I have recently started an Instagram account for this blog. Previously I used my personal Insta account, but I always felt a bit awkward posting too many pictures on there. I also had not told (still haven’t) to a lot of people that I started a blog. I guess I still feel a tad awkward about it, but that is a whole other story for another day.

So today’s post is going to be a little bit different then what I normally post, well not a little but a lot. You know that I normally spend hours researching and writing posts, but today I got a little frustrated with Instagram and I thought I would write you a quick post on how amazing (if I say so myself) my Instagram account is and why I think you should follow me ASAP. Unless you are a bot… like  90% of the accounts are on Insta nowadays.  So upsetting because it used to be such a cool site.

I have been traveling for almost all my life. I have been to loads of amazing places and I am planning to go to many many more. I have always loved taking pictures, so for years I have taken my DSLR camera with me and I have taken loads of pictures. I never had a platform to post them on though.

So, if you follow me on Instagram you will get to see a ton of amazing travel pictures from loads of my travels. Think of Netherlands, France, England, Ireland, Italy, India, Singapore, Mexico….. and many many pictures of Australia.

I try to mix it up a little and show you some different things each time I post. What you will not see is an overly polished and ‘faked’ pictures. I will not be posing with ridiculous props, over edit my pictures or put myself in every single picture.

You will see ‘normal’ travel pictures, normal pictures of me (not a lot, I don’t really like taking pictures of myself) and non-staged pictures. If you like that kind of stuff then I am your woman.


Pretty much every weekend I go out and about to take pictures for upcoming posts. If you follow me on my Instagram account, you will stay up to date with what I am doing. This will mostly be done through my Insta stories.


All my new posts are linked in my Insta account and are promoted by either a normal post or a story. So again, if you follow me, you will stay up to date with all the latest blog news.


Finally, it means the world to me to have you as a follower. Having real people following me and engaging in my content truly means the world to me. Since I have only just started my Instagram for Bondi to Basic I get a lot of bots and follow-unfollow people.

I don’t really understand why people feel the need to do that, but that is up to them. I don’t follow people that are not in my niche, so if I get a follow from someone who is a tattoo artist or whatnot, I will probably not follow back.

If you are a travel blogger and you want to connect, leave a comment below. If you follow me send me a message I will follow you back. Pls travel blogger only. If you are just going to unfollow please don’t bother either, that ain’t cool. If you don’t shoot me a comment I might not follow back, because I don’t know if you are a real person or just another bot.


So if everything you just read sounds awesome, then click on one of the many links in the post and give my blogs Instagram a follow. You are a superstar.

If you decide not to follow, not a worry, I still think you are awesome for reading this post and I hope you will come back to see what I post in the future. I post about 2-3 times a week.

Thank you and have a wonderful day

XX Manon
