5 novembre 2017 - Fairtransport
How did you hear of Fairtransport?
I’ve seen Tres Hombres the first time when they visited « Oostende voor Anker ». On board I met the crew , who told me travelling with Tres Hombres would be something for me to do. I totally forgot untill my wife gave me a trip on Tres Hombres as a birthday and retirement present.
