We all use Instagram for different things. Some of us use it to document our daily lives, some of us use it to show off our cooking skills, some of us use it solely to show off how cute our pets are. But what about using it for inspiration? These six adventure Instagram accounts will do just that for you — they’ll make you want to get off the couch and go do something, and even if you don’t have the time or the money to do that, they’re totally worth a follow for the beautiful pictures alone.
Chelsie Autumn Antos (@chelsiantos)
This entrepreneur, photographer, dog lover, and traveler, will make you want to buy a camper ASAP. Chelsie and her husband/MIDDLE SCHOOL sweetheart-turned pastor, Ryan, left their cozy apartment behind to travel the United States together. While running the nonprofit jewelry store, Trades Of Hope, which helps women from impoverished countries make their way out of poverty, Chelsie and her husband hope to spread love and peace across the United States. Oh, and she does wedding photography, what could be more perfect?
Caroline Calloway (@carolinecalloway)
This writer/Cambridge queen will make you want to visit the British countryside. Calloway weaves magical, fairytale-esque stories out of photos. Through the use of the written word and the backdrop of Cambridge and London, Caroline makes us fall in love with her, her boyfriend Oscar, and their adorable pup Winston. After just a few minutes on Caroline’s Instagram, which includes castles, princes (yes PRINCES), and balls, we’re ready to find our own fairytale.
Kirstyn Hippe (@kirstynhippe)
This NYC-based student, photographer, and songwriter makes you want to visit the Big Apple, like, yesterday. From shots of that trendy ice cream you saw on FB to photos at your favorite Broadway show, Kirstyn shows that it doesn’t matter how young you are or if you’re on a student budget, you can still find adventure. Even in your own city! Plus she managed to create a RAINBOW with Instagram photos, how cool is that!
The Proper People (@theproperpeople)
These two best friends take adventuring to a whole new level — they explore abandoned buildings! Through their YouTube videos and Instagram, The Proper People share the beauty in the places we tend to forget. From old insane asylums to missile silos, The Proper People aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty. They’ll inspire you to check out that “haunted” house at the end of your block (with permission, of course).
Aspyn Ovard (@aspynovard)
This YouTuber travels the world with her husband, Parker. Aspyn and Parker vlog their adventures everywhere from London to VidCon. From her OOTD in Copenhagen to shots of her breakfast, Aspyn makes us want to book a flight ASAP.
Jason Charles Hill (@JasonCharlesHill)
This Australian- based lifestyle/adventure photography will make you fall in love with, well, everything. From stunning shots of waterfalls to hot air balloons, Jason knows how to capture the beauty of this world. Jason will encourage you to explore the outdoors. Grab your lantern and some S’mores because you will definitely want to go camping after looking at Jason’s Instagram.
