Journal: What it Feels like to be Followed by Mount Kilimanjaro…

December 28th 2015,

I continued celebrating my birthday side by side with Kilimanjaro. We decided to visit the Kikuletwa Hot Springs that were about two hours away from Arusha passing by Moshi and overlooking the highest mountain in Africa.

You would not feel the presence of it, until you see it, it is a Dragon of its own world, huge and just hanging there between the clouds, we gasped as soon as our eyes met it, it was beyond what the normal eye is used to see. And we kept moving and driving for two hours while Kilimanjaro would never run out of sight. Even the clouds would crawl and expand around the mountain, but Kilimanjaro would not go out of sight.

We were lucky, it was a beautiful day, and a beautiful day for Mount Kilimanjaro. We stayed in contact throughout the drive, and it is as if you are getting to know yourself in reflection to how you continue to see the Mountain. It never hides, and when it does, its shadow would still be looking over at you. It felt like the father of Tanzania, in close contact with its people, its trees, its houses, its ground, its air, its sky, its breeze, its sun, and its clouds. Everyone knew Kilimanjaro, and everyone praised it. Unshakable, unmovable, you move, and it followed you. Overlooking everyone and everything, like a protector, like a witness, like a massive healer to earth. It sure was worth the two-hour drive and again the two-hour drive back.

Morning Diary 22 – I can’t think of a better day… Spend your day between the beaches and the mountains of Barcelona.

Tuesday, November 18 2014

Barcelona, Spain

Another irresistible sunny day, where me and my bubbly cousin decided to take the day off and bike to the Bogatell beach area for a quick tan before we head towards Montjuic for a sunset view only to realize that the sun sets from the other mountain side which is where the Tibidabo is. Nonetheless, Montjuic is worth a full day for it is one incredibly huge park that is just filled with magical nature, and for the love of nature, you do need a little nature self time every once in a while. I also probably haven’t mentioned this before in my posts, but my best advice for all those who are planning to visit Barcelona is to rent a bicycle as soon as you arrive. Getting around is very easy and it becomes so much easier and much more fun by bicycle.

A great folk song for you today by The deep dark woods, All the money I had is gone.

Jura Mountains Oberbalmberg, Solothurn, Switzerland

A week was spent in this beautiful side of Switzerland, where nature is your source of everything. You wake up and sleep breathing the freshest breeze, looking at the most incredible colors of nature and dreaming of the magic that surrounds it. A great space, a great place, and fantastic group of people….

A night in Wadi Rum

I published a page few days ago about my night in Wadi Rum. It is not my first time there but it sure is my first night. And this is just the beginning for me for I have found gems in the desert that night.

Wadi Rum is a desert in Jordan with several available camps that you can sleep in for a very low price. The camps are clean, neat and safe “as far as I have experienced & heard”.

You need to have a sleeping bag “if you wish to sleep under the starlight & not inside your tent” you also need to have a “Hygienic Kit” and some “tissue paper” for if it is needed.

As for what can be done at the desert… It is countless but I will count a few that I have done in the 2 days I spent there:
1. Camp 2. Hike 3. Mountain Climb 4. Slide on Sand 5. Drink Bedouin Tea 6. Eat Bedouin Food “delicious to a certain extent” 7. Star Gaze 8. Meditate 9. Visit Bedouin Tents 10. Ride Camel 11. Fly on a Hot air balloon “that I actually didn’t do yet” 12. Watch the Sunset in the Middle of Desert until the Desert is only lit by the Moon & Star Lights 13. Watch the Sunrise 14. Drive inside the Desert “You will need a 4by4” 15. Meet Bedouins & listen to their Desert Stories 16. Build a Fire at Night & Drink more Tea 17. Walk BareFoot while it’s Day Light.
