My first summit…….
This is the beginning of many more trips to the mountains. Of course I didn’t know this back then but at the time of writing (December 2007) I had 58 more summits on my record and hopefully many more to come.
But to be honest, at that time when I was going up I never wanted to do one more again, ever, period! I was out of shape and dragging my *** towards the summit. Besides that I moved from Holland not even 6 months ago which is at sea-level.
But as soon as I reached the summit and gave myself some time to look around and soak up the views I was sold. I wanted to climb every peak I could see.
A great beginning of a great journey.
