My New Obsession: Snapchat
Snapchat has taken the world by storm over the past few months, even though it is 5 years old. You can use Snapchat to chat with friends, share photos, make videos, and create your own story (that lasts 24 hours before it automatically disappears) which is shared with all of your friends. I am officially obsessed with Snapchat (melodytravels) and want to share my favorite part of this social media app with you.
The coolest feature of Snapchat is seeing the awesome selection of Geofilters that a location offers. Geofilters are area specific related overlays that decorate or jazz up your photos to share where you are. Think of it as a built-in postcard, but with fun colors, scenes, and fonts.
This post contains some of my favorite snappers and travel related Geofilters they have used in their stories. I warn you, Snapchat is much different than other social media platforms and highly addictive.
My Favorite Snapchat Users and Their Travel Related Geofilters:
Cailin O’Neil- The master of travel snappers- I cannot get enough of this gal! She is so relaxed on camera and a pleasure to watch. I love how down to earth she is and she goes fun places!

Jenn Weatherhead Harrington- I had the pleasure of meeting beautiful Jenn in NYC and she has a fun, quirky sense of humor and travels to very fun places. She is the social media manager for Hello! Canada.
Brianna Simmons- Brianna is a favorite blogger of mine, traveling and writing about the east coast (Virginia Beach and DC areas) as well as international trips. In her spare time, she is fixing your aches & pains as a physical therapist.

Jesper Black- Jesper is a fun Dutch guy, transplanted to Barcelona, who has a way with the camera, has great hair, and tells hilarious stories. He keeps me amused with his antics (and accent!) and is freaking adorable, reason enough to follow him.

Intrepid Escape- Scott is entertaining, a great speaker, and most of all, very relatable. He would be the best teacher ever and I’m sure he would have a future in narrating books on tapes should he ever so desire. Scott’s travels take you with him to amazing places around the world. I could watch him 24/7.

Emily Luxton- Emily is a travel writer and blogger, focused on slow travel. She and her friends have so much fun that it makes me want to be 20 years younger so I could attempt keeping up with her. Do not let her fun side fool you, she really sinks her teeth into her travels to share with her readers the real stories that lie beneath the surface.

Lizza Monet Morales-OMG, I am so freaking gaga over this little gal. Lizza “with 2 Z’s” is so optimistic and energetic. Her passion for social media and sharing her life on camera is natural and you will find yourself loving her instantly. She is a social media sensation and involved in all sorts of projects including TV and film. #lovebugnation
