What to Pack for Glacier Hiking in the Alps

What to Pack for Glacier Hiking in the Alps

I started writing this post prior to my recent glacier hiking trip to the Alps whilst I was packing, and I'm so glad that I didn't finish it as I got my packing COMPLETELY WRONG.

10 Things I Learnt on The Spaghetti Tour

10 Things I Learnt on The Spaghetti Tour

Zermatt
I've just returned from the Alps on a version of what is known as the Spaghetti Tour. It’s named as such because although it starts and ends in Switzerland, most nights are spent in Italy eating generous portions of, you guessed it, spaghetti (actually just general pasta, we didn’t have any spaghetti). So I’m sharing 10 things I learnt on the Spaghetti Tour, from how to safely walk on glaciers to several toilet related learnings.

Trekking Mont Blanc to the Matterhorn

Trekking Mont Blanc to the Matterhorn

nce a year my dad and I make time for a hiking holiday together. Sometimes this is in the UK (Hadrian's Wall, The West Highland Way and Coast to Coast have been our favourites) and sometimes we venture further afield. Recently, we completed a 'best of' version of the Mont Blanc to Matterhorn trek where we enjoyed some quality daddy-daughter time.
