Hoping to go to Steemfest Bangkok this Year!
I love Thailand and specifically Bangkok! I'm so happy [steem fest](https://steemit.com/steemfest/@roelandp/save-the-date-steemfest-bangkok-thailand-6-7-8-9-10-november-2019-let-s-go) will be there this year!
I have gone to Bangkok 2 times in the last 3 years, I love the food the vibe and the people, well except the no-meter taxi guys, I don't like them 😅

![IMG_7431.jpg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmPebu5oJANy2XRCPajx43wSiqic2aVGPgVr1T1n8NU14k/IMG_7431.jpg)

I'm going to try and post more to justify going to steemfest because right now I can't really justify the huge expense of a holiday there since I have not been really posting anything, honestly, what I would love is to pay for the trip in steem but I don't think that will be possible at the current rate, but one can hope, haha 😄

![IMG_7437.jpg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmfL7GFLgkECSnyHh93fcfpcjbwtpZZjJ65CxM9eQF34K4/IMG_7437.jpg)

(dunno why this picture came out sideways... it was upright in the computer. 🙄 

BTW, these pictures are from my last Bangkok trip in September, was a great trip, these pictures may seem a bit random I hope you enjoy them .

![IMG_7167.jpg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmaXYoVt6Aex5fpT153d9RmADXHp1UnRHqbYa9fBgB3RKQ/IMG_7167.jpg)

 Dunno how the electric grid stays working in Bangkok with that mess 😂

My Road To Steemfest # 1 | My journey to Steemfest 4 | Bangkok
<center>![My road to steemfest 4 header.png](https://files.steempeak.com/file/steempeak/anouk.nox/Lte5FFAT-My20road20to20steemfest20420header.png)</center>

## The Steemfest-madness has started
Although previous years I've only been following the madness from the sidelines, and I must admit, a little bit of jealousy last year when seeing what was going on at Steemfest as well. But no regrets, last year wasn't my time yet. This year it's different, as I marked 2019 as my year, this is the year I can't miss it. And how can I when it's in beautiful Thailand? After my first doubts were blown away by my boyfriend pretty quickly (thanks babe for your never ending support!) and also some chats with other exciting Steemit members that I would love to meet (finally!), I started to see all the benefits for me personally, instead of thinking about the hurdles to get there and while being there. I mean, I still have this little toddler at home, that I normally take care of when her dad is working full time, so the first thing I thought was: how will that work? He can't take a week off from work so that I can go to Steemfest? 

## Then I realized: SCHOOL!
Although it's not something that keeps me busy daily, I realized at that time she's going to school. Which will, of course, make my boyfriends weekdays a lot easier. Meaning, he can try to make a temporary agreement with his employer about working from home. He is allowed to do that 1 day a week soon, so my thoughts were that he can ask if he can spread the working hours from home over the 5 schooldays. And if needed only take a few hours of paid leave to make sure he's on time to get her from school. I'm confident this problem will be solved pretty easily, so from now on it's not a problem anymore in my head. 

## Behind the scenes (or blogs in this case) I'm planning a lot of things
Next to the personal hurdles I need to take and things that I need to arrange to get to Steemfest, there's also this financial part that's keeping me busy. I'm trying to balance these things out at the moment, so I won't focus on one thing for too long, and still feel that I've made steps forward at the end of the day. So far so good. One thing that I really hope is, that we still will manage to have our family trip to Lake Balaton next month, it has nothing to do with my Steemfest journey, but more with the weather gods being nice or not. At the moment the weather is not as we hope to have when we go to the lake. Although our trip last year (with wind and rain 2 out of 3 days) was still awesome, this year it will be that single trip to the lake only, and we decided if the weather stays as unpredictable as it is now (read: RAIN RAIN most of the week) we will cancel it until another opportunity comes along in July or August. I still hope we can make it happen somehow because next to my Steemfest excitement, I'm also very excited for us to go on that short family trip. 

## Micro fundings for Steemfest
To fund my way to Steemfest I thought of several micro fundings to make that happen. I have to be creative to gain funds because the trip isn't going to be cheap. And as I like doing a lot of things, I'm trying not to bet on one horse to make it happen. This will also make sure that I can't get bored trying to fund my way to Steemfest, because I can shift my focus when I feel like it. I have to work out the details for the things I thought of, but one of them is trying to see if I can draw/paint some postcards and see if I can sell them online and offline in my area. These amounts will be small, but every little bit helps in the end, right? 

