How to mock Russian instagrammera ...


This story happened during one of the recent trips of our Russian girls to the Crimea. The very fact of such a journey is already a great excuse for hate speech online. But what started on the spot was just hard to imagine ...

The country should know its heroes, but in this case, the events were developing so revealingly that they really wanted to share this story. It was the first time I heard this story sitting by the fire with Masha Sayamova (murrmari), but here this text was written by Sophie Garayeva (sophie_garaeva) - another witness to the same events. So, how do blog tours organized by @knowhowmedia (Yulia Shchukina) actually take place, or the reverse side of beautiful photos?
Writes @belovalife
I want to immediately say that a blog tour is a job. You do not go on tour to rest. There is a written program, every day is scheduled by the minute. This is a business trip from which you must bring content for the receiving party and for yourself.Often on tours you sleep a little, because the program, for example, is until 9 pm, after dinner, and then you sit down to process photos and write texts to lay out the material for the next day, while leaving at 8-9 and getting up at 7 in the morning. Acknowledge that in order to work for several days at a frantic pace, you must have suitable conditions. We practically did not have them.
I will tell you how our blog tour to Crimea actually went.
The first day was a great success! We were met in Simferopol, and we went to Cape Tarkhankut, where we made a million and one beautiful shots, rode a boat, and then went to photograph the poppy field. In the evening we were brought to the hotel, and it was also wonderful, starting from checking into a room for 1 person and ending with a buffet where everyone could find food to suit their taste. On the second day # that is a complete mess. If the program of the second day was even more or less adequate, then you cannot say the same about the villa (is it legal to call that?)?
In the villa (?) We spent a long 3 nights. It all started with the fact that they settled three in one room. Nadia @tadaetadae and I slept on the same bed, and Masha @murrmari on the other, which was practically in the corridor (Nadia and I had a bed in the room, and the car was between the door to the room and the door to the exit, it was also possible to hang jackets) . There was no drinking water in the hotel.I do not know how to explain it, it simply did not exist. Also for all three days of our stay there, we have never cleaned the room. And yes, for three girls for three days, we were given 3 tiny sachets of shampoo. How to survive is not clear.
For breakfast we were generously served with either bare porridge, or 2 pancakes for each. Not much. And once we even just put before the fact that there will be no dinner. So, get out as you want. Given the fact that we did not live in the city, but in the village (I am not joking) Cossack, we had to send two girls by taxi to the store for food. You will say that these are whims and trivia. But when every day there is breakfast / lunch / dinner in the tour program and you don’t take too much money with you (in the Crimea, cards are not always accepted and only cash that no one really takes with them) is turned into a problem.
Next I want to tell you about the attitude of the organizer to us. For Daria, we were just a labor for food (ha-ha, and the food was not always the same, as you understood). There was no question of any human relation. In this regard, I would like to mention the penultimate day and our trip to Laspi. We were brought to Laspi in the rain, and as it turned out, to get to the cape, we had to walk up the mountain on foot. I arrived in Crimea not in my best condition, not yet recovered from the Altai.When everyone started to give out thin cellophane raincoats (it would be nice to add rubber boots to them, by the way, not one pair of shoes died while climbing Laspi), I refused to go and stayed in the car, and that was the right decision.
The girls returned in 1.5-2 hours, knee-deep in mud and wet through, and it turned out that the rain had washed away the soil and our car was stuck. And what do you think? The organizer just left at first. We were abandoned in the forest, without connection, with a stuck minibus. It took us 1.5 hours to get us out of this train, @belovalife and @murrmari pushing the car and the huntsman, who was running around the car like a chicken with a severed head.
As a result, Nastya @belovalife took us literally to herself. I do not know how much we would have been there, if not for Nastya and Masha.
But that's not all. Next, we waited for the last day. Honestly, by the time I dreamed of a house. No, no, the Crimea itself struck me with its nature, but what really is there, I fell in love ❤ just the organization of our trip left much to be desired.
On the last day, a conference awaited us, where some of us lectured. Entry cost 5,000 rubles. Even for Moscow, this money is not that small. And the people came more than.It’s just that our wonderful organizer decided a little more (or is there still a lot?) To earn some money for us.
I felt just like meat on this tour. They brought us in order to earn money for us. We work, and in the end we get this attitude. And in return, very much waiting for the words of gratitude. Thanks I can only say for our team, for their support and mutual assistance. Girls, thank you so much, without you from the trip there would not be a single good memory

Masha @ murrmari
Masha herself adds:
We began to resent even during the trip because of all these jambs, and especially at the end, when we learned that we had earned a lot of money from the conference, about which we already learned while blogging. After the conference, one of the organizers, Daria, published a post on Facebook about us, in the comments to which we were called non-literary words.
After that, we collectively refused to send photos to the organizers, who even before the trip asked each blogger to send 30 high-resolution processed photos - besides, we did not sign the contract. They waited 5 days and scribbled letters with promises to take us to the next blog books in July, August and September, and also wrote,how much money they spent on us. Without waiting for the photo, Julia sent us a threatening letter and this was the last straw.
Starting today, we are launching a share of honest reviews about the work of such tour organizers, it will be possible to find feedback on hashtags.
There are two goals for the action. The first: to expel unscrupulous baryg from the industry. The second is to tell what blogging should and should not be. We hope that other organizers will listen to our words and take into account other people's mistakes.

And completing the story is another top member of the Instagram community:
Yulia also raised money for participating in her blogging. Chat 70 bloggers from instagram - that's it, half of them are willing to pay. Even we were ready to pay 5 thousand to go to Japan or to the Seychelles, and why not)
In short, the girls did not give her the material, for which she, in turn, wrote all the known contacts to her in Greece, Cyprus and other countries, so that they would not take them to any other tours - this is such a garbage.
Actually, there is simply nothing to add. This is such a bullshit, young girls manage to meet, tempted by the chance to see something new in their own country.The most amazing thing is that a person walks, works, and no one bothers to write honestly about what is happening.
