Check it off the Bucket List: Climbing Mt Kilimanjaro

March 25, 2013 at 10:57 am Leave a comment

A college friend of mine kept a bucket list. When we met, neither of us knew that by the time we were seniors she would be able to cross one of those goals off of her list. Surprisingly, it was an unlikely line item; especially for someone so young. Climbing Kilimanjaro isn’t a chance a lot of twenty-something’s take, but she did, and she did so with gusto.

My friend’s opportunity came through a study abroad program in Africa. She spent a semester there exploring and learning about the culture and history of the continent.  One of the outings involved a picnic in the mountains. Little did she know, she would spend most of that day climbing Kilimanjaro, enjoying a picnic, and then gearing up for the decent. At 5 in the morning stateside my phone rang. Groggy and confused I picked it up and the words, “I did it! I actually did it,” greeted my ears. She proceeded to excitedly recount her day; neither one of us cared about the time difference anymore. It remains one of the best wake-up calls of my life.

Of course, there is one thing people don’t tell you at that age: sometimes you don’t just take an opportunity, you create it. That’s what Zara Tours is all about. So for those of you who haven’t had the pleasure of climbing Kilimanjaro, and still want to cross it off your bucket list, now’s your chance.
