It’s time to talk about holidays again, time to play and to see things from a different point of view - as we do when we are on vacation. So coast people is not something you can belong to, that includes or excludes anyone, it refers to that slice of space and time when we are on holidays, different from our usual selves, doing different things, in a different mood, and with more time.
Coast.Style brings together information, opportunities and ways to experience the Costa Smeralda for people who have free time to spend in Sardinia. A sort of “Coast List”, like Michela Proietti wrote in the Corriere della Sera newspaper on 13th May "to experience summertime in Sardinia in a different way.” It’s true: the way we see it, nature, food, physical activity, going out at night, meeting new people and seeing new places, spotting whales and mouflons are not ends unto themselves, but rather points of contact, links, portals and sources of renewable energy and ideas that we can (better) take advantage of when we are on holidays.
Freedom - “A vacation is having nothing to do and all day to do it in.”
(Robert Orben, author, journalist, magician and ghostwriter
