We’re all dreaming about our next escape right now and if it’s wanderlust you’re looking for, there’s no better place than Instagram to virtually travel the world 

Here are seven of the dreamiest travel accounts out there to reignite your passion for travel – and maybe inspire your first post-lockdown trip.


Why we love it: In 2016, Selena Taylor quit her full-time job in Los Angeles to pursue her lifelong dream of living in Europe – and provide the rest of us with some serious travel eye-candy via Instagram.

Together with her boyfriend Jacob, she embarked on a three-month road trip through the Balkans before relocating to Amsterdam, creating ‘Find Us Lost’ as a way to document their adventures. A lust-worthy curation of the stunning sights of the world, the account features weekend getaways, budget-friendly trips, unknown destinations, and once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

It makes us want to book a ticket to: Europe, for its sky-high mountains and history-rich destinations.


Why we love it: From emerald-green rice terraces in Bali to the pristine beaches of Hawaii and the crowded streets of Seoul, Lauren Bullen induces wanderlust with every destination she visits with her boyfriend, Jack Morris (of @DoYouTravel fame).

The couple’s chocolate labradoodle, Oreo, is also a firm fixture in the feed, living his best life under the Balinese sun. Beware, you might just want to book a vacation (and buy a pup) after seeing her out-of-this-world imagery.

It makes us want to book a ticket to: Bali, for its Instagram-perfect infinity pools and rice terraces.


Why we love it: This one’s for the foodies. Who said a travel account has to feature pink lakes, hot air balloon rides and icy glaciers? Take one look at Melissa Hie’s feed and you’ll want to take a foodie vacation immediately.

On a solo trip through Europe, Melissa discovered a love for gastronomy as she ate her way across the continent. Since she didn’t have anyone to share them with, she photographed the dishes against incredible European backdrops – and the rest is history. Get hangry over chai from Rajasthan, eclairs from Paris and pork buns from Taipei.

It makes us want to book a ticket to: China, for its Hello Kitty dumplings and mooncakes.


Why we love it: This is dreamy travel content at its best. Germany-based luxury travel creator Alex can truly transport you through his expertly curated feed, taking you from the glittering lights of Vegas to the plains of Africa.

But it’s really his postcard-perfect photographs of uber-luxurious resorts in the Maldives will make you green with envy. Even if you aren’t a beach person, his breathtaking tropical imagery of Thailand and Bora Bora might just turn the tide.
