Steem Basic Income Giveaway (Dream Destination…)

Well… let’s start by saying I’m a complete dufus for forgetting to get around to the replies and the upvotes for the last [SBI Giveaway (Cringe…)](https://steemit.com/contest/@bengy/steembasicincomegiveawaycringe-z51ni33tsx). Thus, the bounty just didn’t work… so, as compensation… everyone who made a valid entry last week gets a SBI share! However, drop round to the last SBI Giveaway… there were some truly hilarious replies!

So, this week is vacation week for us… and it has me thinking about Dream Destinations! About places that we would love to go to if money was no object.. we all have that special place that is on our bucket list to visit… but just haven’t had the time or the resources yet!

My Question

1. What is the place or thing that you would most dearly love to see or visit? Why?

My sample answer

The place (on Earth…) that I would most love to be would be the Northern parts of Europe (or Russia or Canada…) in the mid-winter. Now, I’m not a fan of the freezing cold… in fact, I would likely freeze to death if I wasn’t looked after!… but the fact is that this would be the only place for me to see the Aurora… which is something that I’ve longed dreamed to see!

I mean, just look at that photo! And then just think of the physics behind the amazingly beautiful display of colours, patterns and lights! It’s such a visible and stunning display of the laws of nature and particle physics! The ultimate melding of art and science!

Luckily, the Northern Reaches of Europe are not that far away… so, soon! One year, I will subject my family to the eternal nights of the North!

Rules

1. Upvote is not required, but appreciated! 2. Resteem is NOT necessary! 3. In the comments, answer as best as you can the questions that are posed in the “My Questions”! 4. I have added a small Steem-Bounty to the post, so that everyone who replies with a valid entry will get something back. If I give your post a small upvote, it is valid (also, subscribe to @dustsweeper for maximum benefit!). 5. I will be sponsoring as many people as this post pays out in liquid SBD/STEEM. Also I will kick in at least the required amount to round up to the full number. Winner is by random generator after a shortlisting of quality comments! 6. PLEASE PLEASE Don’t upvote your OWN comment. I can’t stop you doing it, but it seems to mess up the distribution of the Bounty for everyone else. If you upvote your own comment, I will consider it an invalid entry when doing the draw.

Steem Basic Income

One of the first communities that I came in contact with at the beginning of my time at Steemit was @steembasicincome. As a author starting out on your fresh new Steemit account, Steemit can be a daunting and lonely place to be. OFten, it can feel like you are posting into an abyss with no one listening and with no ability to grow out of the situation. A share of Steem Basic Income gives you a guaranteed vote on one post a day, thus giving you a small but over time cumulative support to your account to help grow you out of your initial wilderness!

With this post, I want to help sponsor people who might not even have the spare 1 STEEM that is required for registration. So, when this post pays out, I will sponsor people depending on the payout of this post. Basically, I will round up the SBD payout from this post and then that will be the number of people I will sponsor. (So, if the payout is 2.3 SBD, I will sponsor 3 people). OF course, this is not simply an altruistic move, as the sponsor of a Steem Basic Income share also gets a share, so it is a great way to help others whilst helping yourself!
