What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

It was all inspirational but the last day at Maria Waldrast stands out. It felt like we were explorers braving the elements to conquer a mountain after which there was a long descent back to the restaurant were we could enjoy a nice warm mug of gluhwein. It was Heaven.

What did you think of your group leader?

Bob was a fantastic leader; an amazing source of knowledge both local and general, he did a great job taking care of us. He made me feel 'at home' in Austria rather than just another tourist by helping us to integrate with the local community.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Take a camera!

Is there anything else you would like to add?

I can't wait for next winter so that I can enjoy another cross-country holiday!
