About Me

My photo
After getting my first passport in 2006 and traveling to climb Kilimanjaro in Tanzania my life changed. I began the process of getting rid of all my possessions and traveling the world. Traveling to over 110 countries and all 7 continents, hostels have been my home. This "new life" has taught me what is important and it was NOT accumulating money or possessions. Traveling is the best education. I hope my blog will encourage others to travel. My World Tattoo was a way for me to express my PASSION FOR TRAVEL.

TANZANIA, Kilimanjaro, Machame Hut {3000 meters} to Shira {3840 meters}

Saturday March 11, 2006

The climb was very hard today. We got to camp at 4:30 pm. There were at least 50 spots on the trail where one false step and you would fall 500 feet. You finally get used to the height. The food is not the best. There always seems to be some mystery meat, enough rice for 12 people and some kind of soup which is tasteless. But the scenery is incredible. We have been walking for 2 days and still have not seen the top of the mountain. By the time we summit we will have walked over 30 miles.
