Five of my faves - Instagram Wanderlusters

From the outrageously funny to the visually sublime!...

These are my favourite Insta feeds that inspire me to just chuck it all in and GO! ..... or at least live on vicariously through others.  Read on and see if you can resist!

1)  Adrien & Andrew McDermott - @travellingbetches and her main man @heyheyandrew

As @heyheyandrew says ... "Medina, Marrakech, Morocco - Ddddddayummm, have you ever seen so many things in one picture? No, not unless it's blades of grass, or smart smarts in my head. This guy's inventory management is on another level. For some reason he seems unconcerned about theft (how would he even know??). But anyways, I need to up my sketchiness factor, I think my kind eyes are betraying Adrienne's haggling skills. If you can guess what @travelingbetches bought here, I'll give you 11 hugs. Front to front, hips touching, but no looking, you creep. Bye."
And if you have a bit more time, check out their blog = = gob-smacking sometimes, but always a major giggle-fest.  These are two USA citz who are really getting out beyond Texas.  Free spirits on the prowl.  


2)  Conde Nast Traveller Magazine - @condenasttraveller 


As @condenasttraveller says ... "The entrance to Suján Rajmahal Palace in #Jaipur, #Rajasthan's beautiful Pink City. After its spectacular spruce-up recently, this pristine palace is now the most sprightly hotel in #India."

Conde Nast Mag hits all the high spots, temperature zones and landscapes of the world.  You can create a bucket list for 2 lifetimes in 10 easy minutes of browsing.  And if you can't actually get away, you can at least, live vicariously through this feed.


3) @the_vista

@the_vista says ..."Did you know that we have a wanderlust guide to Tasmania - as well as our guides on Bondi, Byron & Bali?  Follow the link in today's bio to download any of our guides for free. We love making beautiful things for you ✨"

So guides!!  Saving you the trouble, time and expense of mistakes on holidays.  And I love that these are small, independent and thoughtfully put together.

4) @eighteenthousandislands 

Chris & Merv, explore their family's heritage through their beautiful food explorations and Indonesia's eighteen thousand islands.  That's a lot of exploring and I don't think they've really scratched the surface yet.  Based in Melbourne, they have an online store too which sells the most fabulous-looking sauces like Satay and Kecap Manis.  YUMSTER! - check it!  Even better, they have the cutest little bubster (maybe more actually - can't quite figure it out) who peppers the feed with their presence.

"Morning market always bustling with energy. These offerings are the way that every Balinese starts the day. You give thanks to the gods for everything around you as well as what's to come."


"Sometimes the best food is street food! Badung market. #streetfood"


5) Katie Aun - @katiekk2

This amazing woman really gets around.  From Papua New Guinea to the Sudan, strong on portraits and fascinated by the peoples of the world, her feed touches the untouched places of the world and touches off a keen sense of wanderlust in me.

Divine inspiration for your own travel ambitions!!  Get out there!!
With a smile,
