MANILA – We’ve seen the selfie, the food shots and the countless sunsets on Instagram. This time, several users are showing their bare backs in a trend that is said to heighten the feeling of adventure and freedom when traveling.

From London and the Swiss Alps to Washington, Hollywood and New York, Internet users have been posting topless travel photos on Instagram for everyone to see.

An Instagram page, aptly named Topless Tour, has been dedicated to collecting and posting submissions of people’s travels with bare backs. To date, it has over 23,000 followers.

According to a report from CNN Travel, Topless Tour was started two years ago by friends Olivia Edginton, Lydia Buckler and Marstein Olsen in London.

“It simply just happened, no planning involved,” Edginton was quoted as saying.

After sharing their topless poses shot against various backgrounds, they encouraged others to do the same. Soon, the photos poured in.
