After meeting in LA, we drove out to Las Vegas for the weekend. I used the time in the car to catch up on podcasts. CRYPTO 101 is one of my favorite podcasts. It puts out frequent episodes, the creator is definitely very passionate about the project and most importantly – he uses very simple language so that it’s easy to follow along. I got used to listening to podcasts at 2x speed and so I caught up on almost 10 hours of podcast material on the drive to Vegas.
We’ve stayed at a pretty nice place here in LA. A villa that houses 18 people. It’s kind of a large place. Now we’re about to leave, we’re driving to Vegas – about four and a half hours – and we’re getting ready for a road trip!
My favorite crypto podcast
So we’re on our way out of LA. There are six cars in total, three cars are going to Vegas directly and I have a car to myself. And I’m using that to catch up on my favorite crypto podcasts.
One of my favorite podcasts to stay up-to-date on simple cryptocurrency concepts is Crypto 101. I think they bring out episodes pretty frequently so I probably have like 10 or 15 to listen to.
Finally arrived in Vegas
That’s the car which I just drove for 430 kilometers. Pretty happy to be done with driving for the day. Now I’m dropping it off and then we’re headed to the hotel for the chill part for today.
Alright, so we arrived in Vegas after about a four and a half hours drive from Los Angeles. It’s beautiful weather, it’s quite warm outside, nice hotel. Got like a suite for the bachelor and a connected room. And then a few more rooms in the tower. And now we’re about to head out, get some dinner and then probably enjoy the Vegas nightlife.
Balancing work and leisure
In terms of jet lag, I think I’m pretty adjusted but today was just a very long and intense day. I sometimes feel like it’s important to find a balance between leisure and completely letting go and enjoying time with friends but at the same time making sure none of my responsibilities get off track. And then also, I’ve been to Vegas so many times that I feel I don’t miss out on stuff too much. And with that, I think I’m gonna crash for like 20 minutes and then head out into the nightlife.
So one thing that was very nice about the long drive was actually that I could catch up on crypto podcasts. And I think my favorite is one that’s called Crypto 101. It’s a crypto that is very entry-level language. So it’s easy to follow, it’s even easy to follow at twice the speed. So it’s quite efficient to listen to that. And I listened to a bunch of different type of episodes today.
What I found inspiring is that he did start it because he had some personal experiences where he realized how much better it would be a) if he could transfer money anywhere, anytime without huge transaction fees and outside business hours. And so he goes on and talks about how identity on the blockchain in a decentralized system with all these checks and balances built in could prevent a lot of tragedies.
But now it’s time to go and I’ll talk to you tomorrow!
