Explore on Foot has 15 medium distance trails which are between 3-15 days. Hikers can use these to add a hike to there Europe vacation or choose from 7 day hikes she included.
Cassandra really encourages hikers who travel to learn local politics, news and language if you can. She feels you will have a lot better experience. “Be a visitor, not a tourist,” she says there is a difference between people who come out of their hotel to take a few pictures and then go right back into their room and the people who integrate with locals.