## My focus can't be at Steemfest 100% as my project is on my priority list
Once I'm doing writing out the project completely, including a planner of everything I aim on doing in the next months, I will be writing more as well. At the moment I'm also writing full time but you can't see that yet, some things are still top-secret.. Nevertheless, super exciting, and I will be happy when the time has arrived that I can finally tell everyone what I've been doing in secret. Ideas keep coming in, and I'm basically working out all of the ideas in writing so I have a nice overview for myself. Although I've had my own business in the past, this is actually the first time that I'm writing out the complete plan for my project, including longer term-goals. Now's the time as in a few months I will have loads of extra time during weekdays, so working this hard until daughter actually goes to school will give me a nice head start once I can fully focus on this. 

## Curious to read who is also going to Steemfest for sure this year
Of course I've read several people confirming they are willing to go, or hoping to go. But who's making it happen for sure? Are you as determined as I am? And what are you doing to make it happen? Or are you in the luxury position that you already have the funds to go? 

With that, the end of part 1 of my series blogs about my road to Steemfest has come to an end. I will try to update about the progress at least every week.

STEEMFest - Travel Reimbursement Fund - Weekly Fundraiser - May 22, 2019
<center>

![](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmcX2kC7dLaxWZEmoYRbFE1ueKt5ykNnG9NUM3bm3JsWqg/image.png)

### STEEMFest - Travel Reimbursement Fund (@t-r-f)
**Weekly Fundraiser**
*May 22, 2019*



The @STEEMFest Travel Reimbursement Fund (@t-r-f) is a fundraiser that helps support those that travel to the annual @STEEMFest extravaganza from around the world.

I have attended the last two @steemfest trips and I have participated in the @t-r-f reimbursement program both times. It's a wonderful way to give rebates to attendees based on the miles they traveled. @t-r-f has helped me to make @steemfest affordable for the past two years. Now I would like to give back.

Each week I will make a fundraiser post to support the @t-r-f. All liquid rewards earned from these posts will be donated to @t-r-f. This will be a nice head start to help grow the pot for next year's @steemfest attendees.

### Upvote This Post to Support @t-r-f!
*See you at @steemfest!*


  **Amount Raised: 9.483 STEEM & 3.035 SBD**

STEEMFEST - Is Bangkok calling me?
We recently knew the SF4 location and the world started sending me signs 😉

I was watching TV earlier today. I randomly chose an episode of "Bizarre Foods: Delicious Destinations" and it was about Bangkok! 

![image](https://img.esteem.ws/93ng4va5ji.jpg)

 ![image](https://img.esteem.ws/fv0udzksd3.jpg)

I know the food is famous there and now I'm really curious...

STEEMFest 4 - Bangkok, Thailand - November 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 - 2019

# [STEEMFest 4](https://steemfest.com/) - Bangkok, Thailand
**November 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 - 2019**

Last week was exciting for the STEEM network. @roelandp announced the location and dates for the fourth annual @steemfest extravaganza. STEEMians from around the world will take a pilgrimage to the city of Bangkok, Thailand in November, for a week of conferences and off-chain fun.

As of now, [the official website](https://steemfest.com/) is up and running. The main hotel called the [Prince Palace Hotel Bangkok](https://steemfest.com/#hotels) is situated on the Khlong San Saep canal. AirBnB living arrangements are also very inexpensive in the area. [Click here to sign up to AirBnB and save up to $40 on your first trip](www.airbnb.com/c/jjagoe)

The speakers, conference agenda and ticket prices will be announced at a later date.

I highly recommend STEEMFest to any avid user of the STEEM Blockchain. @roelandp and the @firepower crew put on one hell of an event. I hope to see you all there! (*I'm already booked*)

![333333.png](https://steemitimages.com/DQmV53wJNx7D4FADp2cMWqnVttp59zTZo8acWXeSgCHgeP9/333333.png)

In 2017 I made the decision to travel alone to Europe to attend STEEMFest 2 (first time solo-traveling & first time in Europe). At the time of arrival, I did not personally know anyone else attending. I admit I was a bit nervous/anxious at first. But after having a drink or two I eased up and left Lisbon, Portugal with a plethora of friends from around the world. 


Last year we rendezvous'd in Kraków, Poland for another round of @steemfest fun. From the epic days of conferences to the closing dinner in the salt-mines of Wieliczka, there is no better put together conference in all of the crypto-space.

The conferences were loaded with quality information and the venues were top-notch to say the least. I learned a lot about new STEEM-based projects and met many people working to build them. It's a time for STEEMians from around the world to get together and share ideas to help each other *and help the platform* grow.

