Okay, so it certainly isn’t summer yet… But despite the less than satisfactory weather, we’re already dreaming of crystal clear blue water and white sands, and mentally packing a suitcase full to the brim with vibrant bikinis, white broderie anglaise dresses and of-the-moment straw bags. So whether you’re heading to a far-flung destination, or planning a British staycation, here are five travel bloggers to follow on Instagram for guaranteed summer excitement…
Hit follow on Liberty’s Instagram and you’ll be met by sparkling blue water and exotic shores aplenty. She spent the end of 2017 travelling South America – sharing tips on her blog – and she’s just got back from an enviable trip around Sri Lanka and the Maldives. Her next adventures? Hong Kong, South Korea and the Philippines… stay tuned.
Follow @Anniesbucketlist for rose-tinted photographs of exotic destinations and stellar fashion choices. Right now she’s in Turkey – with her fiancé @Willsbucketlist who’s also worth a follow – and has recently been posting from Croatia, Vietnam, Iceland and the Amalfi Coast.
If you’re a fan of action-packed adventures and exhilarating outdoor pursuits, following @wheresmollie is a must. Her recent adventures include exploring Finland via skidoo, a safari tour of Kenya and a Great Ocean Road road trip. She’s also founded her own travel collective – @wmglobaltravellers – should you want to join in.
Aggie Lal is a seasoned traveller, whose recent adventures have covered South Africa, the Philippines, brazil and California. Expect tropical beach and jungle destinations, enviable swimwear, and many an animal encounter (for example, this one with the pigs of Exuma).
One scroll through Lucia’s Instagram feed will have you longing for summer. Her 2018 goal was to “watch more sunsets than Netflix” – so far, so good. Head to her profile for European travel tips. She’s off to Positano and Santorini next, and in the process of planning a trip to Miami, Bahamas and Cuba.
