Meet Gandalf - a Siberian cat that may just put your Instagram travel snaps to shame. At the young age of 2 years old, Gandalf has already visited 2 countries and has travelled across 8 states with his loving owner - documenting his adventures on Instagram along the way. With his very own "Pawssport," Gandalf has big plans to visit his parents in New Zealand.


Currently residing in California, Gandalf loves the outdoors and exploring unknown lands. One of his favourite places he has visited thus far is Yosemite National Park.

A mighty roar or a yawn.. who's to say! After a nice walk in the snow, Gandalf is ready for a nap.

Gandalf was originally adopted in Korea where he lived until he and his parents made the big move to California. And he loooooves to travel in style...


With 11.9K Instagram followers, Gandalf continues to share his life changing journey as travels across the United States. Here he is pondering the meaning of life at the Grand Canyon National Park.


And in San Francisco...


Although Gandalf is an indoors cat, he loves nothing more than mixing it up and spending a little time enjoying the ambiance of nature.

Although he doesn't mind 'doing it rough' every now and then, Gandalf is a lover of fine fashion and sports an expensive array of travelling outfits fit for any occasion.


Reasonably open minded, he enjoys mixing with the locals and getting to know 'the real' people behind the destination he is visiting.


Gandalf is so good about traveling because he was exposed to life on the road from an early age. According to his owner, "We started taking him out with us since he was just a few weeks." For Gandalf, this is just the beginning and we cannot wait to see his New Zealand adventures to come.
