Our big trip to Madrid is only one week away! While we are ecstatic to be going on a much-needed vacation, it means that we won’t be on a regular posting schedule for two weeks between August 6 and August 19. We know that you’re all just head-over-heels in love with our content and will be simply lost without us while we are sucking down sangria 24/7, so besides checking out the site for the few great posts we have queued up in our absence, you can now follow on Instagram and Tumblr!

We’ve been hesitant to launch a travel Instagram since up until now we haven’t been physically traveling all that much — but this long trip to Europe was just the impetus we needed! We’ll provide a steady stream of great pictures from Madrid and anywhere else we may end up (two weeks is a long time to stay in one place), and after we return we will continue to post photos from our travels as well as pieces of travel inspiration we find in our home base of New York City.

On our brand new Tumblr page you’ll find past and present Travel Freak posts as well as reblogged images, videos, and text from other travel bloggers that we love. It’s a little bare right now, but don’t worry, we’re currently playing around with the “queue” feature to set up bevvy of posts to be published while we are away from a constant Internet source.

Two brand new ways to keep up with Travel Freak during our extended trip and beyond. Exciting stuff!

How to Follow Travel Freak on Instagram

Instagram is available on iPhone and Android, and it’s free to download. Once you’ve signed up, search for us by username by entering “TheTravelFreak,” and click the blue follow button. If you like the beautifully filtered photos we put up, like them (by double tapping the image or hitting the “like” button) and leave your comments!

Side note: if you’re looking for other great travel bloggers to follow on Instagram, check out this list from VickyFlipFlop — we followed them all, naturally.

How to Follow Travel Freak on Tumblr

Go to our Tumblr page and have a look around. If you like what you see, look up in the right hand corner of the page to find the “follow” button and give it a nice press. For those of you who don’t have a Tumblr, click on the “join Tumblr” button next to the “follow” icon, set up an account, then come back and follow us.

If you don’t have and don’t want a Tumblr, you can still keep up with ours by going to the URL directly — www.travel-freak.tumblr.com!

Are you on Instagram and/or Tumblr and want Travel Freak to follow? Let us know your username in the comments and we’ll check you out!


Steven tried out for The Amazing Race one time and was denied. We're not saying this is why he started this site, but it may have been a contributing factor in his decision to explore the world online and share his travel inspiration with others.
