This book is about Cornwall. About its people, about the life there. The attitude is surprisingly fresh, because we want to show the Cornwall that is known for wide beaches, great food, interesting people, surfing, for having a good time...a place to be and live. The book will be published in German because Cornwall is not well-known in Austria, Germany and Switzerland - apart from Rosamunde Pilcher. The mantra is: Get to know Cornwall and then go there and see...the magic!
The image of Cornwall in the German-speaking world is that of an
old-fashioned place where life resembles Rosamunde
In our book, we want to present the real Cornwall – a
place we would describe as dynamic, attracting, diverse,
eco-conscious and energizing.
EAT SURF LIVE should surprise people with creative recipes, a
laid-back surf-culture and the interesting, innovative people of
The book will not be a “normal“ travel guide, but a
real travel companion, a friend that guides you through one of the
most amazing and astonishing places we've encountered so far.
What is the project goal and who is the project for?
We would like to show the world, how beautiful this place in the
south-west of England really is. And this is done by creating a
unique travel book, which enriches the reader with personal stories
and alternative views on the region.
The book will be published in German, as young travelers in
Austria, Switzerland and Germany should get to know a
“new“ England, the surf, the mouthwatering food and the
charming Cornish people.
EAT SURF LIVE will be full of authentic stories and sought-out
and useful information. We want to attract an audience between the
age of 25 and 40 – boys and girls alike.
The book will also contain beautiful photographs and it will be
stylish (thanks to our graphic designer Verena Michelitsch). And of
course it will qualify as a nice present.
Why would you support this project?
We are young creatives, depending on our audience to finance our
big dream: Holding our beautiful book in our hands and sharing our
experiences with family, friends and strangers alike.
When you support us, you get a copy of the book - printed or as
a digital version, depending on how much you are willing to pay. By
supporting us from the first day, you make the printing of the book
possible. (We've worked for free - that's for sure!) You can read
our lively stories and fun anecdotes and maybe give them to your
friends or guests. (Providing you are a Cornish hotel/B&B or
We promise high quality and standard plus a feast for the eye
while flipping through the book.
How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?
The fundings will directly go to our printer's in order that you
can get your book as soon as possible. Our trips, the design, the
photos and everything else is done on our own costs.
We are desperately in need for this money, because we would love
to see this book printed.
Who are the people behind the project?
We are Vera & Katharina, two Austrian girls, who accidently came
to Cornwall and instantly fell in love with this place. We love
travelling, writing, photographing, illustrating and eating good
food. The stories and experiences we heard and had in Cornwall
enriched our life so much that we want to share them with a
readership. So, maybe you will go out and plan your trip to
