Unterwegs am Alpe-Adria-Trial
Schönste Weise Land und Leute kennenzulernen. Besonders gefallen hat uns, dass wir in einer Woche die verschiedenen Kulturen, Landschaften und auch die Kulinarik der drei Länder erleben durfen. Alle Hotels waren sehr gut und der Koffertransport hat immer tatenlos funktioniert. Das war sicher nicht unsere letzte Reise mit Eurohike!
