Long gone are the days that we’d go on holiday armed with several disposable cameras to snap photos of our adventures. With most phones now having decent cameras it tends to be a case of point, shoot and upload to Instagram to instantly share with your friends and family!
Where most use it as a day to day photo sharing app, many have gone above and beyond and now use it show us the incredible travels they’re going on (talk about rubbing our noses in it). Here at www.CRUISE.co.uk we’ve hand picked our favourite 12 travel Instagram accounts that are guaranteed to fill you with wanderlust.
Read on to find out all about the sailor dog that kayaks around the world and the woman that travels the world completing her bucket list… Warning – you may want to book a holiday at the end of this article!
Girl Eat World
Girl Eat World follows Melissa, a girl who combines her love of food and travelling to bring us this incredibly engaging account. It all started off with her hatred of selfies and feeling far too awkward to ask strangers to take a photo of her, so she started taking photos of her food instead… The result? Hello Kitty marshmallows on the streets of Japan, crocodile burgers in Australia and so much more!
I was just scrolling through my VSCO feed and realized that… I forgot to post a ton of #GirlEatWorld from Kyoto ??! ? This is the cutest marshmallow from the Hello Kitty cafe @op.118 and I randomly stumbled into while walking around Ninenzaka in Kyoto. We thought this is a mandatory photo since my nails matched ????. Oh sweet memories… I will never get bored of Japan. —- I will be writing on the blog about Japan eats very soon. Follow me on facebook.com/GirlEatWorld for blog updates! — #TooCuteToEat #ShotOniPhone6sPlus #HelloKitty #HelloKittyLover #eeeeeats
World Of Wanderlust
One day this 24-year-old world traveller just decided she wanted to see more of the world, so she booked a one-way ticket to London and her feet haven’t touched the ground since. She takes the most inspiring photos that’ll have you packing your bags and flying off around the world. We know we want to!
#TravelMeans to enjoy every single step of every single day and appreciate the journey that leads to the destination. Here I was in Cesky Krumlov on my year-long solo adventure around the world, finding my feet and finding myself. Each day I chipped away at being reliant on others for happiness and found the only source for happiness is to know, accept and love yourself. What does travel mean to you? Thanks to @janbala for starting this conversation. ❤️✨

Known far and wide for his #followmeto project where he ‘follows’ his model girlfriend around the world, from a festival in Varanasi to the icy terrain of Lake Baikal, it really seems like this pair have seen it all. The images have inspired thousands and once you see them you’ll see why; we can scarcely believe these photos are real!
New Yorker Sam Horine specialises in abandoned and forgotten places in his home of New York. He captures incredible images of uninhabited locations and pours love into places that would otherwise be forgotten. His account has an overall peaceful vibe with pictures of quiet scenic roads, empty beaches and we’re loving it.

This Wild Idea
This account is essential for anyone who’s planning a road trip to the USA, or are just a huge dog lover. Why?

3 years ago he quit his job to travel the world in a Kayak, then 2 years ago something happened that’d change his life forever.

Since then she’s been named his sailor dog and they go on adventures all around the world together. Can we come too?
