Pecados y Capitales, which could translate as Sins and Capitals, is a project that aims at creating travel guide books about a variety of cities, either official capitals or not, having the seven deadly sins as the axis for its contents. It's main purpose is to present practical and assorted information, from an atractive and fresh perspective, focused on the millennial generation, but flexible to any public.
Always looking at the bright side, we want to give a new approach to each one of the capital or deadly sins: gluttony, lust, greed, sloth, wrath, envy and pride. It is a invitation to liberate oneself, and enjoy each destination to the max.
Our guide is going to be in a pocket book shape, with seven chapters divided by tabs. Each chapter features interviews, info boxes, rankings, amongst other elements that makes it more enjoyable to read. We have chosen cities with an emergent tourism market, in order to offer innovative options and boost new destinations. Following this idea, our firs city is going to be Belgrade, Serbia's capital.
We invite you to join us on this sinner's adventure, and to enjoy each trip with no one to blame!
Who we are
Sara, Lorena, Jacqueline, María Paz, Beatriz, Patricio y Pablo, a group of students from the Travelling Journalism Master's, at Autonomous University of Barcelona. We come from five different countries, and different carreers: Journalism, Communication, Tourism and Geology. We believe that with our mix of cultures and hobbies combined with big dosis of creativity, we could revive the travel guide books, so they can correspond to the millenial lifestyle, our style!
Where are your contributions going to?
This Verkami campaign aims at turning our first book into a reality: Pecados y Capitales - Belgrado.
All the initial steps of research and field work, were funded by ourselves. But in order to write it all down and make the coolest guide, we need resourses to all the edition and printing job, which includes editorial design, cover design, graphics, ortographic and style correction.
Furthermore, we are going to take charge of the marketing and distribution of our guide, so that we can keep working independently and impartially.
