For when you wanna getaway.

Travel has always been a priority for me—if there's a pair of shoes I'm dying to buy, the only thing I need to do is remind myself of all the places I haven't visited to put them back down. Yes, visiting Paris or Cambodia (two places at the top of my list!) is a lot more expensive than cute slides but, with enough motivation and initiative to save, there's almost always a way to make it happen. The only issue may be the ever-growing list of places I want to visit. These Instagram accounts don't help—they're filled with adventures from middle-of-nowhere sand dunes to urban jungles—but just looking at them is inspiration enough to take the plunge and buy tickets, or head down a dirt road. Here are ten of my favorite travel accounts to follow on Instagram:
