Hiking the GR11
The tapas lunch was lovely and an excellent way to meet up with some of the fellow walkers going on the GR11. Very welcoming and a nice touch. As we were on the GR11 week we didn't attend the normal office hour. However every evening before dinner Hanaa and Bevan went through the route for the following day, handing out maps when required. This worked very well. Have been with Collett's before and enjoyed the previous holiday. Also wanted to walk sections of the GR11 without needing to camp/stay in refugios every night. Collett's week on the GR11 fitted in with our requirements.Special mention must go to Bevan and Hanaa for 'going the extra mile' to ensure the week's walk on the GR11 was most enjoyable and memorable. Nothing was too much for them and little extra touches, such as carrying nibbles for us to have in the refugio and marking the birthday of one of the group with fizz and cake, were much appreciated. Both Bob and I wish them all the best for the future.
