In 2002, my dream came true. I traveled to Tanzania, Africa and climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro. In so many ways, my trip was a life changing experience.

The feeling connected with undertaking a great adventure is fantastic … pushing one’s self beyond self-imposed boundaries and motivating yourself to new levels of personal growth. However, it is not just the climb that inspires me to werite to you today, but also the beauty of Africa itself. That beauty was so wonderfully revealed during several awesome safaris, in the viewing of truly unique and spectacular landscapes, and in my encounters with a culture, artwork, and people so very different from any I have ever known.

Maybe best of all, I consider myself incredibly fortunate to have shared this wonderful experience with some of the friendliest and most interesting people I have ever met. We came together as a group of individual from varied backgrounds sharing an interest in climbing Kilimanjaro, but left as friend who developed camaraderie during our short time together.
