Kilimanjaro Climb September 2019

If Carlsberg did expeditions, they wouldn’t beat this one. Probably one of the most amazing experiences of my life! The attention to detail, constant care and craic was second to none. I’ve never been so prepared for any trip or hike ever. Yet still blown away by the fantastic experience that was to unfold. Testament to such a professional and enjoyable approach by Earth’s Edge, and their willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty. One special memory that will remain with me forever, was when our guides started singing as we began our ascent to the summit, their energy and kindness lifted us to the top. What’s more they continued singing uninterrupted until we reached the summit. With hats bopping to the rhythm of the music into the sunrise at Stella Point – we knew we had made it. MAGIC! This exemplified all that Earth’s Edge has to offer and how they empower their team. For everything else, there’s MasterCard. We were blessed with the weather which made the experience even more special. As clichéd as it sounds – Ralph Waldo Emerson put it so aptly: “Life is a journey, not a destination.” My journey climbing Mount Kilimanjaro was one that will resonate with me forever and has opened my eyes to different cultures, new perspectives, a desire to keep travelling (with Earth’s Edge) and most importantly, I descended with friends for life. A million thanks for making this bucket list moment happen – an exceptional experience on an extraordinary expedition.
