If we were to do it all over again, what would we do differently?
Before our mountain adventure we both lived quite a luxurious city life. Basic needs like a hot shower, central heating and a working toilet we took for granted. If the heating e.g. didn’t work we just called someone to fix it for us.
On the mountain we led a do-it-all-yourself life. In principle we are responsible for all the utilities and their functioning. If anything did not work on the mountain, we would always try to fix it ourselves first before we would call someone. One reason is of course financial, the other reason was our wish to be as self reliant as possible.
Because of this approach we learned our lessons.. the hard way. Failure meant growth. You can benefit in multiple ways of our shared mistakes and lessons.
