Hi, anyone signed up for this trip? It might be good to have a chat before we go - maybe meet up at the airport - its a long flight!
Hi, I am signed up for this trip too. Haven't travelled solo before so a bit apprehensive. I will stay in a hotel near the airport the night before. Be good to meet up with anyone at the airport or even at hotel night before!
Well that makes three! Happy to meet at airport but I won't be staying over night before we fly.
Hope you have all got your visa and jabs sorted.
Hi Bob, Carol and Sian
I am booked on this trip . Flying from Gatwick .Looking forward to it.
It will be my 6th trip with Exodus
I am staying at the Premier Inn North terminal Gatwick , the night before the flight .
I am booked on this trip and really looking forward to it! Yes, it would be great to meet at Gatwick pre flight. Sandy
Then there were six!
I think we fly from the North terminal. Anyone have a suggestion of where we should meet up?
Jabs tomorrow. Yuck!
I have had comfirmation from Exodus (Radek Novak) that we are not going to any high risk areas.
The advice I got from the travel nurse was that anti-malarial was only required for high risk areas, she recommended malarone because it does not have too many side effects. I am taking insect repellent and spraying my clothes with permethrin. (Ordered from Amazon).
I always wear long sleeved shirts & long trousers.
See you at Gatwick .
Hello everyone, only 2 weeks to go now!
I was wondering about bringing my iPhone and buying a local SIM card. I have no idea what that would mean data wise, but I may want to use skype at some point.
Any tech thoughts?
I am with Orange the costs for data roaming are expensive. I just use my phone for the odd text.
If you want to Skype maybe an internet cafe would be a better option .At least then you would know what the cost was at the time
Yes I think you are right. Also realise I can probably find wi--fi in the bigger cities! I didn't think it through properly!
See you soon!
These are my tariffs from Orange for International Calls
The 50MB Bundle costing £61.27 , gives you enough for 50 e-mails with attachments or ine hour web browsing. The issue is they don't inform you when the bundle runs out they revert back to £8 per MB
I am staying at Days inn the night before.
This is my 5th trip with Exodus.
Looking forward to this holiday
Hi Sian and Colin... Thanks for input! Helpful.I think I'll use wi fi where possible. I'm taking a suitcase and a smaller rucksack than Colin!
This is my first Exodus trip and it's great to hear some of you have been before many times! Just over a week now! Very excited and looking forward to meeting you all. For those of us arriving on Fri morn, any ideas about where we can meet up for coffee or whatever?
I Think it would a good idea to take an overnight bag as I have been caught out before.
Looks like there are at least eight of us!
Looking forward to meeting everyone at Gatwick on Friday. Has anyone a proposal as to where?
What are peoples thoughts on currency? I was thinking of taking some Dong but the exchange rate here sucks. Now thinking of just taking USD and converting there - apparently a better rate. How much do people thing we will need?
See you all in four days - all very exciting!
Thanks for your thoughts. Breakfast sounds good - I assume you mean Garfuncles airside. My train theoretically arrives at Gatwick around 9.10 so with a bit of luck I should have checked-in and passed through security etc by 10.00. I will come and find you or give you a call. Bob
Hi All, thanks for sharing all your useful thoughts and Sian for checking out the luggage issue! I am bringing dollars and using atms there to pick up Dong. It seems we can't check in online so seats allocated at check in. Is that your understanding?
My train gets in at 9 as well so I'll get checked in and see you all airside! I'll be heading for a great big coffee! Mob number is 07939 587179
See you all soon!
Thanks for all your useful advice. Its my first exodus trip and really looking forward to it. I'm travelling to Gatwick on the morning so hopefully will recognise some of you at the airport. If not I shall try and pick some of you out the oter end if you're using the exodus luggage tags!
I'm possibly not taking any phone otherwise would've put my number out.
See you all either in departures or in Hanoi!
Hi see you all Friday or Colin see you tomorrow. Sandy yes I understand you can't check in online.
