7 Instagram accounts to fall in love with
Spring has sprung and there’s just one thing on our minds: where are we next going on holiday? Time to turn to the internet for the ultimate in travel inspiration. Whatever your wish list or bank balance, these accounts will take you on an amazing journey…
FOR FILM FANS
Love movies? Love travelling? You need this account in your life. Blogger and film fan Andrea David had the clever idea to take her love of location-hunting to the next level: taking a photo of a classic TV or movie scene in the very spot it was filmed, merging fantasy with real life. Her account is a meeting place for film geeks around the world and is packed with ideas for your next itinerary.
FOR UK ADVENTURES
We love twins Claire and Laura’s warm and friendly travel blog for so many reasons but particularly the way they champion UK road trips and affordable ‘micro-adventures’. Essential browsing if (like them) you’re terrified of flying or just want to squeeze joy and excitement from every single weekend closer to home.
Think you can’t go travelling with a new baby? Think again. Karen Edwards is a London mum using her maternity leave to pack in as many adventures as possible with her husband, daughter and baby Quinn. Karen, a full time nurse, travels on a realistic budget and is passionate about inspiring other parents. “Your travel days don’t have to be over,” she says, “It’s all about incorporating your little person into your way of life.”

FOR PURE PHOTO JOY
For Mother Nature at her finest, it doesn’t get better than @earthpix, a simply stunning collection of landscapes and wildlife that will have you scrolling in wonder (and reaching for your passport). There’s plenty of location inspo here for even the most jaded traveller (Eltz Castle in Germany? Wow) and a big dose of cute baby animals for good measure. Find new photographers to follow here too – like Sean Scott, whose stunning turtle shot we love
FOR SOLO TRAVELLERS
Flora is on a one-woman mission to explore as much of the world as possible through volunteer placements and meaningful connections. Think brilliant stories and poetry rather than hotel reviews and show-off selfies. We love following Flora’s highs and lows and she talks us through everything from her fear of heights and shyness to falling in love and coping with grief.
If you dream of leaving your day job and running off into the sunset with your S.O., get inspired by Selena and Jacob, the husband and wife team who did just that. What started out as a personal blog to keep in touch with family has turned into a gorgeous blend of photography, next-level date nights and hefty travel guides.
FOR OCEAN LOVERS
Easkey Britton is an Irish national surfing champion, marine scientist, passionate environmentalist and inspirational public speaker. Oh, and she also takes mighty fine pics of the ocean. Her beautiful IG grid is a love letter to big waves and big skies around the globe. She’ll also get you thinking about travel and surfing as a force for good in the world. It’s quite a ride.
