Who else is going?


This is my first trip of this kind & the first on my own,so it would be really nice if I could get to know fellow travellers prior to departure, it might help to calm the nerves!!! Any useful tips would be gratefully received too.




Hello clare. I'm travelling too. Nice to meet you.  And I was born in Woking! It will be a great trip so no need for nerves:-) I'm travelling with a friend who has never done this sort of trip before either and I know you will both have a brilliant time.

 One tip - gleaned from Exodus - is to bring a few pens or paper or postcards to give to the local children. Also wetwipes - for you - as aparently water could be a bit limited.  Lots of thin layers are better than one thick one; oh yes, and take a copy of your travel tickets and passport and hide them elsewhere in your luggage separate to the originals, just in case of emergency. I also photocopy info about where I am visiting rather than take a guide book, so once I've been there I can throw it away.




Hey Claire,nice to meet you too. Thanks for the tips-will put wet wipes & cheap stationery on the sainsburys list.

Look forward to meeting you,your friend & other fellow travellers in 4 weeks time-how exciting!!
