    I must say the Alps provide plenty of opportunities for taking some spectacular shots. I have been taking pictures from different regions in the Alps with my trusted Canon EOS-1DS for the last few years, and by far the best pictures in my portfolio have always come areas such as La Chamounix and Val d’Isere. I particularly enjoy taking photos when they have the snowboarding competitions going. I can’t say I’ve ever tried hiking though in the Alps, I’d be interested to know what other people say about this experience.

    Can’t see the point in hiking anywhere near the German side unless you are a carnivore. Not exactly the right preparation for six hours hiking. Give me a nice fresh french salad anytime. At least that’s digestible and won’t require the mountain rescue team out to airlift you off the slopes because of cholesterol [poisoning.

    Yeah right that and killer goats. How come we manage to provide photogenic goats in Nebraska and they can’t do it in the Alps, in their ancient civilization? No one has tamed goats? give me a break. We got thousands of photogenic goats in Nebraska and we don’t have any problems with those bells splitting tourists heads open. Apart from that the people were great. The goats suck.

It’s certainly a case of once visited, never forgotten. Irrespective of whether you use Austria, France, Germany, Italy or even Switzerland as your base you’re sure to enjoy the trip of a lifetime.

    My trip was a blast from start to finish. The people are so friendly and the scenery so magnificent that everything was sheer bliss. I would go again at the drop of a hat it was so wonderful. The food was great and I ate my way through the Alps. You must try the German breakfast, they are just great for loading up wiuth carbs before a days hiking.
