Lauren Hey Jamie-lee, i love spur of the moment travel. Sounds like you will definitely get up to some adventure in Europe soon. Todd and I (founders of globetrooper) will be living in Berlin for 3 months starting mid-Sept, so it would be cool to meet up with you if plan to swing through.
inguvap hi, can you tell me where you are starting from? How do you prepare for the trip? I have this bug in my mind and I want to do it in 2012 too. I live in NJ. I am a female of age 41, fairly decent shape but nowhere near where I need to be for this trip.
Lauren Hi Sophia, I climbed Kilimanjaro a few years ago and I think it's a great starting point if you want to eventually head for Everest. I love big dreams! And I'd love to organise a trek with you on a different mountain. Denali has always called my name :) and anything in the French Alps would be really great too - and closer for you.
