Hello From SteemFest in Foggy Krakow!



The SteemFest banners are waving in the breeze outside the Qubus hotel window this morning. It's just about the foggiest day I've ever seen, though that may be normal for Krakow, I don't really know.

I really do not like traveling, and this is the biggest trip I've taken in my life, but luckily my wife was nice enough to come with me and tell me to shut up when I complain about it. In any case, I'm very much looking forward to meeting many of the people I talk to and work with on a regular basis and talking Steem!

I'm also looking forward to my interview with @andrarchy on Day 2 of the conference (Friday) about the business aspects of building and growing a successful app, which I think are often overlooked in the blockchain space where the focus is often on technology and hype.

For those of you who are at the event, please stop by and say hi! I'll be one of the two guys wearing a Steem Monsters shirt :-P

UPDATE - The fog actually lifted quite quickly and now it looks much better! Here's an updated photo:

Looks more like smog than fog!

Is there a gym at the Qubus?

Don't fancy my chances running outside in that soup!

Hey Matt! Just going through my app and saw your name come up. Brought me to your page and following you now. Steemfest was something else wasn't it? You guys did an awesome job and are bringing so much to the table. It was great meeting you and your wife on the first night on your way to the bathroom as I was leaving....my "Fellow Americans!"

Funny how you wrote you hate to travel, as that's my comfort zone; but it seems like you were probably so busy you may have forgotten where you were!

When you gave me that extra monster card pack I didn't realize it had monetary value until the following day listening to your presentation. I ended up giving the card to @gillianpearce. She appreciated it and is a monster fan never thinking she would like such a thing.

As much as I'd like to get into the game, I'm hanging at a pool right now in Tropical Northern Pai Thailand, and just have so much computer time I can allow for myself.

I hear rumor next year's steemfest may be in Bangkok, if so, give yourself a week afterwards, to really enjoy the country. It's my favorite country in the world, Thailand. I could show you guys around or just give you some advice on where you and wife will truly have an incredible time.

Just wanted to stop by and say hello. Checkin' in from a little Travel Pro Paradise Hot-spot! I'll catch you on the other side! -Dan


Thanks again for the card @world-travel-pro. It was much appreciated.

I'm glad to hear you've arrived safely in Thailand and are already hanging out at the pool! 😁


You're welcome Gill, I'm glad you can put those cards to good use!

you sure it's fog or is that STEEM!

Have a great time at Steemfest! Just want to stop by and give my congrats for making it to the top 20 witness ranking. Woohooo!!!!!!

The Krakow Fog!

Thank you very much for supporting my post. A lot has changed for the better since I learned about the NFL reference in your name. Also, I was a massive SC Brood War player, so I jumped out of my seat when I heard about your upcoming game release. I found @aggroed right away to learn more. Nice speaking with you.

Thanks for sharing @yabapmatt ! great photos , glad the fog lifted ! Hope you and your wife enjoy steemfest and Krakow ! I really hope to go some day in the future!💕✌👍👌💁
