No VIP guest list.. no dress code.. no ID checks.. no name dropping/greasing bouncers.. and no wi-fi to pull our focus away from the moment. The best bars in the world are those you arrive at that you never knew existed.
Those of you who have been following for awhile know that Jason and I are huge wildlife fans. Therefore, I was super excited to see the Icelandic horses while there in July.
Although we'd seen them grazing throughout @colbybrownphotography photo workshop, we didn't pull off to photograph them until our last day. They are extremely friendly and inquisitive.
I learned the following about them, which I found extremely interesting: -To preserve the Icelandic horse genes and minimize the introduction of diseases, exported Icelandic horses can never return. And, no horses can be imported to Iceland.
-Originating from Norway over 1000 years ago, the breed is pure bred as a result of the aforementioned restrictions
-Most horses have 4 gaits (walk, trot, cantor, gallop); Icelandic horses have 2 additional gaits: the tolt, which falls between a trot and cantor, and the flying pace
-Their manes and coloring are incredibly unique-40 different colors and 100 variations

I went to a walk this day to catch the early light. On the nearly two hour walk I saw nearly every kind of people. I mean it was before sunrise and there were people swimming, running, building sand castles but I didn’t saw another photographer. Good for me, no competition. #balticsea#goldenhour#rügen
Let's get to know each other better - what's your favourite animal?

Did you know that Bitcoin has about $20-$30 of transaction fees? 😅
Sounds weird, right? Especially for people who got used to pay with Visa/Mastercard. 💳 .
The truth is that Bitcoin is not the best, it's not the fastest, it's not convenient to use. Its only advantage is that it was the first, that's it. 👎 .
Having an extremely awesome network effect, Bitcoin has become a brand. An average person, unfortunately can't distinguish between cryptocurrency, blockchain and Bitcoin because they have a mixed perspective on those things. 🙈 .
To be honest, I believe there's nothing wrong about that. This is a technology based on math and cryptography. It wasn't built for your mom from scratch. 🤓 .
However if you think about it, Internet had the same history. It was done by the geeks for the geeks, and then it evolved. Blockchain is the Internet 2.0. Bitcoin is only the first use case. There will be much more, get ready to test. 😉
