Plan: Day 58 - The journey home
Actual: And so it was, with sunny views over hillsides planted with vines, past snow capped mountains, a large looking moon peeking over a rocky summit, the train sped along beside airports and motorways on its way past Lake Geneva to the airport.
Here's a message we sent from the train.
So, here are the final statistics:
Cumulative distance (planned in brackets):
860 km (802), 61000 metres ascent (60300), 300 hours (roughly!) walking (327).
No of summits visited: 11
No of cols or passes visited: 86
Highest point: Rocciamelone - 3528 metres
Hours waterproofs worn: 4
No of English encountered whilst walking: 11 from Ramblers Holidays doing the Tour of Monte Rosa (15 not walking)
All our memory cards are full (hence the lack of a 'postcard image' today, Sue's boots have been binned, we are satiated with mountain air and acclimatised to 3000 metres.
So painting the house should be a breeze.
We are home....
