OneRooftop’s travel experts are champs of travel. When you text in to our live team of travel agents to find you a vacation rental somewhere in the world, you’re talking to people who love seeking out new adventures. And what do we do when we’re looking for inspiration for our upcoming trips?
We hit up Instagram.
When it comes to travel, Instagram is like a world book encyclopedia with photos and stories, and our team is wildly inspired by the platform. Here are five of our favorite Instatravelers. Follow their adventures and get inspired!

Murad is a world traveler and photographer whose Instagram series #followmeto has been a sensation online for the .

Over the last four years, Murad has followed Natalya to Bohol in the Philippines, Jaipur in India — even Platform 9 3/4 featured in the Harry Potter films.
Two. Chris Burkard: @chrisburkard
I’ve found that uncertainty is a key ingredient for living a fulfilled life. When we know every outcome, and it all goes to plan we ultimately kill any opportunity for adventure. Somewhere along the way we have to accept some level of risk to really have those life changing experiences. Thick ice covered the boat deck this morning aboard the @auroraarktika . The temperature was hovering below 20 F. We have been seeking out an unexplored coastline for waves in the Greenland sea. The chances were slim that we would find surf.. But slim is good enough sometimes @visitwestfjords @icelandair @timmyreyes

Chris has an attitude we absolutely love.
Be fearless, lead on into your own Adventure, explore the world. Even if that means diving into the Greenland Sea to surf around some icebergs….
Um…About that last one…
But really, photographers like Chris do inspire us to live out own adventurous dreams. Chris is more on the outdoorsy side, but browsing through his Instagram will push you to your own limits, in whatever style that may be.

Four. Jacintha Verdegaal: @urbanpixxels
Window shopping on a folding bike 😄. This is one of my favorite store fronts in London and while I was trying to take a picture, this guy came by, stopped, looked inside, and then moved on. I on the other hand did go in. It’s a super cute store!

London has 17.4 million foreign visitors on Oxford Street every single year. We understand the desire to go to London and see Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, and Tower Bridge, followed by a glass of beer and some fish & chips. We also understand wanting to see all the other beautiful sights London has to offer. Follow @urbanpixxels, a Dutch ex-pat living in London, to discover the anglophile in you.
Five. Taylor Pemberton: @pemberton

With the emotional intensity of Taylor Pemberton’s landscapes and portraits in south-east Asia, you’d think you might be flipping through the pages of National Geographic. Pemberton’s digital media studio, which he founded, sets out with the mission of making “the internet more human.” Check out his Instagram and his site pmbr.tn to see more of his work.
Thanks for getting inspired with us!
