Hello - I'm booked on this trip and would love to hear from anyone else who is going.
I'm booked on this trip as well and I'm really looking forward to it. It will be my first trip with Exodus, as well as my first ever visit to Asia.
I had my first vaccination shot yesterday and will be back for the next one in a months time. Do you know if we should bring any mosquito bed-nets (or whatever they're called in English)?
I'm also booked on this holiday. This is my first trip as a solo traveller, so excited and nervous.
I think the hol is fully booked so looking forward to meeting everyone and having a fantastic time.
Great to hear from you. This is also my first solo trip and first trip with Exodus so I'm a bit nervous too but also very excited. Beginning to think about innoculations and visa now!
Hi I am like most of you this will be my first trip with exodous and done nothing like it before. I an nervous but looking forward to it. I am also thinking about the visa but not sure when the best time to get it is and then there is a visit to the practice nurse to check re vaccinations, antimalarials etc. I am staying at a travelodge near the airport the night before we fly out so if anyone is going to be in the area please say Hello.
Ok I have just paid. I only booked 3 weeks ago I think somebody dropped out. Don't be nervous, just think of it as going away with 15 other people who’s friends think they are too annoying to go away with! Not sure about the mosquito nets question (I was going to ask if the hotels would have hair dryers, I feel like a bit of a girl now), the ‘what to bring’ doesn’t mention mosquito nets and they seem to cover everything. I have never been on a trip on my own before or to India, I think it will be great.
So it looks like there will be two Jenni's on this trip - that could get confusing! I'm not sure about mosquito nets either but am guessing they aren't needed as we're in ok-ish hotels for most of the time. I'm definitly taking a hairdryer though! Who's on the group flight leaving on the Thursday?
Hi iam on the Thursday Flight, any-one else?
I am on the group flight from Heathrow too but am travelling down to Heathrow the day before. I thought travelling down from the north of England then a nine hour flight and then a 5 hour journey when we get there may be a bit tiring in one go. So I gave myself the luxury of an extra day.
Hey all, I thought the visa application process looked daunting however it really is simple. I had an added complication because of my occupation.
I have been on holiday with Exodus before (Egypt Nile Cruise), a few years ago now, it was a well organised trip, accomodation was of a good standard and the guide was excellent.
I'm travelling down from Edin on the Thurs and will be at Heathrow from 1500 hrs ish so if anyone else is arriving early doors we could perhaps arrange to meet up?
Hi would love to meet up early as I will have loads of time to kill. I am going to try and keep my travelodge room till 2 and then hop up to the airport on the Hoppa Bus. I can also catch up with my old stomping ground news, Edinburgh as I notice you are coming down from Edinburgh.
Hi Julie and Sarah. I won't be at Heathrow early as I live fairly locally but would still love to come and find you before our flight. We'll have to organise something nearer the time. This weekend is the big visa sorting weekend for me!
Hi re the pre flight meet as discussed above. If anyone is on Facebook you can get my mobile number by sending a friends request. I am the only Anne Julie Smith on there that I know of. I have put the most distinctive profile pic on there to make sure. I am the weird looking woman in glasses with a white paper rose stuck in my mouth.
Honest folks I am sane and boring!!!
This is my first trip with Exodus and to India, but always up for an adventure! Getting nervous and excited about meeting everyone :-) :-) :-) Would love to meet up before the flight on Thursday, I will be arriving from the Midlands at about 4.30pm.
Julie - Look out for my friend request on facebook. Think I'm the only Louise Kovarovic out there, but easy to recognise in my flapper dress!!
At least you look classy in your pic!! looking forward to meeting and exploring with you.
Have sent friend requests to those of you who have offered it up on Facebook. If anyone wants to check me out I'm simply Di Hollander. Sent me an invite! Sent off my Visa App today, let's hope I get it back in time. They're gonna be busy with the commonwealth games 'n all but let's hope they're on the ball. Just hope I sent it to the right app centre as Isle 'o wight's not listed!! Aaargh. Looking forward to meeting you all, but most of all, a. need a holiday... and b need some sun!!!
Ok, can we now play guess Sarah’s occupation that might prevent her from getting a visa, I’m thinking you would not put down Drug Runner, so maybe Burglar OR People Trafficker, mmm Taxidermist? Fire Starter? I’m just getting carried away now.
I have not even started my visa, I am going to Taiwan for work next week and need a China visa for a shopping trip on the way back, so I am off the Chinese embassy tomorrow. I will deal with the India stuff when I get back,
Now, as much as I am looking forward to meeting everyone, it’s Heathrow and there are good shops and I will be spending the next 9 days with everyone. I am coming straight from work in London so am bound to late, I will be the one who turns up 20 mins before the flight look flushed.
Jennifer Hornby on Facebook, not sure how many there are of me but I think I’m the best one, honest.
I have sent friend requests to those of you that i can find, looking forward to a nosy :)
HELP!!! This was the weekend I was supposed to get the visa application sorted on the info sheet it gives us a Mohan Tickoo to put as a referee and then for hotel details we supposedly need to put in says see "trip notes". Cannot see any hotel names there. Anyone who has done the application already I would appreciate knowing what you did with that section as I would like to get it all sorted this weekend and not delay it any longer.
Thanks hope you can help.
I have yet to book my flight to Heathrow (or Gatwick) from Reykjavik. I haven't decided if I'm flying in the same day or the day before. I probably won't spend much time shopping in Heathrow, except for some books for the flight. Will try to look you up on Facebook, but you can also add me, I think I'm the only Benedikt G. Waage there.
