Calum Burke reflects on the Journey to Tanzania…

We have arrived at Addis airport, after 7 hours on our flight from London. Including a 1hr delay. Even at 6 am, its a hive of colour and activity.

We now have a little wait before arriving at Kilimanjaro at lunchtime. We are all so excited and nervous.

All our training and prep is now finished and there is not much else we can do to prepare for the climb.

I’ve been a little nervous and feeling a little sick from my malaria tablets. Between watching films and sleeping, I’ve spent some time praying and reflecting on the week ahead.
