A week from today I will be back in Europe! I can’t believe it! It’s been nearly three years since I’ve been back in my favorite continent and I am so eager to return. As of now, I will be heading to Portugal, Italy, Malta, the Netherlands, Belgium, and England (and I still have two weeks in there to play around with). I cannot wait and I have been scouring through Instagram looking for inspiration for my six week trip! So today I’m bringing you a roundup of the best Instagram accounts that inspire you to visit Europe. If you have any other ones, please leave them in the comments as I’m always looking for more people to follow (bonus if they don’t have a bajillion followers)!
The Best Instagram Accounts That Inspire You To Visit Europe
1. Gaia Ferrari Melilla (@lagaiavita)
~Vacanze romane~ ❤️🇮🇹 Blue hour in Rome got me like this, with my beloved hat, a bunch of new friends, the stunning view of the Colosseum and a summer breeze…can a girl ask for more?! Thanks @instagram for giving me the chance to meet @unequal_vision @fluoaci @antoniofoni and @mariachiara.v, go check them out and share some love to their beautiful galleries! Buona domenica! 💛🤗 . . . . . . . . #topeuropephoto #travelgram #ig_italy #igtravel #italygram #igersitalia #igworldclub #ourplanetdaily #passionpassport #socality #dametraveler #huffpostgram #living_europe #living_destinations #communityfirst #best_italiansites #mytinyatlas #travelphotography #neverstopexploring #wearetravelgirls
Gaia takes some of the most dreamy photos of Italy. Seriously the tones she uses make you feel warm inside and want to travel to Italy ASAP.
2. Caitlin Collins (@augustaleighphoto)
I’ve been following Caitlin for a few years now and it’s been so fun watching her adventures around Europe. She’s originally from America but now calls Berlin home!
3. Caroline (@thebelleabroad)
Another awesome lady I’ve been following since I lived in Europe! Caroline and I have actually been emailing for years. She’s been living in London and is frequently exploring Europe!
4. Ellie Quinn (@thewanderingquinn)
This list has a bit of a theme of people I’ve been following and chatting with for years (and hopefully meeting during my upcoming trip). Ellie and I started talking when I was in Italy too ( I think), if not, it was while she was traveling around SE Asia. Regardless, she too calls London home, but uses her weekends to venture off to Europe (most recently Spain!).
5. Mark And Mimi (@thecommonwanderer)
Bucharest is happy 😀. . We had an idea in our minds that Romanians would be cold, abrupt and unfriendly. We're not sure why, perhaps it's their communist past, or our naivety around Romanians in general. Well, it turns out they're bloody lovely. So many locals, from all walks of life, greeted us with huge smiles every day, and were so willing to share their stories and insights with two complete strangers. They taught us their language, beamed when we used it, shared their plates of food, laughed with us for hours, and welcomed us with open arms. . Reason enough to visit Bucharest? We think so!
Traveling couple Mark and Mimi have been all over the world. The Australian duo have traveled to over 30 countries together and they’ve been spending a lot of time in Europe recently!
6. Yishyene (@smallcrazy)
I love following Yishyene! Her feed is filled with color, which is of course my favorite. She lives in Porto and explores the world, most recently visiting Turkey! I’m actually meeting up with her next week!
7. Mollie Bylett (@wheresmollie)
I’ve been following Mollie for over a year at this point and not only does she have a really fun Instagram account, she also vlogs from her destinations so you can really get a great look at what she’s up to!
8. Jess Gibson (@thetravelista)
Bilbao is the biggest city in Northern Spain and is only 20 minutes from the coast (and a beach!) Today I hopped on the Bilbao Metro and visited the coastal area of Getxo…thanks to everyone who recommended this! For the best views of Getxo, dare yourself to go up to the top of the famous Vizcaya Bridge and cross the wooden walk way (not for the faint hearted!) Watch me freak out as I cross it on on IG stories 😂 🇪🇸 #SpainCities #Ad
Jess is one of the sweetest people I’ve met on the Instagram world and she’s always off a new adventure. Her latest one brought her to Spain too!
9. Sabina (@girlvsglobe)
Last month I got to explore Menorca with @PolkadotPassport and @TheCommonWanderer, and we're back in Spain again! 🇪🇸 This time we're sadly not together but we're all taking part in the #SpainCities project along with seven other bloggers (tagged in this photo). We're focusing on lesser known destinations around the country – just the way I like it! ❤️ I decided to visit Segovia, a gorgeous historic city just 30 minutes away from Madrid by train. I've only been here a few hours but I'm smitten already! Have you ever heard of Segovia? What's your favourite Spanish city? ☺️ ••• 📷 @biggsytravels
Sabina is always smiling and it’s so fun to see her adventures. She headed to Menorca with a ton of bloggers/grammers a few months ago and it looked so fun!
10. Nicola Easterby (@polkadotpassport)
You know those people you follow that you want to be friends with? That’s Nicola for sure! She is always having amazing adventures (she’s currently living in Spain learning Spanish) and she always has them with a smile on her face!
11. Ashley Buchanan (@historyinhighheels)
I’ve known Ashely for a few years now. I met her while I was living in Italy! She combines fashion, history, and travel to create some pretty epic photos!
12. Dave Jones (@jonesaroundtheworld)
So I know Dave, but I actually haven’t met him in person. He used to work in Italy too, a few years before me. He’s currently back in Florence (I can’t wait to see photos) and I couldn’t be more jealous!
