5 Fab Travel Instagrammers to Follow

Travel the world from your desk!

We can’t all travel the world and hang out in exotic locations for a living. *Sigh* Some of us have to hold down the fort and run the world from our office cubicles. But we can always dream about our next 15 days of leave. And there’s nothing like a little armchair travel when you’re in need of some inspiration. Here, five of our favourite travel bloggers to live vicariously through.

1. Kiersten Rich – The Blonde Abroad

California babe Kiersten has been travelling full-time since she quit her job in corporate finance not too long ago. These days she can be found mostly in a bikini, making her way around the globe, taking breathtaking pictures along the way. PS: she recently moved to Cape Town, having fallen in love with South Africa after visiting over 50 countries around the world!

2. Nicola Easterby – Polkadot Passport

Another moment I thought I would share from 2016 was when I revisited Venice. This photo may encapsulate a romantic moment floating down the Venetian waterways, but the reality wasn’t quite as idyllic. I was in Venice as part of a manic two-week photoshoot for a tour company with a packed out itinerary of 14 hour days, nights spent editing instead of sleeping, jumping around 7 different countries. In this moment, I was sitting in a gondola with six people I just met, trying desperately to get half-decent photo in the mid-day sun. Don’t get me wrong, I adore my job and am so blessed to get to visit so many beautiful places. Wouldn’t trade it for the world. But moments like this can definitely make it look more glamorous than it actually is ?

Each of Rosie’s IG pictures is more beautiful than the last. Her fabulous hair and legs for days set against the backdrop of azure Mediterranean waters have us crippled with jealousy, but following along as she island-hops is well worth the ride.

While she’s not strictly a ‘travel blogger’, Californian Bri Emery’s own travels make her already dreamy IG account even more fun to follow. She has a wardrobe to die for and an eye for pretty things, which she shares frequently on her account.
