I just had to let you know that we've had another excellent holiday at Haus Valentin. All the staff from our last visit had moved on, to be replaced by an equally friendly, knowledgeable and helpful bunch. The lovely Emily was there too, helping out - we had met her there 2 years ago. Our friends Glenn and Pat enjoyed it immensely too. Glenn is training to do the 3 peaks challenge at the end of May, with Mike Chadderton, so he did all the more difficult snow-shoeing days out while Pat, Paul and I did the more moderate routes. We also all went tobogganing again, my favourite part of a winter holiday in Badia. The first couple we got chatting to turned out to be good friends of a couple we met on the very first walking break at Eastfield Lodge, it's a small world! And of course we met Phil once again, always a pleasure. So thanks for organising it all, Viv, and do pass on our thanks to all concerned at Haus Valentin.
