I love rock climbing, trekking and generally being adventurous, so when I first heard about the Kilimanjaro trek, it just seemed perfect!

The atmosphere amongst the group was definitely the best thing about the trek - the feeling of togetherness was indescribable. I wouldn't have wanted to do it with anybody else! The toughest thing was summit night: it was dark, cold and seemed endless. I got through it by thinking not just about myself, but the 4 others I was walking with, as they were worse for wear! I think that kept my mind of my own pain.

Getting to the top was amazing! I was completely elated and to know that nearly everyone got to the summit was a lovely atmosphere!
