    • Excellent, Elina! I’d love to hear what you think. Do you think you’d climb it a second time sometime in your life? I would love to bring back the experience. I’m setting out for something much mellower in a month – the Wild Coast Meander in South Africa. Nights in nice inns along the way, porters carrying your stuff, excellent meals cooked by someone else, and a bit of walking in between every day. Sounds nice!

  1. No second time, I am old women and must hurry and do some other things.

    Now I am om my way to Greenland and trekking Arctic Circle Trail alone. I have your Kili book with me for rainy days. Dry hydrated food and tent, No luxury but the nature and silence.

    Have a nice time you too!

  2. Oh how wonderful, that sounds like an amazing experience! Makes mine coming up like pure luxury, what with the porters. You are right though, sometimes nothing beats silence. I’m honored you’re taking my book to the Arctic Circle:)
