Travel Influencer Francesca Murray Keeps It Real

Remember a time, not long ago, that we would board on a plane and travel for travel’s sake only? We can’t either. These days, we get out wanderlust fix mainly from Instagram. Our recent go-to is California-based travel influencer, Francesca Murray.

With almost 50k followers on Instagram, Murray has a solid audience, the majority being millennial women from the United States. A proud Afro-Latina with Honduran Garifuna roots, Murray is passionate about traveling—at least when traveling is possible.

Fluent in French and conversational in Spanish, she runs a travel blog titled One Girl One World, where she shares more of her experiences (the stories behind her viral photos on Instagram). Recent posts include a guide to Planning the Perfect Girl’s Trip to Barbados and How to Get Paid to Teach English Abroad.

“Life is a journey, and I’m excited to help you live yours out loud!” she writes on her website. “Be it finally embracing your natural curls, perfecting you skincare routine, or traveling solo for the first time—you’ll be sure to find the inspiration and resources you need right here.”

These days, you can catch her exploring more corners in the US, road tripping, and sharing her thoughts and recommendations online.
