I didn't see a spot on your website to leave a review, so I am emailing you whilst everything is fresh in my memory.
Firstly, huge congratulations are in order for your excellent organisation, from the start of correspondence till the day we stumbled back into Paul Roux, I couldn't find fault with your highly detailed and cleverly thought out instructions. All the Hospitality was warm and generous, every host made us feel welcome and special, from delicious fruit juices and snacks (Even Chocolate cake) and warm foot-baths to soak our weary feet in, on our arrival at the end of our days walk to comfy beds with crisp clean linen, and lastly, but most importantly, feeding us delicious tasty meals. A couple of times we would be fed a hearty breakfast and then surprised with snacks to take away with us. Such generosity!
Some of our party had specific food allergies and they were thoughtfully catered for.
My indebtedness goes to you Renee, for going the extra mile in taking me to Bethlehem Medi-Clinic to get my gastro bug sorted out ASAP, so that I could get back onto the road and complete the Camino. Many, many thanks.
The Route, the terrain and the spectacular views were a marvel, making every day special. I saw incredible birds (79 on my list) my Botanist Sister In Law saw some most unusual flora, we saw lots of cows of various types and a goodly amount of wildlife. We found lovely places to stop and rest under Willows or Oak trees, walked through avenues of Poplars and appreciated the quietness of the roads.
This Newbery challenge is HIGHLY recommended!
Thank you once again Renee.
