A German couple that was using Instagram to try and solicit money for a trip to Africa, is being slammed and ridiculed by the Internet. Cat and Elena of the Instagram account Another Beautiful Day have requested more than $11,000 to help them go on a “huge adventure” to Africa starting in late July. According to the GoFundMe account that they set up, the couple is planning on tandem cycling from the “middle of Germany” toward “Africa and hopefully beyond”.
Sounds totally reasonable.
The couple didn’t give specific destinations for their journey and told people reading their GoFundMe page: “We want to take you all on this huge adventure. A celebration of life, as we ride freely across mountains, by the sea and through metropolitans. We will show the beauty of this planet and its inhabitants, but also the ugliness.”
