What the team members say
Happiness is found in the little things.
I was most impressed by the people of Tanzania. They made me think about everything we own and we aspire to. So many things that often don’t make us happy. Those people who own much less than us are smiling all the time, they are grateful and act with such inspiring dedication. Once again I realized that happiness and wealth are not proportional.
We all made it!
It was one of the greatest experiences in my life. The day we climbed the summit was extremely difficult and challenging for the whole group. I am very happy that we all made it together and we all got back in good health. I am ready for more!
It was a treat!
I am very pleased with this trip! I had the opportunity to actually rest and be alone with my thoughts. I felt like a princess: hot food for lunch and dinner, hot drinks, great care for our mood and all our equipment – tables, chairs, utensils, tents, sleeping bags – everything carried by these nice local people. We only had to carry our personal backpacks. I’m very happy I did it.
Away from work and to the top!
For me the challenge came with leaving my business with no supervision for 2 weeks. I had to overcome myself and just go for it. Then it was the merciless elevation that compels you to move one step at a time and monitor your breathing – like Tanzanians say “Pole, Pole” (Slowly, Slowly). It was an amazing opportunity to pause life and learn more about myself.
Altitude challenge conquered!
The whole trip in the mountains was impressive, these views, it’s hard to put such beauty into words. On day 4, I got a little worried for my health. We had 20 hours less for acclimatization than planned. At only 4,200 m I felt quite heavy the altitude sickness and the next day we had to climb the top. Fortunately, that evening I adjusted to the conditions, felt better and all fears went away.
