Kibo summit, Kilimanjaro, Tanzania
“[…] in some way, he could work the fat off his soul the way a fighter went into the mountains to work and train in order to burn it out of his body”
― Ernest Hemingway, The Snows of Kilimanjaro and Other Stories
The Kibo summit on the volcano of Kilimanjaro, Tanzania, is the highest free-standing mountain on Earth. This snow-capped volcano, rising alone above cultivated farmlands, has been poetically described by Ernest Hemingway in his famous short story “The Snows of Kilimanjaro”.
When travelling, a thousand ideas can come to an attuned mind. For us, the perfect travel notebook had to be strong enough to protect our notes from the vagaries of weather, yet small enough so you want to keep it with you at all times. We made ours compatible with universal refills, so you can adopt it for the years to come and not worry that you’ll run out of pages before you run out of ideas.
We named our travel notebook KIBO™ as our small homage to the Hemingway novel, since he is the perfect paradigm of the contemporary American writer. A man who could plunge into actions, travel and brave danger one day – then seek inspiration wandering in the streets and cafes of Paris the next. A man of action and poetry, who reached literal and symbolic summits.
