150 Steem Travel Writing Contest Is Still On

In case you haven't yet, don't forget to submit an entry to @invisusmundi 's TravelFeed writing contest. But hurry, the deadline is September 10th!

How to Get Involved?

Join the TravelFeed Community! We invite anyone who’s interested in travel to check out and to join our over 800-strong community on Discord. We’re also looking for one more curator to join our team.

We ❤️ Open Source: We are proud to make TravelFeed fully Open-Source, and support other communities on Steem who want to build on our code, which can be found on Github. We’re still looking for contributors who want to work with us on the future of TravelFeed. We’re in Beta and continuously improving the software, meaning that there are still some bugs. If you notice anything or have feedback for us, please don’t hesitate to contact us on our Discord, leave a comment or open a bug report on our Github!

Consider Delegating To Us

Your delegation not only supports the growth of this incredible project, but also helps the entire travel community on the Steem blockchain. Once we launch our token, the airdrop to delegators will be based on the amount of SteemPower delegated and your share of the total delegations for each day delegated. This means an advantage for early investors delegating now while our total delegations amount is only 127k SP: a number that we expect to be much higher in the near future. Our Steem Power is fully used for curation of the best TravelFeed posts and we provide temporary delegations of 15 SP to accounts created through us, to help with resource credits. Feel free to use the following links according to the amount you would like to delegate to @travelfeed:

100 SP | 250 SP | 500 SP | 1000 SP | 2500 SP | 5000 SP | 10000 SP | 15000 SP | 25000 SP | 50000 SP

And again, we'd like to thank every single delegator who believes and trusts in us. If TravelFeed becomes as successful as we are confident it will be, delegating to us is probably the investment with the highest ROI on Steem right now.

The 1st Place

Santa Cruz Trek - 51km in 4 days
written by @globetrotterin

My body made it clear to me that it was not yet acclimatized. It was extremely hard for me and I could only have cried half the way. Never before have I had such problems with walking as on this day. I was just happy when we reached our camp for the first night after 4 hours.

The 2nd Place

Four uncommon things to do in Moscow
written by @stefenne

Outside of the classic essential destinations, such as the Kremlin and Red Square, the city of Moscow offers many other interesting ideas, places and activities that, although not always indicated on tourist guides, are worth seeing and experiencing. These places and experiences allow you to get to know the city more deeply and discover the most hidden and fascinating sides.

The 3rd Place

Sietiņiezis Rock
written by @m31

Sandstone can be affected by temperature and water fluctuations. Sietiņiezis has changed a lot over time. One of the most recognizable sandstone arches is now collapsed. People are not much of a help either. Although it is forbidden to leave any markings on the sandstone, the whole surface seems to be riddled with them. Even at the highest, hardest to reach spots. Caveman instincts?
