Allocation of funds

It’s an internationally oriented guide, aimed at the growing number of seaside explorers, and their families and friends. We love to be independent, free to choose and share the lifestyle of acting honestly, purely and with the heart. Staying true to this, we love to support the small and local businesses. That’s why we chose to do everything by ourselves; from collecting and connecting, to printing and publishing.
