“I figure, if a girl wants to be a legend, she should go ahead and be one.” – Calamity Jane
We’re taking a page from Jane’s book and planning our next adventures, and what better way to get inspired than with some of our favorite female Instagrammers? We’ve rounded up a list of our top eight accounts to follow, chosen not only by their insatiable taste for wanderlust, but also because these women have created close-knit communities for women in travel around the world.
