Instagram is one of the fastest growing social media platforms out there. And with more than 20 billion photos shared, it’s also a great source of travel inspiration (and a lot of selfies!)

So, I thought I’d round up a few of my favourite travel Instagram accounts – the ones that will make you want to book a plane ticket for your next holiday. The best part? They’re all run by women.
