A trip to the roof of Africa: Mount Kilimanjaro

The journey started with a dream of my dad to climb the highest free-standing mountain in the world with his children. Two weeks ago (January 6 at 06:05 AM) we were standing on Uhuru Peak and looking at a sky full of clouds burning in the morning sun. This is the best way to describe […]

Mountain Meru is more beautiful

The days before our departure we had the necessary tests done, which is of course different from […]
