    That was fun. And it even got cuddly on the gondola ride at the end. I'd say it was due to the two beers Stoyana had, if it weren't for the fact we were squished in there like sardines :)

    Jolly hike, tough as usual. But it does not take away the pleasure of sharing a drink over lively conversation with a nice group of people. Cheers:)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
