A pair of Instagram influencers are being heavily criticized after asking their followers and members of the public to fund their vacation.
Self-described "lovers, travellers, dream chasers" Catalin Onc and Elena Engelhardt run an Instagram account called Another Beautiful Day Official, where they have 34.8k followers.
The couple recently announced plans for a tandem cycling trip to and through Africa from Germany — but they asked their followers to help raise €10,000 ($11,215) for the vacation.
They continued: "But we can not do this on our own. We need you!"
