Meet Hank & Lynne

Cape Town Skies - Hank

Lynne always had a dream to one day climb Mount Kilimanjaro. When we got married, the last thing Hank wanted was for our marriage to jeopardize that dream. Soon after we got married, we put our combined 100 item bucket list together, and shortly thereafter we started to plan towards the dream to climb Kilimanjaro.

Kilimanjaro turned into an Everest Base Camp Trek instead, and we realised our lives would never be the same again.

The Everest Base Camp Trek adventure confirmed what we always knew – we desperately wanted more out of life than just the mundane routine of working 9 to 5 jobs. We realised that if we didn’t make a deliberate decision to experience life in a fuller way, life was simply going to pass us by.

We started planetbasecamp.com with the idea that we could help others who also have a desire to break out of the comfort zone and to see the marvel and the beauty the world has to offer. We are so glad you are here to share in our adventures. We hope our site will inspire you to travel, to explore and to discover.

While we were trekking (it was more like suffering) on the Everest Base Camp Trek, we realised we wanted to write all about it when we got back home. It wasn’t long thereafter that planetbasecamp.com was born.

The idea was that we would start an Adventure Travel Blog where we can share our experiences, as well as tips that would be of great benefit to everyone. We also use this site as a platform where our incredible photos can be acquired through the online sales channel.

In addition, we also plan adventures and / or holiday trips for those who need help ticking off their bucket lists!
