Hi everyone,

Starting to get excited about the trip now that its just 2 months away.

This will be my 5th trip with Exodus but my first time to the Far East, and I'm really looking forward to it

Would be good to hear from anyone else going on the trip

Hi Diane

Nice to hear from someone else on our trip. I'm starting to get that holiday excitement feeling now too as my passport and visa arrived back today - seems more real now somehow!

This will be my second trip with Exodus. I did an India trip with them last year which was excellent. As far as SE Asia goes, I've only been to Thailand so Vietnam will be totally new for me. 

Are you doing the Cambodia extension too?

Hopefully we'll hear from some of our other trip mates soon!

Nice to hear from you! I've got my visa too so that's one job ticked off! Also had my jabs so really just money to sort now....and packing of course!
Are you on the group flight? I'm flying from Manchester via Doha. I am told I will join the group flight in Doha -dreading getting a delay on the Manchester flight and missing my transfer but am sure it will all work out :)

Am not doing the Cambodia ext as unfortunately couldn't get that much time off work - will have to go some other time

I'm also flying from Manchester via Doha so we're probably on the same flight! Departs about 14:00 ish I think? So at least we'll have company if we miss the connection :-)

See you soon

Hi Diane, I am not on the same trip as you, but Trails of Vietnam one week later. Noticed that you have your visa, how did you do this? Being a bit lazy but thought I may as well tap into the know how that you have. Beginning to get really excited now. Need to get a bit more active too since my trip has walking, cycling and canoeing.

Thanks for your help.

Helen - Yes I'm on the 2pm flight too - nice to have someone else travelling from the North!
Will have to look out for exodus tags at the airport!

Susan - I just followed the advice in the trip notes. I did use the visa agency Travcour as I could track its progress in the post -(I once lost my passport for about 3 weeks in the post!) I don't think it's essential you can print off the forms from the embassy website and send direct

Hi Guys, I'm on the Vietnam trip starting 9 Nov. Flying out of London around 2 ish on the Friday. Have booked flights independently but believe I'm on the same flight as the main Exodus group. Sounds like you're flying direct from Manchester - Doha. We're going via Doha too so guess we'll be on the same flight for the Doha - Hanoi leg so look out for those Exodus travellers sleep walking through Doha airport no doubt.

Hi Rupert

Nice to hear from you. Yes I guess it sounds like we'll all potentially bump into each other in Doha unless like you say we're all half asleep! Looking forward to the trip now and meeting everyone in our group.

See you in (less than) 4 weeks. Eeeek!

Definitely on countdown now! Nice to hear from another member of our group!
Got my Vietnamese Dong today - I'm a millionaire!! Hopefully things are quite cheap and it will go a long way, though will probably take some US dollars as well just in case.

See you in 3 weeks and 2 days!

Really looking forward to the holiday and meeting you all.  We're arriving on the 9th via Singapore and London so we won't meet until Hanoi. We're almost ready for the holiday - despite having the trauma of our passports going missing in the (recorded) post on their way to the Vietnamese embassy and having to get replacements.  See you all soon - looking forward to chilling out and exploring Vietnam.

Hi Tracey & Keith

Wow! Sounds like you had a nightmare with your passports - glad it's all sorted now. You'll need a holiday now after that stress!

See you in Hanoi

Looking forward to meeting you all in a weeks time!

Helen - if you want to meet up at Manchester (after security) let me know then maybe we can negotiate the transfer in Doha together. If it's easier you can try and contact me via facebook to arrange a time and a place.

Hi Diane

Yes that sounds like a plan. Let's meet at the gate before we board in Manchester so we can make sure we team up when we do the transfer in Doha. I've been through there before and seem to remember it was a little bit hectic! I'll have a pink and grey Karrimor rucksack as my hand luggage and have wavy red hair (probably in a ponytail knowing me!)

See you soon

Sounds like a plan! I have a grey and purple rucksack and brown shoulder length hair and glasses!
See you at the gate

This is our first Exodus trip so a bit of a new adventure. Like Tracey and Keith we're travelling from London via Singapore. We're arriving in Hanoi on SQ176 on 9th. Looking forward to meeting you all at the hotel, or en-route if anyone is on the same Singapore to Hanoi flight.  Anne and John
