We got married in June 2016 and had 2 weeks off for our honeymoon. We didn’t want to travel too far, but we wanted to go somewhere special, memorable and private. After a bit of research, we found the perfect idea; we would hike the E5 trail from Obertsdorf in Germany, through the Austrian Alps, and into Northern Italy.
After the stress of the wedding, escaping into the fresh mountain air away from mirrors, makeup and wifi was exactly what we needed! It was just us, a small backpack and the mountains.
We walked an average of 10 miles a day, up and down the peaks and through the valleys. We spent the first two nights in alpine mountain huts and the latter 3 in deserted ski chalet’s. Each night we celebrated with an ice cold beer and a hearty meal of pasta or stew.
