What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Walking over the pass from Switzerland into Italy was simply breathtaking.

What did you think of your group leader?

Simon (Si) , instilled confidence through out the trip. He judged everyone's fitness really well, and was always several steps ahead. We had supreme confidence in him if anything had gone wrong( which it didn't).

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Recommend walking poles, as coming downhill in the wet can be tricky, and sticks do provide extra stability.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Loved this trip. The campsites are on the whole really good. August in Italian campsites is a really busy time, so avoiding August is recommended, although the upside is the weather is superb. There were hot showers everywhere, except for two sites, and at one of those the drop toilets were not very pleasant (understatement), but it was only for one night......
