Anyone else on the Classic Peru trip departing in December 2011?

Welcome Guest, to make a post on the forum you need to login or register.

Hi there!

Would be great to "virtually" meet anyone else who is signed up to travel to Peru in December on the same trip!

Hi Fran

I'll be on the same trip! Great to hear from someone else who is going. It'll be December before we know it! I'm getting very excited now.
It's the first time I've ever done anything like this and I can't wait. My birthday is on January the 2nd, so I guess we'll be halfway through our trek. Amazing!!

Hi Both

I'll be joining you as well and really looking forward to it. Been hoping to go to Peru for years so really glad I've finally got around to booking it!!

Excellent! Great to hear from you both, it'll be great to chat to you leading up to our departure.

I'm really excited, and a bit nervous as I've never done anything like this either, so hopefully there'll be a few of us in the same boat!

Are either of you going to the TrekSmart course in High Wycombe next month?

Nope - I'll be in Crete testing my new boots out by by walking down the Samaria gorge! Haven't done any trekking before so more than a bit nervous about the Inca Trail.

either of you doing the Amazon extension?

I haven't done any trekking before either, so I'm with you and more than a bit nervous! I'm doing the Amazon extension, that's the part of the trip I'm really looking forward to!

Excellent - was wondering whether I'd be on my own in the Amazon.

Just been told that the Madrid flight is full so I'll be flying on the Continental flight into Lima via Houston.

Anyone else on this flight?

Hi,

No, I'm afraid I am on the Heathrow flight via Madrid (at least I think I am!).....

I made it onto the Madrid flight. Hope you enjoyed Crete! I really do need to get walking some more too. Running out of time! I am not doing the Amazon extension like you guys - what an adventure!

Crete good but new boots meant lots of blisters. Hope they're worn in now.............

Hi

Don't know if anyone else is staying at Heathrow the night before we travel. If you are and fancy meeting up for a drink on the Friday evening let me know. I'm staying at the Holiday Inn - Ariel (on Bath Road).

Hi there,

I'm actually going to be staying with my brother who lives not far from Heathrow which is a shame as it would have been nice to meet before we all depart! Maybe we could meet in the morning if our timings are roughly the same?

Not sure if you've seen the blog posts from Nicky who is the Reservations Manager, she just recently came back from the Inca Trail and Amazon Extension. Just reading it has made me very excited. Six weeks to go!

Just read the blog now - makes it all seem more real somehow.

My flight is around 9.15 so won't get to the airport until about 6.30am - I think you'll be gone by then and I doubt if I'll get to the hotel in Lima before midnight - will meet everyone for breakfast!

Hi both.

I think I am on the same flight as you Fran. 6.20 from Heathrow? I would love to meet before we board.

Sorry Bob - I'm not staying at Heathrow either. Looking forward to meeting you at breakfast though.

Hannah,

Yes would be great to meet you before we board the flight, and also to meet up with in Madrid when we change!

My mobile is 07941 683778 - maybe we can meet somewhere in the departure lounge?

So excited........although having a bit of a panic about what to take!

Hi Fran.

Sounds like a plan. Will definitely be good to meet before we board and while we transfer at Madrid. I'll text you a few days before hand so you have my number too.

I'm exactly the same as you - have no idea what to bring with me. I was literally just making a list. The only thing on it so far is "walking boots". So don't worry.

Very very excited to meet everyone. Can't believe how fast time has gone.
