The stunning coastline of Newfoundland and Labrador. That's not where the similarities to the Emerald Isle end though, talk to anyone here and you'll pick up on the lolling brogue I'm more used to hearing in Cork or Kilarney. An island at the far eastern edges of the continent, Newfoundland has been isolated for a very long time, the sea dictating life in every possible way. That isolation has preserved not only the accents from the Old Country, but also traditions and family histories. A huge place in a geographical sense, the sparse population and community feel make it a province where everyone seems to know everyone else and when they ask how you're doing, they actually care. Can you tell in I'm enjoying my time here?
It’s the highest peak in Africa, the
world-famous Mount Kilimanjaro 🌋
The impressive peak rises to an elevation of 19,341ft (5,895m), and is the 4th tallest peak out of The 7 Summits. Located in Tanzania, this now dormant stratovolcano has 3 different peaks all with their own volcanic cone. This is a picture of “Kibo”, the tallest and most pictured summit on the mountain. The other 2 summits are known as “Mawenzi” and “Shira.” There are 7 great trails to hike up the mountain, all with varying difficulties, and lengths. If you’re looking to summit the mountain you should do some ample research. The climb is not as challenging as summiting something in the Andes or Himalayas, but it still requires training and planning. It is a great starting point for your first summit out of The 7 Summits.

If you look to others for fulfillment, you will never be fulfilled. If your happiness depends on money, you will never be happy with yourself. Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the world belongs to you!
Finding your feet 👣
Yes they are always attached to you I know that! I am more looking at finding your feet in life. They carry you everywhere and it’s up to you to choose their next path. I look forward to seeing where my feet go next! .
P.S. you cannot beat stripy fluffy walking socks 👍
It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves... 🍃🌎⛰ #travellove

History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people.
