At Travelbud, we believe everybody should travel to best fulfil their lifelong sense of wonder. With our programs we not only send people to teach abroad, but we also encourage them to engage in new experiences that they would not have otherwise encountered in their comfort zones.
Traveling does wonders to the human psyche, it expands your knowledge of different cultures and places the world has to offer, and within that helps you learn a lot more about yourself. We believe this is a valuable experience for anyone to fully grow as a person.
We have compiled a list, in no particular order, of the best travel profiles to follow on Instagram which will inspire you to even more rewarding travel experiences. Each one of these pages offers a unique escape to the world’s most interesting and beautiful places.

The Blonde Abroad
Salty hair days 🐠 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Using @herbalessences bio:renew Coconut Milk shampoo and conditioner in #BoraBora to hydrate my hair and leave it smelling like vanilla, white floral and coconut! With antioxidants, aloe and sea kelp, it helps combat dryness and breakage from salty and sunny days at sea. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #herbalessences
Ah, what is there not to like about Kiersten’s page? This once corporate financier-turned-world-traveler is an expert in photography and digital entrepreneurship. Her page stands on its own it terms of content and inspiration!
Pause The Moment
The sparkling white beaches of Isla Holbox are filled with tens of thousands of little seashells that wash up along the shoreline. I took two big handfuls of shells, tossed them in the air and it appeared as if it was snowing in paradise! ❄❄❄ p.s. The only type of snow I can tolerate these days is seashell snow! 😂

My life is a Travel movie
#MondayMotivation :: Take control of making your dreams come true. You’re the only one who can and cannot make them happen! 🤔💪🏽🧞♀️ . This gorgeous, incredibly intricate White Temple was the first stop on my @busabout.official Northern Thailand and Laos tour, and it immediately blew my mind!! The artist who created it completely restored an abandoned temple to this masterpiece, and he had many more mind-blowing artworks on site…plus he was THERE!! 🤯😻Talk about making your dreams a reality! Just like I do with seeing the world and experiencing different cultures! . I know a lot of people wonder how I got started with traveling and making money to do so (the short answer is a ton of freelance work from my laptop), so if you want some more detailed answers, check out my latest blog post, or swipe up on my Stories! 🤓💻💖 . #chiangrai #chiangraithailand #whitetemple #dreamsdontworkunlessyoudo #mondaymood #mylifesatravelmovie #alyssaramostravels #travelblogger #solotravel #selfietography #sonyalphasclub #sonya7iii

Was recently named Travel Photographer of the Year for the 4th time by the Central States Chapter of the @societyofamericantravelwriters This photo of Iguazu Falls was part of my winning portfolio.

It was almost impossible to compile this list without mentioning Gary Arndt. A 3X photographer of the Year winner, his images are simply impeccable. His page features picture-perfect moments he’s captured in every corner of the globe.
Muradosmann is another popular traveling page, with a staggering 4.4 million followers. We love his take on ultra realism photography. His page has an ongoing playful concept, where he captures himself holding his girlfriend’s hand in the most beautiful places in the world, and has since become a global trend.
Road trip time! @anna.everywhere & I are driving down the coast of California’s PCH this week, trying to find all the cool spots.

Let us know if you have any tips!
Expert Vagabond’s page is just stunning and flows in the most beautiful way. One thing that stands out to us, is the way he’s able to use natural light to capture a moment. He gives great insight and tips in every destination he visits.
Mark’s page is one of the best food meets travel pages around. He simply travels for food, as stated in his bio. He gives his followers a raw and engaging picture into the world’s most delicious and daring delicacies.
Living & working abroad
If you’re thinking of making travel a lifestyle, rather than just a once a year type of thing, one of the best ways to do this is through teaching, volunteering or interning abroad. We have a range of programs throughout Asia and Latin America (and soon to be Europe as well!) to help you live abroad and make incredible travel memories in your daily life. Check our website for more or get in touch with our enrolments team to chat about your options.
