          Hello :) So happy to find something about this Adventure Week I booked for August! I am very pleased to see that you love it ! I will travel alone for the 1st time, on August for this Adventure Week so I am a little bit stressed about it, and I cannot find someone who speaks about the lodge and adventure. So many thanks for your words, it's very helpful for me :) Have a nice day
