Vietnam 20 Dec - 3 Jan

Hi,

Really looking forward to this adventure and meeting like minded people.

Getting a little bit excited about it all now too! :-)

Hi I'm really looking forward to this trip also. Anyone flying on the group trip fancy meeting up at the airport? Anyone been to Vietnam before? Do we need to get a visa for this trip? I would value any trip advice. Sheila

Hi, I am happy to meet up if you want, never been to Vietnam before, but have friends who just came back and gave me some Dong, they had a great time.
Looking at the information sheet it has been mentioned that we do not need a visa.
I am bringing some Deet mozzie spray, but not sure if I will need it.

Hello Sheila & Andrea. We're looking forward to the trip too. Happy to try and meet up at the airport. We've never been to Vietnam before. Trying to get our typhoid injection, which has involved changing Doctors! Our son is 8 - year 4. Carrie.

Hi Carrie and family and Sheila,
Don't know Heathrow airport so well, so no idea on where is good to meet up, but as its only me I am happy to meet anywhere! I hope you managed to get your family jabs done?
Starting to get a lot excited about the trip now, although still need to get out on the bike more!
Andrea.

Hi all,
Just finally getting around to looking at the packing list today so excitement is mounting. Suggest maybe we all carry an "identifying object" in the Heathrow department lounge so we can spot each other?? (no roses though hehe). Looking forward to a very different christmas and meeting you all.
Cheers

Yes I'm so looking forward to this trip, not too long now. There must be a coffee shop somewhere after we've gone through the baggage checks and got rid of our bags. How about we hold a page of the trip notes with the exodus brand showing?

Sorry that last comment about meeting up was from me, Sheila!

So by the looks of things World of Duty Free is spilt into two sides in terminal 4 and if you walk through the middle of them there is a Costa Coffee there, how about there? (right by the duty free shopping........happy face). Trip notes are a good idea, look out for the exodus branding then. :)

Sorry, that was Sallie.

Costa Coffee sounds good Sallie I'll make my way there. Really looking forward to this holiday, it's creeping up on us now. Sheila

Fab - I'll see you and anyone else at Costa then. So on to the next point, what to take? I've read some of the reviews and still think I'm prone to over packing. Potentially bringing my saddle and pedals, a couple of pairs of padding shorts, vests, light waterproof jacket etc and then basic summer holiday kit. Did see one comment about taking a warm coat that threw me a bit?!

Yes I always take too much also, but at least we don't need to pack anything too smart for this one. I think Hanoi will be colder when we get there, I'm not taking a coat though, just a light waterproof, and I'll wear a light fluuffy fleece. I'm just taking a gel seat for the bike. Are you a serious cyclist?

Ahh a fleece is a good idea, I'll layer up! I'm not a serious cyclist, but I'm into my fitness and cycle commute etc. Hmm I need to scale back haha, maybe just bring a gel cover instead. Bug spray and suntan lotion are high on my list though.

Getting very excited now, but struggling to keep my packing to a minimum! Looking forward to meeting everyone.
