So often we find ourselves wishing we could travel more, but then all the “butts” and “ifs” get in our way. “I don’t have the time”, “I don’t have the money”, “I have a career and bills to worry about”… If this sounds familiar, here are 12 amazing travelers on Instagram that will help you to get out of your Fun Life Crisis, leave all of your excuses behind and travel the world more. Sometimes we just need a little extra inspiration from those who are doing it to show us that anything is possible. Because if they can do it, what is stopping you?
@travisburkephotography left his job with $81 dollars in his pocket to travel the world in his van. His adventure photos have inspired many other people to follow in his footsteps and to get outdoors more. Traveling together with @chelseakauai they explore everything outdoors from chasing waterfalls in Oregon to rock climbing in Utah and cliff diving in Tahiti.
@hilvees and @eljackson
@hilvees and @eljackson are the cutest “beach blonde” travel couple from Norway. Their travel life is like a happy, adorable fairytale movie. They are hip, they are cool, they are funny…basically, they are the Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively of Instagram.
@theblondeabroad is a total beach babe with an amazing style who travels around the world solo. 5 years ago Kiersten left her finance career behind to travel full time and has not looked back since. Her account is totally kickass and shows you that you can be single and still have fun exploring the world.
@jamesrelfdyer is a 19-year-old who is traveling around the world nonstop. His travel photos are vibrant, colorful and pull you into that moment. He’s the epitome of what it means to be young, careless and free. Oh, and did I mention that he has the coolest job on Earth working for @beautifuldestinations while traveling the world? Yea, life can be pretty great.
From island life to tropical beaches @doyoutravel and @gypsea_lust are living the ultimate dream. Most of the time you can find them climbing palm trees, chilling on a beach, or drinking coconuts, enjoying the gypsy life to the max.
You don’t always have to leave it all behind to travel the world. @tiffpenguin is a full-time dentist by day and a dedicated weekend-warrior, balancing both worlds and making the best of it. The outdoors is the perfect escape from the 9-5 and she is surely taking a full advantage of it.
Who would be a better travel companion than the adorable @loki_the_wolfdog? Along with his dad, this beautiful fluffball explores the outdoors and brings you along on their adventures.
“The mountains are calling and I must go” quote best describes @vagabondhearts’ Instagram travel account. With her photos, she will take you exploring the mountain peaks, alpine lakes and the rest of the beautiful adventure land that is Canada.
Have you ever wondered if you can you eat your way around the world? You bet you can! And @girleatworld is here to show us how it’s done for the serious travel foodies out there.
For dreamy and uplifting outdoors travel @reneeroaming tops the cake. Her photos are filled with soft light, pastel colors, and beautiful settings. If her photos don’t make you want to drop everything to travel the world, we are not sure what would.
So what are you waiting for?
Traveling and exploring the world can be a life changing experience. Whether you are thinking of leaving it all behind to travel the world full-time or just explore more on the weekends, we hope these Instagrammers will inspire you to take those first steps. So set your remote control aside, grab a friend and head out for an adventure!
