Too many tourists – a blessing or a curse?

During the past two months we could read reports and even editorials about the high revenues resulting from the increased visitor counts on our island. The predictions call even for more visitors this year and the next. While the visitors spend their money for the benefit of our island we will have some consequences too. New developments, more traffic, more new settlers, and a more urbanized lifestyle. These are the consequences that most of our island residents don’t want.
