Of all the places on the internet, I think Vine is one of the very best for discovering new places and getting the inspiration to see the world.

But as is the case with any social network, you have to follow the right people to get the most out of it. So, here are five recommended follows for anyone with wanderlust.

Jonathan Look, Jr.

Look’s vines are some of the best, most explicitly travel-oriented I’ve found yet. According to his bio, he “retired early to pursue my passion for live, adventure, writing and photography.”

Noah Kalina

Kalina’s vines often look like paintings; they tend to be very still, with just slight movement. They’re also often pastoral scenes, and are among the most visually beautiful and curious out there.

Matthias Lüfkens

Lüfkens’ vines present beautiful European scenes in a straightforward, journalist-esque style. He often uses a series of quick shots, which make the six seconds of video feel surprisingly expansive.


One of my all-time favorite viners, Danorst is a Los Angeles-based videographer. His vines tend to show cities, often LA, through mind-bending special effects. Pretty much everything I’ve seen of his has been stunning.

Browsing Rome

As the name implies, this account is all about Rome. Though there was a dry spell for much of the year, the account has recently begun reposting images of a part of the world that is sort of impossible not to love.
