Hi Joanne + friend Chris and I are on this trip.  We've been to India a couple of times and love everything about it. Very much looking forward to Bhutan.........actually, we are very excited about the whole trip! Meet you soon!    MOIRA

Hi Moira

Nice to hear from you, we have never been to India so don't know what to expect but looking forward to trip, esp Bhutan.

Various recommendations re malaria for this trip, what are you doing?!


Thu, 08/20/2009 - 20:44

Hi again - No, I'm not taking anti-malarials. I take Vit B1 and a Vit B Complex - apparently mossies don't like the smell and stay well away from you!!  It does seem to work, I don't usually get bitten (famous last word!). I'm sure you will find India to be magical, fantastic, addictive and the people are lovely.  The only thing we are dithering about is whether to take our walking boots - it sounds as though some of the walks up to monasteries could be quite steep and rugged. Are you planning to take proper boots?

Hi, thanks for the anti malaria info. Yes we are taking our boots we tend to travel in them - would hate to loose them! and the one time we leave them at home is when we wish we had taken them!

Hi all

David and Sue will be joining you on this one. We also have visited India before but concentrated on the more touristy locations then. We are both looking forward to it, the 17th can't  come soon enough.

Look forward to meeting you all

Not long to go now - just waiting for tickets.  Decided I would take my walking boots then Chris sent

me a photo of her Mum aged 76 in her trainers at Takstang Monastery!  So I am dithering again!! You'll have no problem recognising me at Heathrow - I will be the one wearing one trainer and one walking boot dithering about whether I want tea or coffee.

....and Chris will be the one with her bag tipped out looking for her passport/ticket/phone/purse/keys................How will we recognise you all

Hi, look forward to meeting you both David & Sue.

Chris you will probably recognise Derek & I, we will be the pair running through the airport with our boots in our hands having just made it to check in thru security - don't ask - it happens all the time to us!!!!!!!

The fact that we will be carrying Exodus travel bags might well be a giveaway!!

Regarding Moira's comment about my Mum going up to the monastery in trainers.........she in fact would never buy trainers or walking boots on her travels........always wore canvas shoes or she managed I don't know!   I'm also dithering about walking boots but think I will take  lighter pair but which has ankle support.

As for recognising Moira and I at the airport..........I think we may possibly be the more mature ladies in the group!

Has anyone got tickets yet?

Fri, 09/04/2009 - 17:21

Heya, no we haven't rec'd anything as yet.

Joanne & Derek

Sat, 09/05/2009 - 11:53

Oh good!  I won't panic yet!!!  I think I am almost ready. I live in Scotland and we have had the most appalling weather for the last 6 weeks so am looking forward to a bit of sunshine.  I am so

excited I can almost SMELL Delhi!!! 

Sun, 09/06/2009 - 14:23

We received our e-tickets by email last Wednesday. Nothing through the post though. No complimentary kit bags yet either.

David & Sue

Tue, 09/08/2009 - 11:45

Hi Moira, we have rec'd e ticket reference thru the post, that's all, nothing as exciting as whe you used to get whole load of tickets!  It is 25o here today so hope you get some sun and we take it with us to Bhutan.

Joanne & Derek

Torrential rain and howling gales again today - but who cares.  Got our e-tickets so all set to go. Yes, have even decided THE BOOTS ARE COMING!  It looks as though we have half a day free in Delhi on arrival to soak up the sounds, smells and sights.  Fantastic. Not sure what we are planning to do but Old Delhi is just amazing if you want to throw yourselves in at the deep end!!!  See you next week!

Aren't we all glad the Jet Airways strike is over!!

Sun, 09/13/2009 - 11:42

Yes definately a big phew of relief that strike is off! 

Roll on the 17th!
