I am someone who loves to travel.
And if you do travel often, you will try to avoid seeking travel advice from big travel agencies like Flight Centre. This company is great example where you cannot purely trust their recommendations: maybe they have been paid by another company to recommend a particular place, maybe they are choosing places at random so that they do not have to do so much work. In other words, they purely operate for a profit.
Travellers want recommendations from individuals who have travelled simply for leisure. That way, there is no ‘company’ to manipulate their advise and recommendations of where to go. Luckily I recently found exactly that…
As I was scrolling through my Facebook news feed not long ago, I came across a post saying that a girl travelled by herself around the world. 197 countries in 18 months, at 27 years old, and her name is Cassie De Pecol. What’s even better is she mentioned her favourite countries to visit from her amazing worldwide expedition.
Us travellers can now sleep easily at night, as this is exactly the kind of travel advise that we want. Thanks to social media, I was able to find out about this girl and her experiences from travelling around the world.
Do you prefer seeking advise from large corporations like Flight Centre? Or are you like me and prefer advise from sole individuals? Please leave a comment below.
