We - the team of backpackers-lounge.com - decided to shutdown our web
Why did we do that?
There are a few reasons:
First. We started as a group of students, seven years ago. Now things
have changed and we all work full-time sometimes even more. We pushed
the service as far as we could with limited budget and resources.
With this circumstances there's no way to offer you the glorious services
as we had it in mind.
Second. As you probably recognized, we didn’t reach the millions of users
we wanted to. At the end of the day, it again comes to first point: no resources
for a awesome worldwide TV campaign to make the backpackers-lounge.com
as popular as it deserves to be.
Third. The internet is moving fast. The so called "web 2.0" movement
overtook us and it is no secret that currently the backpackers-lounge is
no longer up-to-date.
Last but not least we all want to thank you for supporting us and our idea.
We are convinced that you will share your individuality with other users and
travel with us the world The possibilities are awesome! And who knows, may
“share individuality” with the next Web3.0 movement again…
We wish you all the best!
