This years vacation is picked thanks to Google-Maps. We looked for a valley with a campsite and a lot of hikes. We found Val-di-Rhemes in North Italy, close to Gran Paradiso.
I had still hiking maps from 2007 when hiking with 7 other men in this area, so I knew that these mountains are nice. Hiking trails might change, so we ordered on-line a new hiking map.
And is was a very nice active vacation with perfect weather for camping and hiking and a very nice environement in the Alps.
Here a day to day travel/hiking program. The links to the GARMIN tracks are public. In 11 hiking days we walked 174km, in 68 hours and climbed over 10km.
