Fried spiders for Christmas lunch?


Thought I'd kick off a post for this trip - I believe it's going to be a full group. I'm Sarah, 31, from Gloucester. I've done a few Exodus trips but only one other cycling one - that was a Grade B too and Day 1 nearly killed three quarters of the group by heading straight up a mountain in Turkish midday sun! I'm praying that this trip will be a bit flatter - I'm not built for uphill on a bike!

Very excited about the places we'll be cycling through. Have never been to anywhere out that way before so a whole new culture to look forward to.

Hope some others say hello on here too, otherwise....see you all in December!

I did this a couple of years ago. I don't recall it being very hilly (I too am built for downhill) but it was exceptionally hot, especially the first few days in Thailand! I thoroughly enjoyed the trip, particularly the 3 different countries which were very different to each other.

I didn't try the spiders though others in our group did - tastes just like chicken apparently!

Enjoy - I'm off cycling in Rajasthan though no-one from my trip appears to be on this forum!



Hi Sarah,

Don't worry about the hills, there's no problem in retreating to the support bus if you need to especially in the heat. I've been on a cycling trip to Jordan with Exodus and a couple of others with Explore and I spent the millennium in Thailand treking amongst the northern hill tribes. I'm really looking forward to this trip and I remember the chocolate covered ants were very tasty although the news over there at the moment is pretty awful regarding the floods.

 Looking forward to meeting you.
