Instagrammer kisses strangers at famous landmarks

Posted by Anita Froneman on 2 December 2019

Some romantics may dream about sharing a kiss in front of some of the world’s iconic landmarks and many couples do have beautiful pictures taken while kissing in front of the Eiffel tower, for example. However, travelling alone introduces some challenges if you’re a romantic dreamer. One solo traveller came up with a solution: Just ask a stranger!

Instagram influencer Kristiana Kuqi travels the world and asks random men to kiss her in famous places for her Instagram account. She says that she doesn’t keep in contact and that she informs the men that it’s purely just for the purpose of the picture, a fun and spontaneous moment.

‘As a woman, asking men for a kiss with no intention of falling in love or keeping in contact is powerful in a way, and breaks the stereotype that women are hopeless romantics just looking for love. We want to just have momentary fun, too,’ she told Travel+Leisure.

Responses to her actions have been mixed, with some people admiring her courage and fun-loving nature, some sharing concerns about possible health risks, while others offered to be the next stranger to pose in a kissing photo with her.
