GIVEAWAY: Hostelsclub + Ostello Bello = 'Belli Together'!


Win a trip to Berlin, Prague or Barcelona with your favourite Travel Buddy... because Travel has no gender!

Close your eyes, take a deep breath, dig through the memories: what was the moment in your life when you felt truly free?

After finishing your studies, when you moved to a new city or when you put an end to that troubled relationship... the answers are potentially endless, but we are sure that at least one of you is thinking about that wonderful journey he/she took to discover the world with new eyes.

Universal, brave, unique, unpredictable, surprising, different. Travel doesn't discern between race or sex, or take age or economic limitations into consideration. We travel to forget, to find ourselves, to rest, to give someone a second chance, to broaden our horizons or find a lost friend. Traveling means having the strength to step outside your comfort zone and dive into the unknown, where true beauty lies in what one does not know, in what is not yet ours, in what we could have been but we never became.

Travel is shifting, it takes on many different faces and welcomes a thousand of different sides; cultural, emotional, ethnic, social, sexual, historical, geographical. It is one of the most comprehensive and shareable human experience and, perhaps for this very reason, one of the most loved.

It is precisely to promote the universality of traveling that Hostelsclub and Ostello Bello joined forces to give life to the "Belli Together" giveaway, the Instagram competition that celebrates diversity in every shape and form, the first one being sexual diversity. The initiative aims to reflect the spirit of Pride Month, while hundreds of cities throughout the world are still enveloped in the rainbow colors of the LGBT community. To remind us that if there is no geographical boundary that cannot be crossed, there must be no feeling that cannot be accepted. Woman or man or in between, if love has no gender... travel has none either!

After all, what is love if not one beautiful journey?
