Ibn Battuta, one of the greatest travelers of all time, quoted – “Traveling… leaves you speechless, and then turns you into a storyteller.”
He surely was a storyteller. But in this hum drum of modern world, we struggle to find time for traveling but social media like Snapchat makes it is easy to enjoy such stories and such moments through pictures and videos shared by our friends. Snapchat, the self-destructing messaging platform that Facebook once tried to acquire, is the new social media bae that’s driving youth with its uncensored and raw features.
The live story feature is the icing on the cake. It gives the user an insight into the lives of their friends, favorite celebrities and top bloggers. Among them, the favorites are travel bloggers who inspire, make you laugh and let you see the world through their adventures.
Here is a list of the most inspiring travel bloggers on Snapchat:
