Hi all! Am considering booking onto this trip to Morocco as a solo traveller! Have never been to Morocco before and would love this experience! Anyone else booked on or considering doing so?
Hi i prefer city culture so this trip should be ideal for me! Have booked it today. Are you a frequent solo traveller or is this your first time?
I'm ok for my vaccinations I think, have had them all.
I hope it's ok for when we go, I've heard there's been a little bit of trouble in Marrakech.
I'm coming from Reading
Hi Janet, Kate and jhall5!
It's Gala from Barcelona and I'm coming to Morocco imperial cities too! It's my first trip with exodus, I joined it because a friend of mine did it last year and she recommended it to me.
I was in Morocco for one day, in Tanger, a long time ago, the summer of 2005 or so... And I'm really interested in visiting all of the cities the trip includes. I love travelling and I specially adore learning about different cultures and ways of living.
Will you all three finally come?
Keep in touch,
P.S. None of my friends or relatives has ever got vaccinated for Morocco... Which vaccinations have u been told are necessary?
Dear Kate, JHall5 and Gala,
I too watch the news with dread that the unrest will spread to Morcco - the countries seem to be taking it in turn for an uprising but from what I undertand with my very limited knowledge of these things, Morocco is one of the least likely to have such unrest as to not allow tourism so we shall see. Vaccinations - Recommended vaccinations for this trip are: Polio, Tetanus, Typhoid,
Hepatitis A says the trip notes. I don't think we need anything is exciting as yellow fever as we are staying around cities.
Travelling - I am coming from Cheltenham so M4 car journey for me. JHall5 I am technically passing you if you need a lift?
Not too long now (I am so impatient). Janet
I'm not an expert too, and as Janet said, it seems that Morocco os one of the least likely to have such unrest as to not allow tourism. I'm happy for those countries, everybody should be free, but let's hope they wait until Eastern finishes....Let's cross fingers :-)
So at the moment we're four young women:
- Kate Hamilton -Kate_1986- (Liverpool) 24
- Janet Roberts -JMR1- (Cheltenham) 27
- Jenny Hall -jhall5- (Reading)
- Gala Escrig -Gala- (Barcelona) 34
I'll fly from BCN and I'll join u at (CMN) Mohamed V Airport in Casablanca and I'll fly with you from Casablanca to Fez!!! We'll have some time to chat at CMN airport... which as Janet mentioned doesn't look to be a hub......

well, I'm supposed to be at Casablanca's airport when you arrive.
I'm booked onto this trip as well and travelling on my own. Really looking forward to it
Hi you all, can't wait for holidays to come!!!!!
Hi to Claire and Gala too. The group is building up nicely. I think we're all going to have a great time. I can't wait, am sick of the cold!
Hello, i'm Rich and I've joined this trip too!
This will be my second trip to Morocco (I did the Atlas Panorama in 2004 which was my first exodus trip) and I'm looking forward to revisiting Marrakech again. I believe i'm on the main group flight on sunday evening... and I can confirm that Casablanca airport is not very exciting.
Hi all again! Hows it going? just over a month to go! Cant wait! I assume were all going to be on the same flight from heathrow? Excitment is setting in now! xx
Less than a monto to go! Can't wait! I really need holidays :-)
I am also going on this trip - but I'm less organised than some of you, having only booked it yesterday! I've booked my own flights rather than group flights, as the group flights were too expensive by the time I got around to booking. Means I'll miss out on the fun at Casablanca - but I do have to travel on RyanAir (:
Anyway, thanks for all the useful info - the bit about vaccinatons completely passed me by until I read it here. Probably a bit late to do much now about it now, but I've phoned up the GP surgery for advice. Was relieved to look back at the trip notes and see nothing is complusory...
Anyway, good to know there are some other solo travellers as I thought I might be the only one (even though it's meant to be a solos tour)!
Has anyone else seen the bit in the reviews about food poisioning? I'm hoping it won't be us this time...
John (32, from Kent)
Only two weeks for the trip! As vaccinations are not compulsory I haven't been vaccinated. Let's cross fingers everithing goes well. I still have to ask for some Dirhams, but if I don't have the time, I'll just withdraw some cash at the first ATM I'll find.
