Inspire x5 – Kilimanjaro

Welcome to “Inspiration by five”

A series of posts in which I combine my love for photography and my even greater love for travel in order to leave you feeling inspired.

Once a week, I will choose five moments from my travels from a part of our beautiful world that has captured my attention, drawn me in, anchored a piece of my heart and left me wanting more.

This week’s feature –>  Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania

At 5895 metres (19,341 feet) tall, the ‘Roof of Africa’ is the highest mountain in Africa, the fourth highest of the Seven Summits and the tallest free-standing mountain in the world.

Climbing Kilimanjaro may well be the most physically demanding thing you ever do, but also one of the most rewarding.

Kilimanjaro marked a definite turning point in my life.

Not only did I fulfill a life-long dream. Not only did I surpass any personal limits and limiting beliefs I had consciously or subconsciously found within.

… But Kilimanjaro had led to serendipitous experiences and meetings that would never have happened had I not taken on this challenge. Meetings that have changed the person I would become. Experiences that would alter the course of my life.
