Imagine ditching your daily routine to travel the world endlessly. Italy today, maybe Marrakesh tomorrow — it doesn’t matter when your only priority is to go somewhere new.
Nick and Lins, a Belgian couple, have taken a leap of faith, opting to travel the world together. And they’re documenting the whole thing on Instagram as any proper traveller does. They can be seen lounging on picturesque, sandy beaches in Greece and trying their hands at farming in Malta.
But there’s one minor difference from this couple’s travel snaps when compared to the average person’s: Nick and Lins are naturalists, which means they spend most of their time in the nude.
The pair is “currently travelling the world as naked as possible,” according to their Instagram account bio, and if the photos they’ve recently uploaded are any indication, they’re definitely not shy about flaunting their privates!
“Sometimes it happens that people are walking towards us and turn around when they see that we are naked. Or that they pass by and are afraid to look up — in which case it’s always fun to say hello,” they told Metro UK.
Naked pilates in Greece, anyone?
It was nearly a decade ago when the couple first embraced naturalism while at a campground in Luxembourg. “At the back of the camp we noticed a naturist part which was all peace and quiet so we decided to try that out. And since then we’re completely sold to naturism,” they said.
The pair started researching “naturalism” online and could only find outdated information, so they launched their own website to help drive the movement into the future. “The main reason was to show people that naturism is something for everyone, not just for a bunch of old hippies or perverts.”
They stick to Balkan countries, like Croatia, Serbia and Bulgaria, which are generally more accepting of nudity.
The way Nick and Lins flaunt what their mamas gave ’em takes confidence, sure, but it’s also kind of infectious. Imagine how liberating it would feel to strip down without a care and just enjoy the body you’re in without any qualms. Our culture obsesses over every lump, bump and roll, and this couple is doing something so simple yet impactful by promoting body positivity to the world.
Before we even think about travelling the world naked, maybe we’ll try getting used to changing in the gym locker room first. Baby steps.
