SLOVENIA: JULIAN ALPS TRAVERSE

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Standing on the summit of Mount Triglav looking around the mountains and celebrating the achievement with the rest of the group.

What did you think of your group leader?

David and Palona were great leaders who looked after us and always put the safety of the group first. It was a real pleasure to walk with them.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Yes, the meals in the mountain huts are as the brochure advertised - wholesome but not too fancy. I'd advise anyone on the trip to take some Worcester or Tabasco sause to liven the goulash, barley soup or pasta dishes up a bit!

Is there anything else you would like to add?

That was a great holiday and although some of the ascents were hard (due to the heat and the 50L rucksack) it was well worth the effort. I'd advise anyone wanting to do this trip to train for it by doing a few hills in advance. The C/D rating was accurate.
