Another brilliant entry for the 2015 D&AD New Blood from: Kimberly Ong, Akarad Tachavatcharapa, Zarina Mendoza and George Widodo, who study at Art Center College of Design.

So instead of the ‘generic’ process of travelling, which is to choose a destination and hotel, hostel, or bread and breakfast, you choose who you want to be.
