ACE - Imperial China and Yangtze River Cruise

Hopefully there is someone out there on the same trip as me.  Because of the long flight from the US (Non-stop Chicago to Beijing), and the late arrival, I have opted to fly in a day early and rest up before everyone else arrives.

 This is my first trip with Exodus (Egypt for February was canceled), but also have Morocco booked for September.  Anxious to hear from fellow travelers so we can compare notes.  I am a photographer and will be bringing about 35 pounds of camera gear in addition to my other luggage.  I hope there is at least one other photographer on the trip.

So?  Anyone book this trip?

my private e-mail is wesgrady@gmail.com, if you want to write directly to me.

Hello Wes, yes there are fellow travellers. Jessica & I (John) will be flying in from the UK on the 19th with the same idea of resting up for a day before the trip gets under way. We have also tagged Hong Kong on to the end. We have been on two previous Exodus trips - one around Thailand and last year Delhi to Khatmandou. Our experience is they are really well organised, they include some stuff off the beaten track and are more concerend with the experience than the luxury which suites us.  A lot depends on the guide and the group as to whether it is good or great.

Sadly we are not what you would call photographers - more travel snaps with aspirations. However, there are nearly always photographers on the trips.

Looking forward to meeting you.

 All the best

Hi, John, Hi, Jessica.  I have traveled a lot with Club ABC (Greece, France, Germany, Mexico, and Alaska) and once with Overseas Adventure Travel, last summer to Kenya and Tanzania.  I was supposed to be in Egypt right now, but we all know the reason I am not.

 The photo I am using is not, happily, of me, but rather an older Cuban who makes his living sellng hats and baskets in Tridad de Cuba, where I had the pleasure of spending some time last December.  I am, however, older than most travelers at 66.  My wife chooses to take the road more traveled and is off to Italy again this year as she did last year.  Being an artist, she like to paint where the old masters learned their trade.  So, I travel alone.  I am also booked for Morocco in September with Exodus.

 Lets plan on meeting for drinks on Saturday afternoon.

Hi Wes, yes it would be good to meet up for drinks Saturday afternoon. When I have sorted out times of arrival I can let you know when we are likely to be there. Thanks for the link. Have you used Tripadvisor - useful for checking out the hotel too. With the trip approaching fast now we are into final preperations and getting pretty excited.

Best regards

Hi Wes,

We are due to get in about mid day so I expect we will be at the hotel early afternoon. By the time we are sorted I guess it will be latish afternoon when we meet up.

All the best
