Santa Maria volcano, Guatemala – Matthew Karsten, otherwise known as The Expert Vagabond, has been traveling the world since 2010. He left his job and girlfriend and hit the road, but the adventure only really began in Guatemala.
"Hungry for a wild adventure, I recruited fellow travelers to join me in climbing a very active volcano called Santiaguito. We reached the summit just in time for it to erupt with smoke and ash. From then on, I was completely hooked. Travel addict for life."

Tamarin, Mauritius – South African Gareth Pon is Africa's best-known Instagrammer, and his camera skills have taken him all over the world. But it's his mother's homeland Mauritius that he holds closest to his heart:
