Insta couple ask followers to pay for their hols cos they don’t work


While us mere mortals struggle to scrimp together our pennies for our holidays,  it seems that others don't think like the rest of us.

A husband and wife who run an Instagram account together ruffled a few feathers by announced that they want their followers to fork out and fund their trip. 

The couple, Catalin Onc and Elena Engelhardt have set up a GoFundMe (yes, really) to raise enough cash for a cycle from Germany to Africa.

Their reason?

It's to help others with their mental health issues.


You're not the only one.

The couple is looking for 10 grand to cover bikes, accommodation, food, sim cards, insurance, and emergencies.

Catalin lives with his mum, who works two jobs to support him – and people are  p*ssed off with them asking other working people to pay for them to travel.

Their response to getting a job?

They said, ''Some will just tell us to get jobs, like everyone else and stop begging. But when you have the impact we do on others’ life, getting a job is not an option. We could model and make fast money, but we don’t want to advertise consumerism. A normal job at this point would be detrimental.''

People have come out in force to slam the pair.

One said, ''Your mum works two jobs to pay for your trip, don’t you think that’s impacting her mental health? It’s sad this isn’t all a joke, the self-importance you have is ridiculous.''

While another wrote, ''You guys are doing literally f*ck all for anyone’s mental health other than feeding your own narcissim.''

What do you guys think – are they delusional or helping people?
