So now I have first hand experience about the situation over there and about travelling over there. Which I will give up to date information on in regards to vaccinations and immunisation and how they do things in PNG in regards to these. I prefer to experience things myself because I am over people carrying on about danger and so forth in PNG, when there are other countries in the world that are more dangerous than PNG. For example if you read your Travel Insurance properly you will see that most will say they will not cover you if you travel to Afghanistan and such places. I have inserted a couple of Travel insurance web link just to give you an idea of what I am talking about. At the end of the day it is peoples choice where they want to travel to in the world, but it pays to do your homework first and not be too ignorant. 9/11 changed the world that we once knew forever in regards to safe travel. I was actually serving as a full time Army service personnel in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, when 9/11 happened.
