Hey bloggers,

while keeping on posting and sharing our travelling experiences, we would like to share with you the Life Beyond Tourim’s  principles, which are summarized in the Manifesto below.

We have created one page for each one of the Manifesto’s principles, and we would like you to pick one argument up in order to take an active role in the  definition of, and discussion on, the Life Beyond Tourism project!!
