Beautiful East New Britain

A plume of smoke rises from Tavurvur, coconut plantations line the coast line below as Air Niugini flight PX 272 cruises over the blue sea as it comes into land at Tokua International Airport. East New Britain, Rabaul and kokopo to be exact described in one word, ‘Fascinating’ I would I say. The hospitality and the friendliness of the people was overwhelming. I didn’t know I was such a big celebrity outside of Port Moresby, but news was out that the Pacific Games Kokomo was in town.

Choosing East New Britain as the first province to visit in Papua New Guinea was no mistake. The overwhelming reception waiting for me at every school I visited was unforgettable. I had the privilege of visiting the hot springs, the famous volcanoes and the WWII sites in Rabaul. ENB is a place full of history and breath taking beauty. The purpose of the visit was to let the people of ENB know all about the 2015 Pacific Games and share the experience with them even if the games are to be held in Port Moresby. It was an awesome experience and if it is any indication of what’s in store for me when I visit the other 20 or so provinces then, this is AMAZING! Thank You ENB for an AMZING EXPERIENCE. Here are pictures from my trip I’d like to share with you all.

Till next time…take care!
