Bought my First Country!

fted gmaw

Okay, you got me, I didn’t buy a real country, it’s a virtual one. But still, let me explain and you might end up buying one as well 😉

One of my best friends, Niels Vanden Buverie (whom I by the way co-founded a company with a couple of years ago) is planning to make a trip around the world and has come op with an innovative way of financing it. He started a website called ‘Get Met Around The World’ on which you can ‘buy a country’. Companies buy them to get exposure, persons like me just buy them to support Niels to get enough funding.

So I bought my first country ever (or this is the closest I can get to buying a country)! Ever heard of ‘East Timor’? Probably not, that’s why I bought it, to learn something new about a small country nobody knows. Did some research on it. Here’s a small summary:

  • Official Language: Portuguese
  • Inhabitants: 1 million
  • Currency: US Dollar
  • Declared independence from Indonesia in 2002

Feel like supporting this cause, go and spread the word!

PS: If you’re from East Timor and feel offended by my negligence, my apologies!