Okay Guys, I might be the most excited person this coming Steefest lol... I am feeling like it's just around the corner so I am doing everything I possibly can to make sure I am ready and on time. I hate last minute struggles and also, I wanna see how the Visa Process is going to be like.

Spent the day replacing my documents. I have no idea where my National ID is so I will have to reapply for another so I can get my passport renewed. Talk about getting Steemfest Ready!! :D

SteemFest⁴ Bangkok, Thailand...Should I go?
The good news is that SteemFest⁴ will be happening in Bangkok, Thailand in November...
I would love to attend and this requires so much planning on my side.

![](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmeyBFJMNvht5X9DLb1UiPFTKXcEbWXtgS8Htd2SXfzt3r/image.png)

I am thinking of attending. So far these are the flight options.

![snipping1.JPG](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmbe9m9t5G6kgXWWF8UyxNmBJm55W2ziTUrjwzsfcPuKaD/snipping1.JPG)

As you can see the flights are about 60 Euro if I book now.

The main issue will be the visa application process which I need to research on, passport replacement and then accommodation.

I also know that this will be a better venue for East Africans to travel to.

Re you going for Steemfest 4?

Let me know down below.

Who is Going? : SteemFest⁴ Bangkok, Thailand
![steemfest4whoisgoing.jpg](https://files.steempeak.com/file/steempeak/jacuzzi/68I0qVNl-steemfest4whoisgoing.jpg)

# Who is Going? : SteemFest⁴ Bangkok, Thailand 

Perhaps you missed it, but this years Steem Fest is November , 6/7/8/9/10 2019 in Bangkok, Thailand! WOW! 

Here is the original announcement : 
https://steempeak.com/steemfest/@roelandp/save-the-date-steemfest-bangkok-thailand-6-7-8-9-10-november-2019-let-s-go

**So amazing**. I am looking at funding and running the numbers to sort out ways to get to that part of the wold, places to stay and transport that wont break the (*already strained) bank account.

**From the states (ATL, GA), it looking like:** 
- Flight : $1400 ish
- Housing 6 days : $400
- Meals : $100 ish
- Flex funding (fun money) : $200 ish
-- Total estimated needed : $2,200 ish

Very excited to meet others on this platform in person and make some good connections!
This is also an event I would like to attend as I am invested into Steem and would like to see if take off.

- How many of you are planing on going?
- What do you think your travel costs will be? 
- What are you most excited about at this conference?
- Want to shoot me $2,200 uplike so I can attend?

Steem is going places so lets go places with it.  

Cheers!

Six Day Track Cycling Shenanigans
<center>   
***
# It's All Kicking Off In November
***
The recent announcement of the dates and location for #Steemfest4 have left me in a bit of a quandry.

The trip to Thailand takes a minimum of 20 hours from here so it's not something you can just fit in but, rather has to be well planned. If I'm flying that far then I want to make more of a holiday and a longer stay of it.

However, that's going to be a bit tricky since we've already got tickets for the 6 day event in Ghent which takes place the weekend after #steemfest4.

It is a special birthday present for John as he hit his 60th a couple of weeks ago! &#128561; Consequently, it's not something we can change our minds about and reschedule as other relatives are booking travel and accommodation for us.

As if that wasn't enough, a couple of weekends later and we have a big family get together for John's mum's 90th birthday so it's all a bit tricky to fit in, especially for John who has limited holidays he can take.

I'm not sure if we'll manage Steemfest as a result but either way let's get back to to the original topic . . .

I love road cycling but, as a spectator, it can be a bit of a non-event in that the cyclists are there one second and gone the next. Much better to watch it on the tele, most of the time or live at the velodrome.

One of the things I love about track cycling is that there's plenty of time to enjoy the spectacle.

One of the most colourful and exciting spectacles on the calendar is that of the 6 day event which is held in multiple European venues, and for party atmosphere is in a league of it's own.

[![6 day event.jpg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmPsTh2RfBvAHtuuQEgTU5U1cA8QfAtYjspfACfDBGancs/6%20day%20event.jpg)](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmPsTh2RfBvAHtuuQEgTU5U1cA8QfAtYjspfACfDBGancs/6%20day%20event.jpg)

These pictures are of the London Velodrome in between races.

[![6 day event blue.jpg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmZbdvMLLTZRErnnWsTGSWmZYxH22T2tgufHR2dAgyzTip/6%20day%20event%20blue.jpg)](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmZbdvMLLTZRErnnWsTGSWmZYxH22T2tgufHR2dAgyzTip/6%20day%20event%20blue.jpg)

Far less formal than a regular international competition the Velodrome gets turned into a big party space with a music stage and lots of changing coloured lights. As the official blurb says it combines "the very best in track cycling with an incredible party atmosphere".

