In any case, our carefully curated Instagram grids, full of lush Airbnb homes and landscapes with the ever-trendy “fade” filter applied, seldom mention how much the plane ticket to Byron Bay cost or who’s financing our Alternative Break to Myanmar (yes, my parents paid for that too).

True story, and no wonder I turned off my Facebook and stopped following friends on Instagram who post only for the gratification of those “not brave enough” or those that already have. In amongst all of this, there is a sense of a loss of how lucky this millennial generation, how “rich”, in the wider and narrower sense of the word, we are, that we have such freedom to travel.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
