June 1st 2017
on my website dedicated to the Via Alpina, a collection of long distance hikes through the Alps. The longest of these trails runs through all eight countries in the Alps region, starting in Trieste, Italy, and ending in Monte Carlo, the Principality of Monaco. The trails consist of one-day stages – 341 stages in total. It is my intention to explore many of these stages and write about it in a blog. I will pay attention to anything on the way that might be of interest as to language, history, flora and fauna and geology. Of course the culinary aspect will not be neglected!
The road is also a destination in itself and I hope that you as readers will follow me on that road!
