Just wondering if anyone else has booked onto this trip? I am very excited about seeing Vietnam and am on countdown already even though it is 2 months away :-)
Good to hear from a fellow traveller! I can't believe that it is next week I can't wait! We have a big group so I am sure there will be plenty of encouragement to get us all up the hills :-)
See you next week! Natalie
Hi Natalie, if you look at the messages of the group that has just left, never tobe seen again, you might pick up some helpful tips. My son is keeping me company, well he is my domestique, as they are called in the Tour de France always fetching you food and drinks, mending your punctures.
This trip is going to be great fun ,all the way, haven't you started packing yet ? roger
Hi. Natalie, if you look at the previous party that left last week, never to be seen again, you might pick up somehelpful tips. My son is accompanying me, he's to be my domestique, as they are refered to in the Tour de France, always running around fetching you food and water, mending your punctures.
This trip is going to be great fun , that is if you like fish and rice, only joking. Haven't you started packing yet? not sure what to pack, do you think the dinner suit will be necessary? roger
I'm all booked up for cycling Vietnam as well, can't wait, not long now. I'm currently debating what to bring I know i'll bring too much (as always)! At least I dont have to bring my own bike.
Shame to hear the previous trip had some rough weather, fingers crossed for us eh? I've been out on the bike today as well, wouldn't exactly call it training though, you're right strong winds and cold weather. Perfect for riding round the streets of London, now if only I could have some rain!! Katie.
Good to hear from another fellow traveller! Are you taking the group flight from London.
Roger, i have no idea what I am going to pack.. I always leave these things to the last minute! Checked the weather earlier and it seems to be picking up towards the end of the week so hopefully we will have more luck than the other group :-)
I'm also joining the Vietnam trip - my second with Exodus (did the Tanzania cycle safari in Feb) - and read the above reports of poor weather with foreboding having packed my sunglasses and sunscreen (little else as still trying to decide what to pack - no wonder the Edwardians travelled with large steamer trunks).
Anyway having looked at the forecast for this week - wet & stormy but with temperatures in the 80s/30s (sorry, I still use old money for temperatures) - it should be wet and warm which tends to be what you would expect in this part of the world.
Am travelling with the group flight so may meet people in the departure lounge for real (although based on my one trip to date none of us actually bumped into each other until arriving at Kilimanjaro airport, having all spent the flight trying to guess which of our fellow passengers were joining the group - don't think I got one right).
Look forward to meeting some of you on Saturday/Sunday - now where did I put those wellies...?
Hi Natalie and James,
I am on the group flight out of Heathrow, Exodus have kindly sent me some of those luggage tags for life which I will be using so hopefully you might be able to spot me.
Now I best be off to buy some more wet weather gear.....
Hi James, you know how to dampen our spirits, hope their forecasts are as unreliable as those for UK.
Look guys, in Spain, we don't do riding in the rain, cold or windy conditions ,it's a good habit, so don't be surprised if you see me sitting next to the driver.
Well I'm nearly on my way, travelling from Spain on Wednesday, so this morning the iron has been out ,and dashed out for some more wet gear, better bring the wet suit.
Yes we're out on the Heathrow Flight, we'll wear a lei if it helps, but they'll be time enough to get to know each other. That's always a great part of the holiday.
Hear that it's chilly over there, we're still in shorts and supping cold beer, Hot and wet some scenario, bring it on.
Hope you have a good trip, did the Thailand to Vietnam trip with Exodus and Tom a couple of years ago and was great fun. The backup is always excellent and will make you life a lot easier so you can just enjoy being there. If you get a chance, get Tom on the karaoke :)
Tom leave those poor cycle taxis in Saigon alone this time ;)
