Hi there, check out my thread in arrivals gate section for loads of advice on this trip and Peru in general. Two items I'd especially recommend would be a down jacket or vest and a a poncho. It is absolutely freezing at night in the mountains and when it rains in the jungle it belts it down.
Thanks Jon. I'll have a look at that link. cheers
Hi Jacqueline, i went with Exodus last year to Egypt, did Cairo, Aswan, Luxhor & the red sea, it was a really good holiday. You will be fine with the flight, nothing to it. At least the extra day will give you time to check out the Salsa bars, you can be our tour guide on the first night!
Here is my list, can you think of anything iI have missed?
Sleeping Bag, Rucksack, Day Pack, head torch, extra batteries, camera, bin liner, plastic sealable bags, body cloth, small towel, sun glasses, walking socks, gloves, hat, rain jacket & trousers, fleece,walking boots, shorts, t.shirts, long sleeved tops, jersey, trainers, bum bag, insect spray (DEET), Re-hydration salts, hand sanitiser, sun cream, plasters, tissues, anti-biotic cream, anti-malaria tablets, multi grain snacks, mini mars bars, boiled sweets, passport, tickets.
Oh and don't forget to pack your dancing shoes!! Cheers Lwrence
And now it's less than 2 weeks! Can't believe it's come around so fast!
I've been sorting out all my stuff at last. I woke up last weekend realising "I've not done anything at all yet" but nearly everything is done now. I've even checked out my rain gear so hopefully I'll not get soaked! The lists above from others who've been on the trip were fantastically helpful and I think Exodus should look at those for the tripnotes.
I asked Exodus to send a mail round on my behalf to see if anyone wanted to get in touch before we go. Would be nice to chat to someone at the airport, and half way across. Feel free to reply to my mail if you want to. If not, see you all over there!
I was hoping to meet up at the airport too. I fly from Birmingham though, but I think we all (or at least some of us?) get the same 10am KLM flight from Amsterdam. I've never been to Amsterdam airport but there's got to be somewhere obvious we could meet. Not sure yet if we're going to have to collect our luggage off the first flight and check it in again (?).
I will take the 8.30 Continental Airlines flight from Heathrow Terminal 4 via Houston.
I'm not sure yet how I will go to Heathrow, but I will probably take a cab. Another option for me would be to take a train to Heathrow the day before and stay at a nearby hotel for the night.
Hi Marc. I'm going that way too. Staying the night before in a hotel. If you got a mail from me, feel free to get in touch if you want and we can meet up at the airport. Would be nice to have someone to natter with during the trip over :)
I'm sure you probably all know this, but for those who travel via the US, it is probably a good time to apply for an ESTA (Electronic System for Travel Authorisation): https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/
Well I think I've bought everything, thought of everything* and am ready to pack and leave tomorrow. Today is my last day at work for nearly 3 weeks - nice!
Exodus kitbags are a bit of a problem for some of us by the way, but I spoke to Exodus and they said they're not vital - there will be kitbags available in Peru if needed, but they're not quite the same quality.
See you all on the other side!
