My Way Alps June-12 ~ Who's going?

Hello friends,

Who will be going during these dates (12 June - 23 June, 2024) with the Rick Steve's Alps My Way Tour ? I know we have a 'roster' in our documents but thought we could chat a bit ... get to know one another... ask specific questions related to our dates, etc.

Our little family of 5 adults (Mom, Dad and our 23 year old triplets) are looking forward to this 'once-in-a-lifetime' trip :) It's only 2 weeks away! yippee!!

Rick Steve's European PBS episodes helped our family through a very difficult time in 2020. It is even a miracle that we're able to take this journey. We are full of gratitude and thankfulness.. and JOY (!) to be together as a family and see places we once only dreamed about ~

Prost !

Hello!
We are from the Bay Area in Ca and are going on the Alps trip June 12-24.! My husband, myself and our 26 year old daughter will be on the tour. Very much looking forward to it. It is getting close and I'm starting to keep- an eye on the weather and figure out how to lighten the load with the packing. It seems like there could be very cold , windy weather at the top of some of those peaks. Speaking of which, does anyone have any concerns about the altitude? Or will we be gradually increasing in altitude and adjusting without problem? I know when we go to Lake Tahoe all is usually fine, so it is probably similar.
Hope to hear from some more Alps travelers!

thanks,
Kelly

Wonderful to know you, Kelly!

Any others out there packing / planning for their RS Alps My Way tour ?

Great question about altitude ~ I hadn't even thought of that....

Mitzi,
I did this tour in August of 2022. You will absolutely love it! With regard to packing, I’d recommend waterproof jackets and shoes. I made the mistake of taking a water resistant jacket and shoes and got soaked to the skin on our hike near Bolzano. Once we got to Switzerland the weather turned beautiful.

Have a wonderful trip.
