6 amazing travel accounts to follow on Instagram

I always say, shared joy is a doubled joy. Maybe that’s why I like Instagram so much, I love following the small moments people enjoy and share of their everyday life, and I love seeing the big moments and incredible experiences shared how they look for the person through the lens. Above all, I love connecting with people, and discovering the world through Instagram photos.

Today I would like to feature 6 amazing travelers on Instagram who inspire me. I am thankful that they all found me first – and they were inspired to use the #skimbaco hashtag and that’s how I met all of them! In all honesty, the collective #skimbaco photo stream is my favorite thing on Instagram. You can always find the latest tagged photos on the side of this website and at SkimbacoLifestyle.com/instagram. I hope YOU will join these amazing 6 Instagrammers and me and share your photos of living life to the fullest – where ever in the world you may be.

If you have the privilege already to know many of these six Instagrammers, you are lucky. If not, it is my honor to introduce them for you.

This multicultural and multilingual family travels around the world, and the photos are a mix of happy family snapshots, landscapes and cultural sights. Beautiful professional photos of a picture perfect family.

Justin has been using Instagram since the beginning of the year, but his photos are anything but novice. He is a traveler, writer, archaeologist and above all a world citizen whose pictures in Asia have captivated me.

Blessings By FAD is run by France Malvar & Ami Guibone, who also sell handmade bags at Etsy with the same name, and 5% of profits go to those in need. Their bags travel around the world on their Instagram account, but it’s much more than a promotional business Instagram account. The photos take us to beautiful places and I always get a serene feeling from Blessings by FAD.

Synke takes us around Berlin and around the world. She captures small things that bring joy, and moments of living life to the fullest. This summer I loved traveling to Southern Italy through her photos.

Jason is also a professional photographer, and his professional work is high caliber. However, it’s his travel photos from India that take my breath away.

6. nomadicnewlyweds

Follow http://instagram.com/nomadicnewlyweds

Last but not the least… my absolute the favorite newer Instagram friend is the NomadicNewlyweds. I think the handle says it all, their photos are a testament of love for each others, and love for global exploration. Their photos give hope for happy ever afters, and they make you want to have a honeymoon with your spouse immediately (or second or thirds honeymoon).

I hope you already read my book about Instagram (get it for free, just sign up on the bottom of this post) and you will find a few chapters just dedicated to great people to follow on Instagram. Of course – get connected with me as well as Skimbaco.

My friend Nienke, The Travel Tester, recently also created some great Instagram lists of 20 top Instagrammers to follow, and 20 up and coming Instagram accounts to follow, and there are some great people and photographers on both lists. Many of the people in the lists are also travel bloggers.

Leave in the comments who are your favorite people to follow on Instagram!
