Since 2015 I have decided to add pictures of people I have met while travelling. Most of them are my couchsurfing hosts or guests but also holiday resorts owners or tourist guides.

 

Big thanks to our guides on Mt. Kilimanjaro who not even helped us to successfully climb the highest mountain in Africa but became also good friends. Paulo and Abdala were really great guides and the best people we could possibly ask for on the mountain. (Mt. Kilimanjaro, Tanzania, February 2017)

After our successful climb to Mt. Kilimanjaro we had 3 days to spare and to explore areas around Moshi town. We spent 2 nights in very nice hotel where we met Esther and Walter who work there and were the best and friendliest hotel staff I’ve ever met. We went together for dinner and to disco to get drunk even during their shift 🙂 (Moshi, Tanzania, February 2017)
