Need those wanderlust vibes as the colder weather sets in? Looking for inspiration from people living the dream, a little encouragement that you too can pursue your dreams? Well, these amazing Instagram influencers are exactly what you need right now.
There has been such an incredible increase in the number of images and general content surrounding the whole #VanLife. Its both saturating and inspiring our social media feeds in equal measure. However in any industry, particularly the travel and tourism industry, when you find an account that captures your imagination, you will find yourself; on the tube, in the taxi, lying in bed, maybe even at your desk, cheekily checking your phone to see what amazing and mesmerizing new posts they have shared. In the interest of helping you procrastinate, we have found some truly wonderful Instagram accounts that we want to encourage you to follow.
This literally beautiful influencer is setting the precedent for female travelers. Self described solo female traveler and it’s such a refreshing change of pace. You will spend half your time giggling at her frank and honest stories and the other half drooling over the awe inspiring views she sees on the daily.
Mirte is such a varied and exciting Instagrammer. From Spain to Switzerland, to Nepal and beyond, you will see Mirte and her partner Sebastian travelling around in their little van, exploring the great outdoors. The raw and unfiltered nature that Mirte shows us with her formidable photography skills is really breathtaking.
This sharing content page is amazing. Showing lovely couples sharing in the travel experience to solo travellers and really stunning scenery. The most eclectic mix of nationalities, destinations and stories to tell. A must follow page.
This charming Aussie duo is exploring the best of the Canadian outback! With the quintessential Aussie charm and the unadulterated, jagged Canadian nature, this IG has wintery snowy vibes all over. For wanderlust and mountain inspiration, this is the profile to watch!
Another immensely talented photographer, Rochelle is helping us experience America with a new perspective. From city to countryside and everything in between, you see the natural geography of the land and you will surely find yourself trying to catch your breath at the beauty!
Between Rivka & Nadine and the gorgeous dogs Ally, Peaches & Nip you have the cutest and most loveable family. If the wonderful nature that Rivka and Nadine capture plus the ridiculously cosy camper van aren’t enough then surely the dogs will have you cooing over your phone on the way to work.
Joss and Mady are amazing. They have captured exactly what the viewer wants to see the whole van life lifestyle. From the building and construction of the van to making plans and exploring, we are shown exactly what goes into the “behind the scenes”. “ ᴛᴡᴏ ᴛʀᴀᴠᴇʟʟᴇʀs ᴡʜᴏ ᴅᴏɴ’ᴛ ᴋɴᴏᴡ ᴡʜᴇʀᴇ ᴛʜᴇʏ’ʀᴇ ɢᴏɪɴɢ. ᴡᴇ’ʀᴇ ɪɴ ᴛʜᴇ ᴋɴᴏᴡ, ᴀʙᴏᴜᴛ ɴᴏᴛ ᴋɴᴏᴡɪɴɢ.”
Upoverthemountains is a super stylist and uber cool profile on IG. With irresistible photography and captivating stories behind the shots, artistically speaking this profile is a millennial dream. We also get to see a little of the UK which sadly doesn’t make the cut as much but to see the impressive English countryside documented this way makes you proud!
If you too think Winter is the most wonderful time of the year, whenever you see snow and frosted mountains- you feel all warm and fuzzy inside then this is the profile for you. From surfing to hiking and candid shots of the van, this profile never fails to keep you hooked!
Another one for the animal lovers. Traveling around in the van with the dogs is a dream come true for many. This Instagram is just lovely. Bryce is a real adventurer, so for the extreme sports and outdoor lovers, this profile is exciting, diverse and interesting. Again with the wintery vibes, @laducb captures the essence of #VanLife.
