It’s the world’s leading travel magazine for a reason.  Their Instagram posts don’t disappoint either. They feature content from their own photographers as well as repost some from other travel accounts, making sure you don’t miss anything good! They also have an account focusing specifically on southeast Asia.


6.  @enjoyeurope
