Day 7 - nearly finished

Spent the night in Trient - not exactly the same quality of hotel or view from my window as before, but the constant cow bells were a nice change.. don't these things sleep? Today we make our way back to France over the Arete des Posettes, a whale backed ridge - supposed to be a gentler day of only 15 kilometers and 2500 ft elevation gain and loss. The high point will be the Col de Balme which is supposed to have a funky restaurant for lunch... -- ...

Hiking till the cows come home

Gav and I grabbed breakfast in town. There were a herd of goats - I think it was a show for us tourists but what the heck they were cute and they looked the part. We found a cafe that was serving half priced coffee and sandwiches - a nice surprise as we didn't find out until the bill arrived. Then we stalked up on food for the kids and headed back to wake them ...

Day 4 - missed a day

A travel blog entry by glazer on Aug 07, 2014

... Val Ferret area. This is a real small hamlet with about 5-10 houses, a hotel and a bar/restaurant. Service was good, the shared washrooms were clean and dinner was tasty... Hopefully a better day tomorrow.... We've faced a few challenges on this trip so far, stinging nettle, wet backpack straps and long days, but I hope this last one is now behind us (pun intended) and we resume ...
