Here's the deal: I'm travelling around the world since 2009. But not like most other people to discover as much countries as possible - nope - my goal is to stay in each country I've chosen at least 1 year to get to know as much as I can about the people, life, culture and country/city.
Back in 2014 I started my very first travel guide about Cape Town to cover parts of my travel expenses. Eversince, I've added a few other cities to this web project which is called - CityGuideLounge. And yes, all pages are continuously updated to make sure travellers get the latest news, info and offers.
My destinations so far:
...2009-2011 - Las Vegas, Los Angeles and New York (USA)
...2012 - Salzburg (Austria)
...2013 - Mallorca (Spain)
...2014 - Cape Town (South Africa)
...2015 - Dubai and Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates)
...2016 - London (United Kingdom)
...2017 - Punta Cana (Rep. Dominicana)
You can also find CityGuideLounge on Facebook:

I'm currently selling advertising space and tours/activities to keep this project running. However, as you can imagine there are quite a few expenses for e.g. Google and Facebook ads to reach out to more potential visitors/customers - which are not cheap btw. :/
How you can support my project:
To cover all this expenses I'm currently looking for people who are willing to support my idea. In short: the purpose of this Patreon page is to allow people to make ongoing contributions (kind of GoFundMe, but monthly) in order to cover the above mentioned costs.
What you'll get - Rewards:
Even though I’d invest all the money I’ll receive into this project, I'd like to give something back for any contribution small or big. I want to return and show that I'm grateful :)
Let's say you contribute an amount of $120 a year - In this case I'd like to offer you a CityGuideLounge gift voucher of $ 60 which can be used for any activity (offered online) on one of your next trips - worldwide :)
This Reward counts for every contribution over $ 120 a year. If you're willing to spend/contribute the great amounts of $ 120, $ 240, $ 600 or even $ 1,200 a year - You can always expect a CityGuideLounge gift voucher worth % 50 of your contribution after 12 months - which can be used for trips worldwide :)
My future plans regarding the travel sites are quite simple ;)
- Translate all websites into English
- Create a mobile application, available in App and Google Play stores
Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you soon anywhere in the world!
