Tiny office at Albergo for Backpackers
Yes, I finally got more space in my tiny office at Albergo for Backpackers in Plettenberg Bay. I think my office is no bigger than 2 x 3 M. After upgrading bathrooms, the communal area and the bar it was now my turn. Its almost like my office always ends up with things that are not usable anywhere else in the backpackers. So sometime you need to build something useful for yourself. (My dream is of course not to sit in the office the whole day, every day)
In Holland we have got a Swedish company called Ikea. Most of you will know the brand of course. Ikea specializes in making small spaces as useful as possible. My new office makes me almost feel like I have been to Ikea. Actually, running a backpackers is not so much different. We are all the time also busy making the available space as useful as possible for our guests at Albergo for Backpackers.
Where does this story go you might ask yourself? Well, think about it. The happier I am in my tiny office here in Plettenberg Bay, the happier I am answering emails, taking bookings, etc.? This then will lead to more business and that will ultimately enable us to create more wonderful spaces for our travelers. This leads to more happy guests in our Backpackers and ultimately it will lead to more great reviews on Tripadvisor.
At Albergo for Backpackers we have many more ideas for this year. I will make sure to keep you updated about all our wonderful projects. Lets see what the future has in store for us.
For now, happy travels, lot of love from Team Albergo for Backpackers.
