It would be good to say hi to the August 30th to 15th September 2013 group.
I am Annie from London, now counting down the weeks before the adventure starts.
It’s looking like a full truck load of us, give or take a couple. No spare lockers then!
I guess it helps, just being in a group of eleven but how did the battery charging work out on your trip. Any tips to make this easier.
Your holiday now feeling a thin of the past?
From all the notes I have read I don’t think charging will be too much of a problem. Maybe Anneinspace (end of July trip) will let us know. I have read that we need a two pin plug in Rwanda so I am taking one, just in case, as we are there for about three days. My hand luggage will be just my cameras and chargers etc so have gone large with the hold bag (large and light!!! (but that has yet to be tested)
Ipad sounds so much better than pen and paper
Please to hear you intend to take a ‘few’ photos and would to read your journal on our return.
Hi Coby, Annie,
Charging batteries wasn't too much of a problem. First of all in Rwanda as long as you have a European two pin adaptor you can charge in your rooms at the hotel. Once on the road, you can charge on the truck as long as the engine is running (UK three pin plugs). This wasn't 100% reliable though as most of the time it charged our batteries with no problems at all but from time to time it seemed to lose connection and hours later your battery still wasn't charged. At most campsites they would let you charge at reception or at a designated charging post. Overall though, as long as you have at least one spare battery, you should be ok.
Thank you again Anne. Have a good weekend.
I tried booking in on line for the flight from Heathrow but couldn't get any further than the next day, will give it a try again tomorrow to see if I can get to the 30th if so will book straight away the KQ448 flight too. I still have had no info from Exodus re:- the time change.
Looks like a very good mix of people, look forward to meeting you all.
My notes say we have to wait until 30 hours before our flight to check in online. I think Exodus will do it for us now, if requested.
Almost ready to pack, just a few things still to buy.
Off to Notting Hill Carnival today. I hope to get some good photos.
Wow just five sleeps left.
Had a good day at carnival yesterday, nice weather and big crowds.
I don't intend to take a mosquito net, I have read, these are provided or part of the tent. Maybe worth checking with Exodus to confirm.
Four sleeps left.
I'm taking a head net, as once inside a sleeping bag that's the only bit of you left exposed. Nothing worse than a mozzie buzzing round your head to stop you sleeping - it's not the noise, it's the paranoia about getting bitten. Managed to put my walking boots on for the first time today, so fingers crossed - rather than toes, obviously... See you all very very soon, Liz
I have spoken to Exodus and have been told we do not need to bring mosquito net.
Two more nights and we all will be on our way for our exciting journey. Have a nice trip getting to Nairobi. I look forward to meeting up with whoever is travelling from Heathrow.
I am now packed and ready to leave in the morning, hopefully have everything! See you all tommorow,
If we miss you at the baggage drop we will be in Pret A manger Airside
Near The falcon Gold Gulf Air Lounge and Hugo Boss
around 6 pm
Thanks for coming back. Reading your comments puts my mind completely at rest. Can't wait until 6th only 5 more sleeps. Wow
