Inca Trail & The amazon Rainforest departing the UK 31st Aug 18

Hi,

Is anyone doing this trip? I am travelling solo and thought it would be nice to have some famiar faces or names before I go as it's the first time I have done anything like this.

Laura

Hi Laura, are you starting the Inca Trail on the 2nd September? I leave the day before on group flight AV121 from Heathrow, is that the same as you?

Hi Paul, 

I am flying into Lima, don’t have the flight number to hand. I have 3 nights in the rain forest first before the Inca trail so I think we are on different trips. 

Laura

Hi Laura, I'm flying via Bogota. Sounds like we're on different trips. Have a fab time though! :)

Paul

Hi Paul,

Yes sounds like it.

you too! 😊

Laura

Hello Laura,

I believe my husband and I are on this trip. We will be arriving in Lima in the early hours of September 1st and will be going to the tambopata reserve before doing the Inca trail. We are from Ontario Canada and are excited to do this trip.

Anna

Hi Anna, 

Thanks for getting in touch, sounds like we are doing the same trip, I land in Lima at about 11am on the 1st September. Really excited too, it’s been something I’ve wanted to do for a long time.  Have you done anything like this before? I’m in Bedfordshire in England. Will be great to meet you both!

Laura

Hi Laura,

No we have never done this before but have wanted to for quite some time. We love to travel and have decided to try to do a big trip like this every few years. We have never done a hiking trip before but I think this will be super exciting.

Hi Anna,

That sounds like a great idea. I love to travel too but only recently been able to do something big like this.

We’ll I guess I’ll see you in Lima! 😀

Laura

Hi Laura,

I'm doing the same trip but departing on 17th August so will have a two week head start! I'm just down the road from you in St Albans if you want to grab a beer and discuss planning. Andy 

Hi Andy, 

Thanks for your message, shame we aren’t on the same trip. Would have been good to have someone to navigate the airports with as it’s the first time I’ve traveled this far on my own. Have you done anything like this before?

Laura

Hi Laura,

It's a completely new experience for me. Would be good to compare notes - you can PM me through WhatsApp, my number is 07970106784.

Andy

Hi Laura and Anna.

We are on this trip and looking forward to it. We are arriving in Lima a day early as we are flying British Airways direct from Gatwick.

Done a lot of hiking but not at this altitude!

Hope your training is going well. Unfortunately we live in Norfolk in the UK and can’t find too may mountains!! However, did get to the dizzy heights of 42 feet above sea level last weekend on a 6mile walk around the Norfolk Broads. 

More to do, we think!!

Barry and Ann

Hello Barry and Ann

My husband and I have done some hiking in our area as well. We are looking forward to this adventure. We have never done a hike at high altitude before and I am a bit nervous as to how we will make out with the high altitude.  We are at a whopping altitude of 300 meters above sea level! Lol

I watched a you tube video of someone hiking the Inca trail and it was breath taking. The views were amazing and a little scary! It's hard to believe that this trip which we booked over a year ago is so close. Look forward to meeting everyone.

Anna and Henk

Hi Everyone,

I have the same problem as you Barry and Ann, it's a real struggle to find a hill let alone a mountain on the Bedfordshire/Cambridgshire border! I did have a long weekend in the Lakes a month ago and did some good walking there but still no where near the same altitude, sounds like we will all be in the same boat.

Can't believe its only five weeks away already!  I'm sure the time will fly by now. Looking forward to meeting you all, and it's a bit of a relief to have some familiar names before I arrive as I am travelling solo.

 

Laura

 

 

Hi We used to live in that area, in St Neots, so I know the lack of hills will be an issue for you, Laura. We‘re In Brecon this weekend and have a week in Derbyshire to try and get some practice in but still not the altitude. 

Looking forward to it but I think my next dilemma will be what to pack!

Ann and Barry

Wow! Small world, I live 15mins from st Neots! 

I’m already stressing about what to pack. I think the temperature is going to be quite varied. I think I’ll have to be quite strict with myself!

Enjoy your weekend! 

 

Laura

Hi,

I'm also scratching my head about what to pack whilst keeping things to a minimum!

Andy

Hi Everyone,

I to am struggling with what all to pack or not pack. We are usually the type who don't check bags and can make everything fit in a carry on however with the varied climates we will have to bring more things than ever before.  I have made and redone my packing list several times over! 

Anna

Hi Just received an excellent list from Exodus regarding the packing for the Inca Trail, which will make it much easier to decide what to take. 

Ann

Hello Everyone,

I am just curious to see it you have received a detailed itinerary that list the confirmed hotels that we are staying at throughout the trip. I have only received the hotel that we are arriving to and departing from in Lima. I would like to leave a list with my family as to what hotels we will be at during the trip. The itinerary I currently have says a specific hotel or similar.

Thanks Anna

Hi Anna.

No we haven’t seen any more details other than the start and finish hotel.  

We are hoping to get them soon!

It might be worth contacting Exodus if we don’t hear in the next week or so.

Barry and Ann

Hello,

 

My travel agent has contacted exodus by e mail to ask about the detailed hotel list so hopefully I will have an idea soon. We can't wait to meet everyone.

Anna

Hi everyone,

I'm getting very excited now and looking forward to meeting you all. It's my first time doing such a trip.

I'm travelling on my own. I'll be flying from Newcastle to Heathrow  and then getting the overnight group flight.  Hopefully I'll be able to meet up with those who are also getting this flight at Heathrow. 

Cate

Hi Cate,

I am on the group flight. Its the first time I’ve done anything like this and the first time I’ve flown this far on my own! Will be great to meet you. Only 3 weeks to go! 😀

Laura

Hi Cate.

We are travelling the day before the group flight from Gatwick. It was better flights for us. Looking forward to meeting up with you at the Lima Hotel.

Don’t worry about travelling on your own, we have done several trips like this and it doesn’t matter whether you are with someone or not. We go as a group and enjoy as a group. That’s the good thing about these trips.

Barry and Ann

 

Hi all,

 

Bit late to using these forums but im travelling on the 31st from Heathrow via Bogota. Is anyone else on these flights? Would be good to have someone to while away the hours on the stopover and navigate the airport with!

 

Hi Dave, 

Unfortunately not, I am flying via São Paulo to Lima.

Laura

Hi Dave, I think all on this trip are flying into Lima.

What's your flight number to Bogota? I fly from Heathrow via Bogota (but it's on the 30th at 22:40) - flight number AV121.

Paul

I was on the Lima flight originally but it got changed a couple of months back. Im also on AV121 but its 22:40 on the 31st.

Looks like its just me then!

 

have a great time guys!

Can't believe today's finally arrived. I am jealous of those who are a!ready there.

Hi Laura

I'm at Newcastle waiting to board flight to Heathrow. I have checked in through to Lima so I'll look out for you through security near boarding gate. I'm wearing a green t-shirt and have a blue backpack.

I think 2 others in our group are also on this flight. 

If we miss each other I'm sitting in seat 46K on San Paulo flight.

Hopefully see you soon.

Cate

Hi Cate, 

I know i‘m a mixture of excited and nervous at the moment. Just double and triple checking I have packed everything While I wait for my lift to the airport!

Ok great I have a green vest and dark grey hoodie on with a black back pack. I’ll keep my eye out for you when I get through security.
