I've been rewriting my Charlotte drabble, and think that escaping from Briesau to the Italian border (in summer) on foot in only two days perhaps isn't realistic. Innsbruck is only 30 minutes from Italy, but that's by car and without the detour through the southern Tirol mountains. How long do you think it should take roughly?

What time of year is the drabble set in? Obviously it would be much harder going in the depths of winter - but the heat would be very tiring in summer.

I reckon you could walk from Pertisau to Mayrhofen in a day, google maps suggests it would take just over 9 hours. Mayrhofen is pretty close to the border but I don't know what the terrain is like en-route, it looks like there's a road most of the way which suggests it isn't too mountainous.

I don't think two days is implausiable gven good conditions but if you were escaping you would probably be moving under cover, maybe avoiding main roads. So I would guess 3-4 days

I would love to do this myself!
