Hi - I think there are two threads for the same trip - assuming you guys are talking about the week to Jordan over Christmas. But I will be there too. Counting down the days. One Q - are you taking a normal suitcase and a day sack or should we be putting our luggage into a backpack? Also are you taking a sleeping bag?

Hi all....I'm on the Jordan trip beginning in on the 21st. It's my last day of school (I'm a teacher in Taiwan) and I crazily booked a week in Sweden before the week in Jordan! I am bringing a sleeping bag and will have layers with me. Looks like the temepratures will be a little chilly. Super excited to see Petra and swim (float?!?!)  in the Dead Sea. See you all soon!

Hi, I'm on the trip on 21st and can't wait! I'm taking a suitcase and small rucksack, plus sleeping bag and layers, plus summer tops in case the sun comes out! Counting the days down, until the adventure begins!....

Hi, I'm Kat's housemate - looking forward to meeting you all!

So we have Kat and Jonny, Stephanie, Sharon and Me (because Diane is on the later trip) so far. Shall we meet in Heathrow and have a celebratory drink? I certainly need one. Three more days of work to get through. thanks for all the advice on what you're packing. Do you think trainers will be ok or are you taking proper hiking boots (mine are hot and heavy and would rather not lug them with me). Don't know how much hiking we are doing?? Looking forward to meeting you all

Have a drink for me! I'm arriving via Sweden, so I will meet you in Amman....and hopefully have one there ;) I've got a pair of lightweight low hiking shoes that will have to serve double duty when I'm cycling. With the sleeping bag and bike helmet, winter clothes for Sweden and cycling gear, I have a pretty large suitcase with me. 

 

Hi, so good to read the above re packing. Looking at temps in Amman and Aqaba they look quite different so also going for a range of optional layers etc and a sleeping bag. I have a duffle bag and day bag.  What are people doing re money? I read that the best option is the airport when we land- is that what others are doing? With Sterling or dollars?  Last minute panics but so looking forward to it. one more day of work to get through first.

A Heathrow celebratory drink sounds good! Maybe if one of us posts on here which bar/table location on arrival?...

Hi all, I'm also on the trip departing on 21st, looking forward to meeting you all! I think I might be a bit last minute at the airport but if there's time will come along for a drink - otherwise look forward to doing so in Jordan! I'm thinking layers too. Suitcase and daypack. And yes think I will bring a sleeping bag. I have about £250 of Jordanian dinar to bring. Very excited now!!

have a wonderful time, sorry im going the week later now !!

if anyone gets chance, post how your holiday is going for me,

Hi folks, am also on the trip. I'm doing a chilled night in hotel at Heathrow, as it was same price for that and parking. Drinks in Heathrow sounds good tomorrow.  Personally, I have a sleeping bag liner for a bit of extra comfort/warmth, as other bedding is provided. Have trainers and walking sandals. Very excited now.

Totally flew through check in and security. Sitting in The Curator near the bar part. , behind the entry pillar in a grey/black mottled hoodie..  will be reading my kindle if anyone makes it.
