Vicki’s Travel Diary

Tuesday, 09 Jul 2013

Location: Penrith, England

MapI'm off again on my travels - this time it's paid work! I'm leading a school expedition to Tanzania for a month, which includes an ascent of Kilimanjaro. There are 9 students, aged 17, and 3 teachers, so 13 of us altogether. I travel down to Hayes, in Middlesex,tomorrow, for our Final Preparation Day on Thursday 11 July, then we fly out to Dar Es Salaam that evening. I have to report in to the expedition company on pre-determined days, so hopefully I will have time to add to this after my reports. I don't know if I'll be able to get photos on easily, so I may have to add them when I get home. We arrive back in the UK on 7 August. It's all very exciting, especially as this is the first expedition I've led. It's lucky I like being out of my comfort zone!!!
So I'l try to add things when I can. Next stop Dar Es Salaam, followed a couple of days later by a 12 hour bus journey to Arusha. Watch this space!
