Trek 1065 - Trek Completed

21 May 2017 - 09:54 PM

This group of trekkers flew into Port Moresby on the 19th May where they were met by our staff and later taken down to the Royal Papua Yacht Club.  Later they returned to their accommodation and hit the sack as they knew they had an early start the next day for their flight to Popondetta.

The following day they booked in for their flight and a short time later found themselves in the Oro Province, the capital being Popondetta.  They were then driven into the town and shown the War Memorial area and later were driven up to Orohaven Pija Retreat where they had a relaxing afternoon swimming in the creek and resting before tucking into some pizza for their evening meal.

Apparently they were pleasantly surprised to learn the ingredients flew with them that morning so they could enjoy for their dinner.  With a couple of Italian's in this group, am assuming it was a nice surprise.  Trekkers include:
  • Todd DellaTorre
  • Vic DellaTorre
  • Wade DellaTorre
  • Chris Mumme
  • Carole Wright
Carole arrived in town not knowing any of the others but am sure she has fitted right into this family group of trekkers and will get along just fine with them for company as they make their way along the track.
