A memorable 'salt' hotel. Welcoming and comfortable - warm and cosy but salt theme slightly overdone. Salt floors throughout the hotel public areas as well as rooms. It always felt like we were walking on sandy gravel. Walls and furniture (iicluding bed bases) were also made of salt. There were ample common areas with roaring fires that continuously kept the hotel warm. The hotel lobby was especially welcoming with its woodheater.

Even Simon, our French wine expert, liked this wine... If a Frenchie likes it, then it must be a winner! Oooo lala. We ended up all sharing several bottles of this that evening and getting rather tipsy... Well we deserved it after the hardcore weekend we'd just experienced! Let's just ...
... and if I touch anything cold they turn white, lose all feeling, hurt like hell, and become useless. Like having stubs of needles for fingers. Makes breaking camp ad packing away cold stuff sacks and clothes almost impossible. I have some very thick down mittens which help but of course I can’t do anything with my hands when they are inside so it is out and in constantly. Luckily Dan does most of the tent stuffing although I help. Nothing better than doing the first hand wash ...
... how cold it was here. After all, we were now at a height of over 4000m. YOWZA. Our little family, (which became quickly known as the 'Froth family' due to the girls learning a new English word, 'froth', then followed by a string of froth jokes...), as well as the other jeep of five running parallel to us, stayed in special family rooms and each had our own bed and a gazzilion blankets. Unfortunately, I was starting to feel unwell at dinner time, with my ...
