I just booked my vaccinations... ugh...

Thu, 02/04/2010 - 19:21

I think the only one left I need to get after going to nepal at easter is yellow fever - I stick needles into other people several times a day but when they try and put them in me.....

hey guys,

 Can i ask which vaccinations everyone is having? I've just had my HepA and Typhoid duel, still need yellow fever and am going to get Hep B too (incase for what ever reason i end up in hospital!) is anyone having meningitis?

 Also, just a random question. I wonder if anyone would like to spend a bit of time in one of the local orphanages on our "half day off"? I'm hoping to support one in the area for the climb, and would love to be able to visit one that i could help. Anyone else got similar ideas? charities etc?

Am having Yellow fever and probably the meningitis - also a hep B 5 year booster although this is being done by work. (I've had all the others already!)

 Is anybody getting the visa before they go - looking at the other forums it seems to be fine to get it on arrival but I don't want to hold everybody up if everyone else gets their visa beforehand?

I'm getting my visa on arrival as long as I know someone else is!!!!

yeh i am going to get my visa on arrival aswell, dont want to risk sending my passport off to the embassy in london now!! anyone planning on taking any medication for the altitude sickness? and what about the safari on the last day? im up for that while im there!! also .  . . us dollars . . . how much shall i take?? :P im looking 4ward to getting my free exodus bag so i can start packing!! only 2 months to go!! haha! :D

packing! already! i ran the london marathon last weekend so all my spare time has been spent training for a flat run...not a steep walk. still plenty of time to get hill-walking fit i guess! i would love to do a safari on the last day. i am getting my visa on arrival too - it seems the cheapest & easiest way. not sure on how much money to take - i think the visa costs about $50, then enough for tips, safari (if you are doing it) & a few well-deserved drinks at the end! didnt think i would get excited about paying the balance of the trip but less than 8 weeks to go...yeah!

Thu, 05/13/2010 - 13:24

I'm getting mine on arrival! 

 I've been prescribed altitude sickness pills too... whether or not they will work is another matter!

 This is coming round sooo fast.

PS getting visa on arrival as well

Thu, 06/10/2010 - 13:25

I am going to take malaria tablets - malarone recommended especially for the time at lower levels. Had the swine flu jab too...ouch!! Cannot believe we are off in 2 weeks!

Hey there,

So I'm not sure I could have realistically cut it any finer but I've only just today decided to join the Rongai 29 June departure (land only)... I'm still in my full time job until 25 June so it's going to be a bit of a mad rush to get to LHR but I look forward to meeting you all in Kili / Marangu!

See you soon,

Does anybody going on the group flight want to meet up at Heathrow?

Mon, 06/21/2010 - 22:54

Is anyone else getting Tsh when we get there?

Tue, 06/22/2010 - 08:34

yes, would be good to meet at heathrow. i am planning to get there quite early too as really dont want to risk cutting it fine on the m25 on a friday! i am taking US dollers but will probably also get some shillings on arrival too. soooo excited...and a bit scared!!!

Tue, 06/22/2010 - 11:55

I will probably be at heathrow fairly early - am getting the tube and really want to avoid the central line at rush hour with my exodus kit bag!

Tue, 06/22/2010 - 22:11

I'm taking $230 dollars in total. $50 for the visa, $40 kenyan lunches (don't think this will get spent), $60 porters tip, and $40 for taxi fair on my last day, $40 extra for pretty tanzanian things :) and BEER. I'll be converting most of this to Tsh.

Wed, 06/23/2010 - 12:12

anyone know how we do private messages on this forum - I'll send people my mobile number and we can text to meet up at the airport? (Unless anyone knows Terminal 3 well enough to suggest a good time and place to meet?)

I was reading one of the other forums  someone said that the hotel only takes US dollars for beer and food, the porters tips are done in US dollars as is the visa so the only thing that you needed local currency for was souvenirs. Really confused now.... (and very excited too).

And this is why I shouldn't be allowed to got to airports on my own - we are indeed terminal 4!
