SLOVENIA: JULIAN ALPS TRAVERSE

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Coming down from Triglav. I was so scared but never doubted once that my guide would get me down safely. Then when I looked back at where I had been I really could not believe that I had done it!!

What did you think of your group leader?

The group leaders were excellent. They really looked after us especially on the narrow ridges across the via ferrata making sure we were safe and felt secure at all times. They were also very entertaining and joined in with the social times too.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

There are some scary parts to this trip so if you are afraid of narrow ridges with steep drops, then think again.  Also as you are carrying your pack you really only need the bare minimum of clothing etc. It was amazing what we all left out of our packs on that first day!!
