A pretty good week at @ocd for me: 5 posts curated out of 6 curation days! :-) There were some really lovely ones, like the post where you can learn some yoga poses from a chair, but I have to say, this week I have a true favourite: the post where @its.parth.hey shares his story about preparing for climbing the Mount Everest. I've seen some pretty horrible footage of underprepared climbers, so I admire how serious he takes his journey - as everyone should, but almost no-one seems to do.
Kuddos to you! And for all of you who'd like to support newbies: take a look at the curated posts below and share some love!

Dozens of pictures of Angkor Wat, a place that was build without machines - but is incredibly big with lots of different structures and architectural details. @gratefulayn describes her visit to this place as a humbling experience, feeling every inch of effort that went into building it pouring into every inch. With the extensive amount of pictures that come with her story I really feel like I was there!

An extensive and intense read about how @its.parth.hey prepared for climbing the Mount Everest! Strength training, yoga, meditation, healthy diet are part of it, but also a resistance mask and overall smart hiking gear/light packing seems to be part of the recipe. After a lot of negative news reports about under-prepared Mountain Everest Climbers it seems like this smart Steemian actually did a lot of preparation. Congratulations!
