  Comment: Watch out Europe. Winter is coming. And so are the Australians In recent years, the annual exodus has reached staggering proportions. So have the accompanying social media posts. The specific migration patterns change from year to year. Ever popular places such as Paris and Rome are being edged out by the new destinations like Croatia and Lisbon.And it’s no longer enough to take a couple of happy snaps in front of the main tourist attractions. Photos of you pretending to hold up the Leaning Tower of Pisa just aren’t going to cut it.

a man standing in front of a brick building© Provided by MediaWorks NZ Limited A Belgian travel blogger has received death threats among other abuse after posting an image of himself posing among ancient Roman ruins.

Self-described "full-time globetrotter" Nils Travel was forced to apologise for the image, which featured him modelling on top of a pillar in Pompeii's Basilica.

Many took him to task for perceived disrespect of an ancient archaeological site.

"What a freaking idiot, you are a smuckster, your arrogance as a modern foreigner shows how little respect you have for a sacred Roman relics area of the dead," one commenter wrote.

"The original blogger needs to understand that these ruins are over 2000 years old and so are very fragile. Just by sitting on the structures, you are damaging it and if anything is destroyed then it's lost forever," another said.

  This Travel Blogger Learned the Hard Way in Pompeii That Ancient Ruins Aren't Props for Instagram Photos A Belgian travel blogger has received harsh criticism online after posting a photo of himself sitting on top of an ancient column in Pompei's ruins.According to the Daily Mail, the travel blogger, who goes by the name Nils Travels on social media, posted a photo on June 1 sitting on top of an ancient pillar at the Pompeii ruins. In case you were unaware, climbing on top of sites like this is not only disrespectful, but also forbidden.

Maluma's post garnered 1.3 million likes and 28,500 comments, such as 'Did you ask how many Palestinians she killed before posing for a photo with her?” and 'Posing with a member of Israel's killer army'.

In the past, I should have been more specific with my clients in explaining to them why guests should be told no photos . I have been to a number of weddings and civil ceremonies over the years and people taking photographs or videos cause no end of disruption.

Rather than take the post down, Nils Travel has kept it up "so it can be a lesson to others".

"I sincerely apologise to everyone who is offended by this photo," his edited post reads.

"I love travelling from the bottom of my heart, it is what drives me and feeds my soul, and to read the often nationalistic and xenophobic harm and death wishers I have received over the past 24 hours hurts me to the core."

Some followers found his apology sincere, while others lashed out.

Nils Travel has since started a PledgeMe page for people to donate to the heritage site "as a sign of good faith".
