Start Tour du Mont Blanc - Over Col de Balm into Triant - Switzerland.
After hearing of a fatal avalanch on Mont Blanc & the two main summit tracks being closed we were expecting plenty of people to have changed their plans and to now do the TMB.
After arriving at la Tour (Start TMB & meeting point for Utracks self guided tour) I got to the chalet just as the rain was starting.
Expecting a co-ordinator or something I stood in reception for about 10 min, i then saw some brown paper bags on a counter just to the left and one had my name on it, it had my maps and accommodation vouchers in it. (What have I got myself in for???) No one there to tell me which way to go or where to start i was a little unsure. I then heard some aussie voices coming from the other room. I saw 6 people, 2 of which were about my age. I introduced myself to ther younger girl Elisa, aussie living in London, who then introdues me to the rest of her family. James, her cousin 23, her Mum & Dad, James's Dad & another Uncle. I asked if could tag along with them and they were happy to have me.
The rain eased off about 1 hour into the walk and the rest of the day was easy walking. Dinner was awesome!!!! Best vegie soup I have ever had, the accomodation was really nice too.
