    De reis was fantastisch! Een echte aanrader en ik had geluk om precies in de goede week aanwezig te zijn waarin de herstkleuren zich van hun beste kant lieten zien.

    Ik ging voor de herfstverkleuringen in New England en het was inderdaad zo mooi als ik verwacht had.

    Appalachian trail

    A good opportunity to see the autumn colours in New England.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The Franconia Ridge-clear day and stunning views. Tied for first place with an afternoon in Baxter State park, after heavy rain in the morning, the sun came out and lit up everything.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Mike and Pete were good fun-but Pete needs to slow his hiking speed to keep the group more or less together, and Mike needs to cut some of the country music from his iPod in the bus. Apart from that, well organised, attentive to detail and we reached all our destinations/campsites on time. The issue (already reported to Exodus) is that neither leader had actually hiked Mt. Katadhin or Owl Peak (alternative to Katadhin) so their advice on the climbs was not based on experience. Having said that, we all got up and down our respective peaks in one piece.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Beautiful countryside, lovely autumn colour (when the sun was out) and more pumpkins than it was reasonable to count. Camping adds an extra element of unpredictability, but worth it for the cooking and washing up fun had by most of us.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Our joining instructions had the wrong hotel in Newark resulting in late night journeys to and from the airport to reach the right destination. Not the usual Exodus efficiency.

    WALKING THE APPALACHIAN TRAIL

    An excellent trip run by Grand American Adventures which saw us wondering at the vast forests of Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. The Fall colours really have to be seen to be believed. Stunning.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The many woodland walks, carpeted by leaves, were all magical - even when the sun was not shining. The hardest day physically was the 10 hours spent climbing Mt. Katahdin in Maine's Baxter State Park. Clear blue sky. Long section of scrambling over large boulders. Enlivened on the descent by me inadvertingly head butting a boulder! Two excellent optional activities were taken. A flight in a 6 seater seaplane, with a very knowledgeable pilot. A trip out in a lobster boat. Hauling up 3 creels with there hoped for inhabitants - all thrown back.

    What did you think of your group leader?

     Our 2 leaders were Raine Fryberger and Nicole Bazzuto. Both had excellent rapport with our team of "Leaf Peepers". Every day brought so much good humour and laughter. This trip was an absolute delight (due in no small part to their efforts).

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Just a general level of fitness really. Carrying dollars is best, although it is wise to carry a credit card as well.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Visiting New England in the autumn was a long held ambition. Apart from the maple leaves and the syrup there are two things which will make this trip hard to forget. One were the countless pumpkins in the markets and outside many homes. The latter carved into grinning faces. The other were the Maine lobsters. Every menu in Maine presented a range of lobsters which were available, at very reasonable prices in UK terms. In Maine it is a virtual birth right to eat the lobster. What THEY think about this is of course another matter!!
