Kilimanjaro on a whim

Mid August and needing a break from the Big Smoke, a chance conversation with a friend looking for guinea pigs to test a route up Kilimanjaro for a growing travel company … well, why not ! Small team, less popular and more scenic route … all seemed a great idea.

In spite of a number of long days walking, including a midnight to 8am trek to the summit just shy of 20,000ft (with a 6 hour walk down !) it was a fabulous experience and well worth it to test the body and resolve … and maybe get a few snaps.

Thanks to Nick Hollis and Fitways Adventures for both organizing and getting us all up and back from the summit ! Now to test a few more of the trips I heard so much about !
