Anyone joining me?

hi - Just booked up for Discover Burma trip on 8 December - anyone joining me?

Yes I am! It's a long way off but it should be an amazing trip. Looking forward to meeting you.

They said there was one other female booked on when I booked up.

Yes, December is an awful way off, but it will be here before we know it.  Really looking forward to it, and be good to meet you.



Is there anyone else out there who is joining us?


Hi Lucy and Catherine.  Glad to know there are at least two other single women on the trip.  New people, new places, new experiences - it doesn't get much better than that.  See you in a couple weeks.


Good to hear from you, and likewise, pleased to hear that there are other female solo travellers!

I'm starting to get myself organised now, I've got my visa (easier than I expected) and my malaria tablets.  Got my shiny crisp new dollars last week.  Have you given any thought to how much to take.  I didn't want to be left with money but equally didn't want to be caught short either given that we can't rely on the ATM or credit cards.  I've got $700 at the mo.  I've already booked on to the balloon flight so hope that weather will allow that to go ahead.


I guestimated $100 for tips; meals not included $25 X 14 = $350 (may sound high but beer may not be cheap); and optional excursions $100.  I am not much of a shopper but I would be bummed if I saw something I couldn't live without and didn't have the money for it so am rounding it all out and bringning $1,000.  I am going to Vietnam for two weeks from Burma so what I don't spend in Burma can be used there.  I arrive in Rangon one day earlier than the group.  Anyone else coming in early?  


That's got me pondering if I have enough!  I am in town at the weekend, so might get a bit extra - I'm probably going to India in March so if I end up with excess it can be used then, so think I might play safe and get a wee bit extra.  Lucky you doing Vietnam too - is that also with Exodus?  Certainly somewhere on my to do list.  I'm on the group flight, so not getting in any earlier - kind of wish I had planned that so that I could have a bit of jet lag catch up before we set off, but never mind - sure all will be good.


I meant group leader TIP, not trip


hello all

I am looking forward to meeting you all very soon.



Looking foward to meeting everyone.  I live in the North East of England so really hoping that the predicted horrendous weather doesn't cause any travel delays!

Just need to get myself motivated to pack now - this is the bit I hate - what to take, am I taking enough or too much!!  Just want to be there and start enjoying it!

 See you all soon! 


It is -12 C here in Utah.  I can't wait to get to the warmer temperatures.  See you Sunday!
