GR5 DONE!

What an amazing adventure to hike all the way from Lake Geneva to Nice! I just got back home yesterday and it’s hard to believe that I really did it. When I finally saw the sea after one month of walking, it was just one of the greatest moments in my life.

It’s too soon to write anything else except that everything went just well. Only few really bad weather days, only one minor blister and the walking itself felt so strong that I didn’t really need rest days. Only thing I didn’t like so much was the amount of snow in the first half of the hike… but I kicked and slided myself through it. Here are few photos for the less patient ones, and also statistical summary of the trip (haven’t yet double check the numbers). Now it feels really weird to be back home and to leave very simple life on trail behind.

Thanks for everyone for the support and greetings for all the great people met on trail. All the photos, video and trip report will come in following months as usual.
