Dear pilgrims, family and friends,
First of all I truly hope that everyone is well and safe.
My name is Dries. I am from Belgium.
After falling in love with the camino and more than 5000 km of walking, in 2019 I finally found a house to start my dream: running my own albergue.
Because I was low on money, together with some friends, I managed to build everything from wasted materials. It's a very nice spot and the only albergue, right in the middle between Tuy and O Porriño, Central way.
From day one it was a tremendous succes. People from all over the world came to Casa Alternativo. And after 3 months I won a price for being one of the most recommended places on the camino Portugese.
But after a few months being open, Corona kicked in. Already two summers I had to close.
Because I have an albergue based on donations, peoples generousity, the Spanish government doesn’t give any financial support!
That’s why lots of small, charming albergues need to close their doors forever. Only the “municipals” wich are usually owned by the government or “real” businesses are supported.
To avoid that and to hold on to my dream, I came up with the idea to start a crowdfunding platform where people can donate an amount. An amount big or small, the choise is yours and without any obligations! In return for this donation, you will recieve an email with a personal voucher. With this voucher you are welcome in Casa Alternativo to enjoy a full package stay (diner, bed, breakfast). Offcourse you can give the voucher to a pilgrim-friend as a gift as well…. Just don't forget to add your email address in order to recieve it. By clicking https://gofund.me/775f5a8b you’ll find all the information you need!
This voucher you can use forever starting from April 2022. By liking the Facebook page “Casa Alternativo”, you will stay informed and updated about the evolution of this wonderful project. (Casa Alternativo)...
It really is a magic place. Everyone who stayed already will certainly agree
🙂
... It's one of those places that are very important to keep the camino-spirit alive. Because at the end, we are all pilgrims, passionated by the beautiful way of Saint James.
In that way I will try to survive and reopen next year April 2022.
Thank you all very much , share this message as much as you like and hopefully we will see each other soon on the wonderful Camino Portugese to Santiago De Compostela!
Wish you all a lot of love and happiness,
Buen camino de la vida! https://gofund.me/775f5a8b or PayPal: Nuitten.d@gmail.com!
