Are Crypto Currencies the way forward?

We have a couple of friends that are very clued up on BitCoin… In fact, last week they had their first BitCoin Bizarre here in Leicester. Purpose of the day was to educate people about the benefits of getting involved in alternative, peer to peer currencies.
They have a Facebook page if you’re interested BitBizarre Leicester.

While it does confuse me a little, I am certainly intrigued as to whether these alternative currencies will be the next stage in the evolution of global trade, and taking some of the power away from the worlds bankers certainly wouldn’t be a bad thing!

This morning, while searching through BitCoin related sites and info boards, Jo found a website called QoinPro, a community that is free to join, and they issue nominal amounts of digital currencies to their members, for free, every day.
It seems that their remit is to build a community of people who are interested in crypto currencies, and see this initial referral based distribution of currency as a way to kick start their membership.
You can’t withdraw your currencies until you reach a certain threshold, so obviously encouraging people to refer for increased daily rewards.
I think it’s worth a go, if you’re interested then sign up for free with my referral link


And so it begins….Almost!

If I have seen a little further it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants.

Having recently gotten married, we are now frantically selling our possessions and getting prepared for a travelling adventure…..Our travelling adventure.
Having reached our thirties before finding each other, we are lucky to be in a position where we know who we are……Sort ofWe have shared passions for adventure, travel and martial arts; so four years and one wedding later-and we’re ready to realise our dreams!

Our plan is simple, on October 20th 2014 we’re flying to Bangkok, from there we’re planning on exploring South East Asia for the next 6 months or so, before making our way to South America and continuing the adventure. 
We hope to find the wonder that is sustainable travel, and so we’re flexible about whether we work, rest or play in each destination.
As I already mentioned, martial arts is a big part of our lives; with boxing, Thai boxing, Arnis stick fighting and BJJ being our staple interests here in the UK….We’d both go crazy were we not able to train, so we’re hoping to experience different martial arts training in each country that we visit.

So this blog is going to be something of a jack of all trades…We’re going to share our experiences of different cultures, food, martial arts and adventure-and hope that anyone who reads will be able to take something useful from our travels!

If you have any questions or suggestions, drop us a line. 
If you’re a keyboard warrior, jog on.
