TimTravels - A Private Boat Tour - Part 1

3년 전

Hello and welcome to a new episode to TimTravels my Steemian friends!

Two more days and I will leave Greece, unfortunately. Although Crete is a very big island and I am sure I haven't seen all, I needed to try something new, something I haven't done before.
I wanted to a rent a boat!
So I looked out for a good boat and found a perfect skipper as well. A very nice guy who was experienced and had a good music taste. He told me that he is a lifeguard as well, so there was nothing to worry.

From this day on I knew I want a boat and have to get a license as soon as possible. I also drove few hours with the boat and it was such a fun.

It was quite funny that the name of the boat is Dolphin. Had to think of all the minnows, dolphins and whales on Steemit. What are you?

We left the harbor with an insane speed of 35 knots which is really fast when you are on water. It wasn't even the maximum speed though.

Seems as if they enjoy their ride. The great thing about the sea is that you don't have any tourists or crowds. Far and wide you nothing but water and nature. That's what I need these days to relax.

We came to a little island which was listed as a nature reserve for the preservation of endangered animals. It was an amazing view and I even got some shots of animals from a safe distance. We didn't want to disturb them.

We had a little break here and went diving. Many fish and corals awaited us but also lots of jellyfishes. I really don't like these...

I took more than 800 pictures on this trip and had a hard time deciding what pictures to post. I decided to split this post into two since it would be an overkill to upload too many photography in one post.

The second part of this post will follow tomorrow. There we will see some shots during an amazing sun set which was breathtaking. What name would you suggest for my boat? The best name will win 10 Steem! So be creative and tell us how you came up with the name.

I hope you enjoyed this episode of TimTravels and leave comment. Tell us what you love about traveling and get a shoutout in the next episode of TimTravels!
Steem on,

TimTravel a good documented tour. From his writeup he explain those nature with clear pictures and explanations. Tim you are good in writing and also a good reporter if I may say .


Me too! I am in love with this pics! Moreover the guys is enjoying his life to the fullest!


Wow!! This is beautiful! Cruising around Crete is exactly what heaven looks like. I LOVE the blue sky shot with the boat, the skipper, your lady and your SteemFest wristband too!!

And, TimTravels should be the name of your boat @timsaid!!

I've traveled to the boat yesterday


Nice pics. I liked how you played with the sun to create that light effect included in the pic. Since you asked for boat names, I went all the way to your introduceyourself post.. to see if there was something there!

All i could find was a broken camera story 😊 ( Unfortunately, I know that feeling.)Maybe that story was the turning point for you! Maybe the boat name shall come from that! Enjoy your last days in Crete.. looking forward to the second part!


This is very exciting
Keep up my friend


Yo tambien opino lo mismo de como enfoco la camara para hacer esos efectos con el sol, tambien espero la segunda parte!


Steem dreams is a good name for the boat. How about steemy dreamy, that way you'll also remember the steam coming up off the rocks, and so on, create a great conversation starter, and also remember your creations that financed it.


what a shit


Ship me one pretty please ? :)


Product placement haha


Haha, it seems like they are included in every post! :D


He is not the only one :) ïm curious to know how many people from last year will wear it in Lisabon, maybe Tim and me are the only survivors!

nice looking boat :)

My suggestion for your boat name is "Steem Dreams" Because I'm sure you'll be sharing those dream adventures with all your steemian followers. Have fun man.

Men, you got skillz.... @timsaid

hmm a name for you boat ... : Cryptopia because crypto make you rich enough to buy a boat :) by the way breathtaking pictures like always

"It was quite funny that the name of the boat is Dolphin. Had to think of all the minnows, dolphins and whales on Steemit. What are you?'

I'm not even minnow, more like a plankton. Maybe a sea flea. lol.

Beautiful pictures though, I love how you put close ups of that islet. Must've been an amazing experience.

"What name would you suggest for my boat? The best name will win 10 Steem! So be creative and tell us how you came up with the name."

Well, following on Walt Disney's tradition of using animorphic herbivores as superheroes (i.e. talking about Darkwing Duck or the Mighty Ducks). I'd say we follow in Disney's footsteeps while paying lipservice to the steem community -
The Darkfin Minnow

or how about -

The Mighty Minnow?


This is very exciting
Keep up my friend


Thank you! I always try to bring something into the table whether its value or humor.


May I suggest for the name of @timsaid's boat is "Upboat". I just noticed that he always amassed Upvotes whenever he posts his travels.


I like that name! And it even rhymes, nice.

i could see "STEEMFEST" wristband,haha

While taking another look at the boat. I noticed that its very sleek white, and you rented that boat in Crete. So another name I come up with is the Pearl of Crete. Plus pearls are found in aquatic environments, so they fit together.

