This winter just won’t end and I’m starting to get stir crazy. Many of us find a glimmer of hope in the internet by gazing at other people’s adventurous lives on Instagram. The widely popular photo sharing application has become a part of our lives as we live vicariously through other people’s pictures. We found our favorite Instagram accounts that offered us a relief from winter and showed us the warmer side of life. These accounts feature amazing travel pictures and will get you out of your winter slump.

This successful travel blogger has an awesome instagram feed that takes you with her as she travels the world. Kiersten Rich left a successful career in finance to wander around the globe and share her tales. Thankful she ventured out of her comfortable nest and decided to travel. She has visited over 50 countries and circumnavigated the globe a few times over. Give her a follow if you want some great photos and even better stories.

This account is awesome as it blends breathtaking locations with delicious looking food into one of the most original accounts on Instagram. The owners hold up outstanding looking food in front of wonderful views and snap pics. You will love their account.

 

@MuradOsmann

This account takes an interesting approach to the standard travel photos. The account is ran by a couple, Murad and Natalia Osmann and al their pictures are of Natalia walking away from the camera and extending her arm back to Murad and the camera. The gesture is tagged “follow me to…, which has become an internet sensation. The couple went viral in 2012 and now every blogger copies the couple.

This account is more of an aggregate site since it takes viewer submissions and posts them. Check this page out if you like variety in your feed and want a little bit of everything. Not all pictures are curated so you will see plenty of original shots.

It’s the story you will hear a lot about travel bloggers but most left their normal jobs to travel the world.

@LePostcard

Popular journalist Stephanie Steinman who posts a combination of her own photos and other bloggers and photographers runs this account. She loves the beach so expect a ton of awesome waves crashing and exclusive locations that the average traveler would never see. Since she posts other people’s pictures, expect a wide variety of locations.

 

@PauseTheMoment

Some of us travel for vacation but the few lucky ones get to travel for a living.   The instagram account @Pausethemoment is run by a blogger named Ryan who originally set out on a six-month trip seven years ago, I guess the trip is going well. He is based out of Playa del Carmen in Mexico so expect tons of beach pics with deep blue waters and the occasional margarita.

Think of the desert and your mind conjures up images of dry dusty lands full of cactus and crawly things. But there is a desert oasis in Southern California that will completely transform your vision of what a desert setting looks like. At Whitewater Preserve you will find 2,851 acres of streams loaded with trout, untouched wilderness and winding trails leading you into the mountains. Just north of Palm Springs and surrounded by the San Gorgonio Wilderness this is one desert destination that you will want to add to your bucket list. The rich habitat hosts the endangered Southwest willow flycatcher and Bell’s vireo, and provides the opportunity to see migrating summer tanagers and vermilion flycatchers. The canyon, an important wildlife corridor between the San Bernardino and San Jacinto Mountains, has a robust wildlife population. 

 

 

This desert oasis is a perfect place for a nature adventure, whether by yourself or with the family. The Whitewater Trout Farm’s historic building has been transformed into a Ranger Station and Visitor Facility. This is the best place to start your adventure. Here you can get a trail map and checklists to help identify local flora and fauna. Although there are many hiking trails, some are not always safe to access. The Ranger Station will have information on any trails that have limited access. After you have spent some time exploring, enjoy the refreshing water at the shaded picnic area. 

 

 

Visitor facilities include individual and group picnic areas and camp grounds that sit in the shadow of steep cliffs where bighorn sheep are often spotted. Fishing is available, but limited to organized catch and release programs for children, in which all the equipment is supplied. There are a variety of hiking trails at Whitewater Preserve, you will find something for everyone. There are paver paths around the pond, perfect for the elderly, and a trailhead leading to the Pacific Crest Trail for the more experienced hiker. No matter what trail you take you will be out in the sun so make sure to bring a hat and use your sunscreen.

 

 

Whitewater Preserve is open daily year round from 8 am to 5 pm, closing only on certain holidays or in the event of dangerous weather conditions. Permits for camping, backcountry trip parking and after hour hiking are available at the Ranger Station during open hours.

About sixty miles east of Krakow, Poland is the ancient village of Zalipie, one of the country’s top tourist attractions, and the prettiest little town you will ever see. The small wooden cottages of this charming village are painted with scenes of nature and local folklore. Considered one of the most picturesque villages in Poland, Zalipie is surprisingly not overrun by tourists.  

 

The tradition started more than a century ago when the female residents began to paint their homes with floral motifs to cover up soot smudges and other faults around their home. Not having access to the materials needed for the project, these ingenious women made their own equipment. The paint was made with the fat from the dumplings they cooked, and hair from the tail of their cows was used for brushes. The women had to repaint their cottages each year, they did this after the Feast of Corpus Christi when they weren’t as busy with the farm work. This unique habit was passed down from one generation to another, and is continued to this day. One woman in particular became obsessed with the tradition. Felicja Curylowa lived from 1904 to 1974, she decorated every surface of her cottage inside and out. After her death the beautiful house was turned into a museum. 

 

Zalipie is a massive painting full of color and history, the entire village is painted. The best time to visit is in the spring when they hold their Painted Cottage Competition. This competition started after the end of World War II in an attempt to cover up the damage done by the war. Visiting this quaint village is a great way to escape the busy life of large cities, to relax and simply enjoy the art. It’s a delight you must see for yourself.
