Hi <<First Name>>
What a week! The worst storm in 35 years hit the Canaries last week coinciding with the arrival of our final "Popular Week " of the current season. Rain, high winds, floods, ferries cancelled......it all happened this week and if it hadn't been for the good humour and highly positive attitudes of our very resilient group of guests it could have been a total disaster for Gomera Walking!
However notwithstanding the horrendous conditions we still managed to get in 5 days walking with only one day of serious soaking thanks to our flexibility and being able to choose different areas of the Island to avoid the worst of the weather.
We also succeeded in feeding our group every evening despite having to evacuate one of our favourite restaurants when the sewers backed up & flooded the place before we had even got to our starters. A quick dart to higher ground in another restaurant saved the day!
The ferries were cancelled for two days due to impossible swell conditions in Los Cristianos harbour but luckily the schedule was back to normal for our group returning to the UK on Wednesday and today the sun is shining, the sky is blue and La Gomera is paradise once more!
We still have availability
for our special offer week commencing 3rd April 2013. This is a premium week based in the luxurious Hotel Jardin Tecina
and our special offer
gives you €100 discount off our normal price plus if you are a solo traveller you save a further €100 since the Hotel have agreed to drop the iniquitous "single occupancy premium".
If you miss this opportunity then I'm afraid you will have to wait until November when we hope to start our new season for winter 2013-2014. I anticipate being able to publish our new schedule by end May and will send this out in our June Newsletter.
