Fantastic Trip - Do It!
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
The two "challenging" days; up to the Col de la Seigne and the Col du Bonhomme. Both involved longer days, lots of climbing and lots of snow. However we were rewarded with great views and got our best view of Mont Blanc at the Col de la Seigne.
What did you think of your group leader?
Our leader, Kim, was great! She took an interest and had time for everybody, was great fun and honest about what lay ahead. She was great during our first day baptism of fire in bad weather and lots of snow! We're all fully trained to "dig our toes in", "use our poles" etc when we see snow now!
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Make sure you're fit before you go. While the days vary in difficulty, added fitness will help you enjoy your trip. My knees suffered from the steep descents so I was glad to have lots of ibuprofen and some knee supports.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
It's a great trip - so go for it! The camaraderie was wonderful; lots of laughter and fun and everybody pitched in to help each other out. It was difficult to return to normal life afterwards!
