Just wanted to say hello and make contact with others who are doing this trip. Not too long to wait now!
I'm doing this trip. Nice to mee you Sue:)
Hi Galina and Helen - glad you have made contact. For me the holiday cannot arrive quick enough, I feel in need of a break!
Where are you both travelling from? I am in Norwich.
Hi Helen - yes I have done quite a few trips with Exodus and not been disappointed yet.
I'm Jemma and am also going on this trip. I am so excited! Haven't been away for a couple of years (due to post grad exams - last one in 3 weeks). This is my first trip with Exodus (first of many I hope) and I look forward to meeting you all!! :)
Hi everyone - good that everyone is getting in touch - not sure how many have booked for holiday but now know there are at least 5 of us :-)
Perhaps nearer the time we will need to arrange to meet up at Heathrow before the flight.
Look forward to meeting you all - and good luck with your final exam Jemma.
Have just booked onto this ^_^, I'm also based in Manchester but will be popping over from our Doha offices to join you all.
Hi Paul - I decided not to do the extension to Maldives as was not sure if I fancied it, so will be heading back to England at the end of the trip, hoping it won't be too cold ;-) Sue
Nice to see everyone posting. I think the trip is full as when I booked there were 2 places left then the trip disappeared! I've done several trips with Exodus but never a solo one. I'm coming from Winchester so it would be good to meet people at Heathrow. Looking forward to it. Esther
Hope those of you travelling from Heathrow are up to meeting prior to the flight. I have looked at the Terminal 4 map of the departure lounge and there appears to be a Costa café which may be a good place to meet. My bus gets into the Heathrow just after 6pm so will aim to get to there about 7.00/7.30 so perhaps a coffee before the plane leaves? Sue
Hi Esther, I haven't thought that far ahead - let's see if anyone else is up for meeting and I will come up with a plan before the day. Sue
I usually take some form of squishy bag rather than a suitcase. Usually carry a day sack and leave main luggage in hotels or on bus in my experience. The trouble with rucksacks is if you need something at the bottom you have to keep unpacking and repacking! - hope that helps.
Thanks for your advice - that's what I was thinking. I look forward to meeting you in a few weeks time (can't believe it's just round the corner).
Jemma - congratulations on passing your exam! Re your query re baggage, I agree with Esther. I generally take a soft bag with wheels and a small rack sack that I can use during the day. Exodus are very good at transferring luggage which usually sits on the bus whilst travelling around.
Paul - I will contact you by e-mail nearer the time - I think wearing carnations is now a bit dated ;-). We will sort something out even if it is a stick on label on day rack sack with Exodus Sri Lanka on it!!
See you all soon.
I'm Katie and I can't wait for this holiday. I live near Huddersfield so will be flying out from Manchester and will hopefully be chilling on the beach at the hotel with a drink by the time you all arrive on the London flight. I get into Colombo at 830am!!
Luck forward to meeting you all and having a great holiday.
I will put a sticky label on my rack sack next Saturday and head for the Costa café when I clear passport, etc. Hopefully we will be able to spot each other if others also do a similar thing.
Hi Katie - look forward to meeting you in Colombo.
I am just wandering how much walking there is as I have had hip surgery and fully intend to do everything but want to know if you think it's worth me taking walking poles or if it's fairly easy?
15-20 if only it was that warm here!
Are good trainers ok for the walking or are boots necessary?
It's great 2 have some inside info!! Thank u
