Why Travel Loonies?

This is the story of how we choose our name and why we decided to be on Instagram.

Let’s start with WHY INSTAGRAM

We have been traveling for more than 15 years now. Except for two sea cruises and an escape to Algarve Portugal, we have always planned our trips alone, from the small details to itinerary, flight tickets, accommodation and activities. Almost all our friends and people that knew us were always amazed by that and asked us many details about the adventures.

We posted pictures before on a personal Facebook account, but a dedicated  travel Instagram account seemed like the perfect place to share our experiences to the world.  In addition, not once, our friends on Instagram told us that we should be on Instagram. So there we are :). 

Now, CHOOSING THE NAME was a quite an easy process… One day we said  “let’s go on Instagram”. Then, we questioned ourselves of what represents us, how our trips are? 

It was clear that we were crazy about traveling, so this is where the Travel from Travel Loonies comes from.
Being crazy about traveling, it is pretty clear how we came up with the Loonies :)) Simple like that. 

We hope our stories will inspire you to just travel and make your own stories to tell.
