 trip over the European alps (E5)
 1988 and 1990  


E5 Overview picture courtesy of Thorsten Kunkel. Here are some pictures of our very first hiking trip abroad. It took us over the European alps along the European long-distance walk number E5. The first part was completed in summer 1988, and there was a  short followup in summer 1990. We actually stopped the second trip because I was quite sunburned after only one day of hiking. Since then I'll never forget  a hat and some sun-blocker when I am "on tour". Both trips are some  240km+75km over the alps. Quite nice landscape, but quite polpular and crowded at the same time, if you do it in the very summer months.

Some links & other stuff:
Well, try an internet search engine with "E5" as keyword. You get everything from chess games to streetmaps, and - clap your hands now - two pages on this track, additionally to a quite general site on European Long Distancs tracks: As there is not that much electronic information, we should stick to old fashion paper. Here are some books to read - not necessarily on this track, but maybe nice to read when doing the track. Anyway, I take this opportunity to list some of my favourite alpine-books:
