How to travel during lockdown?
December and the calendar ahead are fast approaching. This means that it’s almost the end of our confinement trips.
So what could be better than to offer you Instagram accounts from people who have decided to continue traveling. They were already gone when the pandemic hit and they decided to continue living their dream! Therefore they are making us live their adventure by proxy and I confess it makes me dream, so thanks to them.
Here are those I am but there are probably others. If you know some, do not hesitate to communicate them to me and I will add them in a section for your suggestions.
As usual, I have classified them in alphabetical order.
Those who always travel
Gwendoline and Thomas are in love and in love with hiking and travelling. It is therefore normal to find them on the paths of the world. After 1000 km in the Andes and then the discovery of Canada (the Rockies, Yukon and Alaska), it is in New Zealand that they are currently settled thanks to the Working Holiday Program (WHP). During their free time, they take advantage of it to discover this beautiful country by trekking.
Follow the peregrinations of Peter and Matthew who left Paris to discover the world in August 2019. I discovered them during their stay in Mexico, envied them during their stopover in Bacalar (one of my most beautiful Mexican memories) and now I can’t wait to follow their steps in Colombia where they have just arrived. I had the chance to go there almost 2 years ago and it’s a rich and authentic country that really deserves the detour.
Astrid and Joseph’s initial project was a tour of Europe, with Yoko (their dog) and Billy (their van), to meet positive environmental initiatives. They were supposed to leave in the spring, the (yes it’s always for me and if you want to know why I’m stubborn don’t hesitate to ask me!) so the Covid pushed them to postpone it to the fall. Considering the situation at that time the project did not take shape either. So they left for Portugal and since then they have been regaling us with their photos. They are now in Spain !
Still the Van Life but in a completely different region, we change the scenery and go to meet Laura, Thibault and Sam (their van) in Norway. In addition to drinking us with photos all more superb the ones than the others, they tell us without filter their adventures and it is often very funny. Thanks to them for this freshness and their touch of humor!
Those who have just returned and who still have photos to share with us
This was not in my program at the beginning of the month but the next 2 accounts have just come home! I’m sharing them with you anyway because it seems they still have tons of unpublished photos and videos to share with us. The journey continues!
Anissa and Stéphane had set off for Australia on foot and by hitchhiking. They continued in the spring despite the Covid but after several weeks in Turkey, which they loved, the closing of the borders and a fracture for Stéphane will have got the better of them. They have just announced that they are back. More than their Instagram account it is their Youtube channel that I advise you to follow, it seems that new videos are coming soon!
Chrys and Alex visited South America for 14 months. They shared their photos, adventures and especially their setbacks with Léon (their van) but always with a lot of lightness. Their adventure ended last week to start a new one: the construction of a tiny house.
Those he who does not travel but makes us travel
Yes, I deviated a little from the initial theme but this account created last October 1st, by among others Raphaël de Casabianca, presenter of RDV en terres inconnues (I told you about it at the beginning of our trips), is really worth the detour. It is a travel media and they regale us with sublime photos! So subscribe to this account it’s free and it makes you dream…
I hope you enjoyed these trips to the heart of the Instagram traveler accounts and that you also felt like you were discovering the world from home!
Do you know of other travelers still on the roads of the world who could complete this list and continue to make us dream of traveling? And are you ready to set off again soon on the roads of the world?
