KEEP CONNECTED AND INFORMED

We have created a What's app group for all members attending the trip. Please  download the app if you don't have it and join this group:

https://chat.whatsapp.com/JQLEQeDk1iVFDTAEQs1LwI

It is important to stay in touch while travelling; especially if there are any last minute changes to be announced by your guides (like bus pickup addresses), you become separated from the group or are going to be late for a rendezvous.

This what's app group will also be good for anyone in the trip to share photos, let others know of cool spots you've come across while exploring, restaurants recommendations and pretty much anything we want.
