10 small and beautiful Insta travel accounts for you to notice

The world of Instagram is quite special and fascinating to learn about. Just like in the real world, in many cases there is no correlation between the value and the level of recognition. My own proof of this is one and only of my photos on Instagram that I have posted twice: first soon after having started my Insta account in March, and then eight months later, in December. The second time, the same picture got ten times more likes than the first time around.
So I wanted to introduce 10 small and beautiful Insta travel accounts for your notice and liking. What were my criteria to define them as small, you may ask. They post their own pictures with over 200 (in some cases 100) posts, and have fewer than 7000 followers. Their accounts are listed in a random order.
