United States – Kiersten (@theblondeabroad), 432k
Originally from the west coast of the USA, Kiersten does not seem to be satisfied with the Californian sun. This blonde is literally going abroad. Thus, she quit her career in corporate finance and started traveling the world.

She is not the luxury travel influencer kind of girl but shares stunning wildlife pictures and breathtaking sunsets right from the middle of Africa. She recently visited Zimbabwe and Tanzania.
Russia – Murad Osmann (@muradosmann), 4.6m
You’ve probably already stumbled upon one of his pictures in the past. Murad takes pictures of his wife holding her hand, following her anywhere and activates people with the hashtag #followmeto.
People copy this pose constantly on Instagram. It is no surprise that he creates a media value per post of more than 22,000$!
Indonesia – Wayhu Mahendra (@iwwm), 68k
For all of you who plan on traveling to Asia: Wayhu Mahendra mainly posts from Bali or Indonesia. With 68k followers, he is one of the smaller travel influencers but his recent growth rates seem more than just promising (+11.1%).
Furthermore, his followers engage with his content a lot as the Like Follower Ratio of 14.9% highlights. Check out how well he captures the beautiful nature in his photos!

Influencer as a childhood dream? Probably not for Dave and Deb who have been traveling for ten years already, visiting more than 105 countries while winning several awards and working with some of the greatest travel brands.
They are so to say the old hands of travel influencers which just makes them even more experienced.

Brazil – Brian Baldrati (@isthisreal), 82k
Brazilian travel photographer Brian is always on the road. He is also one of the smaller accounts we are showcasing but his Instagram feed displays a good mixture of postings of cities and nature.
“Is this real” is quite the name for a travel influencer, isn’t it?

Maybe it was too rainy for Jacob in England – we do not know – but we do know that his audience quality score of 82% is nothing to sneeze at and his earned media value is constantly showcasing good rates!
