Hey Cat
are you traveling on your own? Where are you from?
I am actually leaving for Africa in 2 weeks. I will be traveling in South Africa before I go on the trip with you. Do you have any other travel plans as well? I am soooo excited!

Hi,

Yep I'm travelling on my own, from the UK. Unfortunately was only able to get 3 weeks off work so I'm just doing this trip, can't wait though!

Wow so you're off in two weeks, that is exciting. Are you continuing travelling after our trip also?

Hey Cat
Yeah I will be going on a long journey. I start on August 10th in South Africa and I will travel until October 26th. So a bit over 2 and a half months. I quit my job (primary teacher) and the next job doesn't start until Januar 2014, so I decided to travel a bit :-)
I also want to stay another night in Livingstone before leaving for Zanzibar but I havent booked anything after the tour yet, except the flight to Zanzibar the next day! Will you arrive or leave a day earlier/later than the tour starts/ends?
May I ask how old you are? I am 27 years old. Have you done a G-Adventure trip before? I have never done a trip with Gadventures but a friend of mine has and liked it very much! I have only travelled on a trip thats similar organized once, in Venezuela. So I am reeeeeaaaalllly excited.
RIght now I m having a packing crisis.. it's hard to decide what to pack for almost 3 months if I am only allowed to take 15kg (including hand luggage) due to some airlines I use before our trip. I also need to bring my winter cloths with me, since I m planning on going on a Kilimanjaro trek afterwards... and that winter stuff is very heavy. oh well...
cant wait to meet you!
greetings from the alps, where i spend my weekend right now.

Hiya,

Wow that sounds like an amazing trip!

I'm arriving at midday 8th September and leaving at midday 28th, sadly I've got to be back at work 30th September!

I'm 30yrs old, I've done a G-Adventure trip about 3 years ago. I did Everest Base Camp which was absolutely brilliant, absolutely loved it. My sister has done a few trips with them also and she has really enjoyed them so fingers crossed!

I don't envy you having to decide what to take for that length of time!

Good luck with the packing! :)

Not sure how to pack for wp years when I need both summer and winter cloths, it sure will be fun trying

Hello all!! I'm Jessie. Traveling alone. I'm so excited!

Is anyone coming in CPT on the 7th at 10:55 pm?

Anyone want to tour Cape Town together on the 8th? I'm doing a shark diving trip that morning and will be done at noon. I'd like to see a few attractions in Cape Town.

Hope so!!

Excited to meet you all!

Jessica Rushing.

Hi Jessie,

I get into Cape Town at 1pm on 8th Sept, would love someone to explore with that afternoon but guessing I won't get to the hotel until 2pmish so you'll probably be out and about by then.

Looking forward to the trip and meeting everyone, only 1 week of work to go!
