Climb that mountain

Because in the end, you won't remember the time you spent working in the office of mowing your lawn.Climb that goddamn mountain.

Eight years ago, I was making my way up Mount Kilimanjaro. Our days started with a cup of chai tea and ended with group singing and dancing.  It was a six day journey and one of the hardest things I have ever done. Long hot days of walking, cold nights in tents on rough ground, holes in the ground for washrooms and no showers. By the end, we were all physically and mentally exhausted. Beginning the last section of the climb at midnight felt almost impossible, but getting to the top, just as the sun was rising over the ‘rooftop of Africa’, is a memory I will never forget!

    • Awesome! Kili was amazing, but definitely one of the hardest things I’ve ever done.

      • sounds amazing. I understand that feeling. I recently did the there and back hike on the Fundy Foot Path, it was the hardest thing I ever done. 5 days of up and down exhausting but satisfying. I will get there for sure. Keep up the awesome adventures