How do you like that name?

Jealous. A couple of years ago we had rest close to Uranopolis (2 hours drive from Thessaloniki) and rented a boat. It is one the best my memories.

This is very exciting
Keep up my friend

I can tell driving that boat must feel very awesome


It was amazing!

Amazing boat trip :) No clouds in the sky, perfect day ;) The photos are impressive!


Thank you ergeko. I enjoyed the Cretan islands

You had a great rest @timsaid, went on a boat, diving and the most important shot 800 shots, and the best ones shared with us, honor to you and praise :) I'm waiting to see your boat!


Tomorrow's pictures will be even better :)

Passion ti own a bike or car always comes 2nd for me as compared to passion for A Monsterous BOAT

Awesome pictures @timsaid thank you for sharing! Very inspiring!


I would say boat's name to be Tim+Utopia=Timutopia, a utopia of life itself on Tim's boat! Well captured photographs :)

I really like your hand band. great idea!

Boat trip look amazing 🐳

"This is my ship...the Nebuchadnezzar, it's a hovercraft." In The Matrix, the crew of the Nebuchadnezzar is searching for Neo, whom Morpheus believes to be The One. When they find him, he is trained and taken to see the Oracle.

That was a fun adventure! Thank you for taking us on the ride of a lifetime! I'm going to have to go boating now... You have convinced me!

Name for the boat: Nautical Adventurer

I did enjoy reading your trip story and checking out the pictures you took :)

Very nice...... Have a nice trips.


Nice one :)

wow... !!!! very beautiful nature !!!

Amazing pics, Crete is a place I have always wanted to go, maybe on my 2018 tour stop haha! Nice wrist bands too Tim!

Breathtaking views of sea & sky. Both Sea & Sky are Blue. I must say you have taken some incredible pictures and by the way taking 800+ pictures is not a matter of joke, buddy.

Coming to suggesting the name for your boat, I think the ideal name of the boat would be "Blued". I got this name because it's all blue. Blue is the sky and so is the water. it becomes "Blue everywhere. I think simple and short. I hope u like this @timsaid

great shots!

One of the best posts ive had the pleasure to read on SteemIt. The way you took the pics, made the reader feel he/she was actually sitting on the boat with you! I could almost feel a cold beer in my hand...

TimTravels really was a fantastic tour I wished I would travel with you
I liked the surf ride with the boat

Common Tim, you never rented a boat before? ;D Since we are sharing, I wanted to let everybody know that I have never been on a boat o_o

Awesome shots , Tim .
Do you regularly travel with 2 women or was it just this time? ^_^

I have been to Greece this year, attended a wedding in a sick stone village somewhere in the mountains (Ano pedina) and then to Parga.
You should check Parga out, it's an amazing place (my blog will follow) .
It's very similar to Italy's Capri.


The blonde is my girlfriend and we just met the other one on Crete. Was just the day we spent together. I will check it out

Crete is a great place, I love the Greek island's!
I am in Corfu at the moment and sadly flying back to London tonight, but I have had a great 3 weeks.
The places I have been to and the food has been great, especially the seafood 👌
Anyway enjoy your last few days.

That's a wonderful experience I bet... For the name of the boat I suggest- "UpBoat"

Hey Tim, did I actually win the boat naming contest? I noticed the transfer. Thanks man

wow, a very beautiful place, amazing, with rocky coral, amid the blue sea, beautiful life you can enjoy the natural beauty of the original, I hope one day can walk like you, the world, that's my dream. amen.
Thank @timsaid. With your post,I can see other world.

The name for your boat : Cleopatra, I choose this name because she could make you fall in your first try 😆

I know how fun to travel using boat, but in my case... I used a traditional boat, in a rainy and windy day, some of my friends scare to the death, but it fun, especially when you can see island from your boat, the scenery really breathtaking.
I love your post, you always have a bunch of nice photographs.

Wow, what a life! I wish I would live that this. The photos are amazing! Can't wait for your next post!

Next time bring a fishing pole. This is the best thing to have on the water.

@timsaid better go to athena and shoot some photos there

Wow! You make me remember last summer in Mauritius, when we went to the beach in the morning to see dolphins, they was swimming very fast and jumping , it was unforgettable journey we passed it there.

Nice puctures👍

Photos are insane! Do you really need a proper boating license though, even for that dinghy? When exactly do you need one, I've always wondered?

You don't say...I also never thought of buying a boat before. Pretty interesting. Maybe I might start thinking along those lines, luckily I do have a license boat I obtained at work when I was still an employee. Guess I can put it to work huh?
