Hello and welcome to my little corner of the World Wide Web.
If you’re interested in travelling to some of the more remote places on the planet but don’t have the first clue of how to get there and what you can do when you arrive please bookmark me as we explore this wondrous planet little by little every week.
First up will be climbing Kilimanjaro; it’s by far the most popular topic among friends and family. Is it as hard as everyone says? Did I think I was going to die? What are the toilets like? What does it take to get to the top? And what on earth do you pack for a trip like that?
When I was researching it I found all the blogs frustratingly light on details and all had the same few money shots for photos. Please join me over the next few weeks as I take you through what I felt day by day on the mountain. Hopefully you’ll laugh, you’ll cry and you will eventually come away from it with a sense that it is possible and why you should absolutely consider doing it.
