People didn't need to knowPaige Hudson’s name to know her story. For people trekking upMt Kilimanjaro“thatwomanfromFlorida” had become the stuff of legend.

Guides,porters, other hikers all wanted to know if the 52-year-old former elementary school teacher had finally made it to the top on her third try.

“It was so funny,”Hudsonsaid Monday afternoon, only days after returning fromTanzania. “I know I was there three times, but I don’t like to count the second because I was sick when I got there.”

Hudson first tackled themountainlastDecember, but stopped just shy of the top. In June, she flew overseas again with the intent to reach the highest peak, but three days in, strep throat and a sinus infection forced her to turn back.

Thereafter, the duo started planning for this historic and unique event by raising money for their trip to Tanzania and in particular Kilimanjaro Mountain. They also informed their relatives about their plan to have their wedding on Mount Kilimanjaro of which they got the green light from them.
They arrived in the country last week and started their seven day Kilimanjaro expedition through Machame route on 20th September, 2014 and spend an overnight at Machame Hut waiting eagerly for their wedding on the following day.  Zara Tours Company based in Moshi, organized the Kilimanjaro climb.

When you're in the business of hosting thousands of travellers as they set off for the summit of one of the world's most famous mountains, you'd think you'd seen it all.Yet for Zainab A. Ansell, there's always something new and inspiring on the horizon.
