Top 9 Inspiring Female Travel Instagrammers to Follow

We love Instagram so much! We believe that it’s a perfect place to share travel stories, memories and fun moments from your travels and vacations.

We decided to share the list of our favorite female travel bloggers who are active on Instagram in a special way. We asked each of them three questions in order to give you some inspiration. Enjoy!

Number #1

Yvonne, Just Travelous

What are your travel plans for the rest of 2015?
2015 is the year of the unplanned plan, so I’m not 100% sure where my travels will take me to during the next few months. But some trips are already planned and I’m pretty excited to go to Burning Man (again!), Quito (for the first time) and there’s a good chance that I will travel to Cuba (again) and Tajikistan (for the first time).

Who are your favorite female travel bloggers/Instagrammers?
Kristin Addis from bemytravelmuse.com – I’ve met her in 2012 in Chiang Mai, Thailand, and we’re friends ever since and been on many great adventures together.

Do you have any tips on how to build a great Instagram travel portfolio?
I think the most important thing is to find your own style and stay true to this. My Instagram stream mainly consists of landscape pictures with a faded, bleached look.

Number #2

What are your travel plans for the rest of 2015?
Nothing is set in stone yet but I’m looking at taking a road trip on the West Coast of the US with my friend, possibly visit Thailand for the first time, and exploring more of Melbourne and surrounding Victoria.

Who are your favorite female travel bloggers/Instagrammers?
My friend Marie Eve has a beautiful iPhone only Instagram at @mevallieres filled with lots of architecture, travel, and coffee! Emma from @EmmaKateCo shows off my hometown (Adelaide), her designs and the world beautifully. For the foodies, @GirlEatWorld is a Singaporean foodie who shares her travels using food shots… and there’s a lot of ice cream!

Do you have any tips on how to build a great Instagram travel portfolio?
Share photos of things you love and are passionate about. Sure, it’s nice to have hundreds or thousands of followers, but in the end, Instagram’s about collecting a collection of images that express you. An instantaneous photo album, viewable by others.

Number #3

Stephanie, Travel Break

Blog: www.travel-break.net

What are your travel plans for the rest of 2015?
For 2015, I will continue to travel solo and meet people through social media. Up next is Guatemala, Croatia, Slovenia, and Italy.

Who are your favorite female travel bloggers/Instagrammers?
Some women on Instagram who inspire me are Emily Thomas @Emitoms, Jewels Zee @JewelsZee, Lauren Bath @LaurenEpBath, Sylvia @Goldie_Berlin, Sezgi @SezgiOlgac, and Ciler @AudioSoup

Do you have any tips on how to build a great Instagram travel portfolio?
To build your stream: use variety, but be consistent. Challenge yourself creatively, and edit your photos carefully. I have more tips on my website.

Sam & Gabi, Where to Explore by 24

IG: @wheretoexploreby24

What are your travel plans for the rest of 2015?
The past three years have been a whirlwind of travel for both of us. Combined we have visited Africa, Europe, Australia, Southeast Asia, India, and the United States. Due to the fact that we are completing our undergraduate degrees, we’ve really been focusing on the continent we live in, North America.

Living in one of the most stunning outdoor capitals of the world, we are excited to spend some more time exploring our own backyard. It is so easy to undermine the beauty of your own hometown when you are surrounded by it. To kick off 2015, we have already spent time in Florida and cycled down the Washington and Oregon coast. We plan to hit the Rocky Mountains before summer comes to an end!

Who are your favorite female travel bloggers/Instagrammers?
Whenever we travel, we seek out personal experiences from blogs for advice and recommendations, as opposed to sponsored travel websites. Someone who really inspired Sam when she was traveling throughout Southeast Asia was Adventurous Kate. She loves her raw and unfiltered honesty; if she had a bad experience, she will write about it.

I think as travel bloggers we feel pressure to write home about how amazing every single day is while abroad. We hope to provide our readers with enough insight for them to make their own decision instead of making their minds up for them. And if you don’t find us insightful, at least we’ll make you laugh!

Gabi really loves The Professional Hobo. She quit her job in 2006 and has been traveling full time for the past 8 years. She has amazing tips on budget traveling and falling love while on the road, which makes for some hilarious stories. She helped Gab save money while living in Australia for a year with a very small budget. On the plus side, she is a fellow Canadian!

Do you have any tips on how to build a great Instagram travel portfolio?
Less is more. We try to post our best travel photos, but those aren’t always the most beautiful photos. The best photos have a story to tell. It’s a memorable experience. It’s a connection you made with an individual that impacted you in some way. It’s a sunset that physically took your breath away or a sunrise that energized your morning. Be engaging, selective, original and genuine. Most of all, be adventurous and have fun with it!

