Highlights of the Dolomites
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
What did you think of your group leader?
Both Eric and Albert were great.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
The June trip offered a daily choice between levels 3 and 5 walks. I'm a level 5 at going up, level 3 going down. By listening to the next day's routes I was able to make a reasonable choice on which one was suitable for me. First time I used poles - they helped me and my knees down.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
(1) When walking, we both found that we had to concentrate on the footing and the person just ahead - we would like many more short stops to look up, see the view and take photos. The scheduled morning stop and the lunch break often centred around the time to get fully served at a mountain hut, but always were too long - perhaps packing lunches all the time is a better option. (2) Most days involved ~45 minute local bus rides each way - all well synced with lift times by the tour leaders. On our last walk day the level 5 group paid a supplement to taxi (there was no bus) out to the start - that was a lot quicker and more comfortable for my 6 ft 7 in frame. Maybe Exodus could try a taxi-service for all walks.
