Yep, it's been a long time since I don't take a proper getaway. The hotel, plane, and Hivefest tickets are all paid and ready for an amazing week in Amsterdam.
I recognize I'm somewhat nervous since it will be the first time where I met international Hivers in real life. And my English skills are, uh... it's been a few years since I don't practice my spoken English. So you have been warned in advance 🤣.
But the effort is more than worth it. I am very excited to 'put faces' (and voices!) to many people I have spent years communicating with. I remember chatting with @edje a few months ago regarding the matter of how beautiful is to feel that you can trust more 'internet magic characters' rather than some people in your 'real' circles.
This will also be a week of deep learning about a bit of everything happening on HIVE; from the base layer to L2's. I can't wait for the next Hard Fork.
If you were thinking about it and think you might have a chance to go, I encourage you to do so. It will be a busy week!
