Travel and Photography Inspiration : From Instagram

Instagram has been a source of inspiration and great knowledge sharing platform for me. The relationship with Instagram is two-way! While I share my stories, I get inspired by some brilliant content. The way some people net a story around travel & photography is so amazing. Here are some accounts which I love to follow.

I am not listing these accounts in ranks, but randomly. So number 8 is as good as number 2!


#VanLife – I met Met Mandy in Stockholm in July 2016. Her Vanlife is so tempting! Follow Mandy and see where her VAN is moving…

Wonderful insta-stories and I like her questions too, on her FB page. Erin is full of energy and constantly travels!

Prachi Joshi

I havent met Prachi yet. She writes about food, travel. Her pictures are simple and are very easy-going. The stories she writes, flow smoothly and tempt you to follow her footsteps

Ajay Sood

Ajay is master of architectural photography! His obsession to make travel destinations HOT is infectious! Met Ajay in stockholm last year. Ajay is not only a great travel buddy, he is an excellent teacher too!

Roxanne Bamboat

Eat. Travel. Write. THE most fun person I have met. Super talented and MAKES her instastories while cooking, traveling. The tiny taster – Roxy!

I can’t even begin to describe what a meal at the all Indian Vegetarian restaurant at @jwmarriottpune is like. Indulgent, regal, royal and freakin’ delicious would be an understatement. Traditionally the thali is an authentic Rajasthani experience but they also combine it with another type of Indian cuisine to give the diner a more wholesome Indian culinary experience. Currently it’s a mix of Rajasthani and South Indian food and I think I really understood what the term #foodcoma actually feels like ? A big thank you to the entire team for helping me set up this spontaneous yet elaborate photo shoot! #passionpassport #foodphotography #beautifulcuisine #beautifulplates #food52 #foodvsco #foodgasm #indiancuisine #thetinytaster #tinygoestasting #deathbythali #thali #happyvibes #happiness #travelphotography #punefoodpune #instafood #picoftheday #indianfood #feedfeed #epicurious #culinaryart #desitraveler #vegetarian #nomeat

Neelima Vallangi

Best photography inspiration. She has been sharing various series of her photos. I always think ‘the effort’ behind her beautiful clicks is often not seen.

Siddhartha Joshi

Haven’t met Sid (as he is known) yet, but have spoken with him on phone many times. His stories and his Hindi live Insta sessions are amazing. Best inspiration for mobile portrait photography too!

Pratik Gandhi

I have known Mr. Gandhi for more than 4 years. His feed is full of travel stories – certainly making you want to ‘travel like him’.

Shivya Nath

Were you wondering that I forgot to mention Shivya? Her travel stories and the perspectives she brings have changed many people. I know few who have taken traveling because of Shivya!

Our InstaMeet at 12,000+ feet in Kaza on 8th September was quite a success! And ended in the (not so surprise) unveiling of an art installation we’ve worked on over the last 3 weeks – a lifesize “I love Spiti” made entirely with discarded plastic bottles, now installed near the Kaza gate / Rangrik bridge as a reminder to every traveller, local and business about the need to say NO to plastic bottles in this eco-sensitive mountain desert. . . We estimate that more than 3,00,000 plastic bottles are dumped in Spiti every season. Burning, burying and reusing them results in harmful chemicals being leeched into the groundwater and soil, and the nearest recycling centre is all the way in Punjab! Instead of drinking “Himalayan” water packaged in the plains, we can refill our bottles with clean, filtered Spitian water (with good minerals) at hotels across Kaza and in homestays in the upper villages. As part of this campaign, we are working with more restaurants and cafes to offer filtered water as well as creating awareness among locals on the ill effects of re-using these cheap plastic bottles to store water / alcohol. . . On a lighter note, after our afternoon of thought-provoking discussions around responsible travel and the inauguration of the installation, our InstaMeet was crashed by the MLA, ADC and their convoy who happened to be driving past ? How often does that happen?! . . A big shoutout to the team @spitiecosphere, fellow volunteers @ibttu @aakashranison and everyone who stopped by to help in the days leading up to the meet, our artist Michael and installation leader Thanpa-ji, and everyone who showed up for the meet… in person and virtually on Instagram! Cliched though it sounds, I really think we can change mindsets and our impact on the places we visit if we continue working together ? . . #ilovespiti #theshootingstar #responsibletravel #wwim16 #incredibleindia
