Craig's Story

Well at least the initial support, logistics and answering of all my stupid questions was handled extremely well by Belinda (Owner/Operator and admin. guru for Adventure Bound Tours). We stayed in and staged out of Cairns, which was a blessing after seeing Moresby, and were trekking on the first day on arriving in PNG. It was a short “cultural and physical intro” day. Am I ready for this? Can I handle 9 more day of this? Well the truth is without the calm, professional encouragement and obvious experience of Olly (Owner/Operator and Head Guide for Adventure Bound Tours), it would have been a struggle for all of us. The blisters, stiff joints and tried muscles soon faded to insignificants with Olly’s passionate stories and intimate military knowledge of the Diggers that came before us. What an honour to walk in their footsteps. A trip of blood, sweat and tears (well mainly sweat) testing and fulfilling.
My Tips:
Porter? 100% yes!
Tested hiking shoes? A must!
3B cream and spare knee brace? Well worth the 100g.
Adventure Bound Tours? Without a doubt!!
Thank you Olly and Billy for the Awesome experience, I’ll be back in 10yrs with my 2 boys.
Craig 46.
