Travel: 5 Ways to Inspire Your Globetrotting

Do you, like us, have trouble imagining what you’d spend one of our massive travel packages on when you win? Here’s five sites, accounts, and influencers to follow if you’re looking for inspiration!!

Any of these accounts could provide you with ideas to spend any amount of your prize money on, so come take a look and see what our wonderful world has to offer.


Lonely Planet

Although Lonely Planet has a dedicated website with amazing content, we recommend following their Twitter and or Instagram accounts as well for constant, daily inspiration that’s easily accessible. With their wide birth of coverage, from idyllic villas and luxurious getaways to backpacking trips and low-key beach hangouts, there’s bound to be something here for everyone since they pull from everyone they can find.

Their website features amazing coverage including videos and articles on everything you can imagine, including recreating some of your favourite literary adventures.


Wander Reds

Alvaro Rojas (@WanderReds on Instagram) is pretty openly attempting to be the youngest Spaniard to see every country on Earth, and we think he’s got a pretty good shot. Not only has he nailed the “don’t pay attention and look cool” pose, his account features some spectacular landscape shots that are hard to beat. Be sure to check out his highlights at the top as well to see where he’s been and where he’s going next!

We’d challenge you to go somewhere he’s been and see if you can capture it the same way. Are you up for it?

Persian emperors sure did know how to die in style.

NY Times: “36 Hours” Column

The NY Times’ travel column, aptly titled “36 Hours”, is full of amazing tips and tricks to get the most out of particular destinations you may already have on your list, or that you haven’t considered yet.

Definitely give this a look on your personal time though, we can’t guarantee you won’t burn through a work day trying to skim all their content.


Eric Stoen / Travel Babbo

Eric Stoen is an accomplished travel writer and photographer who likes to focus on family-friendly adventures, which we can certainly get behind! If you’re looking for interesting family-centric takes, like where to take your family for the same price as a trip to Disneyland (he actually did that), he’s definitely your man.

His blog posts go live on his website but he posts often to his Twitter and Instagram which we can’t recommend enough for some base-level travel inspiration (and envy).


Murad and Nataly Osmann

Last, but certainly not least, we have the ever-inspiring and glorious Murad and Nataly Osmann. Not only can it be said that they were a huge part of what’s made travel accounts on Instagram so popular, it can be said that they’re a reason why they remain so. First gaining popularity with iconic images of Nataly leading Murad into wonderous landscapes and locations, they’ve kept up their signature style and amped it up like you wouldn’t believe. They also use their platform to raise awareness when possible, including shedding light on the lack of drinking water in poverty-stricken countries across the world.

This husband and wife combo is certainly the cream of the crop, and we guarantee we’d follow them anywhere.

𝔽𝕆𝕃𝕃𝕆𝕎𝕄𝔼𝕋𝕆 #followmeto the Luxor Temple of Man with @natalyosmann. We are finally starting to share amazing stories from our trip to Egypt. Stay tuned for one of the best videos we ever shot and for more photos! Also will be sharing IG TV episodes from each day! This temple was built by Amenhotep III, but completed by other pharaohs of Egypt. Towards the rear is a shrine dedicated to Alexander the Great. During the Christian Era, the temple’s hypostyle hall was converted into a Christian church and the remains of another Coptic church can be seen to the west. Then for thousands of years, the temple was buried beneath the streets and houses of Luxor. Eventually the mosque was built over it. This mosque was carefully preserved when the temple was uncovered. By the way the right Obelisk which is absent on the picture has been taken to Paris in 1830 to Place de la Concorde ❍❍❍❍❍❍❍❍❍❍❍ Do you believe Egyptian gods existed? ❍❍❍❍❍❍❍❍❍❍❍ #следуйзамной в Храм Человека в Луксоре. Это Храм богов Амона, Мут и Хонсю. Храм строился Аменхотепом, но был закончен другими фараонами. Кстати правый обелиск был перевезен в Париж, на площадь Согласия в 1830г. Верите ли вы, что Египетские боги существовали?
