16-Travel-Instagramers-to-Follow-in-2016

I, as I’m sure many of you are, am a huge fan of Instagram. I catch myself scrolling through stunning pictures of magical landscapes and places I’ve yet to discover on my own for far too long. It’s through Instagram that I learn of new places to visit, read the personalities of fellow travel bloggers, and most of all create so much wanderlust.

So because of the new year I have decided to put together a list of 16 travel Instagramers that I think are really worth a follow in 2016. And yes, I am aware that I am being super original by being inspired by the new year to write a post about who/something to follow.

If there’s anything that draws me to an Instagram account it’s always colour, high contrast, and pictures that make me what to be exactly where that person is. I’m showing accounts that I have just recently discovered, and some that I’ve been fans of for a while, some with low numbers of followers, and some with high. But believe me all of these accounts will leave you with extreme wanderlust…you have been warned.

This girl brings a richness to her pictures that just make them awe-mazing.

@hauteculturefashion

This girl will show you textiles and cultures from across the world. Whether you’re a fashion lover or not, her account is worth a glance.

Mountains, crystal clear water, and landscapes all make for a perfect Instagram account.

This girl knows how to work Instagram. Seriously stunning.

“To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries.” – Aldous Huxley This is true in so many ways. There is only so much you can learn about a country , its people, history and culture through a guide book or travel blog. These should only be inspirations to explore new grounds. So many travellers I came across this summer in Bosnia have told me before their trip, Bosnia & Herzegovina was not on their radar, but once visiting they fell in love with the towns, the people and the culture which bring them back again. Twenty years ago, my country suffered so much, the people are still healing and buildings are still being re built, but when you see the beauty and generosity of these people who went through so much you can't help feel at home. #mostar #bosnia #bosniaandherzegovina #starimost #travelnoir #travelandleisure #travel #mylifebyilsue #tripverse #iamtb

@veerabianca

This girls account is my Instagram goals. Two words come to mind when I see her account: chic and fabulous.

I hope you now feel inspired to travel the world, take some amazing pictures, or at least are leaving with a little bit of wanderlust. To end I’ll share one of my personal favourite Instagram pictures. And may 2016 bring you many new adventures, lot’s of smiles, and good company.
