Steem has changed my life in more ways than one. Thanks to Steem, I am now a "world traveler" after ordering my first passport and driving on my own to Canada. This adventure has been nothing short of amazing because of the people I got to hang out with.
Yes, Toronto is a fantastic city with many sites to see. But, they don't mean much unless you are experiencing them with friends whom I now call family. Below are some pics of our adventure together in Toronto for the Steem Creators Conference North...
It was my first time in downtown Toronto, and what better way to spend it than with these guys (and gal, Jackie @jackieobermeyer) Rick @instructor2121, Brad @captainbob, Larry @larrymorrison, Jon @jongolson, Eric @anomadsoul, IJ @steemcafe, Jerry @bimjer.
IJ @steemcafe and I have been buds since the beginning of the Steem Creators journey early this year. Every time we see each other we can't help but smile.
Here we have a photo of myself and Jon @jongolson hugging it out, as well as getting to know other cool Steemians at the Meet and Greet in downtown.
Fish and chips was the first lunch that I ate at a local restaurant the first day of the conference. It was pretty tasty if you ask me. I also enjoyed the Indian food the second and third day (yes, I ate Indian food twice in a row cause it was so good)
We had the priviledge of hearing from the CEO of Steepshot, @pmartynov. He spoke about the current state of Steepshot and also his plans for the future. It was very informative and eye-opening. Silent Joe @joepate47 doing what he does best behind the camera.
A group of us went to visit the Goldmoney store where @par-ee was showing us the ropes. They handed out yummy snacks and we learned about the different services they offer. Jamie @eventspeaker, Joseph @josephsavage, Katie @katiesavage, Raven the cute baby, Larry @larrymorrison, Todd @toddmck, Amy @thehoneys, IJ @steemcafe, Jeremy @originalmrspice.
This here is my bud, Jeremy @originalmrspice. He wanted his username to be just mrspice but it was already taken. Had a great time getting to know him better during the conference as he is a very genuine and caring individual.
The SteemBirds @steembirds (Dan @dan-atstarlite and Jay @jaybird) performed for us each day of the conference. It was a real treat to hear their original songs all on the topic of Steem. Extremely entertaining and fun to experience.
Dookie Brown Flow @wolfnworbeikood performed along with his talented group of hip-hop artists. It was intense to say the least. Many meaningful words were spoken with a lot of passion and heart. Great job guys :)
There were more people that I were there such as Lea @coruscate and Mary @maryjaney. I had posted a photo with them a couple days back so please check out my blog for that. Should have taken more photos...@freedompoint and @freedomtowrite have our photos on their phones haha. I am anxiously awaiting our reunion again in Austin, Texas April 10-14, 2019. If you didn't make this conference, definitely save the date for the next one :)
P.S. Stay awesome today.
