    This couple has turned their wanderlust into a career with the help of Instagram.

    Jack Morris, 26, and Lauren Bullen, 24, travel the world while promoting brands and locations on Instagram, making six-figure salaries, according to Cosmopolitan.

    Each has more than 3 million followers on Instagram, where they share breathtaking snaps relaxing in hammocks in the Maldives and eating pizza outside of the Coliseum in Italy.

    The couple, who has been dating for two years, earn up to $9,000 for a single post. According to Morris, he would not promote anything on his account for less than $3,000.

    Morris, who is originally from Manchester, United Kingdom, started jet-setting around the world after buying a one-way ticket to Bangkok when he was 21-years-old. Meanwhile, Bullen first started gaining followers taking photos around her home country Australia.

    They had each already been blogging their travels, gradually building up their brand portfolios, before they met while in Fiji for a job.

    “We got on so well from day one and were inseparable throughout the whole trip. On our last night in Fiji I asked her to come to Bali with me, she said yes and we’ve been together ever since!” Morris wrote on his blog Do You Travel.

    When not “working,” the couple lives together in Bali, Indonesia.

    Emm... There are a another couple doing just that on Mathew Woodward blog. I always wished to do that years ago but I hate taking picture specially for myself.

    But I wonder if they are taking money for posting then its not a review, or even worse, paid review. Where is exactly the value on their posting? Brand awareness

    Holy shit, $3000 - $9000 for 1 post? Can the advertisers even make a ROI from that?

    That is why I am an IG failure.

    I finally know the answer.

    Back to Myspace I guess.

    2.1 million followers. I'd say they probably could. Especially if they're promoting vacation packages or high-dollar travel things.

    Well I'm fucked then.

    Great article, @BassTrackerBoats. I'm making sure to include an Instagram profile batched in with the Iceland trip. I figure I will take enough pictures to drip 'em in (the ones that aren't shit) a few a day for at least a year.

    I hope they document the fight over who gets the Instagram account when they break up.

    "So what are you going to do about the children?"
    "AS LONG AS I GET THE INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT I DON'T CARE"
