How Chelsea Kauai Expanded From Her Small Adventure Feed To One Of The Most Popular Instagram Travel Accounts
Chelsea Yamase, best known on Instagram as Chelsea Kauai, didn't set out to be a travel blogger sensation. As Instagram was taking off, Chelsea started as most amateurs did—creating an unscripted, highly filtered, and minimally followed feed snapshotting her food. But with a little bit of luck, grit, and a solid network, Chelsea Kauai's once little-known feed has scratched its way to the surface of more than half a million Instagram users' screens. Her followers are entranced by Chelsea's world of adventure curated with an expert's eye for design, mind for creativity, and heart for authenticity.
In an attempt to quench her own thirst for adventure and her followers' desire for artsy, travel-filled depictions and lifestyle inspiration, Chelsea has built an empire that champions all that's natural in life. Partnering with brands like Canon, KEEN, and an assortment of National Parks services, she sets out to lead a more purposeful and less stagnant life by documenting her purest intentions.
We caught up with Chelsea to find out more about her journey behind her popular travel account and to see what's in store for 2019 in an exclusive interview.
