Whales & Leopards

just wondering if anyone else out there is on the same trip.

less than a month to go...



Hi Simon, I'm going on this trip. Less than 2 weeks now!

Are you coming from somewhere other than UK? Trip departs 22nd from London.  


hi hazel,

i am on the group flight from london - just got the date wrong! i live & work in london so will be on the tube to heathrow a week on friday.  i'm checking in early as my football team are playing on tv so if you fancy a pre departure drink i'll be in a bar

really looking forward to the game drives & some photography




Hello again,

Glad you've got the right date now!    

I'm also on the group flight, driving down from Birmingham. Not sure about the pre-departure drink if football is involved!




too right, it's always handy turning up on the right day for a flight!
So after a bit of research it seems heathrow t4 is a bit of a footy free zone without paying for lounge access. I'll have to go get a pink carnation so you can spot me

are you travelling alone? I assume there's more than 2 of us booked but I guess we won't find out until we land


Bad luck on the footy front! Yes, I'm travelling alone.

There must be more than 2 of us on the trip or they wouldn't be running it, though not everyone may be coming from London. I know there is a 'group booking' on the flight, but not how many. So some of us will have plenty of time to get to know each other before we land! See you Friday, I'll look out for the pink carnation!    


We'll be airborne in less than 3 days...
I've been checking out the forecast & thunderstorms look likely - more photo opportunities!

I'll have my phone with me Friday & will update my location on here - holding out some hope of the footy, can there really only be 1 bar on the departure side?

See you soon, si

spot on jason - watch out for the reading shirt.  the bridge bar seems to be the only option after security & before security wetherspoons is the only pub & they don't usually have sport.

must get on & start packing, see you in a few hours!