Number #5

Sabina, Girl VS. Globe

Blog: www.girlvsglobe.com

What are your travel plans for the rest of 2015?
I am currently in the middle of negotiating several very exciting projects, but I cannot disclose what they are at the moment. What I can tell you is that they might take me to Greece, Germany, Switzerland, Gibraltar, and North America! I will also be visiting my parents in Austria where they currently reside – so much to look forward to, for both me and my followers.

Who are your favorite female travel bloggers/Instagrammers?
I have been following lots of amazing travel and fashion bloggers on Instagram lately and I’m constantly amazed by how talented and hard-working people in the business are. Some of my favorites include @garypeppergirl, @songofstyle, and @inthefrow – I love their mix of beautiful destinations and glamorous outfits!

Do you have any tips on how to build a great Instagram travel portfolio?
If you’d like to have a beautiful account yourself, you should concentrate on creating a cohesive gallery. Having lovely photos is one thing – but in my opinion, it’s not enough. Your photos should go together well and have one style which unites them. Instagram definitely used to be more instantaneous in the past and now many people (including myself) mostly use DSLR shots to provide the best quality photos they can. But don’t let any of that discourage you – it’s all about having a great eye for detail and creative ideas, not the fanciest equipment you can get!

Number #6

Larissa, The Blonde Gypsy

Blog: www.blonde-gypsy.com

What are your travel plans for the rest of 2015?
I’m moving to the Balkans this week so certainly, there will be lots of adventures in that region through the end of 2015 though I’ve got nothing planned past summer. Croatia in July and at the end of August I’m leading a tour through Kosovo and Albania which is going to be ridiculously awesome. From September onwards we’ll see where the wind takes me!

Who are your favorite female travel bloggers/Instagrammers?
Do they have to be female? My absolute favorite Instagrammer right now is @facehunter and he photographs a lot of females in some pretty awesome locations (his jam is a street style around the world).

Do you have any tips on how to build a great Instagram travel portfolio?
Diversify. A good mix of landscapes, architecture, food, people…I’m also a big fan of adding more color and filters to put different spins on places and things that have been photographed a million times before.

Number #7

Jessica, The Travelista

IG: @thetravelista
Blog: www.thetravelista.net

What are your travel plans for the rest of 2015?

So far in 2015, I have traveled to Dublin, Barcelona, Cape Town, Tuscany, Monaco, Tanzania, and the Maldives. My upcoming travel plans include Dubai in October and then perhaps Almunecar in Spain. All my trips are arranged a quite last minute though so my travel plans change all the time!

Who are your favorite female travel bloggers/Instagrammers?
Some of my favorite female travel bloggers and Instagrammers include World Wanderlust @worldwanderlust, A Lady in London @aladyinlondon, Rosie Londoner from The Londoner Blog @rosielondoner, Tash Oakley @tashoakley (blogger and swimwear model), Em Sheldon @emshelx (Fashion, Travel and Lifestyle Blogger).

Do you have any tips on how to build a great Instagram travel portfolio?
The best Instagram feeds all have bright, vivid high-quality photos. iPhones are great for a quick snap but if you’re serious about creating a dreamy Instagram feed think about investing in a good quality SLR camera with WiFi so you can transfer the photos straight from your camera to your phone. This is what I do to ensure all my photos have great quality. I would also say that including photos that capture the finer details of where you are and what you’re doing also help to paint a picture of your travel experience, along with the impressive scenic shots.

Number #8

Ash, Liakada Travel

IG: @liakadatravel

What are your travel plans for the rest of 2015?
I tend to make my travel plans at the last minute but at the moment I am currently planning trips to London, Istanbul, and Borneo!

Who are your favorite female travel bloggers/Instagrammers?
My favorite female bloggers are Rosie The Londoner and Miss Everywhere. They both take beautiful photos and go to some amazing places, they are a great inspiration.

Do you have any tips on how to build a great Instagram travel portfolio?
Useful tips that I have learned along the way are to use the same camera for every photo and the same editing software each time e.g. VSCO Cam or Snapseed and remember that quality is more important than quantity.

Number #9

Marlene, Chocolate Cookies and Candies

IG: @cookiesncandies
Blog: www.chocolatecookiesandcandies.com

What are your travel plans for the rest of 2015?
I’m heading back to the South of France with my family who’s visiting from New Zealand and then onwards to Barcelona. We’ll explore Wales and perhaps the Cotswolds.

Who are your favorite female travel bloggers/Instagrammers?
@charissa_fay, @parisinfourmonths, @monalogue, @polabur, @cucinadigitale, @jasminetartine

Do you have any tips on how to build a great Instagram travel portfolio?
I’m still on a steep learning curve every day. Have a consistent personal style as people tend to see an overall perspective of your IG feed, learn to understand light and practice makes perfect.
