Best Travel Instagram

Looking for some super intriguing  traveling couples to scroll and stalk? We have gone deep into Instagram and found the some of the best travel Instragrams which The Gram might not show you in the search feature.  These are couples traveling the world, and doing it bloody right. 

We apologise upfront, after this you may end up spending every waking minute on Skyscanner, or with a bloody angry boss when you throw in the towel & quit your job to get amongst it. But is that really a bad thing? 

We guarantee there will be no #couplegoals, #relationshipgoals or inspirational quotes here. Only real travel couples who are out there doing it. These couples are the ones that inspire us and keep us striving to keep travelling. In our eyes, these couples are living the way every couple should be.

Want to Travel Year Round?

We have been house sitting around the world for the past 18 months.


 We have got to care for some amazing animals in places such as London, Melbourne, Chiang Mai & Dublin, for free! 


We have put together the all the best house sitting sites that we have discovered. So if you want to get started head over to how to become a house sitter now!


Adventure in You 

Anna and Tom are the duo behind Adventure in You.

In 2015, Anna & Tom quit their 9-5’s with the goal to complete the top 50 adventure holidays in the world. The highlights so far have been traversing through Amazon rainforest, driving a tuk-tuk across Sri Lanka and traveling across Vietnam on a motorbike. Next up on their list is their upcoming trek to Everest Basecamp.

Adventurefaktory

Mitch & Thuymi are an Australian and Canadian Duo behind AdventureFaktory, currently based in Dubai

They have just had their biggest travel year yet, visiting 24 different countries and taking over 80 flights. Adventure Faktory ended the year by setting a Guinness World Record by trekking to Mt Everest Base Camp and performing the world's highest altitude fitness class.

In 2018 AdventureFaktory plan to compete in the Mongol Rally, one of the biggest car races in the world. It will be a journey from London to Mongolia, over 17000km of flat tyres, border patrols, river crossings; all with the smallest and banged up car you can find, all in the name of charity of course. 

Not Sure Where To Stay Between House Sits? 

We always use Airbnb! 
We give a big discount if you sign up here. That also means  you have more money for the good things in life, like  cheese , wine & travel


A Greek Adventure

Chris and Mary of AGreekAdventure manage to get our tummies rumbling with their delicious foodie posts. They have traveled to more than 30 countries so far, though they do have a “tender tooth” for Greece (their post on Greek food is incredible).

Outdoors, adventure activities and some types of extreme sports are what they like most when in nature. In cities, they try to absorb as many things as possible for local culture, food and people.

Chris is a Digital Marketer by profession, while Mary holds a PhD in Chemistry. In many cases this comes very handy as they can do their work from any remote location in the world, as long as there is good Wi-Fi and great coffee.

Almortravel

Together Alexe & Lucas are Almortravel, currently living in Belgium. During the week they work full-time in khaki camouflage (the army). In weekends they love to discover new places all over the world.

Together they have been to over 10 destinations and they are planning more in the very near future. Their ultimate dream is to become Master Divers and go work abroad in search of some infinite sunshine. Lucas has lived in Brazil and the Dominican Republic. Alexe had already traveled to the Philippines, Morocco, Egypt, Tunis and numerous places in Europe.

Just recently they started their Instagram account to meet other travel couples and to keep an online photo album of their best pictures.

Always Around The World

Kelly and Nanet, just two ordinary girls that left everything behind to fulfill their dream: Travel  the world!

Since May 2017 they are on the road. The travel bug caught them and they never want to stop traveling anymore. They avoid South America as long as possible, because they are afraid they can’t leave from there anymore once they arrive.

In the beginning they had a very tight budget, which limited them in their explorations, but since they work online they really live their ultimate life in freedom and traveling has become even more fun!

Their best destination so far was Iceland, where they cycled 3000km during 3 months. The adventure was there and the nature is stunning!

And their best experience was during the winter of 2017 in Scandinavia, where they worked with huskies and saw incredible Northern Light shows!

Apenoni Traveller

Rocio & Julian are the founders of  Apenoni. They are a Mexican/German couple traveling the world and documenting their adventures.

They spent their last 2 years building up their business as well as exploring new destinations including  with the city-life of L.A, the chocolate-lover's heaven of Brussels, the remote-island life of Madeira and the majestic cities and deserts of Rajasthan.

In 2018 they are planning to visit Russia during the World Cup, explore the islands of Indonesia as well as road-trip around eastern Europe.