The competitors get up close and personal to the spectators and a lot of shenanigans occur which you'd never see in the more serious competitions. It's still very competitive but it's also huge fun.

[![6 day event race.jpg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmeRC8QCJVyT2nD5BksvS391GLc6DbhheHPq6t5o62QAyA/6%20day%20event%20race.jpg)](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmeRC8QCJVyT2nD5BksvS391GLc6DbhheHPq6t5o62QAyA/6%20day%20event%20race.jpg)

And here's a pic of an actual race without the colourful lighting.

Always well worth attending and the one in Ghent, which is the final one of the series, is said to be particularly spectacular. Come November we will be finding out just how true that is. &#128513;

Delegate Your Way to SteemFest 4 in Bangkok Thailand?
<center><a href='https://d.tube/#!/v/alexvanaken/gdffo3ad'><img src='https://ipfs.io/ipfs/QmczBqQ5oSJPLav949FgfGfqLTBJ7RBRYid87tFZfPN5Ln'></a></center><hr>

Join me to speculate on the potentiality of all of us being able to enjoy SF4 having spent ONLY SMT tokens! You have 6 months, better get to delegating!

And if you run an SMT project, PLEASE get your token listed on an exchange that we can all use! Steem-Engine would be the obvious easiest exchange to list on!

What Do You Expect From SteemFest 4?
SreemFest 4 is going to take place in Bangkok - Thailand this year, as you all know by now. If you don't, please read @roelandp's post about the event -> [[save the date] SteemFest⁴ Bangkok, Thailand - 6/7/8/9/10 November 2019 - ⛅ ฟ้าหลังฝน - Let's go!](https://steemit.com/steemfest/@roelandp/save-the-date-steemfest-bangkok-thailand-6-7-8-9-10-november-2019-let-s-go)

> SteemFest is the annual gathering for Steem users and its ecosystem. It is a reunion meets conference meets citytrip - aiming to meet new people, foster relationships and learn from each other. [source](https://steemit.com/steemfest/@roelandp/save-the-date-steemfest-bangkok-thailand-6-7-8-9-10-november-2019-let-s-go)

It's a big party, I believe those who've been there can confirm that, but that's not all. SteemFest is the most important event if you are taking Steem seriously. It's the place where you can meet users, devs face to face. It's the place where you can make friends and develop relationships that can strengthen your position on the Steem blockchain.

Dapp owners will be present as always, they are going to present their achievements and plans, communities as well. This is how it should be, what better place and time to discuss these things, than SteemFest, rigth? 

Last year it was a bit of shock, when a few days after SteemFest 3 ended, people were still feeling the endorphin, and then like an earthquake came Ned's announcement about the disastrous situation in which Steemit.inc was in. He also announced that delegations will be removed and SMT's delayed. Many of us knew this was premeditated. He knew very well before SteemFest3 and chose not to say anything in order to escape facing the music.

The benefits of attending SteemFest are huge. One of them being the presentations by the dapp developers. Understanding first hand what and how they work and being able to ask questions is hugely beneficial.

Here's what I expect from SteemFest. Total transparency and  honesty to begin with. I want Steemit.inc to come with an honest presentation regarding their plans! I bet I'm not the only one wanting to know what they have in mind. I'd like to see as many dapps sharing with us what they plan in the near future. 

What about you?

The many good news around Steem lately
For the past 2 weeks there have been news after news around the Steem platform. If you are living in a cave and have not caught up with them, here are just a few that should get you excited.

![](https://steemitimages.com/0x0/https://d1vof77qrk4l5q.cloudfront.net/img/c059843af46293115ec10e67e9747964b5462d61.png)

## MIRA Soft Roll-out

![](https://steemitimages.com/0x0/https://d1vof77qrk4l5q.cloudfront.net/img/e9c043ae488eb88c0b816ce90b3527c76602c989.jpg)

Steemit Inc [announced the soft Roll-out of MIRA, short for Multi Index RocksDB Adapter](https://steempeak.com/mira/@steemitblog/mira-soft-roll-out-begins). MIRA is set to reduce the cost for hosting Steem master and witness nodes. [With a cost reduction of up to 75%](https://steempeak.com/busy/@taskmaster4450/mira-mira-on-the-wall-holy-sh-t-did-that-just-happen), we can expect to see more witnesses running more master nodes. This will be great in terms of decentralization.

According to [this Steem Center page](https://www.steem.center/index.php?title=Public_Websocket_Servers), we have less than 20 full nodes that are operational. This is quite worrying when we consider that Steem is a decentralized blockchain. With MIRA, I hope more of such full nodes will be available.

