This cannot be more symbolic ending of one small chapter in my life. A month ago I have put a lot of pressure onto my lazy self and decided to write one meaningful post everyday, here on Travelfeed. Today it is I believe 26th post, meaning I have probably missed one or two days through out the month. Not too bad. But more interestingly I have run out of pictures and stories which I have been collecting over the summer. So from now on, I would either repeat myself or the level of my blogs would fall down significantly. Thereby I will have a little break from this "busy" schedule and post again randomly, once something cool happens in my life. And this time I have a feeling I will have to work hard on it, as we are entering the seventh lockdown over the fifth wave of bullshit, what can one do. Also the coming winter doesn't make travel easier. Some tough choices to make indeed. In any case I am stuck in Turkey for at least until the New Year's, so I have to plan within the country's boundaries. Luckily Turkey is a big one and there are still places I would like to visit. But oh my... All the masks while travelling. What a downer, maybe I should try to hitchhike or something like that, will see.

In any case the month of full time blogging made me enough Hive to pay for my rent and wine, that is absolutely awesome and I would like to thank everybody for upvoting or commenting!

Now, let me share some of the last photos I took few nights ago from the infamous cliffs of Antalya.

I have started my evening walk rather early, hoping to enjoy a drink with great views while the sun was still warming up the day. All the terraces were full as if no lockdowns existed and I couldn't resist but to skip them for a beer in the kiosk. After all they have the same bottle, just more expensive. And taking your own drink to the cliffs is better anyway. Many locals and tourists do so and it is really cool to watch. Some people even bring out their picknick tables, play games, there are even fishermen that gather in groups around suitable places to fish. Yeah, they do it from 20+ meter high cliffs. If they catch something, that is another question, right...

As the more fortunate ones are enjoying this beautiful nature's theatre from boats, I am finishing my beer and immerse myself totally into the present noment. Trying to empty my mind to let some fresh thoughts to come and give me some guidance on what to do next...

Until next time,

Global Local

Very impressive there friend. I am also aiming to pay for my rent using my Hive blog posts, and the nature subject receives the best upvotes I have found. I'm glad we can benefit from our nature and travel blog, now in the bull market. Let's hope it keeps going when the crypto prices dip next year again.

@julianhorack Hey, thank you. It really looks like best time to start squeezing the most out of it. Not abusing of course... Today's pump is hopefully just the beginning of another run up. Who knows how high it will take us this time. It is harvest season for sure, spending profits on rent is a good idea. at least you're not holding the hot potato ($) for too long... The question is only where to cash out to in inflationary environment. I guess not cashing out everything, is the best way to go. Cheers

Nature is really the best place to relax and enjoy. Nice pictures 😍😍😍

Yeah definitely. thanks

It's been interesting reading your travels as you have been posting them in the haveyoubeenhere and pinmapple community on Hive. We, from Pinmapple have curated many of them and along with our curation trail, including blocktrades and theycallmedan are glad to have helped to fund your travel. (Except for a couple of posts, you can see your post reward difference between where Pinmapple have curated you vs not) No need to thank us for that as we're always happy to support good travel content on Hive.

In future, if you start creating travel content again, you are welcome to post directly from our community via peaked or to save yourself the 10% beneficiary cut and increase your rewards.

@pinmapple Thanks for valuable info, will definitely consider that in the future!

Just feel I need to rectify @pinmapple's statement here - TravelFeed has an optional beneficiary setting (similar to Peakd), which means that, if enabled, 5% of the total post rewards go to us, e.g. if your post earns 20$, we get 1$. The largest part of that goes towards paying our servers and curators and usually this should be more than compensated by the votes you get from TravelFeed and our curation trail. That said, while I appreciate if you turn on the 10% beneficiary as it helps us to keep TravelFeed running, I've travelled on a low budget for years and there were times when every Dollar meant a lot to me, so if you would like to avoid the 10% beneficiary cut I completely understand. You can turn it off in the sidebar (click on Hive, edit Beneficiaries, remove). No worries at all and you receive all the benefits of using TravelFeed (including our votes) regardless if you set a beneficiary or not :)

Congratulations @globallocal! You received a sweet smile from TravelFeed. We love your work so keep up the good job. 😊

Thanks for using TravelFeed!

So awesome to hear that! When we started TravelFeed, our vision was to enable thousands of travelers like yourself to be able to travel just from their earnings of blogging with TravelFeed!

I've been to Antalya myself this summer, I especially enjoyed Cirali (small fishing village 1.5 hours South of Antalya), very chill place
