The English edition of my GR5 book – Alone Through the Alps: from Lake Geneva to Nice on the GR5, is now available HERE as an Amazon Kindle eBook. 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.

I hope the book will inspire people to explore the magnificient 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 constructive feedback, spread the word if you liked the book or even leave a short review to the Amazon page. Super thanks for all who have been helping in this project, especially there in the copyediting department!

The English edition of Alone Through the Alps, from Lake Geneva to Nice on the GR5

ARantanen_GR5_ebook_PROMO_03_ENG

If the Amazon Kindle publishing platform won’t give any surprising problems, the English edition of my GR5 book will be available soon. It’ll be published first only as an eBook but who knows if creating a paperback copy later on.

And fear not about my English, after my initial translation, I’ve got superb help from a native English-speaker and avid long-distance hiker for copyediting the book!

Remember, it’s not a guidebook but a detailed and lively written travel story of my own GR5 hike which, I hope, will inspire people to explore the magnificient mountain range of the Alps, and not to be afraid of tackling a true Alpine crossing. Stay tuned!

GR5 BOOK – NOW AVAILABLE!

Finally I can proudly present my first book, Yksin halki Alppien, although I’m of course nervous to hear how people like it. Anyway, this long but very rewarding project is now done! I hope the people who read it would feel the greatness of the magnificient hiking trail called GR5. The book tells the tale how my one month solo hike through the French Alps went in the summer 2013.
