It seems fitting that this is my 1000th post to The Adventure Blog, as announce that the blog is going to be on a two week hiatus following this post. Tomorrow, March 31st, I’ll be heading off to Tanzania to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro and then take in a Safari. This has been one of my dream trips for some time, and I’m greatly looking forward to the break, and the adventure.
I fully intend to take a lot of pictures, and blog the whole experience when I get back, but in the mean time, I’ll have very limited Internet access so you’ll just have to wait until my return on April 14th to resume my regular blog schedule. I promise to share the fun when I get home though. 🙂
I’m doing both the climb and the safari with Duma Explorer and I can highly recommend them so far. Through every step of the process they have been very helpful and patient, answering all kinds of questions, and responding to my needs when called upon. I expect that same level of service will continue when I arrive in Tanzania, as they have been a joy to work with so far. If you’re planning a trip to Africa soon, you’ll definitely want to give them a look.
Wish me luck on my climb. I hope to report back with a successful summit. This will be the highest altitude that I’ve ever been, and while we talk about 8000m peaks around here quite regularly, this will be a nice challenge and personal goal for me. I’ll be back soon. Everyone be safe!
