I have just bitten the bullet and confirmed for the final place on this trip.... Not long to go now, must read the notes again and work out what I need myself! Tim
I can't wait to go I'm trying to get organised
Hi, how did you order the currency, I was told it is a closed currency and could only get it once in Morocco. I have been looking at my clothes and trying to work out what I need.
Hi Ellen and Miranda.
Sorry for the late reply.. only just started getting emails to say there had been updates on the thread this morning... they seemed to be from someone else ... and those posts have since disappeared!
Anyhow... I have been on a couple of Exodus trips already... Delhi > Kathmandu - which was amazing. I want to go back to India. The other trip I went on was Cape Town > Vic Falls, also very good. The Wildlife in Namibia was amazing - if you ever get the chance!
I don't think my Hep B is up-to-date but don't think it should be a problem for this trip. Blimey 5 wks, 3 days... must get organised...
As for the trek, I think I will prob take boots as they mention ankle support, bit of a faff... but as the trip isn't too long will hopefully be able to pack relatively lightly!
I have actually got around to printing and starting to digest the trip notes..
I am probably going to take some Sterling and swap it at the airport on arrival for money. From the trip notes it reckons you can only take 1000 Moroccan in (approx £75) .... as we need around £60 just for the kitty I will just change a bit more on arrival.
As for power adaptors... if it is for a phone / mp3 / camera... I have a couple of these ones which are quite good...
http://toptravelgear.com/swiss-world-travel-mains-adapter-with-usb-port/ They work in most countries and have a usb port so with a usb lead can charge a phone or mp3 etc.. Because they will also let you plug into a UK socket I also use them as spare usb chargers here sometimes... saves carrying extra adaptors. A few manufacturers make similar designs, but I did read a few rough reviews on Amazon...
I am slightly concerned that the trip notes suggest a 4 season sleeping bag for March departures... as it is April the next day (3 Season suggested) I am hoping my 2 to 3 season bag and silk liner will be upto the mission! Only needed for one or two nights anyway so can always wrap up a bit I guess..
I think I have most of the rest of the kit (although I am sure I will find a few more bits I "need" to take! So hope that everyone else's prep is ok.. we will be there in 4 weeks!
Just wanted to say hello, i'm coming on the trip too! Not long to go and i'm still completely unorganised! We should arrange a coffee meet-up at the airport? I'm sure we'll all be easily identified!
Ha ha - organised - what is that?
A meetup at Heathrow sounds good, I was going to suggest somethign similar. Have you been on any Exodus trips before?
I was supposed to be doing this exact trip in october however dues to ermmmm a slight problem I was unable to go! I'm sure i'll have plenty of time to explain on the holiday!
Any idea who's coming on the trip with us?
I am going to try and look at everything tomorrow and work out my clothes, footwear etc.
Getting very excited. Meeting up would be good.
Hi all I'm coming too but to be honest I haven't got much sorted as work seems to be getting in the way - so am hoping have everything I need from previous hols!! Next weekend must sit down and sort things! An airport meet would be good
Thought I would say hello too, as I'm coming as well.
Like Ellen, first trip for me with Exodus and very excited. Thanks for the excellent and useful advice above as currently in the category of "not organised" at all.
Meeting at Heathrow would be good.
and i've realised how little time off from work I have until we leave....
Re meeting, I guess it may prove difficult however i'm likely to be getting my final coffee kick in Costas before we fly so if anyone is passing call in?? That may just be easier....i'll have a red rose in my hair...haha
Maybe we should all have something red? I will have a red rucksack. Will look out for you.
Sounds good I will find something red !!
Hope you are all well. see you in 10 days !!
Ok so with a week to go I decided I really should get organised - so got my bag and sleeping bag down from the loft and now have a week to panic over what clothes and how many pair of shoes! No doubt I will pack way too much - I really shoud have learnt by now ! Will look out for people wearing red round costas!
how much money is anyone taking ??
I've got plenty of immodium to go around, and wet wipes and alcohol gel to clean an entire school trip of children!haha Yes I see that the temperatures are around 29c, maybe a higher factor would be better? I have factor 15 but i've got olive skin and plenty of loose fitting flowing tops to cover me up!
Think i'll take around £200 and have my card on me as there should be plenty hole in the walls in Marrakech.
I haven't even started to think about foot wear...arghh 6 days to go! Getting excited now!
Hi Eveyone, I'm going on this trip too, looking forward to it although not at all organised! Thanks for all the tips. I read a few reviews for the trip that said bags often don't make the Casablanca-Quarzazate connection so the advice is to take a change of clothes etc in our handluggage. I'll be doing that for sure but more because my sleeping bag takes up half my luggage so will need to overflow to my handluggage! Looking forward to meeting you all :) Lynne
Welcome Lynne! Where did you hear that the bags don't make the Casablanca-Quarzazate connection ? May have to rethink the packing for the 100th time this week! Weather looks like a complete mixed bag next week, so i'm packing a bit of everything!
Wow can't believe we have one day to go. I have read that as well Lynne, I have a change of clothes in my hand luggage but I am worried about my bag size!!
Can't wait to meet you all, I have not got anything red but will keep an eye out.
Hi, Miranda - it's not huge but is a little bulky with pockets.
Sun would be good, I have packed layers
See you all tomorrow
