MONT BLANC CIRCUIT
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Standing on the Auigille de Midi on our last free day, with the cloud swirling around us.
What did you think of your group leader?
Our leader, Jenny, could not have been better. She is experienced, caring, thoughtful and knowledgeable. I would also like to mention the camp manager, Graham, who is a fantastic cook, and gave us 110% effort. He adapted his repertoire to the weather, and was always ready to give a hand with things not strictly his responsibility, like sorting out mobile phones, helping to pack tents etc.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Pay attention to the kit list!! Including the optionals like poles and umbrella. Take as many clothes as you can fit in your bag as stuff gets dirty and wet and there are not many opportunities to wash clothes ... Take lots of COMPEED :-), neurofen and bite cream. You need a warm sleeping bag, it can be cold at night.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
The walking is strenuous, the people who enjoyed the trip most were those who had prepared by walking up and down steep mountains. Cycling / swimming / other forms of exercise won't cut it, even if you are very fit.
