      I loved doing the research behind each of the girls and discovering how talented so many of them are (not just in photography!) So many different backgrounds that come together in this world of Instagram… xx

    Hello, I love your page…about this post are these the only female travel influencers…are there no black women into this…or you decided to concentrate on a particular statistics…if that’s it no problem…but if not… please next time black women too can be included, I am black and it’ll be really nice to look up to someone with the same color of skin and hair…and probably same geographic location… except this isn’t an international blog too…And for one I know beautiful black travel influencer…with over a 100k followers on Instagram…”asiyamigold”.
    Nice post…thanks.

      So thrilled to hear you love Husskie. I definitely didn’t decide to concentrate on a particular statistic – in fact, had I known about Asiuamigold’s account before putting this together – she would most definitely have been included! I’ve just got in contact with her to see if she’d be interested in doing a feature with us on Husskie as we’d be beyond thrilled to have her on the site. We openly welcome everyone of every colour, age, sexuality – EVERYONE! 🙂 xx

    Sarah Richards at @coffeethentravel is one of my faves. She is also the mastermind behind @girlsthatscuba which has developed a cult following of lady divers of all levels and experiences. Love your work Lena xx

    All the travelers on this list are great creators! I only wished the list wasn’t at least 90% of blonde-thin girls. I like to follow many of them, but seriously, there are SO many influencers with different origins. I think you could do more to contribute to diversity in the travel industry. Isn’t traveling precisely about building bridges between different communities?

    • Husskie says:

      Hi Natalie, I’m so sorry you didn’t feel that there was enough diversity in here and will definitely be more aware of this the next time I pop the list together. I honestly don’t look at people’s race or hair colour when putting it together – just their general feed and photography. But will make sure I’m more aware of this for next time. Definitely agree that travelling is about building bridges between different communities. x

    Love this list!! Absolutely great accounts, yet my fav is missing – @andshexplores for her unique photos and great sense of telling a story. Her blog is also pretty dreamy! I am also missing @saltinourhair on the list, but that’s more like couple influencers right?

    • Husskie says:

      Hi Jure, Thanks for the recommendations! Have started following And She explores and with Salt In Our Hair – I absolutely love their account (we’ve actually previously featured them!) – but this one was about just the girls. I’m going to be putting together one on couples shortly – so keep an eye out for that article! x

    Simply a great read, Build your own dreams, You are and always will be in your own life.

    • Husskie says:

      So true, and love this statement. I think that modern life now, more than ever, has given us the opportunities to live out dreams. x

  14. Felicity says:

    I love following Grace @reignbowserpent on her travel adventures. She is beautiful girl inside and out, she writes lovely pieces about her travels, her love of family and has a strong social conscience.

  15. Alla says:

    Hi there! Don’t miss fresh pictures from @alllavi on my road trip in Australia #admiringaustralia

  16. Astha says:

    Wow, Both Are Pretty look.

  17. Georgiana says:

    Hi girls, I’m pretty sure you will love my feed as well -> @iamgeorgiana

    I hope I’ll make it to this list pretty soon.

  18. Susan Edel says:

    Hey there, love this list! I’d love to have you check out my site. I focus on luxury travel and resorts. My intent is to start creating short videos highlighting the locations I visit. I hope you get a chance to visit my site on Instagram @no.ordinary.resort or website ~ Susan

  19. Sarah says:

    @mylifeaseva is my favorite travel & videography influencer

  20. Ima says:

    I don’t have a travel account but I LOVE @fameisficklefood. I think she’s different because she tells a story with each image

  21. Drew C. says:

    Same, same, same, same, same… 100 of them and not an original in the bunch. Traveling the world wasting precious years of their lives doing exactly what everyone else is doing. Same locations, same shots, same filters, like little carbon copies begging for likes. Pathetic, sad, staged, uninteresting and worst of all inauthentic.

    Are you travel social media influencer planning to visit Cyprus, Turkey or the UK soon? We may offer free tours or discounted prices for you. Read more at

  23. Lola Mendez says:

    Miss seeing my fellow women of color on this list! Happy to see a few Latinos and Asians but just a very small amount makes me sad. Would have been great to see some responsible travelers too. I’m both, for future reference! @MissFilatelista

  24. Dave Horn says:

    I have recently found this influencer from Ukraine and love her style and stories. You might want to check it out. Also, coming from Ukraine I think gives her a unique perspective on things) @travelgirl_ukraine
