Hello Everyone,

I hope you are all well and have a wonderful and safe Christmas and New Year.  Sorry it has taken me a while to make contact, I haven’t stopped travelling really, between work and flying to Melbourne I haven’t been home much.

Thank you for being the most Wonderful Group of People I have ever had the priviledge of travelling with.  Your friendship and encouragement you all showed to me and each and everyone of us along the track will stay with me for the rest of my life.  My holiday was perfect from start to finish.  If you ever organise a trip all together as a group count me in ;-0) ….( Machu Picchu , Great Wall of China ,Camino de Santiago walk etc would be good adventures! ) My knees have finally recovered, I did head straight back to the gym on my return to Perth , mind you I was a bit easier on myself because of my knees , but my personal trainer Bec showed me no mercy..I guess that is what I pay her for ;-0)

As for Adventure Kokoda , WOW !! I haven’t stopped singing your praises, what an Awesome Professional Company!  You did not disappoint! Adventure Kokoda was everything I had hoped for and more.  Adventure Kokoda is the first Company I have ever come across that has not only been everything they advertised to be , but more!

Chad Thank you ! Thank you Thank you ! You made our trip what it was – the most moving, memorable experience of a lifetime .  Because of you and your knowledge of Kokoda , its history , the relationship  you have with us as a group and the people of PNG, your awesome personality, humour and of course the wonderful poetry ( that was truly awesome and what made the experience so special) , and singing of Danny Boy (my favourite song) made the trip something I will remember and talk about forever.  Not a day goes by that I don’t think of my time in PNG , it truly has left a foot print on my heart, especially  the people of PNG what warm, caring, beautiful people.

I have finally worked out how to replay the video camcord (blonde coming out in me) and yayy it did work and I captured a lot of footage, which turned out really well and very clear!  Mind you my filming skill leave a lot to be desired ( I moved too fast at times, it was the first time I had used it , should have practiced hey!) but the most crucial moments , the dawn service , presentation night etc  turned out lovely.  It was wonderful to watch and I got homesick for PNG and of course the choko vines ( they were so yum, the simple things in life are definitely the best!).

I will endeavour to get them copied to disk and have a copy sent to you all in the New Year.

Can you please email me your postal addresses and your surnames too.  Regina I have all your photo to send to you too ;-0)

I really look forward to hearing from you all ;-0)

Kind Regards,

Marg
