Camper sales are growing, the share of caravans is falling

first_imgRELATED NEWS: Also, in addition to the 5 existing ones (Zaton Holiday Resort, Krk Premium Camping Resort, Valalta, Val Saline and Šimuni), This year, as many as 5 new Croatian camps received the ADAC Superplatz label (Aminess Maravea Camping Resort, Lanterna Premium Camping Resort, Omišalj, Baška Beach Camping Resort and Straško.), Thus entering the selection of the best leading European campsites by the ADAC. At the end of last year, a guide to German camps was presented ADAC for 2019 year in which the Croatian ones are also listed, a total of 129. ADAC: Average quality of Croatian camps in 2019 increased by 3% One of the most significant development trends in the segment of “camping vehicles” is a significant increase in the share of camper sales and a simultaneous decline in the share of caravans.  Based on the processing and analysis of ADAC data, KUH points out that they can be more than satisfied with numerous positive indicators of the quality of the Croatian camping offer. Thus, the average quality of Croatian camps in 2019 increased by 3%, the quality of camps by region is increasing (eg the highest growth is in the region of Šibenik, as much as + 14,3%!); while the campsites of Istria have the highest quality, with an average rating of 4,1 out of 5. At the national level, the selected best campsites were also awarded quality marks by the Croatian Camping Union – Croatia’s Best Campsites for 57 of them, and OK Mini Camps for them 41. CROATIA IS BECOMING MORE AND MORE RECOGNIZED BY WINTER CAMPING GERMAN ADAC CAMP GUIDE FOR 2019 PRESENTED As they point out from KUH, the mentioned trend must definitely point us to some of the determinants of the future development of our camping products, starting from differently equipped and size-appropriate pitches for modern campers, forming a “quick-stop” possibility within the camp, all the way to the necessary strong development of the network of continental camps and an even more significant increase in campsites that are open throughout the year.

City’s Guardiola full of admiration for special Bielsa

first_imgMANCHESTER, England (Reuters) – Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola never played under Marcelo Bielsa but credits the Leeds United coach as one of the most important influences on his own trophy-laden managerial career.Experienced Argentine Bielsa will be managing in the Premier League for the first time next season, having steered Leeds back to the top flight after a 16-year absence.And Guardiola, for one, says England’s Premier League will be all the better for it. “He has done an exceptional job. They were exceptional last season and then didn’t get promoted. They showed a lot of character to get promoted a year later and have been consistent,” Guardiola told a news conference ahead of City’s trip to relegation-threatened Watford on Tuesday.“I was not his player, so it is difficult to talk about him. But I know the reference from a hundred million players who were with him. I was lucky enough to have the chance to talk to him. He is unique in world football because of the special way he plays. He is an authentic manager. “No other manager in the world plays the way he plays. I learnt a lot about his style, his final product. He is an incredible person. He is so special.”Former Argentina national team coach Bielsa’s managerial honours cannot compare with Guardiola’s multiple titles with Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Manchester City. But for Guardiola there is more to being a great manager than picking up silverware.The Spaniard says he rates Bielsa “at the top” and it does not matter that he has not got a glittering CV.“Winning titles helps (you) to have a job next season but at the end of your life what you remember is not the titles you have won, it is the memories you have and whether the manager taught you a lot,” Guardiola said.“What we remember are the experiences and the memories, the players you have had, the managers you have had. Marcelo is at the top of the list. Absolutely at the top of the list.” Guardiola also shared his thoughts on another manager, Nigel Pearson, who was sacked by Watford on Sunday despite leading them to the cusp of safety having been hired in December on a short-term deal with the club bottom of the table. “Before lockdown what Nigel did was incredible,” Guardiola said. “They got a lot of points with the results they got when they were on the bottom. After that, I don’t know what happened.” Watford are three points above the drop zone with two gaames remaining and visit Arsenal on the final day after hosting City.last_img read more

Patriots’ Matthew Slater calls heads on every coin toss thanks to father’s influence

first_imgDeCOURCY: NFL OT rules need to changeAfter the AFC championship thriller, he explained why he always makes the same call.”Well, I remember as a child watching my father play in LA and him going out and doing the coin toss for the Rams,” Slater told the Boston Globe. “He always called heads, so I asked him one time, ‘Hey, why do you do that? What’s the story behind that?'”I think anyone who knows my family knows faith is important to us, and for him, he was always like, ‘You know, God’s the head of my life, so I call heads.’ That was something he came up with, and I’ve kind of just embraced it.”Slater’s father Jackie has ties to this year’s Super Bowl beyond his son’s participation. Jackie played for the Rams as an offensive tackle for 20 years, but he won’t be cheering on his former team come Feb. 3.”We had a good conversation (Sunday) night,” Matthew Slater said. “He’s going to support his son, so we cleared the air on that last night, and we’re all squared away.”SUPER BOWL 53 PICKS:Predictions from Sporting News’ experts The Patriots got lucky against the Chiefs in the AFC championship game Sunday by winning the coin toss at the start of overtime. New England elected to receive. Quarterback Tom Brady led his team down the field to score a touchdown, win the game and advance to Super Bowl 53 against the Rams. Chiefs star QB Patrick Mahomes never touched the ball.The Patriots have played in two overtime postseason games in the last three years, and both times, they won the coin toss and the game. The one constant for those games: Matthew Slater has called the toss. Slater was elected captain in 2011 and has had this responsibility since. Safety Devin McCourty knew the AFC championship game was over once the Patriots won the coin toss.“You saw me, I ran off soon as I saw it was heads,” McCourty said after the win. “I saw heads, ‘I saw this before, and I know what happens at the end of this one.'”Any time we go to overtime and we get the ball, I’m not really worried about anything. I’m going to get comfy.”last_img read more
