Hi - I'm Geri (short for Geraldine) and have just booked onto the 17 March trip and can't see that anyone has posted anything yet?
Look forward to hearing from somebody :-)
Hi Geri and Andrea,
I'll be joiing you and looking forward to it. Either of you been walking with Exodus before?
Hi Andrea and Catherine - nice to meet you both online :-)
Yes; last April I did the Tuscany walk with Exodus and enjoyed it very much. It was 'moderate' graded but pretty challenging walking on some occasions! I wasn't sure whether to do the Andalucia walk this time around but decided to go for the Amalfi one!
Am really looking forward to it now and glad to make some pre-contact as it helps when we all meet up.
Andrea - are you UK based or are you coming in from the U.S.?
I plan on staying at Gatwick the night prior to departure though haven't booked my hotel yet - think it will be the Hilton...
Hi Geri and Catherine,
This is my first trip with Exodus and my first trip to the Continent. I was in Ireland last fall for my first international trip and loved it, got the travel bug and decided to take the leap.
Geri, I live in South Florida and will be taking an overnight trip to meet everyone on the morning of the 17th. I think my internal clock will be a little messed up for the first couple of days!
Have either of you done a solo travel before? Catherine, are you UK based?
Hi Andrea (and Catherine) - you have an interesting journey from Florida and then onwards to Naples but it will be worth it and I'm sure we'll all have a great time. I was actually born in Ireland but lived in England from the age of two weeks as my father was in the RAF and mum brought me back home to London from Ireland! Mind you; that was a long long time ago!
My Tuscany trip with Exodus last year was also a solo one and it was great - a really nice bunch of people - and we all got on very well together.
I live in a village in Wiltshire in the South West of England and I'm about a couple of hours drive from Gatwick Airport from here, hence me staying overnight rather than getting up for the early drive!
Ireland was beautiful and magical. Made me want to see more of the world, my kids can take care of themselves now so it's time for an adventure.
I actually meet you all in Naples on the 17th, I don't go through England. My flights couldn't match up with the Exodus flights so I stay Friday night in Naples alone and then go back to the airport in the morning to meet all of you. I'm a little nervous about the cabs but will forge ahead! :-)
Looking forward to a spectacular week.
Hi Andrea and Catherine - well it's very quiet in our departure lounge - not sure how many of us there will be on the trip but I'm looking forward to it and need a break from work!
See you soon!
Hello everyone. I am Jill and I will be driving down from Leeds and staying overnight at Gatwick before joining you all at the airport VERY early on Saturday morning. This will be my first EXODUS trip and am looking forward to a fun week.
See you next week....
Hi Jill - good to meet you! I too will be staying at Gatwick Airport (Hilton) the night before. Look forward to seeing you all at the airport (or earlier if it works out and any of us staying at the same hotel).
Hi Geri, Andrea, Catherine and Jill,
I'm really looking forward to meeting you all on what should be a great trip. Apart from the scenery, Pompeii and Herculaneum should be well worth seeing. It will also be exciting to go up Vesuvius - although any tremors and I'll be back down like a shot! I am flying over from Guernsey the night before, so will also be staying at Gatwick...
See you all soon...
Oh My Goodness! This time next week we will have done our first day walking. I am not sure where the weeks have gone since my first post......think I might need this break from work too.
I am UK based, sleepy Shropshire. I too am originally from Ireland, and still have the accent to go with it. This is my first Exodus trip. I did my first solo walking holiday over the New Year and signed up for this soon after.
I'll be in Gatwick the night before too, but will arrive too late for anything but sleep. Is anyone else flying on the BA flight?
See you all soon
Hi all (it's easier than now adding individual names:-)
Am looking forward to meeting up - hopefully pre flight if anyone is going with Easy Jet??? Am staying Hilton Gatwick night before if anyone else it too?
Hi Geri - I'm on Easy Jet, and very happy to meet up beforehand. But not staying at Gatwick Hilton - I'm at the Best Western (5 mins out, or so they say...). Check-in is 2 hours to be safe... that's 07.55 - 2 = brrrr... 05.55. I think a fine plan might be to get through check-in and then find breakfast on the other side of security! Perhaps we can see how many we can gather for breakfast...
Hi Quintin and the girls! I am a bit gutted to have to tell you all that I am now not able to make the trip, having been told by my doctor today that I cannot travel and need some urgent (but minor in the scheme of things) surgery! It was a bit of a blow to be honest - was not expecting that outcome; so my trip is postponed and I'm hoping to do one of the June dates to the same destination.
I am so sorry I am not going to meet you all but I wish you all the very very best - have a wonderful trip and I'll be thinking of what I'm missing this weekend!
So sorry to hear the bad news. Get well soon!
Hi Geri - what a shame for you - I hope you are better soon. I think your plan to do one of the June dates is an excellent idea - and the weather should be wonderful at that time of year.
I am on the BA flight too, so hopefully we may find each other at check-in with our Exodus luggage labels!!
If not, see you in Naples.
