Was watching a food show on burritos and now I miss SF 🌯🌮 Now, if only I could go back and be able to afford the rents 😬 Clean shaves, bad haircuts, all smiles - September, 2010. #sanfrancisco #california #sf #sfo #ca #bayarea #Cali #USA #America #goldenstate #goldengatebridge #passionpassport #travelstoke #lonelyplanet #bbctravel #travelnoire #tlpicks #travel #gothere #huffpostgram #tripadvisorpic #travelgram #instatravel #natgeo #natgeotravelpic #livetravelchannel #500px #airbnb #ifoundawesome #indiansummer

Joy Jump at the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro - even when your eyes are filled with tears, your face is crusted with snot, every limb is numb, you haven't bathed in 7 days, you're doped up on Imodium and you've spent most every night of the previous week in your tent engulfed in despair and doubting that you'll be able to take another step- you still find the strength to joy jump at 19,341 ft because it's the highest peak in Africa and because you made it and because #GirlTrek it's a lifestyle. On the day of the summit attempt, when my body would refuse to cooperate, I would repeat to myself "I am Vanessa, daughter of Annette, daughter of Olympia, daughter of Melvina, daughter of Katie" and I would remind myself that I had come to the mountain to celebrate life, to help create a new legacy for my family, to break generational curses and to leave a blueprint for others. By the grace of God, with the help of the most amazing guide crew on the planet (literally, I will need to do a whole other post about this), supported by 11 other amazing individuals and with the prayers and well wishes of so many - thank you for all of the messages and text - I made it safely up (and down that's a whole other ordeal 😲) the mountain. At this moment I am most thankful that I get to return home to @marty.garrison and our beautiful warm home with all the comforts a girl could want. 🙌🏾 #kilimanjaro #blackgirladventures #blackgirlhealing #forceofnature #travelnoire #ultimatekilimanjaro
