Who to Follow on Snapchat: 10 Travel Bloggers to Ignite Your Wanderlust

Who to Follow on Snapchat: 10 Travel Bloggers to Ignite Your Wanderlust

Have you heard of Snapchat?

If you haven’t, it’s basically a phone app that lets you share and send photos + videos to your friends and followers. It might seem like it’s another one of those so-so social medial platforms, but let me tell you that it’s NOT. It’s really fun to use and I personally love it! Truth be told, its exclusivity will make you want for more ‘snaps’ every day! Why so?

  • It’s REAL. Snapchat is like YouTube and Instagram mashed together but less the perfection, which is nice for a change because everything is ‘as is’.
    • All photos and videos (called as ‘snaps’) can only be primarily taken with one’s camera phone on-the-spot. So, there’s no room for pre-editing…
    • BUT there are awesome post-editing filters and features that you can do on your snaps. What this means then is that though everything is taken raw, with the added photo + video styles that Snapchat has to offer, you will absolutely see everyone’s quirky personality!
  • Everything gets delivered LIVE, so you can see what everyone is doing in real time. You can actually think of Snapchat as some sort of medium for people to put up their own reality show as they display to you their day to day life!
  • It’s SHORT BUT SWEET. Every photo and video that’s collected in a day (which is called a ‘story in the app) can be set with a time limit between 1 to 10 seconds; so it’s safe to say that you won’t be bored to death since everything is pretty straightforward.
  • Snapchat is PRIVATE and PERSONAL. Unlike other social media channels wherein you can discover other users through tags or whatnot, Snapchat focuses a lot on privacy given how all ‘snaps’ are erased after 24 hours. Besides, if you want to know who to follow on Snapchat, you can only find and add them if they let you know their username.

Putting all of these factors together, you can get the idea now that Snapchat is unique, and as a user, I like the anticipation that comes with it as I look forward to the next snaps of the people I’m following!

Speaking of which, you’re probably wondering who to follow on Snapchat now… Well, when it comes to igniting your wanderlust, I have the perfect list of travel bloggers who are more than willing to take you along in their adventures around the world!

  1. I have a Snapchat, too! :) I'll have to follow these accounts!

  2. I didn't realize that Snapchat was a big blogger tool! I thought it was mostly a young adult thing, so I haven't really tried it yet. Now that I know there are amazing travel bloggers on Snapchat, I'll have to give it a try.

    1. Well at first it was, it got infamous for teenagers using it as some sort of way to send sexy pics to their partners or friends or whatever haha; but over time, that was phased over by a lot more serious people :)) You should definitely give it a try!

  3. I keep about hearing about snapchat. I guess I should download it later on today and play. All of these bloggers are so inspiring and look like a lot of fun.

    1. It's often compared to Periscope, but I like Snapchat a whole lot more! And I'm happy that hear that you like the post. Enjoy!

  4. I love Snapchat! I shied away from it for a long time but decided to jump on board for the second round of our around-the-world trip. It gives you such a different insight on other travelers and the locations there are visiting. Plus, it's fun to look back on your own day.

    1. Same for me actually! But I didn't want it to become my past situation with Instagram (I got on it a bit too late) so I'm making an effort to be 'there' now -- and it's fun! You should definitely snap your travels, then! Safe trip!

  5. I'm still new on Snapchat and it would be great to follow the top travelers to be inspired. Seeing live actions about their activities is so cool! It's like also being at that part of the world where they are at. Many YouTubers are so into it.

    1. It really is! I'm new as well but it's really fun to do it :)

  6. I never thought to look for travel bloggers on Snapchat before! I love to see other travel bloggers pictures and their explorations around the world. I may have to check this out for sharing our travels with everyone.

    1. Well then you'll love this one, as it's more of a 'behind the scene' thing, so you'll definitely enjoy it :D

  7. I have heard so much about Snapchat but have yet to jump on it, I'm always behind in social media. :) The way you described Snapchat though made me want to sign up! You and the other travelers live such adventurous life's and I could really live vicariously through you guys.

    1. I know what you mean! There's a LOT of social media platforms popping up lately, but it's good to weed out the ones that are effective (and fun!) and Snapchat is one of those! Hope you'll enjoy it :) Thank you!

  8. I've been addicted to Snapchat lately! Not only I follow quite a lot of people, but I also read the 'news' by Tastemade, CNN or National Geography (in the top of stories) before falling asleep and I sometime screenshot interesting articles from that, am I too crazy? They are so interesting sometimes!!

    Thanks for tips which accounts to follow :)

    1. Well then, hello fellow Snapchat addict! ;) Haha! Much like you, I can't get enough of all the snaps. Somehow, I think Snapchat has turned into my 'TV'. (You're welcome by the way!)

  9. I keep hearing about Snapchat, but I must admit that I haven't jumped on the bandwagon yet. You've given me some great reasons to bite the bullet and join the Snapchat party. When I do, at least I'll know ten people to follow.

    1. I think it's time that you jump on, Mindi ;) Glad to have given you a reason! Hope you have fun with it!

  10. This is actually the first time I’ve heard about the app. It sounds quite interesting, especially the time limit thing.

    1. Indeed it is! It really gives you the sense of feeling that you have to stay tuned or you'll miss out on something. Hope you'd like and enjoy the app as I do!
