Our Kokoda Blog

This is an account of the lead up and journey to Kokoda in PNG. This trek has been on our dreams list and I know that Tanya and I will make it to the end. Stay tuned and visit regularly to see our progress.

Thanks Darren and Chris

Shortly after we arrived in Port Moresby we were surprised with a gift each waiting for us from Darren and Chris.  We were allowed to open the presents but had to wait until dinner to find out what they all meant.  How exciting.

 

Dinner couldn’t come quick enough and we all sat around and talked about our Kokoda experience.  Here is a shot of everyone with their gifts and explanation. This was such a spot on and memorable gift…  on behalf of our all of us… thank you.
