Snow! It's been lovely sunshine here in East Anglia. I think it can get quite cool in the Sahara at night so must dig out my sleeping bag too. What are you doing about cash? Taking Euros or US dollars?
There is only one Harrods and it's after security control. We could meet there around 4pm? Anyone else want to join us?
4pm Harrods it is then. Anyone else joining us?
Hi, not unless they see this thread! Anyone out there? Hellloooooooo!!
Think I have most bits now, got water purification drops (a right palava!).
The trip is fully booked so there should be 14 more people out there somewhere! See you all soon. Katie
PS The last time I had to buy water purification stuff it was also difficult. Apparently it has other uses.
Getting v excited indeed!
This is my 1st trip with Exodus, although I have been with other operators for walking and skiing holidays.
Think I'm the 15th person....there was 1 place left after I joined on Monday, so someone else must have joined since then if the trip is now full.
Yes I would like to meet at Heathrow please. Shall look out for you around 4 around Harrods, or failing that at the gate. What do you look like? I'm Chinese, female, shoulder length hair, 5'6".
I will hang around outside Harrods at 4pm. I am 5'5'' (and a half), brown hair (likely tied back in very small ponytail as just had huge amount cut off it yesterday), 33yrs but look a lot younger, and will have a blue rucksack.
See you soon
I am 5.3, dark blonde hair, likely to have a red and grey day sack with me. See you then. Sarah
Just wanted to mention that I checked with Exodus re.. what's needed for night in dessert.. last year the trip notes people would need rucksack/daysac which could double as a bag to carry overnight stuff..e.g. sleeping bag. I couldn't find this in the trip notes for this year..
have just bought another rucksack..
See you all on Sunday! Liz
Hello! Getting close to leaving date now - most excited. I may also meet with you at Heathrow depending on what time I make it there! See you all soon
Will have to start thinking about packing soon.
See you soon.
Sorry didn't describe what I looked like in my last post - asian, female with longish hair. Probably with black backpack. See you hopefully at the airport on Sunday.
Getting closer. Only 2 sleeps to go! See everyone soon. Katie
I can't believe it's over!! I had a brilliant time and it was great meeting you all. Being back at work is the best motivator to look for my next trip! For the London bods, see you next week!
Not having heard from Chris I guess meanwhile this is the best place to express how wonderful I feel to have done this trip and have met such a marvellous bunch of fellow travellers.
Katie glad to hear you made it home last night and sounds like it was a smooth journey.
Look forward to meet up in London, and hope to cross paths with those who live further afield. Anyway keep in touch.
Katie, did you get your luggage okay? We saw it on the carousel at Heathrow and Jo took it on to see if she could get it on the same flight as you! Having your name on your bag works!!!
Yes I got my luggage! Thanks very much for getting it on my flight. It came off first in Aberdeen. Didn't have much faith in the lady in Marrakesch since she kept asking what country I was going to when she was checking through my bag. This time last week we had just finished the camel trek and were on our second walk of the day in the sand dunes. Just been past the sand dunes here - not quite the same! Katie
Good to hear you all got back safely.. my flight landed 40 mins early.. unheard of.. all that volcanic stuff shut down a lot of the French airports so we just flew straight thru!
What a trip.. it was fabulous.. the group was excellent.. I have photos of most people to share.. and maybe Bob and Chris do too.. much better ones. I suspect that Chris and Karen are still chilling at the riad in Marrakech.
Hope that all of you will keep up with the "small walks".. maybe we could plan one of these in London followed by tagine (well maybe not tagine).
So good to meet you; we had a good group didn't we?! A really good mix of people. My trip up the M40 was fine and I found the hotel ok in the end. Got home Monday night and Eva was sooooooooo excited to see me. Looking forward to seeing Chris's photos. We really ought to be in the "arrivals lounge" not the "departures lounge" on Compass cafe but who cares. About to look up Across the Divide! Sarah
I think meeting up for "small" walks is a brilliant idea!
I'm game for 'small walks' too.
Hi all, home at last with some time to catch up and do some washing!!!
Great trip, I have raved about it to everyone this week. Glad you got your luggage Katie - I have a number of pictures of people on camels so if you want to email me at email@example.com I can email you back with appropriate pics.
Will be in London just Mon to Weds this week and already going out Tues night so if anyone wants to meet up on Monday evening 17th May I shall be in Henry's Bar Covent Garden (because I know where it is! - you can Google it if you don't know where it is) from 6-7pm if you want to come for a drink and maybe we can go for something to eat as well.....email me if you will be coming and I will let you have my mobile no (don't want to put it on here for all to see!) and if you have the mobile no of anyone else from the group in London who isn't on here then do let them know.....see you soon. Jo
Hi everybody ! It's so great having news from you ! I think I've made everybody crazy here talking about how great the trip was and what awesome people I've met there :) Of course, there were some jokes here about how sunburnt I was but this is part of life ;)
As you know, I left Marrakech for Madrid where I arrived without problems. There I had some problems with a stupid taxi driver who asked 15 Euros for a 3 minutes drive and with the people that didn't understand English. Finally, with a mix of Italian and some Spanish words I knew, I've managed to make myself understood and I enjoyed three hours in the center of Madrid. I'm looking forward for Chris to send the photos (I think they are way better than mine) and the email addresses.
It's great that you'll meet in London, I'd wish to be there as well :(. It's not impossible to come there the next weekend, on 24th of May we'll have a free day because of the Whitsuntide (I hope it's correct, I had to look in a dictionary after the translation), if not, I think I'll be in the UK in august for 4-5 days. See you soon ! Cosmin
