If I had to pick one social platform that would be Instagram because I love photography and it makes me travel. With that in mind, I thought I’d share with you some of my favourite accounts whose pictures have me constantly daydreaming of beautiful destinations – good things are meant to be shared, right? Let me know if you have any favourite ones yourselves and don’t forget to follow me too @smarksthespots!



I have been following for a while now Amelie’s travel adventures on Instagram and am always smitten with the beautiful landscapes on her pictures. From Marseille in France, where she is based, to Spain, Italy and Portugal she always fuels my wanderlust. 



Alexandra is a Russian expat living in Germany who loves travelling – you can probably see why I relate to her so much! With her interesting composition and splashes of colour she always shares beautiful pictures that portray life, nature and architecture.



David shares gorgeous pictures from Rome where he lives as well as the cities he visits. I find really interesting his aesthetic and balance in his photos and ever since I started following his account, I keep dreaming of visiting again la bella città.



Hajja lives in one of my ultimate dream destinations, i.e. the Maldives. Being able to see this gorgeous place through the eyes of a local is priceless, especially when it involves lots of colour, palms and crystal waters.  



American in origin, Edna left home at the age of 18 to travel around the world. I always admire the people who have the courage to take risks and pursue their dreams, so this account is a major source of inspiration!
