Hi, I booked the last spot on this trip this morning. I'm very excited about visiting India and especially doing it in this manner.
I'm currently taking 10 months off work and this will be my last trip of my break before returning to work in January so I'm hoping it will be pretty special.
So who else is on the trip?
Last year I cycled the Nicaragua, Costa Rica & Panama trip which was great fun and few of the people on this trip had been on the trip to Kerala and recommended it saying they had a great time. On the trip was one of the Exodus staff (not working) and he wrote an article bellow for Exdus. One of the climbs on day 5, Ascent to Ooty is quite tuff, but apart from that it is fairly easy going. I think the departure date is Saturday the 26th November not the Sunday! I had good reports on the food saying it was very good.
Will be fun
Not joining you on the trip but its fantastic - one of the best I've done - and great team of staff to help you - say hello to Shibu the driver for us - a true gentleman! Ooty is a haul - but a great sense of accomplishment at the top after 36 hair pin bends! ( and a lovely hotel) We were recommended to take ciprofloxacin for the inevitable Delhi Belly - our GP an experienced indian traveller understood the need and gave us a prescription - but it was possible to buy it there - works a treat! Have a great time.
Gail, thanks for your notes. I've contacted my GP and they've issued me with a prescription. Not the same antibiotic but something as good, apparently my GP tells me that the bugs in India are now getting a tollerance to Ciprofloxacin. Until I pick up my prescription I can't tell you what they advised me to get this time.
I'd like to say I'm looking forward to the hill but being a solid 106kg's it's a lot to drag up the hill. Hopefully I'll be below the 100kg's mark by the time we go. Lot's of cycling should help with that.
I now have my VISA. Went through first time unlike a friend of mine who for a totally different trip needed 3 attempts.
So now it's just riding practice and looking forward to it all. Can't wait.
Looks like it is only the two of us. I am really looking forward to the trip, 3 days left of work. This is my sixth Exodus trip now and they have all been great fun in such different ways. May bump into you at T3 or at the stopover in Dubai.
I took the last place available so I know it's just not the two of us. Checked in online this morning for tomorrow's flights.
Off to take the saddle and pedals off my bike. I've not been out on it this week, couldn't be bothered to mend the two punctures I got night cycling the heath and woods last week.
Bring it on.
