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.

Samuel is a Finnish photographer residing in Norway, his photography is focused on landscapes and the outdoors. He’s such a pro at showcasing nature in its most authentic best and brings it to life as we watch it on our screens! We love his page, definitely one not to miss!

The Blonde Abroad

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

You can often feel worse about your life when reading through travel blogs, with Ryan’s page, that’s definitely not the case! Through his fabulous take on seizing the moment in pictures, he invites you to his world of fun and relaxing travel destinations. This is a definite must follow page!

My life is a Travel movie

Alyssa, from the US, is a self-proclaimed selfietographer and you can see why she has racked up over 200k in followers, her posts are absolutely stunning! We especially love the photos she posts of her at exotic beaches around the world.

Drew Binsky

The reason we love Drew’s page is because he looks like you and I – an ordinary person! His page portrays authentic travel at the highest level. You can see that he really engages with local people in every destination he goes to. He often posts short videos on specific subjects as well, which are fun but also very informative.


Dani’s page is really exciting, we love how you never know where she’s gonna be next and what she’ll post! When going through her page, you get a sense of classic travelling with a touch of a modern hipster vibe.

Everything Everywhere

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.

Murad Osmannn

My favorite one 🙂 ….#followmeto Myanmar with my love @natalyosmann

A post shared by MURAD OSMANN (@muradosmann) on

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.

Expert Vagabond

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.
