The Best Travel Instagrammers

Life, Shot of the Week
March 15, 2013 3:15 pm

Here it is… We’ve been Instagramming since April 2011, and we’ve developed pretty strong feelings about our favorite traveling Instagrammers. We like to call this the “starter pack”—follow away!

Our requirements for inclusion in this list are simple. You won’t find an overload of tasteless food photography or the same image over and over again, but you will see each of these Instagrammers has a definitive photographic style and a passion for people, landmarks and culture.

Each is listed with their latest four pics below the name and description.



@theplanetd – A beautiful, classic travel account full of all the pictures you wish you came home with after a trip
