“To be an adventurer, you must be prepared to be broke, isolated, in awe, lonely, overwhelmed by beauty, tired, energized and in flux. – Shamit”

Scrolling through your Instagram feed, you can’t help but get hooked on some accounts especially due to their constant nudge for adventure through their posts. Here are some of my favorites:
