What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Finding myself scrambling over rocks and admiring the most incredible 360 degree views!

What did you think of your group leader?

Sara is an outstanding group leader. She has a love for this area of Italy and a real feeling for the Garfagnana, it's people, way of life and culture. I found myself on a trip that took me out of my comfort zone and Sara's calm, yet inspiring leadership enabled me to achieve the ascents and descents that we undertook. She did so much for us whilst we were in her care and I've come home feeling that if you put your mind to it anything is possible. Thank you Sara.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

The moderate walking week is in parts quite challenging and I would recommend that some preparation is done before the trip, to ensure that you have the stamina to cope with the rocky and steep paths of the Alpi Apenine. Walking poles are essential!

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Braccicorti is a special place and although we were out for most of the day, once we were eating Mama's wonderful food, it was like being part of the family.
