Kilimanjaro countdown: 3 days to go!!

That’s 3 DAYS until I fly to Nairobi, and 6 until the climb starts.

In preparation, I have not drunk any Diet Coke in the last ten days… Anyone who knows me will know that this is a disproportionately big deal, as it’s normally rare that I go more than a day without a can or bottle (tut tut, I know). But the thought of experiencing any kind of caffeine withdrawal on top of whatever else Kilimanjaro might throw at me made it a no-brainer…

Also, I’ve packed!

I think I may repack before I leave just to triple check I have everything, especially as I am still purchasing various bits and pieces – nothing like last minute hey? But at least the majority of my stuff is nestled safely in my bags ready to go.

Here’s the proof:

Packed and (nearly) ready for Kilimanjaro!!

Now for one more read through the kit list…