Clayton and Janelle began their “Let’s Get Wild” journey after having a Texas wedding in April 2018. They bought one-way plane tickets to Costa Rica and brought their two cats along.

Bonnie & Clyde

Applying Clayton’s knowledge in advertising and marketing and Janelle’s in biology and foreign languages, they created Bonnie Clyde Worldwide to document their wild experiences around the world and show people how to afford travel.

Together Clayton and Janelle have hiked the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, lived as locals in Costa Rica for three months, and explored bat caves in Mexico.

Currently, Clayton and Janelle are living in Mexico, discovering epic nature destinations and mouth-watering food in the country. They are determined to inspire your travel dreams.

Dang Travelers

David and Angela are a married couple from the United States who share their budget-savvy secrets to affording a life of travel on their blog the Dang Travelers.

Their most recent adventures include gallivanting around Portugal for two months, surviving a 500-mile hike on the El Camino de Santiago in Spain, and a three-month road trip across the United States via Route 66.

For the  2018 they will be road tripping in their campervan turn minivan searching for off-the-beaten-path places while also visiting some of the post popular cities in America like Savannah and Charleston.

Double Occupancy

"Carla and Guil began dating in Miami after college, and a few months into their relationship they convinced each other that traveling around the world was the best next step…. casual.

After a year of planning the couple quit their jobs in 2017 and began a journey that would take them to three different continents and over 20 countries. They spent 10 months traveling between Europe, South America and Southeast, living out of backpacks and off of their savings.

They have created a blog and Instagram account to inspire and help others wanting to do the same.

Now that they're back home, they've chosen NYC as their base. They plan to explore everything the city has to offer in 2019, and of course, there's plenty more traveling to come."

For Two, Please

Cat and Kev are an adventure-loving duo based out of Calgary, Canada. The young couple met in Taiwan in 2013 and started traveling together ever since – that’s how their account name, For Two, Please, came into existence!

As food lovers, adventure enthusiasts and luxury-seekers, they are inspired to discover one-of-a-kind experiences around the world.

We Did It Our Way

Carine and Derek are from Montreal, like typical Canadians, they met during a hockey party in 2010. Their beloved Habs (the Montreal Canadians) had finally made it to the playoffs. Although the Canadians run didn’t last, Carine and Derek’s relationship did!

After 5 years of dating, they got married in September 2015. They were set to follow the typical routine of life, but one day, Carine had a “crazy” thought. She asked: “What if we take our savings, and go travel for a year?” Knowing Derek, she never expected his answer to be “Hell yeah! Let’s do it!” And the rest is history!

What was set to be only a year turned into a 15-month trip. Without a set plan, they went where the wind (and the cheapest flights) took them. They ended up traveling to 28 different countries in Asia, Oceania, the Caucasus, and Europe. They learned to scuba dive in Thailand, and swam with a whale shark. They drove a campervan through New Zealand, covering over 4,500 km in 21 days.

2019 is still a mystery for them. They don’t have much planned. One thing is clear, their travels have only just begun. There is so much more of the world they want to see. 

We Travel Together

Together they have been to Africa twice visiting in total 9 countries and having some awesome wildlife experience; spent time with mountain gorillas in Uganda, been chased by a hippo in Botswana, and in Tanzania they were that close to a wild lioness that they could have touched her.

1000 Fights

We all know that couple travel is not always the picture perfect scene of a couple walking hand in hand on a white sandy beach, or staring lovingly at the sea atop Santorini.

We want you to meet the Fighting Couple of 1000Fights. They share the ups as well as the downs of couple travel, and add in a dash of helpful relationship advice.

They are one of the most "real" couples out there. The Fighting Couple met in 1st grade and have been fighting ever since. Together they have been to nearly 50 countries on six continents.

Whats next for them? Antarctica in 2019! Give their Instagram a follow to track all of their zany adventures.


Done some serious lurking of these accounts? Don't worry us too! Hopefully this inspires you to get bloody amongst it and see the world.

Fantastic accounts and suggestions. I’ll have to follow a few.

Some other favourites of mine include @nodestinations (https://www.instagram.com/nodestinations/) – They seem to travel everywhere together and have just had a baby too. Plus their shots are so good.

I also like @barnadrift (https://www.instagram.com/barnadrift/) who often travels with his girlfriend @devstinations (https://www.instagram.com/devstinations/) and then puts her in the photographs.

Thanks for all your recommendations.
