    Message received from Gabriel.

    Hi Nathan, just emailing to provide some feedback from my trip and experience on last week’s fast trek.

    Firstly, I would like to say that if there were more Tony’s and Eddie’s in the world, it would be a better, more peaceful place. As I was the only trekker on he walk, I was able to get to know them and we got on really well. They were very friendly, easy to talk to and they took great care of me during the whole expedition, providing boiling water and meals for the day. The knowledge they had about the war throughout the trail was also brilliant, adding to the significance of being there and walking on the trail. They were both really good men, and I wish them infinite happiness. If this could be passed onto them that would be much appreciated.
    In addition to Tony and Eddie, I also found all other staff of Kokoda Trekking to be really friendly and helpful. I was picked up from the airport, and transported to the airport and the beginning of the trail, and I just enjoyed being around and talking to all the members. This relationship between Kokoda Trekking and their trekkers especially stood out to me, when walking past other companies on the trail, whose porters did not seem to have as much of a connection to the people taking part on the trail.
    To conclude on the staff, they showed great pride in their work and in the care of the trekkers, as well as also showing respect for the trail and its history.

    The trail itself was incredible and the villages in which we passed and stayed at were nice and well maintained. There was excellent views and it was a challenge that I really enjoyed and won’t forget. I wouldn’t have changed a thing about my experience on the trail, and you should be proud of the staff in which you have employed to guide visitors along the trail, including both Pat and the local PNG workers.
    Kokoda Trekking is a great company for those looking on challenging themselves and meeting the Papa New Guinean people.
    Thank you for the experience.
