When we moved to Seattle in 2011, we used to go for long trips in car and used to look at the peaks all around us with wonder. The changing seasons make the appearance awesome. We joined Asha for Biking and completed the STP in 2017 which gave an all round training that made the final ride enjoyable. We heard about Kilimanjaro and Everest Base Camp few times and wanted to achieve that too. We started training and enjoyed the hike. The trails taught us how to lose in the surroundings and become one with the nature. The tiresome climbs gave us immense satisfaction of achievement. The transformation happened both internally and externally. When we climbed Mailbox for the first time we couldn’t even walk for 1 hour. But at the end of the training, we could reach the peak.
We signed up for Kilimanjaro as it is the highest achievement within the short period of training. We both like to travel and do adventures. This trip is going to be both. It is a long standing wish to see wild animals in their natural habitat. Also Africa is one of the continents we haven’t visited and want to visit. We are confident that the training we received from Asha will make us to achieve this goal and set new goals.
