Because yes, obviously and clearly, the work influencers do is valuable and worthy of tangible remuneration. However, that's not the gist of the article.
This isn't one you can skim and assume you've got it. Read it slowly. And then read it again for good measure. And it's not one I can boil down to a witty one-liner or adequately summarize in a few sentences.
It was fun to relive the experience by writing about it for our partner. And even though I certainly don't miss the cold, rainy weather, I rather miss the place. It's not Paris, but a visit to the Brittany area is something you'll not soon forget.

These monkeys go bananas for bananas on Monkey Island, just off Na Jomtien, which is just 2 hours bus/cab ride down from Bangkok, Thailand.
Special thanks to Ocean Marina Yacht Club, Pattaya for inviting us and a few of our traveling friends up for the last few days. We had a blast, but I think a trip to Monkey Island takes the cake. Or perhaps... the banana.
(Fair warning: This video features monkeys in their natural habitat eating a very unnatural diet. I've no idea how "responsible" it is (probably not very), and there's no way they can support a population of that size without humans showing up several times a day with boats full of food-bearing tourists, so they're probably screwed when the zombie apocalypse happens. Having said that, my money is on these guys as the replacement species after we're gone. Please send your complaints to email@example.com)
Here's a fascinating report from reddit's r/science/ group that sheds light on why I'm such an asshole.
