This week we got an email from patients Peter and Damian who are off on a father/son trip to PNG. Peter told me before he left that he would only be able to send an email at the start of the trek because there’s no power or internet after that for around 9 days.
Hi Travel Health Plus Team – Waiting to board a flight to Popondetta to start our adventure, then its a 5 hour truck ride to Kokoda – at which point we have to walk. We are a small team of 8 so should be a tight crew. No mosquitos last night but malaria is definitely a concern so glad I have my tablets. Port Moresby isn’t safe but there aren’t any tablets you can take to protect against that. A couple went to the local supermarket and ended up running there and taxiing back. Let the adventure begin….. Peter & Damian.
For those who plan to visit PNG for any reason, a trip for travel health advice is a must!
