Why travel if you can't share your experiences with others? I once read an article where the reason travel accounts are so popular is because most of us don't have time to travel as much as the professional travelers (paid to travel photographers, writers, bloggers, etc) because of work and personal commitments -- that is why we follow those accounts and daydream about our next adventures.
Instagram is the perfect platform to provide travel inspirations and even introduce you to new places you wouldn't think of to travel to. Here's the list of my favorite travel accounts you must follow today. Warning, you'll get some serious #wanderlust after reading.
1. Travel + Leisure
We've all heard of the magazine. They truly feature beautiful destinations through insanely stunning visuals.
2. New York | Travel Community
This page amalgamates photos taken by a wide range of talented photographers and creatives. Each photo tags the person's account which is a great way to discover amazing photography profiles. They only feature New York but who doesn't love New York?
3. Travel Alberta
Who knew Alberta, Canada is a must-visit?! Their page also features photos taken by others. I've put Alberta on my travel bucket list. You should too.
4. Nature Geography
Nature Geography is everything! They post a combination of nature & gorgeous animals. You need to see the koala belly rub video in this account! Need I say more?
5. Travel | Nature | Vacation
The photos on this page are luxurious and stunning. You can tell that some are photoshopped, but who cares? The creativity, imagination and color edits make it dreamier. I'm in love!
6. Epic Travels
The name says it all. It's like looking at a photo book of breathtaking destinations around the globe. Definitely, travel goals.
If you haven't seen Earthpix on Instagram, you need to. It's like the best moments on Earth luckily and timely captured by trained eyes. Their feed aimed to please!
8. Travel Awesome
Travel Awesome is Awesome! Their feed is crazy colorful. They feature the sickest shots of unforgettable paradises around the world.
9. Futuristic Nature Photography
Just like the account name, it feels like you are in the future. If you want to travel to unique destinations with "instagrammable" views, you should definitely check them out!
10. Destination Chaser
Their feed is dreamy, bright and refreshing. Many travel accounts use special effects and filters. Destination Chaser opted for natural captures and they are just simply beautiful.
