Recently I posted on this blog about Africa's six tallest peaks, so I thought I'd follow up with more about the highest and most famous of those: Tanzania's Mount Kilimanjaro (dubbed "Kili," for short).

  • In May 2021, my home country's Ministry of the Environment and the storied Italian Alpine Club announced an ambitious €35m, 13-year plan to extend Italy's existing Sentiero Italia (the Grand Italian Route) by roughly 1,000km to form a new path connecting each of its 25 national parks, including those on the islands of Sardinia and Sicily. When it's completed in 2033, the new route, known as the Sentiero dei Parchi (Path of the Parks) will cross each of Italy’s 20 regions, pass through six ÚNESCO World Heritage sites and stretch nearly 8,000km. A BBC Travel piece provided more details and context around that time: https://www.bbc.com/travel/article/20210517-the-sentiero-dei-parchi...
