I am pretty late in discovering pinterest for my travel inspiration and planning. And this even though I have been creating boards and collecting scraps for ideas and tips all along. Only in real life. When you travel, that gets a lot harder and heavy to carry around, so I am super happy I have now my pinterest boards – and they are growing a lot! But of course, there are so many other boards out there and the ones that help me the most and you need to know about I will now show you. So log into your pinterest, start following and get pinning!
Imagine if your mom used pinterest as an organisational tool for her thoughts and plans, this is what you get with Traveling Moms: A great overview of all things you usually forget but need to take care of, such as travel snacks, fun on the road and necessary girl getaway tips. A lot of boards to choose from, starting with travel advice, the basics and over to specific destinations.
If you want a clear structure and boards organised according to types of travel, Dale & Franca from Anglo Italian have a neat selection for you. You will get a neat overview of all things travel, such as travel photography, travel with kids, slow travel and budget travel, to name just a view. Whatever kind of travel you are thinking about, they certainly got you covered. It is easy to spot what you want with the clear look they’ve got going. Well done!
Suze from the Luxury Columnist will get you travel dreaming of yachts, fancy hotels and waters so blue, you feel like diving right into your computer screen. Instead of doing that (ouch!), get inspired by her pins and plan your own getaways. If you think you can’t afford this, there is even a board entitled ‘luxury for less’. See, everything is possible.
Sarah from Journey to Design will not only show you bucketlist-worthy places but is searching for beauty and art across the world. Scouring through her pins, I am inspired to go out and open my eyes walking around, capture more street art and unique photography.
To merge fashion, travel and great composition, I head to Conde Nast Traveller. It’s like a digital scrapbook of all the things I love to see in fashion and travel magazines. With its many pools, you can take a look at the classic fashionista cities, such as NYC, Paris or London, daydream yourself away to pools all over the world or get some fashionable tips for stylish travel outfits.
Rachelle from the Travel Bite should be the travel and food pinterester of choice for all fellow foodie. But not only will you find recipes, coffee and wine pins but also tips on packing and souvenir hunting. She basically got you covered all around your travels. All you need to pick now is a destination.
If you have to stay put at home for now, there is no need to get sad or lost in your travel dreams. Instead, why not pretty up your home, look at colourful boards and maybe get into blogging yourself to start a life that gives you more independence. Melyssa from the Nectar Collective offers amazingly helpful and happiness-inducing guides and tips on how to do it.
And hopefully I can inspire you to travel more and better as well through my collection of personal stories, travel destinations which I use for my own inspiration and planning as well and my many group boards on Travel on the Brain. In case you want to join and share photos with me, let me know and I’ll send you an invite. And if you want to join the ranks of us professional pinteresters, I recommend reading up on the basics to use pinterest for your business and I’ll even throw in a $15 voucher so you can enjoy 2 free months of tailwind pro (the first month is free as are the first 100 schedules and I absolutely recommend giving it a try and even upgrading to pro!).
