Dubrovnik & Konavle Walking Festival is a great tourist story and a platform for how our tourist product should look like

first_imgI constantly emphasize that the motive for coming is not accommodation, but quality, diverse and authentic content of the tourist destination.Exactly in Dubrovnik and Konavle from 2 to 9 October 2017 will be held a new quality and interesting tourist content and story – Dubrovnik & Konavle Walking FestivalThe Dubrovnik Hiking Festival is primarily intended to show a different face of Dubrovnik, away from the crowds, focused on local tastes and trails, with a sense of freedom, tranquility and belonging to nature. Fertile Konavle fields, picturesque villages, hiking trails, the old railway, vineyards, wineries and local households await tourists in a unique program designed for everyone – from absolute beginners to advanced mountaineers.”We want to show the secret places that are mostly known among the locals in a sustainable form of active program to discover the unique food and wine of the region. With the festival we try to prove that this period, from August to July and August, is the best time to visit Dubrovnik. At the end of this festival, we guarantee that we will all come to the same conclusion – Dubrovnik is much more than stone walls and a popular summer destination.”Points out Zoran Ateljevic, one of the organizers.This image and experience is rememberedRural households, authentic gastronomy, culture, tradition, heritage… are part of this unique tourist story, all with the main focus on authenticity. Everything that is not written in tourist brochures, and the locals know, and that is exactly the story we have to tell – our authentic story combined with a superb, ie unforgettable experience. We remember the experiences from our travels, and as the motive of the trip is to get to know and experience a new and authentic way and culture of living, it must be an imperative of our tourism. That is the essence of tourism.Let us respect ourselves, our tradition, heritage, culture, identity so that others can respect us, and let us be what we are – Croats. All of our amazing authentic stories and diversity I have to pack nicely into a rounded tourist product and tell the story. This is the whole philosophy and paradigm of tourism. Yes, it’s that simple.Also, we should praise the excellent quality video, which is certainly a lure and a real motive for coming, in addition to excellent shots, it presents what we are – our story. This is the best possible pattern of how to organize all other festivals, events and tours, because tourists want to experience, see, taste… – our authentic story. Then why would they travel hundreds of miles if we sell them what they have at home?Content, content and only quality and primarily authentic content is the essence of tourism. These are the real ambassadors of our tourism and such tourist stories should be promoted and co-financed because this is the best platform on how to be our main tourist product, and not mass tourism, form and be copies of others.So simple, yet ingenious. Tourism is emotions, experiences and stories. Let’s tell stories, our authentic stories.More details about Dubrovnik & Konavle Walking Festival and how to apply can be found herelast_img read more

Rapper Megan Thee Stallion is suing former MLB player Carl Crawford for $1 million

first_imgA district judge in Harris County Texas granted Megan a temporary restraining order on Monday, which allows her to put out music despite the label’s attempt at blocking her new releases.Crawford has not been reached for comment, but he’s no stranger to ludicrous contracts. In 2011, he signed a seven-year, $142 million contract with the Red Sox. He collected the money despite never playing a full season on the deal due to injuries. He was traded to the Dodgers, who released him after playing in just 30 games. He was paid his full $21.8 million salary in 2017 despite not being on the team.As the famed rapper would say, “Money good.” This week has been a Hot Girl Bummer for former baseball star Carl Crawford.The ex-left fielder, who played for the Rays, Red Sox and Dodgers, is being sued by Houston rapper Megan Thee Stallion, the rapper who rose to superstardom with her 2019 hit “Hot Girl Summer.” Megan Thee Stallion, whose full name Megan Jovon Ruth Pete, is suing Carl Crawford and his company, 1501 Certified Entertainment, demanding that the label renegotiate her original deal.Crawford founded the Houston-based label after his retirement in 2016 and was the first person to sign Pete to a contract in 2018 at age 20. Pete claims “[she did not] understand some of the verbiage” when she signed the initial contract, and is suing for at least $1 million in damages.MORE:  Watch Mike Trout hit a gosh darn golf ball to Pluto, because why not?According to TMZ , Pete claims in her lawsuit that her current deal allows 1501 Certified to get 60 percent of her recording income. The remaining 40 percent goes to her, but she uses that money to pay engineers, mixers, featured artists and others who help work on her music.Megan also claims that the contract calls for all money from Megan’s touring and live performances to go directly to 1501 Certified. She says the label is supposed to give her a proper account of what she’s owed, but claims what they’ve provided is incomplete, and “purposefully and deceptively vague.”Megan Thee Stallion says that 1501 isn’t letting her drop new music due to her requesting to renegotiate her contract. pic.twitter.com/4Uz5vXwmD0— Ronald Isley (@yoyotrav) March 1, 2020Pete’s career trajectory led her to sign with 300 Entertainment in November 2018 and a management deal with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation in 2019, but Crawford and his label still receive a cut because of her original signed deal. Pete announced Monday that her latest album “Suga” has been delayed as a result of the renegotiation attempt.FAGAN:  How one mail-order ad turned New Era into the MLB hat king almost overnightPete also claims  Crawford has been using his relationship with Rap-a-Lot Records founder J. Prince to intimidate people. In the suit, Pete says that Crawford threatened a producer to hand over beats by saying Prince would be upset.”Prince is notorious in the industry for strong-armed intimidation tactics, and the comment was taken as a physical threat of harm,” Pete claims.last_img read more
