Mostafa Salameh’s extraordinary journey began with his birth to Palestinian refugee parents in Kuwait in 1970. Through a chance meeting he came to Edinburgh where he studied hospitality and read widely in Sufi religious philosophy and world belief systems. Here he had a profoundly religious experience which was to change the direction of his entire life. One night Mostafa dreamt that he was standing atop Mount Everest reciting the call to prayer. With no prior experience or training, he decided he would follow his vision and climb. He failed to summit Everest twice before reaching the summit in 2008 – he went on to become the first Jordanian Palestinian ever to reach the North Pole and summit all seven highest peaks in the world. Yet exploring is only half the story.
