Who you should follow on Instagram. 10 amazing travel accounts

Instagram is a great visual travel guide, giving you ideas for your next trip and helping you to plan it. It’s also a great way to see and discover new places around the world, which is one of the reasons why I’m on it most of the time! While it’s not practical for most of us to hop on a plane and fly away whenever we please, searching through Instagram is the next best thing.

Are you sitting at your office desk, wishing you could get away? Well, I can’t do anything about that (sorry!) but I do have a list of 10 travel Instagram accounts that’ll make you feel like you’re on that dream holiday right now!
