The Camino Travel Center closes

UPDATED: The camino Travel Center has re-opened with new owners. More about their services here.

After almost two years open, I have decided to close the Camino Travel Center in Santiago de Compostela.

When I started, my idea was that this would be a one-man-show. Then I got the chance to work for Xacobeo, an opportunity that I was too good to turn down, I had to hire help (first Frank, then later Wiktoria). They have done a great job, but the bruden to have salary expenses as well as rent and other expenses has been tough.

I gave myself until the end of 2010 to make a decision on what to do. The decision has not been an easy one, but last week I finally decided that it was the best to close down. I am totally fine with it, but in the end I realized that I can not do “everything”. I have been working crazy hours this past year, and it is time to slow down a bit.

I would like to thank everyone that has stopped by the Travel Center over the last two years! It has been wonderful to meet you all, I “met” many of you online first and it has been great too meet you in person!

This last week I have been working on a way for some of my services to continue.

But even if I close the Travel Center. One of our most popular services are continuing. The Luggage Storage.

Parcels should now be sent to Casa Ivar.
