Making plans for holidays sometimes proves to be unexpected hard work:
In contrast to the pictures in the advertising glossy magazins the real
place often turns out to be some dirty and fucked up location in the middle of
nowhere (or right in the centre of everything).
Therefore finding reliable information turns out to be the
linchpin and challenge in every holidaymaking-strategy.
When in August 2006 Marco Stuewe and Thorsten Scherff called MyGreat
into life their aim was to establish an open and non-commercial platform for
every user to share his/her impressions of any place on earth. They wanted to
create a database for all the international main destinations which would allow
for a simple and fast access both to pictures of a place or landscape and to
user-comments on the respective location.
In the course of planning this project, however, they soon had to discover that
there were far more spectacular places in the world than they had dared to
imagine - ... and that some other fields of interest would round up their
database-project nicely. Within a time span of just a few days more than 150
internet-domains were thought of and registered and are by now constantly and
freely offered to the community for the benefit of everyone.
Being full-time employed in other business areas Marco and Thorsten struggle to
keep up the administration of all the MyGreat Pages. To help
them doing so anyone is invited to donate any small amount of cash to
help MyGreat to live on and to continue growing. Today the MyGreat
Pages that have to be or soon will have to be administrated include (among others!):
