I booked this trip a week ago! Soooooooo excited...so am not the only singleton on this trip then!??? The trip looks awesome, looking forward to getting away and adding a few more countries to my small list of places I've seen!
This trip is coming around really fast. Picked up my malaria tablets the other day and it hit home how little time there is before we go. Has anyone had the rabies jabs?
I'd check with Nomad's before you spend out on rabies jab's....I've been to a few places in Africa and never needed Rabies jabs...that said, there's always a small risk. Exodus office might also be able to offer advice on that one? Think it's yellow fever and Hep that's needed and the basic's etc...that said, I'll prob' get bitten by a rabid dog and die!!! Lovely!
I'll check with Nomad's just in case when I actually get off my arse and go in there!!!! Maybe tomorrow, got a gap between my clients so will move butt into gear. They've always been really good and spot on with advice in there and won't let you spend unnessary money. I don't fancy having any jobs...am scared of needles :-( and dead arms aren't good when you have swim training and races!
I'll give you a shout.
Hi everyone, another single going on this trip,cant wait 22 sleeps to go. Got final joining instructions today so its real now,SOOOOOO EXCITED.
That's so cool! 22 sleeps to go, must count them down until we can escape work!!!
Hi everyone! Getting really excited now! Especially as more people are on here now as well! Are you all flying from heathrow? Chris i dont think you do need rabies, they wernt going to give it to me, though i had it in the end as it was only a top up! Has everyone recieved their final joining instruction? I haven't yet! Jesse hope all goes well for u before we join u, i'd love to be a photographer lol trying to buy a new camera before i go!
Look forward to meeting you all!
Can't believe in 2 weeks time we will be have started the trip! Tash I also haven't received my joining instructions so fingers crossed they will come this week! My husband and I are flying out from Heathrow on a Kenyan Airways flight at around 8pm ish? Anybody else on this one?
Really looking forward to it and meeting you all.
Less than two weeks to go! Am excited but it's not hit me yet. Am on the 8pm ish flight leaving from Heathrow as well Susie.
Chris, I went into Nomad's the other day and you can have the Rabies jab's but it doesn't stop you getting it, if you are more than 24hrs away from medical help then yes get it. I would if I was backpacking on my own but I am figuring that we should be able to get to ehlp if nessesary in that time frame...fingers crossed!!!!
Jesse, hope you enjoy your travels. Sounds like an awesome thing you are doing. I asked if my running club had any t-shirts left over from our annual 10k run last week and we're all out! Last year they couldn't get rid of them!!!! Oh well, I asked. One thing I will do, as always is to take some clothes I can leave behind. We've done this on pretty much all the trips I've done, leaving kit and clothes we don't want for the porters and assistants. They are always greatful for it.
Anyway, 9 1/2 working days left...not that I am counting....
I just saw your message. I am not going anywhere near a camera shop as am too busy with work....BUT I just looked on Amazon and I can order you one....I'm not great with camera's....you'd never believe I have a qualification in photography! BUT...I typed in
Is that of any use????
All sorted, delivery to me is around 3-5days so shouldn't be a problem and postage was free as well so no problemo.
If you like you can show me what I really should be doing with my camera when I get there as am rubbish at reading instructions and sorting out the correct settings!!!!??????
I was just wondering whether you guys have received your final joining instructions as I am still awaiting mine? 1 week to go...!
See you all soon :)
I got mine a few weeks ago as well, ping them an email from the sight, they come back to you quickly so am sure it's just a slight oversight on their part.
Jesse, your filter arrived today! How quick was that!????
Hi everyone, my husband and I are joining you on this trip - really looking forward to it now!
I had a few questions about what everyone is taking. Is anyone taking gaitors? Also, I can't seem to decide how much spending money to take, working it out with the trips as extras, tips and a souvenir allowance I have worked out £500 each but this seems quite a lot?
We received our joining instructions so hopefully all set. Last time we did an Exodus trip we were given a kit bag; no kit bag this time but I'm assuming nobody else got one either!
See you all soon
Thanks everyone, we have now bought some gaitors too as didn't want to be the only ones to regret it! Will hopefully protect trousers as well as ankles etc from biting things.
I think we have changed up about 400 each. Yes I bought a foldaway bag to put stuff in for the Masai Mara bit, can't see how big it is as I haven't opened it yet, but looks maybe like a small sports bag size. My husband will use the mini backpack from our main ones but that's not enough space for me!
Is it a bit crackers to bring a hairdryer??!
I think we take out some stuff for the two days, split off into smaller vans and then leave the rest of our stuff in the bigger bags on the big truck which stays behind somewhere.
Hmm, will think more re hairdryer; I have really long, misbehaving hair but probably best to see how full my bag gets first! x
Packing done (prob got all the wrong stuff), work sorted I think...still got five clients tomorrow morning a run and a quick swim....why so much before we travel eh!????
Looking forward to meeting you all, as is Eric the Hungry Caterpillar...will explain all soon... :-)
I'd say not to worry about a a hairdryer but you know what will happen if you bring one....we'll all be hunting for plug sockets and when we find one we'll all be forming a queue to use it!!!!
