First stage on the way to Kilimanjaro

We are in Amsterdam! The first stage on our way to Kilimanjaro.

For the first time, our group is all together – 29 people collected in the waiting lounge waiting for the eight-hour flight that will bring us to Kilimanjaro.  Everyone is tired after the first flight, but excited to be one step closer to our objective.

It is great to meet people who we have only seen on the group website!  These are our climbing partners and the people we will all depend on for the next seven days.

We should all be exhausted – its 3:30 AM Ottawa time, but we are about to start something very special.

Also, the coffee in Holland is really good.

Next stop – Moshi and Kilimanjaro!

    Hi Paul,

    You have no idea how much I love what you’re doing here! Having updates and progress reports means the world to (nervous) me! What an incredible adventure this is and for such important causes; it warms my heart! Hope the flight to Tanzania is smooth and that everyone is feeling relatively good after the long trip. Thanks so much for doing this! Have a fantastic adventure!