## Steemit.com Out of Beta

For the longest time, I thought the tagline of Steemit.com should be changed to "Forever in Beta" 😂. But following [a recent update](https://steempeak.com/steemit/@steemitblog/steemit-update-leaving-survive-mode-and-beta), Steemit Inc has officially brought Steemit.com out of beta. In the same post, Steemit Inc also stated that they are now out of "survive" mode and is transiting into "thrive" mode.

This is great news! While many of the developments on Steem are community driven, Steemit Inc is still the primary driver behind the fundamental changes on the blockchain. With them finally back in business, I expect much more focus from them to bring Steem to greater heights.

## Fast and Free. Most Importantly, a Great Community

One of the top selling points of Steem is the fast and free transactions. With just 3s block time, Steem is one of the fastest blockchain around. Beyond being fast, Steem transactions are also free. These attributes should make the platform really attractive for aspiring dApps developers.

However, that's not just what Steem is good at. Steem's competitive advantage is the fact that there is a great community behind it. There are actual users behind each accounts. This is the most compelling reason for developers to use Steem. If you want to build a dApp that require social interactions, Steem is the natural choice.

Despite all these, perhaps due to a lack of marketing, dApps developers have not regard Steem as the first choice. This might start to change as an award winning project has [announced it's shift from Ethereum to Steem](https://steempeak.com/introduceyourself/@cacheverse/from-ethereum-to-steem).

> Cache is a social (and sometimes anti-social) cryptocurrency trading game, all set in an 8-bit dystopian cyberpunk universe. It originated as a winning project at the 2018 ETHDenver conference, the world’s largest cryptocurrency hackathon.

With this game moving to Steem, I am secretly hoping more will hop onboard as well. [@cacheverse](https://steemit.com/@cacheverse) is in fact spearheading the #SwitchToSteem movement and I wish them every success. I will participate as much as possible if they ever need help.

I’m Delaying Retirement — But I Have a Good Reason.
<center><img src="https://cdn.pixabay.com/photo/2016/04/17/10/01/directory-1334441_640.jpg"></center>

Only a week ago, <a href="https://steemit.com/retirement/@preparedwombat/49-days-but-who-s-counting">I posted that I was going to retire at the end of June</a>. Carved in stone. Inevitable. Permanently verified on an immutable blockchain.

Yeah, that changed. I’m delaying it, rescheduling for the end of August. But I have a good reason.

Steemfest<sup>1</sup> was before I became a Steemlandian. For Steemfest<sup>2</sup>, I was basically just envious of people who went. Steemfest<sup>3</sup> just didn’t work out for me. But in comments several places here, said *Steemfest<sup>4</sup> or Bust.*

And then it dropped off my radar about the same time that I started planning for retirement.

When I saw <a href="https://steempeak.com/steemfest/@roelandp/save-the-date-steemfest-bangkok-thailand-6-7-8-9-10-november-2019-let-s-go">the announcement for Steemfest<sup>4</sup></a>, I knew I *had* to go. But then, duh , I realized that retired guys don’t generally have extra filthy lucre just sitting around. No going into debt to finance the trip, just not happening. Two extra months of work = four extra paychecks = airline tickets and eight days in Bangkok. Sign me up.

Earlier today, I booked my room through Agoda as @roelandp suggested. I’m not a smoker but I booked a smoking room because non-smoking rooms cost *more than twice as much*. Well, I guess a lot of people still smoke in Thailand. Maybe I can buy Febreze there. 😅

Haven’t yet booked flights from MSP to BKK and back but did a quick Kayak.com search to get ballpark ideas. A baseline of $1200 or so for economy one-stop flights, a few hundred less if you transfer several times with long layovers. And after my recent trip to Vegas and back, I’m now a big fan of paying that extra fee for another two inches of legroom. For a tall guy like me, it was a world of difference.

I’ve now got six months to try to work on picking up the basics of spoken (five tones) and written (at least it’s an alphabet) Thai.

SteemFest In November?WOW! [ฟ้าหลังฝน]
I'm so surprised about the news that I had been seeing and when my husband told me that it would be held here in my hometown, I'm so very excited on what would happen and seeing those Steemians that are popular on the Steem Blockchain and also, I want to experience a big party ever!

Me and my husband would be there no matter what happens and for me, I think I could only attend a night because I have to take care of my children and my husband would only be there for those remaining days and nights that the Steemians would be having to (PARTY!).

So, see you all soon and I'm very excited to meet most of you guys! 

Xoxo,
