Together with the family, we have planned a trip to Gdańsk. We have visited the city many times, so this time we wanted to see less obvious attractions. In addition, we were with children who are not really passionate about stories about the history of monuments. We decided to go on a route in gamification mode, in which individual points were accompanied by perceptive tasks. The children got involved in the game and we could concentrate on admiring the monuments and listening to their stories. It was a great time together.
I've been a fan of guideU since I heard about the project. Previously, I was wondering how I can use my passion for less known places in Gdańsk. When I found out about guideU from my friends, I thought it was an opportunity to expand the database of people to whom they can tell about their interests. The fact that I can make money on it was of secondary importance, the money I earn I spend 100% on charity. On my social media I published a sneak peek of my route and there were many people willing to buy it.
I love Gdańsk, but I was always nervous when I saw what was shown to tourists in our city. Neptune, Long, Golden Gate - you want to puke. There are a lot of nice places in our city, apart from what you can see on postcards. GuideU gives me the opportunity to show Gdańsk from my perspective, for all those who expect something more than a waffle with whipped cream in the Old Town. What is important to me is that one passion drives another. I am a graffiti artist and the money I earn allows me to buy paints.
