Just booked my flight for SteemFest 4

4개월 전

And committed myself to a five week holiday in the process.

I fly out on the 3rd Nov from London Heathrow to Bangkok, which coincides perfectly with a beer fest I go to every year in Surrey, this year on the 1st, so I can do BeerFest, recover, fly Thailand, settle for 2 days then SteemFest - NICE!

If yer humming and hawing about going to SF4 - don't - just go.

SF3 was just great - it makes the whole steem experience so much more authentic/ real if you like and @roelandp has organisational skills second to none so no doubt this one will be as smooth as the last!

If you can't afford it then look out for the various competions which will offer free tickets and there's also a travel reimbursmemt fund which cld help you with some of the travel costs.

Seems appropriate it's in Asia too, and it gives all us non-Asians a chance to take a longer holiday which makes sense if you've got a 20 hr flight!

I booked the return flight for the 10th December - five weeks is about the limit I feel I can stretch to and keep in touch with my teacher training job here in the UK (I know when I'm into a good thing!)

I would've kept the flight open but it was only another £100 to book a return over a single - Total cost = around £380 which I'm pretty pleased with.

I did find a return flight for low £300 but the terms referred to the company being able to change the dates so stuff that! Got to watch these things! I booked through Expedia as they've been reliable in the past.

Yet to book accomodation and not really sure what I'll do for the rest of Nov/ December - maybe check out a few Permaculture projects and/or find a nice co-working space near a beach, I'll still have to do some work but it'll be a damn site nicer than being in the UK in November!

Now it's just a matter of waiting and in the meantime obeying the second rule of steemit in summer and autumn - which is to bang on a lot about how great SteemFest is.

See you there!

Disclaimer - In case you've never met me I'm very nice, and I do have a pretty cool beard but besides that I'm not really that interesting or exciting, so don't get your hopes up too much!

Welcome to Thailand! What are you doing about a visa? You will get a 30 day exempt stamp upon arrival but you will need to extend it here for a further 30 days for 1900baht at an immigration office. OR get a 60 day tourist visa before you fly which is better and will stop you getting hassle from the airline when you check in at Heathrow.....any help advice anyone needs about visas etc let me know :-)

Cheers that is MOST useful!

My no 1 Q is...

What's the most effective way to prevent a bent airline worker smuggling drugs into my baggage on the return journey?

See you there, I will stay the whole 5 days :)))

Excellent!

Very cheap flights to be had if you get in early.

O damn, it is almost here. I wasn't able to attend last one but let us hope what will happen before that time

Wow, you're keen! I'm still pondering it. Will see how the finances go as I don't want to use up too much Steem on the trip.

·

I just slapped it on my credit card. I've got quite a few reserve funds I can choose from to pay it off end of the month.

I'm also planning in paying my tax bill in Oct so I can just add the cost of SF4 onto that!

Totally perfect fit for me that date and with my lifestyle.

People keep saying £380 is an amazing price. I'll take that! I wldn't know I don't fly or holiday much - it's quite possible Steemfests will be the only reason I do for the next several years.

It's not guaranteed. Time will tell.

Awe you're going - I'll just keep banging in about it 'til you concede.

I could go to the German camping event instead :)

and I do have a pretty cool beard

You do, I can attest to that fact. Am I going? maybe.

·

You're going mate!

Cash in that ETH you bought recently and that'll pay for one of yr flights!

Hmm I have a sad story about that particular ETH, but its not for public sharing. @goblinknackers is raring to go so I might just come too.

·
·
·

Sounds intriguing!

Also sounds like you've got the perfect excuse to go! Plenty of time to plan for a longer holiday too.

Those are great prices! I have to start looking although it is unlikely I can go whichbis frustrating for me!

If you possibly can I'd recommend it - socially it's great - economically it'll almost pay for itself with the number of regular upvoters you'll pick up.

Wow! You are staying for a month! Thats cool! I will start hunting with others on Team Malaysia soon...

Posted using Partiko Android

·

Yes fortunately I can work online, at least for half my income, so I can manage a month.

See you in bangkok @revisesociology.
I really wish I could stay there 1 month like you.

·

As long as you can make it for SteemFest, that's the important thing!

cool, so we see us at the SteemFest⁴ in Bangkok!
cheers! 🤠

£380 LHR -BKK return? That's a steal!

·

Not bad huh! All fees and 1 30KG baggage included. The flight was actually £48 - the rest fees and taxes.

Seems OK though - only one 2 hr stop over each way.

What!!!! Who are you flying with?

·
·
·

Depends who else is on the plane I guess.

·
·
·
·

ha :D

Well yes, what a good deal on the flight and with 1/2 income online you should be staying for the winter!

·
·
·
·
·

Not when my other half comes from face to face teaching in Birmingham! If I like it out there and the online stuff picks up, maybe I'll rent the house out at the end of 2020 and head back out there. Maybe!

·

·
·

Ahh, that could scupper things a little!

·
·
·
·
·

Besides, I quite like the UK in the winter believe it or not. November is actually my least favourite month.

·
·
·

Oh sorry, I see what you mean... Gulf Air.

That’s a bargain. Round trip to Bangkok under £400 is unbelievable

Cheers! People keep saying it's a bargain. I'm starting to believe it.

Wow. That's impressive that you're already sorted. 😱

I admire your decisiveness. 😁

I found myself online before breakfast so I turned it into non-procrastination!
