Hi Everyone,

This will be my first Exodus trip and I can't wait - just 4 months now!  It's great to see the trip is full up.

Louise - thanks for the top gear tip off.  I saw it when if first aired but it'll be good to see it again and refresh.  This was one of my inspirations for visiting Vietnam and doing this trip but I didn't realise it was still on iplayer, so cheers for the info.

Roll on September 22nd!

Hello Everybody

 Glad the trip is full, when I first booked it, it was just me and the guide!

 Top Gear was kind of an inspriation for me too also my son moved out to Vietnam in January to teach scuba diving in Nha Trang but this weekend he is actually moving to Fiji to work with volunteers in marine conservation so I won't get to see him after all

Can't wait for the trip though and this is lovely that we can message before we actually meet.

Is anyone flying from Manchester?

Hi Everyone,

 I didn't know about the top gear programme, will definitely check it out! I'm glad i'm not the only one trying to get my legs ready, I think half the battle will be sitting in the seat for that length of time. I decided to come on this trip as a birthday present to myself and I've always wanted to go so thought why not do it in style. This is my first bike holiday so a little nervous/excited about it.

 Has anyone done any of the Audax cycle routes? Thought about trying to get out for one every week or 2 to get used to the distance, would be great if someone fancied joining me. I will be doing routes not too far away from London, maybe an hour max travel.

Hello all

I'm doing the one in Aug...quick question.

have you all had multiple vacinations...exodus say nothing is mandatory...my Gp has implied if I don't have every known jab it's a way one ticket !! 

With exception of malarial tabs I wasn't going to bother.

What is everyone else doing?

Chris.

Hi Chris,

It's probably best to take your Doc's advice even if they do tend to be over cautious - best to be safe than sorry.  I think there's some advice on the trip notes, if my memory serves me well.  Some vaccinations I'm already covered for but I'll be having the remainder in the next few weeks.

Hi Sue,

I live in Manchester and am doing the trip 2 weeks before you so if you need a training buddy let me know.
