Earlier this year my lovely blogging friend and fellow GetOutside Champion Zoe, over at Splodz Blogz posted about her favourite Instagram accounts and it was such a great way to come across some accounts I’d not followed.With the new pesky algorithm it can be so much harder to see photos that you want to see, and follow people that you want to follow, so I thought I would follow Zoe’s lead and share 20 of my favourite instagram accounts and the ones that keep me inspired to live my most adventurous life!
1. Ordnance Survey – @ordnancesurvey
The heads of the #GetOutside Champions, creators of outdoor memories, ruler of the maps that we use almost daily and also full of inspirational scenery and trig point views!If they can’t inspire you to #GetOutside then nobody can!
2. Zoe aka Splodz! – @splodz
A fellow GetOutside Champion (and the one I stole the idea for this post from) her Instagram feed is full of beautiful scenery. She also champions #OneHourOutside so if you’re not already involved, then what are you waiting for?!
3. Ben – @bensnapsstuff
I can’t remember how I came across Ben’s instagram feed, but it is just packed with inspiring photos of people running in the great outdoors. My physio has finally signed me off to start running again and so his feed keeps me super motivated! On top of this, next year he’ll be part of a team crossing the 700km frozen Lake Baikal in Siberia!
