How Far from Home
How Far from Home is an Instagram run by Chanel and Stevo. Originally from South Africa they left their jobs in advertising and branding and have never looked back. They have travelled to 60 destinations in one year and each of their instagram pictures shows how far from home they are with the miles written on a small chalkboard. Cute right? It’s charming and original idea!
107 625km // Deadvlei // Namibia Let us paint the scene… It's 43 degrees Celsius. Our 4×4 is about 1.5km away. The sun is slowly going down. There isn't a person in sight, and the two of us are standing on the clay desert sand, surrounded by dead trees that have only been preserved by the heat and wind of Namibia's oldest desert. Ah #Deadvlei 😍 If we could handle the heat more, we would never leave.

Photograph by @JohnStanmeyer Sacred Cenote ~ Cenotes were once sacred places, such as the majestic X'Keken Cenote in the town of Dzitnup just outside of Valladolid in the Yucatan of Mexico. Today, they are places of rest and at times, meditation. I photographed this poetic moment for the Nat Geo story, Sacred Water, spending three days in this amazing underground cave, sharing here to all those on the National Geographic Travel IG. Pleased to announce my latest Visual Storytelling and Social Media workshop, a 9-day event happening in Tbilisi, Republic of Georgia, June 22-30, 2016. We’re more than half full in just over a week of announcing this deeply empowering photographic workshop.

Daniel is a Sheffield based photographer and recently Alice has been loving his feed! Mysterious images of the beautiful Lake District with is amazing peaks and glassy lakes. Looking through his feed makes me feel like “Jerusalem” should be playing over the top.
Laura is a travel blogger from Berlin who is currently studying and living in Istanbul. Her instagram is full of decorative buildings, exotic adventures and impressive landscapes. At the moment she is in Istanbul but has recently come back from a 3 week journey round Thailand.
Johan Lolos runs lebackpacker, he is a travel/adventure photographer and world explorer. He is currently exploring Europe, more specifically Finland (be prepared for some serious snow and reindeer envy!) Johan has what sounds like the perfect life, travelling round the world while photographing it sounds pretty perfect to me.

Eskil Digernes is a hiker and photographer from Norway. Currently he is in Japan taking some amazing photographs! Be sure to check out his images from his trip to Patagonia. Seriously some amazing views and they make us want to travel across the globe and hike for days to get these views too!
Max Muench is a Berlin based travel photographer. His photographs seriously remind us of films or fairytales. Currently he is in Iceland capturing photos of great waterfalls and animals. We can’t wait to see where he is off to next- although it may cost our bank accounts.
If you haven’t been following (or know about) Time Peake he is a British astronaut who is currently circling the globe on the international space station. Technically his pictures aren’t the typical wanderlust travel pictures but they make us see how beautiful our world is. Sometimes you just need a little perspective! He posts videos of the aura borealis and, like this one, pictures of amazing scenes from above.
Travelettes is a collective of women travelling around the globe blogging as they do, providing us with inspiration and amazing stories. On their instagram they highlight other travellers and have them as take over guests. For a week or so a female traveller will show their images from where they are.
