Beautiful Highlands

Papua New Guinea, Village, Highlands

The Highlands in Papua New Guinea are so beautiful. Since moving up here in November we have discovered that more and more as we have ventured to different towns. On one particular trip to Goroka, a town about 2 hours away that we have driven to several times now, I knew that I HAD to take my camera. Every time we past this beautiful little village I knew that It was the perfect picture, but I had never brought my camera because of the safety risks. So a couple weeks ago Evan went with another guy from the Auto Shop to pick up some car parts (a business trip) and I got to tag along. The Highlands of Papua New Guinea are so beautiful, and I knew I had to share it with you!

Gardening is a way of life in Papua New Guinea. Many times you will see people’s gardens on the side of mountains. They say this is the easiest place to put them because then you don’t have to bend down to garden, you can stand straight up and not hurt your back!

I love this picture of the rolling hills and someone burning ground for a garden on top of the mountain!

Colorado & Seattle {Part 1}

June was such a whirlwind for us. We spent the month traveling and raising the rest of our money that I haven’t had a chance to post much on here! I wanted to share some pictures from our travels, and in 1 months time expect more! Pray for us as we close in on this time of packing and saying our goodbyes.
