is coordinating a return visit . She says: I get the
impression that people are not thinking about the next Tresviso
holiday yet. Please ask them to think about:
a) If they are going
b) How many people and what sort of accommodation would they like (camping, Youth hostel (IYH card required), Hotel/taberna)
Then that I can begin to get an idea of what will be happening and be able to talk with the national park for the permissions we need. Also, if anyone has any ideas on anything that might need preparing beforehand then let me know. firstname.lastname@example.org