How's the weather up there in the UK? Since Thursday tempratures here in BCN are quite warm, spring is all around!
Hello John - worry not, lots of individuals so you won't get isolated by lots of couples. Food poisoning - oh I hope not. Where did you read that? Best take some imodium just in case. For those going on the group flight - What is going on with the flights - they seem to change all the time - I am starting to get confused when we are leaving or going so I hope to find some of you at heathrow and follow! What are the flights we are now getting? See you all very soon.
Hi Janet and everyone else! I'm confused re. flights aswell i'm sure it will all be fine! Shall a few of us try to meet up in Heathrow and all go through together?
Hi Kate, sounds like a good idea to get together before we fly. I'll be aiming to check in about 3:30pm so if you see some guy in the queue with a big blue Exodus bag that'll probably be me.
Hi! OMG I haven't check my flights... I'm pretty busy...
I've just received an email from my flight back to BCN saying it'll be delayed one hour, no prob.
This weekend I'll check the flights from BCN to Morocco.
Blue Exodus bag...? Haven't received it :-( I've only received a... I dunno the owrd in English: this small something u write ur adress in it and attach the item to your bag,so in case it gets lost, someone can contact you.
Tomorrow's Friday and then only one week to go!!!!!!!!!
and my personal email firstname.lastname@example.org
I'll provably bring my blackberry so I'll be able to check my emails.
Don't worry, you're not missing out. I was given the exodus bag a few years ago for a walking trip. Nearly time to start packing it...
See you soon!
I've only got the luggage tag too - so will all just have to be jealous of Rich's smart Exodus bag!
Hope the weather is still great in Barcelona, Gala, it's lovely here in England (at least here in the South East, at any rate)!
Janet - I read about the food poisioning it on the tour reviews here in the Exodus website: http://www.exodus.co.uk/holidays/amf/reviews
... but hopefully we'll all be too smart to eat any dodgy food! :)
Hope the changes to the group flights work themselves out ok - with luck the times might turn out to be better than expected. I've just checked in on good old RyanAir - so it now feels like I'm really setting off soon!
Which of your departure flights has been delayed? The one from London To Casablanca or the one from Casablanca to Fez?
I've chcecked and my flight from Barcelona to Casablanca seems to be delayed. I'm supposed to join you at the second flight.
Morocco doesn't allow dirhams to be brought into or taken out of the country???
I've ordered only 40€ just to not arrive there without a single penny....
Here are the times for the flights for those going as a group (with some major formatting issues!)
Really looking forward to meeting you all - I am sure we will bumb into each other at heathrow as we all seem to have those fetching exodus travel tags :)

Excellent work Janet. Looks like we're now taking the scenic route to Casablanca.
I'm sure the 3 hour wait for the next flight will be fine.
Hope we don't have an early start the next morning though...
I'm glad to see that the rest of you will be around for some of the time I'm hanging round Casablanca airport (again) on the way back. My flight back there is 6am and then I'll be hanging round for the 1340.
Surely they won't make us get up early on the first day...
Out of interest, is anybody else (who might not have posted here yet) taking RyanAir flight 2772 dep Stansted 15:50 arriving Fez 19:10?
Also, I'm assuming the whole group will meet after breakfast on the Monday morning? I'm hoping the hotel will have some idea when breakfast will be for those on tour - hopefully not too early for the sake of those taking the group flights... Though apparently the hotel is on top of a nightclub so maybe none of us will sleep...
It's my first Exodus trip so any advice from old timers on how these things work would be greatly appreciated!
I hope Saturday I'll have time to arrange my flights and pack some clothing. I'm F_cking busy working that I still haven't got time to do anything......
I'm very used to wait at aitports and to ttake flight very early in the morning, also used to sleep everywhere so I always bring with me ear plugs :-)
Hi! How are you? Ready to fly? Due to the change schedule on both of my outgoing flights, I haven't been able to do the check-in on lien, so tomorrow I have to be at BCN airport a bit earleir than expected, go to Royal Air Moroco desk and arrange this issue...... :-(
I'm good to go now. Can't wait.
See you tomorrow : )
