My recent trek to Kilimanjaro with the September 2nd group was a wonderful experience from the moment we arrived at Dublin Airport to returning to same was magical. Jono was a true leader and put us all at ease from the start. Mind you, he could do with getting better “jokes”.He explained everything to us and you could ask him anything day or night. Your company should be proud to have him as a leader. Jeff was always there if we needed him checking to make sure we were all ok, a real professional! The porters and guides were unbelievable, the work they do is phenomenal,an Irishman would not do the work they do. How they carry those big loads up a mountain is unreal. Everything from our tents and bags, their own tents, food, water, toilets, tables, chairs, plates, knives, forks, cooking pots you name it they carry it.Everyday higher and higher and they sing all the way to the top. I wouldn’t have believed the work they do if someone had told me beforehand, but when you see it with your own eyes it is truly inspiring. I had a fabulous time on Kilimanjaro,it was the people that I met who made it for me. Everyone from our group got on really well, not bad for a bunch of “strangers”.What made the trip special for me was not just getting to the top, but the guides and porters always singing and smiling a great bunch of people. People say the Irish are very welcoming but the Tanzanian people are the nicest most friendly people I have ever met, hopefully someday I will get the chance to return. Earth’s Edge is a company that I will travel with again and again as long as I can stay fit. “FUSO IS A LEGEND”.Thank you to you Barbra and Joyce for all your help.
