Worldofexplorers is an Instagram page that is the fruit of the collaboration between two childhood friends, Alex and Kevin. We first met back in high school in Dubai 10 years ago and since have always kept in touch. We developed strong friendship ties through our mutual passion that is traveling.
Both of us were lucky enough to have expatriate parents which allowed us to spend our entire childhood abroad. Alex has lived for over seventeen years in Africa (Rwanda, Tanzania), Middle East (U.A.E) and Asia (Cambodia and Thailand), before heading to France for his graduate and postgraduate studies. Kevin has lived for over fifteen years in Africa (Ghana, Egypt, and Djibouti), Middle East (U.A.E, Qatar) and Oceania (French Polynesia) before heading to Switzerland and Spain for his own studies.
Having traveled the world several times before reaching our twenties, we have together been to over forty different countries and have had the amazing opportunity to capture moments from across the globe.
Our initial goal with Wordofexplorers was to create and share, through Instagram, a breathtaking time capsule of instants from our travels that would never end. The pictures we take are not the only graphic intended, but represent our “eye of the explorer”. We try to convey through each picture the beauty and richness we find in each specific location. Throughout our photo gallery, we aim to trigger emotions in our followers. We want our content not only to be appealing to the eye but moreover to wake-up the traveler spirit hidden inside every single one of us in order to make an explorer out of all of us. It is also for this reason that we named the page Worldofexplorer“s” as we believe we are all a community of travelers and our followers as much as ourselves explore the beauty of our planet together.
Worldofexplorers also has the additional goal of sharing knowledge. Each picture is accompanied by a fact linked to the city, region or country it was taken in. We try in our daily posts to constantly bring something new through fresh ideas so that our followers can always learn something new every day and with each picture. The subjects of the fact of the day, or “daily dose of knowledge” as we like to call it, varies from cultural or historical facts, to traveling or lifestyle tips, or even to fun facts or questions where followers are invited to participate in our community by answering the question.

We believe traveling should be something you appreciate not only with your body but also with your mind. Worldofexplorers enables each follower to extend their scope of knowledge and at the same time have some amazing pictures appear daily in their feed.
After 2 months operating, our community of Explorers reaches 9 000. We are very close to reaching our first goal we had set out of 10 000 explorers. We have been so far immensely pleased by the success and support Worldofexplorers has known since its launch back in May 2016. Our community of explorers has been fantastic and we make it our mission to personally respond and thank each person that leaves us positive feedback as a way for us to say thank you back to our supporters.
Sharing stolen moments and places as well as bringing authentic emotions to our followers has always been our number one goal and as long people enjoy our content, we will keep on posting every day!
In the long run, we hope to be able to continue sharing our travel pictures as well as feature some from our community. We have so much traveling planned for the coming year! It is going to be great to keep exploring new countries and regions and we can’t wait to share our experience with all of you. Meanwhile, for your daily traveling escapade, join our community of explorers from around the world on Instagram at Worldofexplorers!
