Trip around the world - who are we?

Who are we?

Hello, we are a couple of travel enthusiasts (Dominik and Dari) who were mostly armchair travellers and until now only dreamed about places they would love to visit.
When we figured out how many places we want to visit, we concluded that five weeks of holiday a year are simply not enough.

What do we do?

We plan to travel all around the world starting in July 2017. The whole travel will take around 2 years. We quit our jobs, but we are not leaving warm office space because it would have bored us, exactly opposite. We do enjoy our work, but we enjoy travelling even more.

Now, we are preparing ourselves for the trip. We do build our blog, explore modern platforms (like Steemit, Flickr, Instagram...)

We dream about traveling the world, observing bears 🐾 on the lake Baikal, finding parts of the Great Wall of China 🏰 that are not overcrowded by tourists, taking a close look at eight-thousanders in Nepal 🌄 , being shut down for a few weeks in a monastery in Indonesia 🏯, tasting all the flavors of Asia 🍜, staying up whole nights in the Amazon rainforest 🌴 for fear of spiders and everything that wants to eat us 🐜, passing Andes from south to north or vice versa 🌋 .

Why steemit?

We would like to use steemit as a platform, where we can share the content which we post to our Blog. I am not sure if posting the images from Instagram is a good idea, but we will find out later 😎
Other idea we have is to redirect our blog readers, who would like to donate anything to us, to steemit. So now I am exploring some "donate" button or "support author" button 😃

More to follow later 😎

Big Dreams create a great life :-)
I was sailing around the world, but got stalled out in Panama. I stopped to buy some retirement land, over 10 years ago ( life is like that )
I'm going to blog about my knowledge of Panama and finished my first 1 today.

I found some sites years ago Sailboats around the world Looking for help and company on there boats ! very cheap way to get around and explore many places. Most pay all expenses, some want food contributions etc...

·

That is great idea. Are these the big old wooden boats like for 50-80 people? Or did you see some smaller boats as well? That is really good idea.

·

Mostly small person boats, My first trip was from Florida, a older man had bought it for a good deal, but never sailed. I spent a month getting it ready, Invited a Dutch lady friend, Plus a older Scottish woman answered the ad and came too. Only 30', so we got to know each other quick :-)
I became Captain, and off we went. ( that's a several large blogs ) maybe later :-) Just search the net for ( crew wanted )

·

Thanks and maybe one question, what for do you usually use the mentioning, like @royalblue?

Welcome to Steemit!

·

Thanks, I hope I can enrich the content here by the articles we will write from our travel. I see you share a lot of photos, do you host them on steemitimg?

·
·

I use postimage.io works pretty well!

·
·
·

Thanks, I will try it. I was first thinking that maybe I can use one of these platforms (which is built over steem) to store my photos. But I am not sure how these works, so until now I use probably Flickr. Need to read more about Steem underlining technology, to understand if it is even possible to store e.g. whole album.

You just upload from your computer/device and then it's "stored" in Steemit!
