The Traveling Journal Project: Mt. Kilimanjaro!!!!

Mt. Kilimanjaro!!!! One of my dream hike trip. When I got an update from our keeper that “#The Traveling Journal Project is now in Mt. Kilimanjaro” I got so excited!

Here’s the note from Ingvild:

“Endelig var det tid for vår største utfordring på denne fantastiske reisen gjennom verden! Denne historien vil ta dere til Afrikas tak og gir dere vår opplevelse av å bestige Kilimanjaro.”

“Finally it was time for our biggest challenge on this amazing journey through the world! This story will take you to Africa’s roof and give you our experience of climbing Kilimanjaro.”

As I follow the journey of these two travelers, I can say that this one really was an amazing accomplishment. I can only imagine the excitement rushing through their veins as they stepped into Africa’s highest peak!

“Endelig kunne vi juble høyt! Det var ingen tvil om at vi nå befant oss på Uhuru Peak,  5895 m.o.h. Vår drøm om å bestige Afrikas høyeste fjell var nå blitt en virkelighet. Det var en helt spesiell følelse, og vi smilte fra øre til øre da vi tok vårt velfortjente seiersbilde sammen med hele gjengen. På grunn av den tynne luften var det anbefalt å ikke oppholde seg der mer enn 10 minutter. Vi så utover det tørrkledde landskapet som snart skal dekkes av store snømengder når regnsesongen kommer. Mestringsfølelsen var stor, og blide og fornøyde snudde vi etter å ha klart reisens største utfordring.

Endelig var det tid for vår største utfordring på denne fantastiske reisen gjennom verden! Denne historien vil ta dere til Afrikas tak og gir dere vår opplevelse av å bestige Kilimanjaro.”

“Finally we were able to cheer loud! There was no doubt that we now found ourselves at Uhuru Peak, 5895 m Our dream of climbing Africa’s highest mountain was now become a reality. It was a very special feeling and we smiled from ear to ear when we took our well-earned victory picture with the whole gang. Because of the thin air, it was recommended not to stay there more than 10 minutes. We looked beyond the dry-covered landscape that will soon be covered by heavy snowfalls when the rainy season comes. Coping feeling was great, cheerful and happy, we reversed after having managed the journey greatest challenge.

Finally it was time for our biggest challenge on this amazing journey through the world! This story will take you to Africa’s roof and give you our experience of climbing Kilimanjaro.”
