Jetset Christina will give you serious Insta-envy. She is a 24 year old recent college grad living in the San Francisco Bay Area. She has visited more than 50 countries and it seems that she isn’t slowing down anytime soon. What is special about Christina’s blog is her fantastic photography; she has an eye for seeing the beauty in every location and her images are filled with natural beauty, color and luxury. There’s an interesting calming aspect to her photography which you don’t often see, proving it is possible to relax whilst traveling and you can indulge in a little or (in Christina’s case) a lot of luxury along the way.
Appeal: Probably not for you if you’re traveling on a shoe-string budget and roughing it in hostels, but her rich photography will inspire you to capture the beauty in every moment.
