Thanks again for an excellent holiday!
I had expected the Picos scenery to be truly spectacular and it most certainly was. I had also expected the Hotel Del Oso to make a very comfortable base for five nights. This was an excellent choice and again I certainly wasn’t disappointed…
What I hadn’t expected were the amazing lengths that both you and ‘young’ Dave (!) went to ensure that everyone was having a great time. Your kindness, humour and obvious passion for your art reflected great credit on you both, making it a truly outstanding holiday and ensuring that I will certainly be very keen to participate in future ICPT extravaganzas.
Many thanks for your email and group photo – and huge thanks from both Ed and I for an unforgettable trip! We learned a huge amount about photography (although you might not think so looking at the attached shots), really enjoyed the company of the ‘picos pioneers’ and loved the locations, hotel etc. We are definitely up for another adventure when your blood pressure can stand the vagracies of weather, ferries, hairpin minibus drives and snoring!
Neither of you could have given us more. Long days, difficult driving, varying weather and the translation of ‘tapas’ in Spanish. Also trying to share out your levels of advice and instruction.The holiday more than met its objectives. A trip of this length concentrates the mind and you definitely learn more. It was also a ‘holiday’ – lovely villages, good company and scenery made it very relaxing.
