I’m always wondering who to follow on Instagram.
I’m obsessed and I don’t know exactly how it happened. I think I just find joy in perusing the pictures I find. It is no pressure, no holds barred pure awesomeness.
I’ve also been finding myself hoping for certain people to update a little more, just so I can live a little more vicariously.
So I thought I would pick a few of my favorite profiles that I highly suggest following (besides me, OverYonderlust!). They provide me with my daily travel inspiration and when I’m at home (like now). They feed my fat eyeballs with travel food via the gazillion apple products strewn around my house.
So I bring you a rounded top 10 list of who to follow on Instagram in no particular order (Seriously, I can’t rank these guys. They are amazeballs.) and not including the big wigs like Lonely Planet or Nat Geo. If you’re not following them already, get on in it.
Laurence from Finding the Universe not only has wit but his photography blows my mind. His Instragram profile showcases the best of the best and I love
stalking peeking at his life online. His usage of color really hits home with how I see things around the world.
Everyone knows this savvy iPhoneographer but just incase you don’t have her on your Instagram list, I would do yourself a favor and do it now. She is constantly surprising me with what you can do with an iPhone and I learn something new every time I pick her brain.
These guys have been a powerhouse in the travel blogging world and their Instagram photos show it. They are beautiful, detailed, and exotic. I always look forward to their updates. Don’t be confused with their other profile they that apparently showcases things from Trader Joes?
They can even make Wisconsin look beautiful (yes, I just said that). Hell, I’ve even considered visiting because of their most recent set of pictures. Great job guys! Feast your eyes on some serenity brought to you by Pete and Dalene.
Turtle! Turtle! Turtle! (I don’t know but it just comes out of my mouth when Michael Turtle is brought up in conversations.) The one thing I will give Michael is that he has the most varied Instagram profile that I follow. You never know what you’re going to get next… and I love it. Also, pay attention to his use of natural lighting – it makes everything seem so ethereal and beautiful.
Bethany has been one of my photography mentors since I stepped foot in the travel blogosphere. You can tell that she is quite a force to be reckoned with as she is a great iPhoneographer as well as producing beautiful pictures from her DSLR. She is another awesome lady that I love asking advice from!
I swear Nellie and Alberto are always on the move because they are always filling my Instagram feed with awe and wonder. I can’t get enough of their pictures from their recent Finland trip. They give me a serious case of itchy feet and we just got back home less than a month ago!
I’ve been following this guy for quite some time (off of Instagram) so you can imagine my delight when I followed him on Instagram. Dustin has such an amazing eye for photography and is always bringing new angles of old things to the table. I’m always interested and inspired.
I do appreciate her tongue in cheek approach to Instagram (check out her most recent bakery picture). Cheeky lady! But really, the colors and angles she uses in her pictures really give a sense of movement. I’m always looking to her for something new and refreshing as she is always one step ahead of the curve.
Normally I get a little peeved with the amount of food people post on their Instagram feeds (sorry guys, I don’t care about what you had for breakfast), but Jodi is definitely a leader when it comes to full frontal food fantasies. 😛 I’m always hungry while looking through her feed (which is killer for the diet) and I’ll continue to indulge in everything she eats online.
Keep in mind that this is only a little peek into who you can follow online to get your travel fix. There are quite a few talented guys and gals out there and if I missed any that you find inspiring, please tell me who is on your “who to follow on Instagram” list. I’m always looking for something new!
