Hi Tham,

Rob mentioned you were after some comments about the trip. Before I get to them, I thought I’d let you know that I saw you on TV here in Australia on the weekend. There was a show on various adventure activities Australians are doing in South East Asia and the Pacific. It featured things like cave exploration, kayaking, the Kokoda Trail, the Sandakan Death March and a number of other places/activities. Each place only featured for a couple of minutes and it looked like old footage, but you were in it.

As for our trip:
“We loved the challenge and loved learning about an important piece of Australia war history by being there and walking it, despite the suffering and tragedy associated with that history. Our guides were fantastic, as was their knowledge of local plants and animals, and willingness to find edible jungle food for us to try. This is also a great option for people who want to experience a walk through villages and jungles without camping each night – there’s a hot shower at the end of each day’s walking.
