Libyan Desert Explorer trip


My name is Bill.  I'm from Melbourne Australia and am booked on this trip.  Would like to greet and chat to any one else who is going on this trip.  It's my first time to Libya though I've been to Egypt, Jordan and Morocco.



Hi Bill and fellow travellers,

My name is Elaine, I'm from Christchurch, New Zealand and it is also my first trip to Libya. Like you, I have also been to Egypt, Jordon and Morocco and I can't wait to get back to the desert again. I fly out of Christchurch/Sydney with Emirates on 2nd April, when do you travel? It will be good to have another traveller from downunder on the tour.

Hi Elaine, what is it with us Antipodeans that we love the desert?  I actually fly out on 16 March to London where, a couple of days later, I fly to Tunisia on a 2 week trip, then back to London for a few days before off to Libya on the 3rd Apr.  I thought while I'm over there, I might as well see as much as possible.

Tunisia sounds brilliant Bill, I look forward to hearing about your time there. I agree it's too far to go for a short time, I'm going on to Spain, Portugal and Turkey after Libya. That should cure my travel bug-for a few months anyway.

I was hoping I would have company on arrival at Tripoli, oh well, she'll be right, it can't be any worse than Cairo. I just hope that group visa gets to me on time with the departure time-difference.



Hi Bill and Elaine - I'm from Christchurch!

Elaine - I'm leaving on 1 April on Emirates but I'm overnighting in Dubai so we are probably on the same flight to Tripoli if you are flying straight through. (EK745 arriving 1.20pm, 25 minutes before the group flight). Would be good to meet up but you are right, it can't possibly be worse than Cairo (especially since it was my first ever destination outside NZ!)

After Libya I have 4 weeks in Morocco -2 travelling with Intrepid (can I mention that) and 2 treking Atlas Mountains with Exodus.

See you both in 3 weeks,Heather.


Hi Heather,

Welcome aboard.  I'm in the final stages of packing my suitcase as I'm off next Tuesday.  Look forward to catching up with you & Elaine on 3rd April.
