When it comes to the daily grind, we all could use a bit of wanderlust. There’s nothing like flicking through Instagram for a healthy dose of desk-bound escapism. From photographers to bloggers, here are eleven Instagram accounts that will fuel your travel bug and have you booking flights, pronto.

The surf photographer has a knack for icy locations and dramatic landscapes. Chris Burkard has made a name for himself in the world of photography and doesn’t shy away from near freezing conditions. You’ll want to follow him for breathtaking shots of the northern lights.
Follow → @muradosmann
Murad Osmann travels the world with his S.O in search of the most exotic locations to take the iconic “follow me to” photos. We love the diversity in his shots, and the bright, colorful outfits his partner wears – #couplegoals right there.

Follow → @gypsea_lust
If you like sipping coconuts on deserted islands and strolling through rice paddy fields then Gypsea Lust is your go-to. Her and beau @doyoutravel seem to live the ideal life of adventure and unique experiences. Throw in a couple of waterfalls and a sky of Turkish hot air balloons, and you’ve got yourself a serious case of FOMO.
Follow → @neverlandboys.co
This group of friends document their “eternal youth” and many travels surfing, exploring and ultimately living a life we thought only existed in travel magazines. Definitely worth a follow for some wanderlust and channeling your inner Peter Pan.
Follow → @the_salty_blonde
This beach bombshell has a wardrobe any boho-chic gal would envy. Splitting her time between New York and Hawaii, you’ll be sure to see many palm trees and skyscrapers whilst scrolling through the blogger’s envious feed.
Follow → @worldwanderlust
From the mountains of Canada to cruising the Norwegian Fjords, Brooke Saward is the travel blogger you need to know about. She’ll let you in on where to get the best cupcakes in London or the 10 best things to do in Tasmania. You can leave your Lonely Planet at home!
Follow → @samevanslife
Filmmaker/photographer Sam Evans takes on a unique perspective of life on the road. His video edits and photography skills will have you downloading that travel app and looking for the next flight out.
Follow → @masonrosephoto
The Hawaii-based photographer has an eye for all things tropical with a special affinity towards palm trees. Need we say more? We totally love the dreamy, jungle vibes he’s created. A must-follow for some much needed holiday inspiration.
Follow → @lucylaucht
Morrocan adventures and colourful European towns await when you follow travel blogger Lucy Rose Laucht on the ‘gram. Her round the world adventures are chronicled on her blog These Foreign Lands, and we can’t help but lust over the colorful, exotic locations.
Follow → @fit_travels
Backpacking through South East Asia, Sarah documents her life island hopping from one tropical location to the next. We love her realistic approach and the fact that she keeps fit on her travels, like hiking mountains and boxing with a Muay Thai specialist.
