Road to Steemfest | About my budget and how to get to Steem Fest 4 in Bangkok

in roadtosteemfest •  6 months ago 

Hello dear Steemians and all beautiful Blockchain people!


As I have mentioned already a few times (probably) I am going to attend Steem Fest 4 that will take place in November 6-10 in Bangkok.

So, this is the Steemit account of Steem Fest: @steemfest, organized on an annual basis by @roelandp. And this is the official site of Steem Fest: https://steemfest.com

In my previous post relating to Steem Fest I wrote about the Steemians who I would like to meet at the Steem Fest.

Now, let me tell you about my budgeting (the amount of money that I will need in order to be able to make it to Steem Fest 4 and to cover my expenses). Actually, I already wrote a very similar post before on this topic.


So, as I said before I expect to have approximately the following costs:
1) A hotel room. 250-260 SBD for accommodation/ a room in a hotel for 5-6 nights.
2) Plane tickets. Round trip from Europe to Bangkok. Approximately 550-600 SBD.
3) A ticket to Steem Fest!
4) Pocket money! In my view: 100-150 SBD for food, transfers, etc.

In total I will need minimum 900-1000 SBD and a ticket to Steem Fest.


Now let me tell you about my plans on financing my trip to Steem Fest and on how much I have saved so far ...

1 ) About the hotel.

In the first half of the year I was very active in Steem Blockchain! (Of course, I knew that I had to start to save money for Steem Fest in advance). So, I was able to earn some money just by steeming and in the spring I saved about 250 SBD. Of course I converted those 200-250 SBD into USD and have been keeping them on my bank account/card since April. By this bank card I booked almost 3 monthw ago a room in a hotel in Bangkok for 5 nights. So, I already saved money and booked a hotel in Bangkok.

As I said before I've booked a room in Prince Palace Hotel Bangkok on the site of https://www.agoda.com. I've chosen that hotel, because it is recommended on the site of https://steemfest.com:

And, also, I would like to say that in this hotel there will be many Steemians, so it will be really fun to be there!

2 ) About the plane ticket.

As I said before, in my previous post, getting from Europe to Bangkok will not be cheap ... And I thought that I would be able to pay for the plane ticket by bonus (flight) miles that I have accumulated so far. But, unfortunately there has no been any good deals for flights in November from Europe to Bangkok for which I could pay by bonus (flight) miles. So, this is a big surprise to me!

That's why it seems that I will need to buy a flight ticket if I want to attend Steem Fest. And the prices for a round trip in November are not cheap. According to SkyScanner, the cheapest tickets are about 420-430 EUR (or approximately 550-600 SBD):

The problem is that it is too expensive for me, because I remained without a job at the beginning of the year and because of it I have moved back to my home country Bulgaria from Moscow, Russia. Now, this is the only costs that bother me. I still don't know if I will be able to find/save money for the flight ticket ... Let's see what will happen! There are still almost 3 months ahead!

Important!
Almost 2 months ago @gtg wrote a post about "Exclusive discounts (up to 15%) for flight tickets!" for Steemians who are going to attend Steem Fest in Bangkok.

Now, as I will have to buy a flight ticket, I will check all those discounts that @gtg and @steemfest mentioned in the post and it would be nice if I find a ticket that is cheaper than 400 EUR.

3) About the ticket to Steem Fest!

According to the official site of Steem Fest (https://www.steemfest.com), these are the prices of the tickets to Steem Fest:

The cheapest ticket is 222.22 EUR. I have a bit over 1000 STEEM in one of my crypto accounts. I saved this money in May-June and prepared it for the ticket to Steem Fest. So, if I go to Steem Fest I will pay for the ticket by STEEM.

4 ) About the food (or pocket money)!

As I said before, last year at Steem Fest 3 in Kraków it was like "all-inclusive"! @roelandp organized the Steem Fest so well! In the price of ticket to Steem Fest was included almost everything! Everyday we had breakfast, lunch, dinner and in-between buffets (coffee breaks, etc.). There were a lot of food and it was so delicious. So, I hope this year will be the same. I say this, because I want to outline that a Steemian will not need a lot of money in Bangkok during the Steem Fest.

That's why I think I will need to have in my pocket about 150-200 SBD. I will need this money in case I have to pay for transport within the city, for some souvenirs, etc.

So, in order to save 150-200 SBD by the beginning of November, I am going to be very active on Steem Blockchain and to participate in almost all contest organized by @steemfest and promoted by @anomadsoul. I have so far in my Steem account a bit over 300 STEEM. So, I am sure I will be able to earn the rest on Steem Blockchain in the next 2-3 months ... The only problem for me (at the moment) is the flight ticket!


That's almost all I wanted to share about my budgeting for Steem Fest 4!
