At the end of September I spent a week on the Isle of Skye – to walk the Skye Trail from Rubha Hunish to Broadford. I walked 6 of the stages in 5 days. One stage – from Sligachan to Elgol – I had to skip because of the bad weather. In retrospect, this was a good decision, because I learned later that some of the rivers were so swollen by the rain that it was impossible to cross them.
I’ll be reporting more about the trekking tour here in a few days, first of all you’ll find the photos on Flickr:
The Triglav National Park offers excellent conditions for planning shorter or longer tours with a considerable difference in altitude – above all, it is advisable to take a tour between the mostly well equipped huts in the Julian Alps.
You’ll find some impressions of my brother’s and my tour on Flickr: It went from Bled in a big circle through the Triglav National Park to Skofia Loka in 2 weeks.
My brother and me will be hiking again in a couple of weeks. This year we chose Slovenia, and that’s because of the many recommendations of friends. We haven’t worked out the details: We only decided on the starting point – Bled – and the fact that we want to hike on the E7 which leads from west to east. At the same time we definitely want to spend a couple of days at Triglavski Narodni Park.
It is not easy to find good maps and information about the E7, but we are working on it. This is our actual idea of how to hike for the two weeks:
Almost a year after our big journey on the A.T. I still haven’t finished to transfer all my journal scripts into nice blog entries. In the meantime I wrote about my travel experience in the editorial of the magazine I am working for. Enjoy! (unfortunately, German only)
