Contiki, a company specialising in youth travel, has launched the ‘Sixties Suitcase Challenge’ to celebrate its 60th birthday. Insights by the company showed that retro travel is very much desired with 82% of those surveyed in Australia saying they are keen to have travelled at some point in the 1960s to 1980s.
Based on this insight, Contiki did the only sensible thing it knew to do: Challenge a Gen Z to travel to Europe like it’s 1962. The Gen Z in question is Australian TikTok creator Millie Ford who is sent a retro suitcase filled with a polaroid camera, paper maps, an AM/FM radio, and sixties clothing among other era-relevant items.
Ford stumbles around major European cities unable to read a map and uses a physical guidebook to help with language translation. As much as Ad nut enjoyed watching Ford brace these modern-day trepidations, Ad Nut also wishes the video committed fully to the 60s cause without Ford checking in with a selfie every so often.
