ATTE130409: Thailand Experience (ATNE130409 & ATTW130420)

Postby tommaule » Sat Jan 26, 2013 6:39 am

Hello all!

I have just booked onto the Thailand Experience for 9th April 2013, which combines the Northern Thailand Experience (9th April to 20th April) and Thailand Island Hopping (20th April to 28th April) trips. I'd be interested to meet any of you who are on either of these trips, or on the combined trip like myself.

I'm Tom, 26 years old, from Crawley (near London Gatwick Airport), UK. This will be my first travelling adventure, and I'm doing it solo! Looking forward to meeting lots of new people and experiencing everything that Thailand has to offer - I've heard its a country like no other!

So do get in touch if our paths will cross on this trip, or if you are considering booking onto this trip... I'm happy to share my flight details too (from London Gatwick) should you want a plane buddy!

Tom.

Hi Tom,

I think I'm on the same trip - Thailand on a Shoestring? Are you arriving as the tour starts or before? I'm coming in from Hong Kong so have a couple of days in Bangkok before the tour begins. I'm 21, from London and also a solo traveller.

Looking forward to meeting everyone, not long now!

Hi Izzy,

My trip is called 'Thailand Experience' (http://www.gadventures.co.uk/trips/thai ... ATTE/2013/) starting in Bangkok on 9th April. Sounds like you might be on a different trip to me then? Not sure if our paths will cross anyway though... what date does your tour start?

Send me a message if you'd like my fb or like to chat.

Hi Tom,

Unfortunately you're right, it is a different tour. Mine starts on the 13th April from Bangkok but does a similar route. I think I will be one step behind you the whole way!

Hi Tom,

My name is Charlotte, i'm 27, and live up in the North :D I'm travelling on my own, so getting a bit scarred about it all now! haha.

I will be on the Northern Thailand trip starting 9th April and getting back to bangkok 20th April..then I assume you carry on South, is that right? Looks like my flights are different, mine go from Heathrow and stop off is Abu Dhabi. I have booked accomidation for the full moon party, staying on Ko Samui and just getting the boat across.

Hi Charlotte,

Looking forward to meeting you! I'm sure it all seems far scarier now than it will when we're actually there - that's what I'm hoping for anyway! :-) I'm getting really excited now, partly just to be able to escape this horrible cold weather!

I should get to the starting hotel by about 2pm on the 9th, ping me an IM if you want my contact details should you want someone to start exploring Bangkok with on that afternoon :-)

You're right about my trip continuing South on 20th. So how long are you actually in Thailand for? Full Moon is on the 25th right?
