What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Seeing the waterfall on the walk through Valle delle Ferriere.  A stunning moment that reached all the senses; lingering in silence, watching the water cascade over the mossy stone capturing the sunlight, it was one of the most beautiful natural sights that I have ever seen. A personal highlight was starting the week like Bambi unable to find my 'walking feet' and ending the week striding along confidently; no hill too high or slope too steep. 

What did you think of your group leader?

Ale was really encouraging; he got to know each member of the group and understand their personal strengths and limitations and was able therefore to support each person according to their need.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

It is challenging in places, that's the moderate bit. But you can go at your own pace and that's the leisurely bit. I was relatively inexperienced but I was able to pace myself and my confidence grew throughout the week. Go for it!

Is there anything else you would like to add?

The creamiest mozzarella that I have ever tasted, the steepest hill I have ever climbed and the most laughs I've ever had in a lemon grove!
