Journey the Top of Europe – Tour du Mont Blanc

 The Alps are well known to all as they cover areas in south-central Europe through Slovenia, Italy, Austria, Germany, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, and France. Although it is beautiful along its entire length, there is one section that many tourists look up to, and that is Mont Blanc.

The Tour du Mont Blanc or TMB is the most popular long distance walk in Europe, circling Mont Blanc and covering a distance of 170 km. One person who took on the TMB is Arune Meistaite. It took Meistaite 9 days to travel the 170 km, and she returned with some amazing photos from her journey. If you wanted to know what the tallest summit in Europe looks like, take a look at this beautiful photo series.
