Just to say thank you to those who went on the Alps trip to Vallorcine from 7th to 21st July, and who made it such a great and varied trip. Many thanks to Fiona, Hanne, Pete, Paul, John, Andy and Dave for your high levels of energy and motivation, and opening my eyes to the potential of the area. Also many thanks to Alan and Jesse who gave us very valuable advice before and during the trip!
Although we were a small group, we notched up a lot of rock climbing, alpine mountaineering, via ferrata and walking…. as well as a lot of chilling at the wonderful Camping des Montets….. I very much appreciate the advice shared by everybody, which not only resulted in us staying at a super campsite, but also helped us to make the best use of the time and have some great mountain experiences.
Suggestion for next year!? – Pete has suggested Innertkirchen in Switzerland, which apparently has similar variety as Vallocine. Bring it on!
