Imagine: You are on holidays and you are arriving early in Barcelona. The Hotel is not ready yet and far away from the center. But you want to start strolling arround, visiting the first sights. But: the luggage is in your way! So what could you do?
You can put it into a luggage storage! And the best would be Luggage Hero!
