My wife and I are booked on this trip. Anyone want a chat before we go?
Not much activity here. I am on this trip, old American guy travelling alone. My wife can't usually travel this time of year so I go alone and join a group. My trip from Atlanta, GA, USA will be about 25 hours to Colombo so I am going two days early to rest at the Sanmali.
When I registered about a month ago there were 9 people already signed up, probably mostly Brits.
Have you applied for your ETA yet?
We've been away a few times with Exodus and sometimes people reply to posts and sometimes don't. However we always seem to have a good group of people! It's true most on the trip are from the UK but on the last one we had 2 Canadian Ladies who also had a long journey like you. Yes I applied online for the visas and got them back straight away but I don't know if they will be as quick for an American.
I'm also getting on a bit but still working (just) but winding down. My wife Dawn also works part time. We live near Lincoln in the UK (about half way up on the right hand side). Now starting to look forward to it as it's now less than 8 weeks. Speak soon, Ray
Well, I sent my ETA application yesterday and have not received an e-mail, but I went on-line to check the status and it says my ETA is approved, so I guess I am good to go.
The Adam's peak climb sounds very interesting and challenging, too challenging for me. Those of you that go will enjoy, I am sure. The Pinnawela elephant orphanage sounds like one of the options that I would like to do.
I asked Gosia Knas if they could give us a little more info on our group. This is what I got. We now have 15 participants, max is 18. Ages range from 27 to 68. There are 4 males and 11 females.
See you soon.
I am also going on this trip!
Really looking forward to it. I am travelling on my own, as I frequently do, and looking forward to meeting everyone.
Not convinced I am up to climbing Adams Peak, but may change my mind when I get there........or not!!
See you all soon
Hi Carolyn and you too Craig. It seems half of us have now got on here. I hope no one has suffered in the floods. I read a few weeks ago Jim was 'snowed in' in Atlanta! I hope he has dug himself out. Carolyn, I don't know if you have been on this type of trip with Exodus but there always seems to be a few singles and it wouldn't surprise me that there quite a few on this. Now starting to think about this trip as only about 4 weeks to go! Must sort out may camera gear! My wife has just asked about malaria tablets, anyone taking them?
See you soon, Ray
It is great that so many of us have signed in. So far we have Ray & Dawn, Mandy & Tash, Craig & Zoe, Carolyn, Jim. It will help with learning everyone's name.
Incase you haven't looked at the reviews lately for this trip there are 3 more that were posted in January. All very good.
My travel clinic recommends malaria pills for Sri Lanka. I think they are very conservative. I will be taking Doxycycline, easy and cheap.
While you guys are meeting in London I will already be in Marawila working on my jet lag.
Just in case you are interested our trip is closed for registration because we are now full, should be 18 of us.
Our group leader will be Roshan Fernando. This is good news because Roshan gets good comments in the reviews.
