    Plenty of places I'd love to see, but I spend most of my vacation time in the Czech Republic finagling used car imports from the US and visiting with friends and family.

    I've hit six of the seven continents:

    Spain
    Indonesia (Bali)
    Thailand
    Australia-Summited highest mountain
    Canada
    Mexico
    Bahamas
    Jamaica
    Chile
    Bolivia
    Brazil
    Tanzania-Summited Kilimanjaro - highest mountain in Africa

    Liked them all except Jamaica. Spain was terrific and I can't wait to go back. Although part of the US, Hawaii is also one of my favorite destinations.

    I was only in Rio for a few days. The beaches, nightlife, food, drinks (caiparinia), music (samba), and women are great. Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas is an interesting place to check out if you have the time. You do have to be careful where you go as neighborhoods become sketchy quickly. At the time I was heavily involved in martial arts so I visited capoeira and Brazillian Jiu Jitsu Schools which weren't in the best places. People are very friendly and really like to have a good time. Everything revolves around the beach, soccer and samba. You'll definitely enjoy yourself.

    As far as Kili, it was certainly an adventure. You go from an African savannah to a glacier hitting every different climate zone. There are various routes you can take to the summit. The easiest one is known as the coca-cola route (there are wooden huts along the route). I would avoid this one. If you're going to climb it, climb it. Nevertheless, even the easiest route is still difficult (but very doable). The altitude is no joke. The year before me a friend of mine went and was unable to reach the summit due to high altitude sickness which can affect you regardless of how in shape you are. Worse yet one of the persons in their climbing party died. The altitude affects everyone, it's just a matter of how much. Everyone that climbed had blood oxygen saturation levels (I brought an O2 sensor) well below what it would take to have your local doc admit you to the hospital. Luckily with proper acclimatization you can still function.

    I took more challenging and less traveled route, camping out in tents. It took five days to get to the summit and two to get down. It is a physical challenge, but more importantly a mental one.

    Once you have more concrete plans let me know and I can give you more info on gear, guides, where to stay and some pre/post climb safaris you may want to check out. I also have a bunch of pictures and video.

    Until then:

    When you're in Brazil pick up some commercial coca mate/tea. Not sure you'll be able to take the leaves into the country.
