MONT BLANC CIRCUIT
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
I think each and every day had its moments, some days many of them, such as reaching the highest point of the day and having time to take in the stunning views and seeing just how far we had come.
What did you think of your group leader?
Graham was excellent as a leader always approachable, always calm and friendly, had time for everyone and was extremely knowledgable about the mountains, local history and wildlife. His little 'optional' deviations from the route were always well worth the extra effort. Lewis who was in charge of shopping, cooking, moving gear etc was also excellent and the 3 course meals he served up, all on time, were really really good.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Make sure you are fairly confident about covering the distances involved taking into account the ups and downs as some days I found were fairly strenous and I think the fitter you are the more enjoyable it would be. Comfy boots and ruck sack!
Is there anything else you would like to add?
I would of loved to have stayed in one of the mountain huts one night just for the experience. If this could be incorporated into the trip it would just improve on what I thought was already an excellent trip.
