Social media has definitely been one of our saving graces through the pandemic. Whether it’s entertaining reels, or influencers sharing old travel photos and videos, we’ve definitely been putting our future travel bucket list together.

In an effort to help you plan ahead, or to simply escape virtually for a bit, we wanted to highlight these pages keeping the post-pandemic travel vibes going.

Not only does Sammy give us post-pandemic FOMO, but he also drops super helpful info from his past experiences. It’s definitely the silver silk shirt for us.

Nikki aka @wheredidnikkigo

This Queen does not miss, ever! Every time we pop over to her feed, we are instantly inspired. She’s literally been all around the world, and now we’re ready to do the same.

Kena Peay aka @kenapeay

We’ll admit, we took Washington State and parts of California for granted all these years. But Kena has shown us not only how beautiful the areas’ natural backdrops are, but that you can also whip up an amazing meal in the middle of a hiking trail. Who knew?

Jeff’s consistent display of ‘Black Boy Joy,’ has us falling in love with nearly any destination he posts. As an advocate for chubby and fat people who want to travel more, he’s inspiring an entire community to feel more comfortable in their own skin. We salute you, sir.

Squad Travel aka @samesexquadtravel

We love to see it! Every community and group needs a safe space. So while they bring us dope travel photos, they’re also sharing places where Black LGBTQ travelers will feel safe and welcomed.

Barrington Scott aka @bj.thetraveller

Barrington, a former U.S. Marine, is now living his best adventure travel life in Australia. From scuba diving to hiking, backpacking and something called microlighting— we’re officially ready to add some new activities to our bucket lists.

Jonathan Curry aka @thejonrobert

Jon now considers Tulum to be his homebase, but he definitely knows how to curate visually stunning content, no matter where he is in the world. Based on what we’ve seen, it’s all in the outfit. Note taken!

Francesca aka @onegrloneworld

This California-based travel and lifestyle influencer has spent a significant chunk of the pandemic in beautiful Martinique. From stunning reels to shots like the one above, you can guarantee we’ll be looking up flights to go when it’s safe.

Niche D’cali aka @niche0812

Niche gives a healthy mix of domestic and international options for us to choose from, but this photo alone let us know that Honduras is a definite future must-do.

Laolu aka @lifeonabanjo

Not only does this Texas-based traveler provide the travel views, but she is also putting us up on game for the food spots. What’s a great trip, without even better food? We’ll wait.

Shakeemah Smith aka @thepassportabuser

Whether she’s giving us ‘Black Girl Magic’ in Sintra, Portugal or big queen energy in Accra, Ghana— “Keem” is for sure prepping us to have our social media content in order. Keep it coming.
