Live Free

by Syd Briscoe


Booking.com: “Freedom” - 20s

Booking.com's latest iteration of its 'Live Curious' campaign celebrates the variety of feelings inspired by travel - from major emotions like 'freedom' to the simple relief of having washing machine access when caring for an adventurous child.

The wide range of experiences depicted throughout the series are bolstered by a diverse cast, which emphasise a truth not often highlighted by holiday companies: not every traveller is young, rich, or able bodied.

Thus, this instalment - which sees a bloke in a wheelchair gleefully careening down a hill - has an added layer of joy to go with its Dolly Parton soundtrack. With accessibility and fun paired front and centre, this forward-thinking campaign stands out from the crowd.
