The scariest and most exciting thing I have ever done

Agreeing to climb Mt Kilimanjaro is probably the scariest and most exciting thing I have ever done! Honestly, I am not the most outdoorsy person which most of my friends and family can confirm but I know this will be a once in a lifetime experience. Since I don’t know when the opportunity will arise for me again, I thought why not. I think that going on this journey will help me in getting to know myself better and also show me that I can achieve anything I set my mind too.

I feel like as much as I read online about other people’s experiences, I still don’t know what to expect. I am really looking forward to meeting new people on this journey and hopefully from my experience I can encourage others to take the leap! I mean not everyone can say that they have reached the highest peak in Africa!
