Hello Everyone!

in #introduceyourself2 months ago (edited)


I'd like to introduce myself, as I am new to Hive! Some people call me Travis, some call the Texas Traveler.

I was born and raised in Texas with the love of anything and everything that has to do with the outdoors or traveling. With both of those, this world has so much to offer and see. Growing up with dad, he would always take us camping, fishing, hunting, and even hop in his friends airplane to go have lunch at one of his favorite BBQ joints. I knew as a kid what my heart was set on.

I've currently been to 47 states in the USA (Minus- Wisconsin, Maine & Alaska) and have some pretty awesome trips all around the world getting lined up and I love to share my experiences with everyone. From the food all around the world, to sandy beaches of Jamaica and Mexico, even submarine rides over the awesome reefs of Grand Cayman, to European country hopping, I'm here to share it all! I hate no one, and love everyone! I can't wait to get to know everyone and see all the awesome post from all over the world.


Sometimes you sit and wonder where this crazy life is going to take you. In the same time, you sit and wonder how you even got to where you are now, but as long as you keep climbing and not falling, what does it even matter. Just enjoy each moment this life gives you. Im so thankful of everything good/bad in my past that has led me to where I am now.


Provo Canyon, Utah, USA


Welcome to Hive. Always glad to see a fellow traveler on here.

Its nice to be here! Can't wait to see how it goes. This kind of platform is new to me. Thank you!

If you have any questions about the photography community here just ask

Will do my friend! Hopefully I'll get some cool stuff up tomorrow for y'all to check out. Its been a really busy week.

Welcome on board!

Great to see another photographer and traveler among us.
I am sure Wes already explained you how the communities work, so I am hoping to see some of your publications soon.

Kind regards from Slovenia !

I am still teaching him little by little. I don't want his head to explode with how much there is to learn here.

Heck of an introduction man. Traveling is what we do too. In the states, I think I've only visited about 40 of them but lived in more than 30 for 30 days or more. It's that upper eastern region that eludes me too.

Welcome to Hive @texastraveler. In case you you can't tell by the response from your introduction, you'll fit right in here.

Thank you, kind sir! I wish I could have spent more time in some of the states I've been to. So much to see and do, everywhere you go. I can't wait to get the last 3 marked off the list. Its nice to be on board with Hive!

Welcome to the Hive! Travelling really is so cool! I wish you inspiration for your next journeys. I think many will be interested to read read about your travels.

Hopefully I can get some awesome shots, wherever my journey takes me! Thank you!

Awesome intro man. Glad to see you being active and a part of the Hive community. I am looking forward to seeing all the different photos you have from around the country.

Thank you, kind sir! It's awesome to be apart of this! Thank you for letting me know about this awesome site.

Sounds like you’ve got the right attitude for Hive! Welcome.
You’re a traveler and you love people - you’ll fit right in.

My tips would be to engage every day on the platform, upvote content that resonates with you, follow those who interest you and comment on things that interest you.

Use the @ecency app for mobile use too, available on app stores.
I use that 99% of the time. You can do everything on it.

Welcome and have fun!

Hey! Welcome to Hive, nice intro post! :)

Thank you so much! Glad to be a part of the team! 🙂

Hello and welcome to Hive! Hope to see more about your travels soon.

Nice to meet you. Let's hope the world borders open up sooner rather than later - my feet are getting itchy. Love from Australia!

Thank you! I would LOVE to visit Australia. Its definitely on the top of my list. I can't wait until the world gets back to normal. There's so much beauty there.

Hell yea bro! Welcome aboard. You seem like a cool ass dude.
It sounds like you have many exciting experiences to share with us here. I look forward to hearing more.
I wonder, what was your trip to WV like?

Thanks, brother! You seem like a kewl ass d00de yourself! Man, I love WV and all the rolling hills and Appalachian Mntns. that run through there with the small tucked away towns, rivers, waterfalls and hikes, make it an awesome state. I love that region.

I’ve lived here all of my life, I just can’t seem to find a reason to leave for good. Periodic traveling has been enough for me. Nowhere near as much as you have done though.
Bring on those stories bro! I’ll see ya on your next post I’m sure.

Nice to meet you. I am the opposite of you- a super introvert who has never been outside of Lithuania. So I will enjoy seeing different corners of the world in your photos.

Welcome again!
Nice intro post! So much positivity, awesome! :-)
Really looking forward to seeing your photos from all the amazing places you've been!
You'll surely have a lot of fun here on Hive :-)

Welcome! I’ve known Wes for a long time here, so a friend of his is a friend of mine. Also it’s a breath of fresh air seeing a new person do such a good post! Some great pics!

Hello and welcome to Hive😃

Thank you! Its nice to be here. So many interesting things.

Welcome to the Hive community @texastraveler!
We sincerely hope you find everything you are looking for and have found a new home here.

Seven suggestions to consider:

  1. Guard your passwords carefully, and only publish with the posting key,
  2. Use your active key only for wallet transactions, keychain and Peaklock,
  3. The owner password is only used to reset compromised passwords,
  4. DO NOT lose your passwords; copy and store offline,
  5. Do not publish other people's work, be it photos or written, without credit, and be sure to source all of your work, even if it is your own.
  6. An introduceyourself tag is used only once , and
  7. Do Not open any links in memos or comments that you do not know who they belong to. If it sounds too good to be true it probably is, so the old saying goes. There is nothing free here.

I found you because @brittandjosie and @jamerussell from @heyhaveyamet presented and promoted your publication to get more exposure and help you grow faster.

If you find yourself overwhelmed and need some guidance, or if you have any questions, there are informed Hivians available who can help you; you can click to go to The Terminal in Discord here:

Have fun and happy Hiving!
