What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

An amazing opportunity to walk in the Alps and enjoy the views.

What did you think of your group leader?

Mel was a fabulous guide. She was very knowledgable about the route (having done the route over the last 4 years), managed the group dynamics very well, supporting us on the 'tough' days and with her extensive knowledge of botany and geology was always able to show us something new regularly and answer our questions. She carried a small plastic digger (and some Snicker bars) to explain glaciation - far better than any geography lesson i have ever had before).

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

It can be wet in early Spring but worth it for the flowers. The two rough camps are just that! Not really very nice. The other 'comfortable' camps were all great.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

I would recommend this trip to anyone who likes the mountains, great views and meadows of flowers. Sections on the walk were on large tracks and roads which was a pity but there were no alternatives in these areas so necessary to get from camp site to camp site.
