Random Friday Post – Instagram Inspiration

I’ve decided that I am going to try and post more regularly, thought it might be a good idea that each Friday I would post a random post. The plan is that these will be short posts about something that has smacked me in the head and said “you should so talk about me”… so without further adieu, this weeks topic is Instagram Inspiration.

I get inspired by a lot of things especially when it comes to Instagram, not only travel related posts but quotes, family photos etc. The app has grown into so much more than friends sharing photos with friends. You can follow and have followers from all over the world and from all different backgrounds. It’s a great way of connecting with like-minded people.

Today I am going to share with you some of my favourite Instagram accounts:

Pretty Little London

This account showcases some of the best photos from around London. Accounts like Pretty Little London are a great way to find other awesome accounts/people to follow.

Richard Lee Massey

I had actually seen a photo of Richard’s featured on Pretty Little London that I loved and started following him because of that. I love these wonderful little cafe’s he seems to find in London

Love Great Britain

Amazing photos shared from around the UK. I get very inspired by some of these photos, and am constantly adding more places to my ever growing list of places to visit in the UK.

Pure New Zealand

Well I couldn’t not have this account in a list of my favourite Instagram accounts. Also the photo I’m featuring here is by another account I follow, who constantly has AMAZING photos, @barekiwi

Brent Purcell

Brent is an amazing Kiwi photographer, his photos are definitely awe-inspiring!

Sarah C

No, it isn’t just because her name is Sarah too, she also takes really beautiful photos on her travels (she’s currently in Lebanon)

Regular Steven

Steven Wright takes the most incredible photos of Melbourne. He’s a super talented guy.


Jiri Siftar was one of the very first Instagram accounts I started following because of his amazing photos of London.

Pack Your Passport

Beverley’s blog, Pack Your Passport, was one of the first travel blogs I started reading when she was based in New Zealand. She has since moved back to her native UK and continues to share her adventures.

Page Family Adventures

My very good friend Felicity posts gorgeous photos of her & her sons adventures around Queensland, the Northern Territory and South East Asia. I also love the quotes she posts too.. Felicity is one inspirational chick!

The First Piper

Ross Jennings is travelling around the world with his bagpipes. His aim is to play the bagpipes in every country in the world. Can’t get better than that… Travelling the world & Bagpipes!

Le Backpcker

One of my favourite Instagram accounts, Johan Lolos has been travelling around the world for a good few years now. I started following him when he was based in New Zealand and was posting stunning photos of the country

African savanna at its best. It's gonna be hard to beat that morning.
