Steemfest 4 : Save the date

Yesterday @roelandp announced the location and date for Steemfest 4. While I had heard rumors about it going to be somewhere in Asia, I wasn't really thinking about it much yet. I decided let's just wait for the announcement and take it from there. I've never been to Asia, so when the announcement was there, and I read it was going to be in Bangkok, Thailand, my first reaction was: "I'm not going to Bangkok by myself!". But then I looked at the hotel, and suddenly FOMO appeared, and I was thinking about all these cool online friends I was then going to meet in person (finally).. so I thought let's book the hotel. As there is always that option to pay later, and cancel for free for a period of time, this was the opportunity to book a room. My first thoughts were, maybe otherwise the hotel will be full, but then @elsiekjay mentioned the site saying there are 800 rooms, so that's probably not going to be a problem this year..

My first thoughts were, I will see if I can go

But I have to admit that I've already been looking at flight prices earlier today, to see how much exactly this is going to cost me if I can make it happen. I didn't like what I saw, not perse the prices, but more the non-direct flights and many hours it will take to get to Bangkok from Budapest. I don't think the initial thought of just bringing boyfriend and daughter will work out looking at the prices and flight times. I mean, I'm not a huge fan of flying, and after 2,5 hours or 4 hours max, I'm pretty done with sitting in an airplane, I can imagine that my 3,5 year old will not fancy sitting in one for that many hours either.. So if I go, I will probably go alone. Financially that's more doable, and logistically as well. I hope by the time flight tickets can be booked (need to save up lots of cash first) there will be a travel buddy who will keep me company..


My boyfriend says I need to go

He also pushed me a bit to go to Steemfest 3 last year, but I didn't want to go there alone.. Poland wasn't a country that I was interested in going to anyway, so that didn't change. But now, Thailand, Bangkok, wow.. I need to let it sink in a bit I guess.. Boyfriend always travels with me, and so does the little one, I actually would not want to have an experience like that without them, this is something I want to share.. But if I decide to go, I have his blessing, and he will take care of the little one during my absence. And yes, I know many of you Steemians travel alone, but you get it right? It's something new, and I'm not sure if I will be brave enough to explore new grounds like that going to another continent, more than half a day away by plane.. Luckily, the announcement came in early this year, so I have plenty of time to think about it, and plan my trip if needed.


Who's going for sure / maybe / not

Let me know if you're going in a comment please, and if there is anyone traveling from Budapest, I'd like to know as well.. because you never know... ;)

I'm really doubting whether I'd go. I can probably pay for it, but getting the blessing from my girlfriend will be another story.

@slobberchops is also going alone this year, so you won't be the only one ;)

·

But but but, I thought you already arranged the part of the ticket (in the chatgroup you mentioned something..) so then you HAVE TO go :)
And otherwise she may join you? And hang by the pool? Not the worst place to be, I guess..

I'm very very fortunate that my boyfriend is almost forcing me to go lol, but he can stop pushing me as I already decided, I"M GOING! :)

See you there! ;)

I might make it to this one.

·

Yes, I read the visa thing is a lot easier over there.. so that would be awesome if you'd be there as well!
Where did you go all that time? Everything ok? I haven't been following everything myself either, so I might have missed some things as well..

But hope to see you in Bangkok!!

Haha you and the Curie's .. good work takes time, right?
Let's chat tomorrow, if you have the time.. I'm super tired now (it's not that late, 10 pm only) as I've been preparing a lot of things today for my project. I've been writing a lot of things .. super excited (will tell you when we chat) but also exhausting as I keep seeing new possibilities :) lol..

Congrats (again) on the Curie hehe :)

We should charter a plane. :)
I bet we can find 50 people in the Cro, Hun, Slo, Serbia, Bosnia, Austria area. :D

·

Lol if only :) Steemfest Plane.. maybe @roelandp can make that happen lol

·
·

Haha. I was being humorous. Charting planes is generally more expensive then commercial flights. 😁

The thought of going alone also make me very nervous! Hopefully I will find a travel buddy in the next couple of months😃😃

·

Haha have you ever travelled alone? Where are you located? @lordbutterfly just had a brilliant idea.. maybe you can join ;) then we only need like 47 more ;)

·
·

Hahaha 47 more people? WoW! Fill me in when you have the time will you? Maybe I can help😁😁😬

I have travelled alone once, way back when I was much braver😅
I'm in Nairobi.
