As 2017 comes to a close and 2018 begins we are presented with a whole new year to inspire others and to be inspired ourselves…on instagram.

Instagram…’insta’, for those instant moments we wish to share with the world, the ‘where am I now’s’. Or for some the insta might as well be inspo…for inspiration, the ‘where could I be’s’. Considering travel, we use instagram for a multitude of inspirational facts. We use it to be inspired by places, to see places we wish to travel and to create new dream destinations for ourselves. We use it to share with others our accomplishments, to show we made it somewhere breath taking and what we are doing there. We use it to inspire our own photography; for those who are interested in modelling, we learn how to pose, and for those of us who are keen to learn photography, we use it to learn how to frame and edit.

Instagram is full of inspiration, its a corner of the internet where we can go to dream, especially when we are dreaming of travel.

…and so, I present to you a list of 18 travel instagrammers to follow in 2018 who will inspire you to travel the world.

18 Travel Instagrammers to follow in 2018

1. Sophieannenadeau

Crystal clear photos set in a dreamy pink hue of architecture and cities world wide. Her photos will make you want, want, want to dress nicely and take cool city photos.


2. Every Steph

Her shot’s just make you feel luxurious by looking at them. Adventurous destinations with a touch of luxury, my favourite way to live.


3. Monkey.Inc

Colourful energetic photo’s of adventurous destinations around the world. Her account really portrays how much fun she is having while living the hostel jumping traveling lifestyle.


4. WalkabootTravel

Obviously…Bubbly photos inspiring remote adventure travel. Taking you everywhere you would not think of going and inspiring you to put that destination on your list.


5. TravelFREAK

Crisp and beautiful travel photos that not only inspire the destination but also the photographer. A great place to get inspiration for the technical side of photography.

When you find a converted Airstream and the sky is lighting up behind you, there's only one thing left to do—strike a pose! 🕺🌴 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Top down, loud tunes and tan skin—I'm checking "Califonia sun" off from my #SixWordItinerary. The oily skin, however, is half sunblock and half because I've hardly showered in four days (just be glad you can't smell me through this photo). A California road trip is definitely one for the books! ☀️ 🚘 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ I used to be a die-hard backpacker (and kind of always will be!), but different bags serve different purposes. It wouldn't make sense to bring a rucksack on a trip like this 🎒 My trusty 20" Wavebreaker from @AmTourister has certainly served me well this week! #FunNeverGetsOld #ad

Is there anything better than finding a really unique and awesome bookstore? * Liberia Acqua Alta in Venice is one of the coolest bookshops we've been to for awhile: not only can you climb this staircase made entirely out of books (!!!) and be rewarded with views of one of Venice's canals, the bookstore also stores its books in unique ways: in bathtubs, rowboats, and a gondola. * Why? Because when the "acqua alta" (high water) comes to Venice every year, the bookstore floods… and because of the unique storage, the books, rather than get destroyed, float. Since we visited in November, we saw a little bit of the acqua alta–one small section of the bookstore had started to take on a tiny bit of water. * If you're a bookworm like us, this shop is a must see while in Venice! * * * * #venice #veniceitaly #venezia #italy_photolovers #italytravel #ig_venice #ig_italy #iloveitaly #italyiloveyou #italygram #italy_vacations #ig_europe #bookworm #bookstore #booklover #readingaddict #bookaddict #thetravelwomen #thatauthenticfeeling #sheisnotlost #wearetravelgirls #gltlove #girlslovetravel #dametraveler #mytinyatlas #traveldeeper #travelstoke #openmyworld #instapassport #finditliveit

An instagram to make you feel as if you are in a traveling dream or movie. Adventurous and Luxurious.

8. I_am_Aileen

I am obsessed with an instagram that looks good as a grid and this one nails it. Plus she’s been swimming in antarctica in a fly bikini so if you aren’t inspired by her, you’re crazy.

9. Getting Stamped

Can I just say #goals. Watching this amazing couple explore the world together will inspire relationship goals around the world. If only I was someones travel muse.

Do you ever see photo’s of someone and think ‘yea…they are cooler than me’…because that’s what is happening here. Amazing style, cool photos, an a hint of ‘folk magazine’.

Good morning America! 🇺🇸 I want to give you a glimpse of some of the best things you can experience on a trip to Ukraine. Like, for example, this one in the picture. This big pot is called “chan” and it is a typical “spa” activity in the Carpathian Mountains. . . The whole procedure consists of basically being boiled in a pot (just like hell, don’t you think ? 👹😄). But it’s more pleasant than it sounds! . After relaxation in hot water often scented with fresh pines, you dip in the cold outdoor stream and then quickly jump back into chan. .and what can be better than relaxing with a view over the mountains? . . This and much more can be found in my guidebook “Insane Ukraine”, follow the active link in bio to find out more! . #insane_ukraine #travel_monkeyukraine

Another amazing location I visited in Bali 🇮🇩 is the Hidden Canyon!⠀ ⠀ We got there before 9 am and had the place to ourselves 🙌🏽- which is a blessing because it would NOT be as nice to have people in this shot😂.⠀ ⠀ The water 💦 level was low during our visit, so we didn't get to see the third canyon in all its glory.⠀ ⠀ Would you want to see this place for yourself?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #laughtraveleat #beautifuldestinations #theglobewanderer #yoursoulisyourcompass #mybudgettravel #sharetravelpics #amazing_picture #travelingourplanet #epictravelpage #destinosesonhos #travilin #tv_travel #amazing_places_to_visit #worldtravelpics #livetravelchannel #dfodorsonthego #travelstoke #travelingourplanet #intravelist #worldtravelguide
