Nedo Pinezić: I am a typical Aboriginal in Croatia, a member of Homo Bodulus, a nation that is dying out

first_imgI AM HOMO BODULUS My name is Nedo Pinezić, I come from the island of Krk and I am a typical Aboriginal in Croatia, so a member of Homo Bodulus, a nation that is dying out.Why did I start this way? Because I want to see the Islanders Act, not the Islands Act. Why am I saying this? Because each island for itself, especially in Croatia, is a small world for itself and all the people on our islands are different as the conditions on each island are different and we cannot, unfortunately, put all the islands in the same basket.Only in Kvarner Rab differs absolutely from Krk and historically and naturally and culturally and certainly, Cres from Lošinj and so on. What we have to take care of is to save life on the islands, but the life of us islanders. Or, I will mention a person I don’t really appreciate too much – Donald Trump, we should use his motto “Who’s first?” and put “Bodul’s first” in the foreground.Who’s first? Are they the first foreign investors, are they the first domestic investors to build large apartment houses on the islands or should I be the first with my family to live proven for over 600 years on that island and whose ancestors have preserved life and culture on that island and living conditions for all who come to the island.GUESTS ARE LOOKING FOR A MEETING WITH A LOCAL HOST The point of all this is to preserve the Croatian man on the Croatian island. Why is this important? Because of tourism, gentlemen.Tourism has changed, you may not be up to date enough, but the data I will now put on the table very clearly show that according to one of the most relevant platforms in the world – Booking.com, which daily accommodates one and a half million guests in the world whose annual income is equal to Croatian income tourism, says that 2/3 of the guests who travel are actually looking for contact with local people, looking for an experience of local culture, looking for local food, and what is interesting from the aspect of health tourism, as I like to call it or healthy tourism because it is a much nicer word, and that is that 2/3 of the people who travel really care about their health on that trip and want active rest, good food and a spiritual element, which means communication with the hosts.I am sorry that I have to sink from this place these strategies of which we have 250 and under whose burden many shelves in closets in many Ministries have given way so far because every strategy in Croatia when written, the moment the ink dries is already obsolete because the world changing, gentlemen. We live in an era of a revolution called the digital revolution of the 21st century, and in Croatia we are still thinking about another revolution, we are somewhere between an internal combustion engine and the so-called click or internet revolution, so we have a deviation of 20-30 years for current world events.OUR DEVELOPMENT IS EQUAL TO TONS OF CONCRETE BUILT INTO A BAY We also mystify health tourism or healthy tourism and make a big story out of it that is not relevant at all. Why? All our tourism is health, all our tourism is wellness tourism. Sea, sun, swimming – what is it? It is health tourism. Why do people come to the sea, to the sun and to swim than because of the sun and health. Is there another reason? Not. They want the sea, they want to swim, they want the tone of their skin, they fill up with vitamin D and feel good and it shows on the faces of these people.And that’s how tourism started, only it actually started by going to the mountains in summer and to the sea in winter. Do not be disappointed if this happens again soon, because of climate change and we have to take this aspect into account. That is why I said that strategies are outdated, and that we base our development on other people’s capital, on other people and on foreign investments, and we constantly talk about it because our development is equal to tons of concrete that was built into a bay. It is our development, and our development is not how many domicile people we have kept in an area. And then we talk about the Laws, about interdepartmental cooperation, so it happens that we write the Law on Islands, and at the same time the Ministry of Tourism released a proposal for the Law on Hospitality in which they delete the boarding house service. And the boarding house service was just in the past system so that locals would not have to open a business, craft or build a hotel, to sell their 3 potatoes, 4 tomatoes and two sardines for dinner to their dear guests.We had a boarding house in the household in the 70s, we had one bathroom in two rooms, my mother cooked dinners and we never had better and better guests. These were Austrian industrialists who would come to the kitchen after bathing, dip their finger in the paddle, lick it and say “Mmmmm what a nice dinner.” Because then we could, what we can’t today, serve products that are branded on the island in our boarding house.Today, due to HASAP and the confusion of pears and apples where high standards for the food industry are applied in the micro segment of catering, where nowhere in the EU such a thing exists, I was in France and Italy, I saw that such a thing does not exist but only in Croatia. We kicked out homemade food from small boarding houses. You can’t buy something packaged without sanitary conditions, which are such that you go to the nearest market there, where there is a declaration and you can give it to your guest, and you can’t give that potato and tomato from the garden because it is very questionable.ARE WE ASHAMED OF OURSELVES?We have degraded ourselves, we ask ourselves where has Croatian pride gone? Do we believe in ourselves? Do we trust our people? There is one region in Europe called the Alpine region where Austria, Switzerland, Bavaria, countries close to us in the north, which we take as a model because they base their development on local indigenous products and link their agricultural products to tourism and hospitality.Apartments and “Bed and breakfast”, but with the hosts, with the people who welcome you, with the locals, with the indigenous Aborigines from the Alps, with people who live their local lifestyle and who offer their local lifestyle as a model. You said that life on the islands is wellness in itself, I agree, Mediterranean lifestyle, Mediterranean cuisine is certainly a form of living a life that is healthy. In the Alps they said – yes, we love the mountains, we live our lifestyle, come to us and enjoy that lifestyle together with us. And that’s how they are branded and that’s how they are sold. And on the other hand, they made a model of Wellness and Wellbeing for small family subjects, from apartments, small family hotels, bed and breakfast and boarding houses in the household because you as the host guide your guest through your life. You go to the mountains – he goes with you, you go to the sea with nets – he goes with you, you go for the sheep – he goes with you, you go to the vineyard – he goes with you.You serve him your food on the table and have your little decorated wellness items. Nature, air, environment, healthy food and indigenous lifestyle is what the modern tourist wants more and more today, and you also heard data from Booking.com from the beginning of this presentation. What is the difference between Croatia and these would say hillbilly people who have such an embarrassingly high standard per capita. The difference is that their administration was able to turn an ordinary mountain shepherd, a lumberjack, a peasant into a square, a top caterer and tourist worker.In Croatia, we are ashamed of our man, we ban his boarding house, we are looking for investors from around the world who will invest millions of euros here and who will do something much better than we are able to in our own country, on our own island. Don’t I on the island of Krk have the right to build a future for me and my children in a way that suits me. Do I have to expose myself too much to loans, go into big investments and experience a crash that I would have to sell that property to some foreigner again and eventually leave my island?Is it a strategy for the development of Croatian tourism, is it a strategy for the development of the island or should this strategy focus on the man as he is. It had two bedrooms, one bathroom, two rows of vineyards, a boat and a longline or a flock of 10 sheep.Are we ashamed of ourselves and where has Croatian pride disappeared? That’s my question to you.Published by: Nedo Pinezić / Source: Otoci.euRelated news: GET INVOLVED. OPEN CONSULTATION ON DRAFT ISLANDS BILLlast_img read more
