I have since recovered fully and would love to trek to base camp. I am able to furnish my airfare and personal expenditures. I also own my own drones and videotape everything already! Thanks for the consideration.

  5. Hello !
    Visiting Everest camp base is not on l’y a dream, it is also why I train since 2 tzars. I leave nearby French Pyrénées moutains and go hiking almost every week, by every season.
    Moutains are like a close friend… someone I miss, where I can laugh, be happy or deeply grateful. But also where I can cry, confident, or share my deepest soul and will always be here to listen . It is in the earth before and after me. That is why I respect them above everything and really care about their past, present and future.
    This trek respresents a lot for me ; I would meet « grand family » of my regular friends , where this particular feeling could take a deep sense of humility. This area attract me to meet the most humble people which, even at the other side of the earth, understand what I feel, what I need and what we troughly share…

  10. Hello,

    My name is Matt. At this very moment I am taking a break to write these words from learning for my judge exam here in Poland. It is my dream job as I will be able to make real change for the people around me, but then again it requires all kinds of non-Mount Everest related tasks to be completed. This year me and my wife are also trying to have our first baby. So, pretty soon I will be “too old for this stuff”.
    And this stuff – meaning travelling and especially spending any time in the near vicinity of mountains is in the top things I love. And truth be told – the Himalayas have always been my dream, especially since they are an epicentre of Buddhist religion, which I feel particularly inclined to.
    I would be over the moon and so grateful for the opportunity to come and experience this wonderful adventure. Plus I think I could really fit in – I am sporty, cheerful, never compain when in the mountains (my wife can attest to that) and I speak 6,5 languages if you count Polish, and I think you really should. Plus I did some amateur photo shoots and read some books, so I know where to point the camera.

    Hope to hear from you – and whether we meet or not – safe travels 🙂
