SNAPCHAT HAS BEEN ALL THE RAGE lately with its real-time storytelling and fun filters, but take a look at how these full-time travelers take it to the next level by snapping stories from all over the globe!
I’m a full-time solo traveler who happens to take pretty cool Instagram shots with my GoPro. But, let’s be serious, getting those photos usually isn’t glamorous at all, which is why I like to use SnapChat to show the behind-the-scenes of my travels, and also to do Snap-Tutorials on my cheap travel tips and tricks! I’ll be snapping from Southeast Asia all of May!
Matt from Expert Vagabond has been traveling full time for 5 years now, and shares his crazy adventures from around the world in real time. Recently he was snapping the Northern Lights in Norway, Mayan ruins in Mexico, and is currently snapping around Havana and Trinidad in Cuba!
Anna is quite literally, always everywhere. Her Snapchat ranges from a variety of entertaining things, such as capturing the behind-the-scenes life of travel bloggers, random cute animals, and her ever-impressive skills doing aerial. Right now she’s also snapping from Cuba!
Drew from The Hungry Partier is basically a professional Snapchatter who has literally mastered the art of Snapchat story-making. He frequently plays games with his followers, like giving prizes to people who snap him back, and is currently snapping his adventures in Indonesia. Next he’ll be taking you around New Zealand, Fiji, Vanuatu, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, and Vietnam!

Alicia from Alicia Explores was basically born to be in front of a camera, but likes to not make her snaps all about her and often includes her friends and innocent bystanders. She’s witty AF and seriously hilarious, so you’re definitely guaranteed to go always go on an entertaining adventure!
Tom from Travel Tom Tom also uses Snapchat to show what’s really going on during his travels instead of just looking at his beautiful Instagram pictures (I’ve seen them, they’re pretty great). He goes from 0-star to 5-star hotels, sips cocktails on rooftops yet has beers with locals, and likes to do fun activities like cliff-jumping, snorkeling, and mountain climbing. Right now you’ll be able to see him snapping from Thailand!
Edna from Expat Edna is a serial expat who has been bouncing around Asia and Europe for eight years, but now travels from a home base in Paris. Her snaps will introduce you to delicious eats from around the world, from fine wine in Paris to craft beer in Japan and night markets in Taipei. Warning: Do not watch when hungry!
Janet from Journalist on the Run is a quirky full-time traveler from Ireland who is literally always on the run! She recently did a two-week trip on the Kerala Express in India, and is now snapping around Thailand and Southeast Asia!
Lee Abbamonte has been to every country in the world (#nbd) and says he loves using Snapchat because it gives an unfiltered look into his daily life; both traveling and at home. He likes to do a lot of commentary during his travels, and also tends to throw in some pizza, sports, music, and emojis. Lee is currently snapping from Eastern Europe before traveling to Longyearbyen where I just was in the Arctic, where he’ll be departing for an expedition to the North Pole.
Anna Kate from The Legendary Adventures of Anna has a vibrant Snapchat packed with her exciting solo travels around the world.

She’s currently snapping from Japan!
Gloria from The Blog Abroad lives on the road and uses her Snapchat to share a range of things; from what she sees and experiences while out and about exploring, or simply doing her day-to-day rants and musings about life. She’s pretty freaking hilarious, especially when you see her unfiltered and in real-time on Snapchat! Right now she’s snapping away in Greece!
Will from The Broke Backer is currently on an impressive four-year backpacking adventure which he’s doing without the use of flights.

Right now, he is driving a psychedelic truck across India, and snapping the whole way!
Steph Be from Travel Break likes to show the behind the scenes of her travel experiences which consist of adventure, lifestyle, and culture.

Steph is currently snapping her adventures from sunny California!
Scott from Intrepid Escape aims to inspire people to travel through his own travels, which he’s been doing for quite a while now. In fact, when I asked him to send me a few snaps, he wrote back that he was casually searching through his phone for some while at La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona! That being said, you can currently catch him snapping from Spain!
