The Hike
Over six years, about one month at a time, Peter and Gudrun walked the length of the Alps from Nice to Vienna. 1300 miles, 170 days. They found that hiking in the Alps is wonderfully easy. They slept in beds, ate in restaurants, walked on a safe network of trails, at their own pace. Their backpacks weighed only 15 to 25 pounds and were easy to carry.

Gudrun observes: "You will want to keep going, naturally, nobody is forcing you....it is just great." Enjoy nature, but also people, history and culture. It is the opportunity to enrich your own life, to feel healthier and younger! Perfect for non-hikers too.

Notice a solid line and a dotted one? The SOLID LINE is our hike, described in the book. The DOTTED LINE shows that we are on our way back -- to NICE. Green and Brown Dots - DONE. White Dots - the Future ...2019. NOTE, the way BACK TO NICE is NOT in the book. Find summary information on the website.
