THE ENGLISH EDITION – how to order:
The English edition of my GR5 book – Alone Through the Alps: from Lake Geneva to Nice on the GR5, is available HERE as an Amazon Kindle eBook (or co.uk / .de / .fr) If needed, here’s a free Kindle reading application for different devices (PC, Mac, phones, tablets). A PDF alternative can be found at Payhip (requires Paypal or credit card). If having trouble obtaining the book, please contact me at a.rantsu at hotmail.com and we’ll sort it out.
And fear not about my English, after the initial translation, I’ve got superb help from a native English-speaker and avid long-distance hiker for copyediting the book! I hope the book will inspire people to explore the magnificent mountain range of the Alps, and not to be afraid of tackling a true Alpine crossing, as a whole or section by section. To support my writing in the future, please feel free to sent me feedback, spread the word if you liked the book or even leave a short review to Amazon.
