Amid the global pandemic a light has emerged at the end of the tunnel. Provided by widespread vaccination programs protecting millions from the virus, people can finally start planning their next trip whether it’s domestic or international.
This week we’ve put together a list of content creators who create travel related content to help inspire you to start researching for your next vacation and to get out there and experience the majesty of our world.
Without further ado, let’s jump into the list!
Lucy started her Instagram as a way to document her travels and offer recommendations to people. As a keen traveler and photographer, she greatly enjoys sharing her experiences with her followers through the visual medium of Instagram.
Recently, Lucy has been trying to travel more sustainably and think of her impact on the environment. She rightly believes that more local travel will help with this rather than getting on a plane to far flung places across the globe.
Having stayed in an eco-hotel made from shipping containers in London last year she plans on supporting accommodations which do their part to reduce their impact on the environment.
Since the Coronavirus hit, Lucy has shifted her focus to food blogging, trying to “travel through food instead”. When lockdowns have lifted she plans to focus on staycations in the UK and day trips (with a few food recommendations thrown in there too).
Stay tuned for her first post-lockdown trip to the Cotswolds that she has planned for next month!
Anabel is a Cuban content creator who moved to Zambia at the age of 12 and fell in love with the wondrous nature Africa has to offer. Since she has lived in a few countries and started a family who match her passion for discovering new places and experiencing new cultures.
Having originally started her Instagram account as a hobby, things couldn’t be more different now as Anabel has nurtured a passion for showing her followers the world through her eyes.
Check out her IG to take a visual dive into Anabel’s and her family’s world.
Tori is a vegan, single mum to her very sweet 4-year-old daughter who started her social channels as a way to catch up with her friends and post photos of her little girl. From there it grew into her sharing travel photos, making loads of connections with likeminded people and growing an audience who love to follow her every move.
Tori loves taking her daughter away on trips to explore the UK and loves trying new vegan foods, especially when travelling abroad.
This year Tori plans on focusing on sustainability and becoming eco-friendlier. She’s always on the hunt for ways she can become more sustainable by altering different aspect of her life.

Natalie Laura Barron
Natalie is an ethical and sustainable travel blogger whose mission is to support the people and wildlife of our world. Even at an early age, Natalie was completely fascinated by the world we live in, by the culture, the nature and the intricate systems that maintain and support life.
Surprisingly though, it wasn’t until university that she began to understand the true impact we have on this world. She came to realise how damaging tourism can be, the brutal ways in which animals are exploited, and just how much our environment was struggling because of our lifestyles.
Wanting to help solve the problem, but not entirely sure how to put her skills to use to do so, she decided not to continue with academia and, instead, unite her love of travel with her knowledge of zoology and conservation to create The Runaway Grad.
Nowadays her goal is to teach others how they can travel sustainable, experience nature, and help support conversation efforts around the world.
“If we all learn how to make small changes to the way we travel, together we can make a huge difference.”Natalie Laura Barron

Arianna is a 25-year-old Italian girl who moved to France a few years ago to follow her dream job to work as a flight attendant.
During the October quarantine in France last year she decided to renovate her Instagram to show off her love for travelling, taking pictures and also helping others to plan their travels. As she was always helping her family and friends to plan their own vacations she thought that if her ideas and tips were useful to them then there’s no reason they wouldn’t be useful to others too.
As an eco-warrior, Arianna is extremely mindful of her impact of the environment, looking to preserve the world for future generation through her use of eco-friendly products for cleaning her home and her personal care routines.
Head over to her IG account to immerse yourself within Arianna’s world.
