    Has anyone had the experience of an Eco lodge on their travels. I am planning a trip to the sun in the Caribbean and thought that may be a nice idea, If you want to travel to the Sun let me know. I found some islands are very economical. Feb.

    I am currently in Mexico and have been here for several weeks now. It is an amazing country and I am just finishing a week of language school in Oaxaca before heading to the coast to see the sea turtles nesting. Should be in Mexico City soon and flights there can be quite reasonable. Please feel free to get in touch if you enjoy budget travel in exciting countries.

    I need some sun, so I am planning to travel to the Caribbean middle February. If someone wants to travel to the sun, it would be great. There are good airline deals at the moment and I have been offered a villa o stay.

      Possibly interested but need some more info before deciding e.g. agenda. Feb is also better for me, as it's after pay day.

    Mexico - Yucatan is a very good place to go to, even on your own. There is a lot to do and getting around is very easy and safe, too. Just thought I'd let you guys know.

      hiya, private messages get delivered to your email account that is linked with your meetup account. copies of all other messages that you are involved in are usually emailed to you too. So check your emails

    anyone want to meet earlier to decide on a trip? e.g. Plan for New Year & celebrate it on a beach in Morocco. Lots of adventure travel...
    Otherwise flights are more expensive to book last min.

    Mirjam what dates are you planning on?

    November 18, 2012

    • Rekha

      Thanks have you found any holidays or are you going free style and flying there and doing your own thing

      November 19, 2012

    • Mirjam

      Rekha I'm now doing my own thing. I had a look at a few tours but they were either different times or too expensive.

      November 20, 2012

  • Mazzie

    For goodness sake! Why am I receiving everyone's messages? Why is everyone suggesting their own plans? If there is an organiser either adhere to "their" plans & don't make up your own. There should be one organiser - not a free for all!

    Talks abt Morrocco. I am going to Marrakesh on 29/12 to celebrate New Years, then beach for 7-10 days.

    Anyone wants to plan a sunny & warm winter break? :)

      Hi Pauline, I have a great trip in mind for Morocco. Have been before and had a great time! Would you like me to send you the details?

      November 4, 2012

    • Pauline

      Nicole, Morocco is a cheap country when you get there. Flights during hols. are attheir highest and that is how airlines make money. You can still get deals if you are flexible w. dates, check EZ.

      November 4, 2012

    Anyone up for a fab break to Morocco in Dec or next March/ Apr?

    Hello Everybody,

    We just had a late cancellation on 4 of our guests for our Christmas Market Tour in Switzerland and Germany on November 30- December 8. We are offering those spots out at a discounted price to the meetup groups we belong to and it is a great deal!! It is over $400 USD dollars off the listed tour price making it only £1220 GBP for our 9 day tour which covers pretty much everything for you. At this price these spots will fill up really fast and I will be sending in the hotel rooming list this week so if you are interested just send me an email ASAP!! Cheers,

    Hi. I would be so grateful- as would many others as per comments, if those who are inviting us to join them on their booked christmas holiday either create it as a seperate meetupor make themselve an organiser and amend the details above, so info is as clear as possible.

      People are making suggestions about what their doing and you could join whoever. I think it's risky booking for other people, in case they change their mind.

    Is anyone up to join me London-Lanzarote-London for 80 pounds on 13-18 December? Additionally, it will be[masked] pounds for accomodation for 5 nights. I have just bought my tickets!

    October 10, 2012

    We need to all make a decision and stick with it otherwise this trip is not gonna happen. Perhaps a meet up would be good?

    Hey, what a change!! I'm going with some friends to Marrakesh for New Years - I got tkts from Opodo (or Edreams?) to get there on the 30th Dec, back on the 3rd Jan; hotels to be booked soon. Anyway enjoy Mexico and if anyone wants to catch up in Morrocco I can keep u updated. Ciao!

  • Mazzie

    Trouble in Egypt right up to North Africa so I'm not brave enough to go to this destination. However, if alternative destinations away from troublespots will go:)

    September 14, 2012

  • Mirjam

    I'm sure you've seen the news. :( would it still be safe to go? The foreign office says only "necessary travel" to certain areas. Darn!

    September 14, 2012

  • Mark

    Howdy all! Would one of you be kind enough to tell me what's happening on this trip? I'm putting my hand up but just need to know if its not too late...alternatively if there are trips as an offshoot from this, then do tell.

    September 9, 2012

    • Mirjam

      I'll compile more info this weekend and can share next week. we'd better get our act together or prices will go up. how about meeting one eve next week? central london I assume would be the best for everyone?

      September 12, 2012

    • Mirjam

      Another idea is to start what I said together and people who haven't seen the pyramids yet can dso that at the end while other go to the beach or so. you guys could also do it in the beginning, depending on when everyone flies in.

      September 12, 2012

  • Mirjam

    My plans have changed and I've done some research. I now want to go Dec 22- Jan 1 and Egypt. I've been to the Cairo Pyramids so would like to visit the white desert (2-3 day safari), luxor and aswan and if there is time, wouldn't mind going to the beach for 2 days as well. They have some good private tours to the white desert but one has to be at least 2 people, of course. I haven't found an operator yet who can get me to those places without the pyramids and cairo but have to do some more research. Would anyone like to join me on this if the group ends up doing something differen? meeting up would be good to discuss what we have found out and what would work.

    September 11, 2012

    • Mark

      Hey Mirjam..that information you've compiled sounds great for now.

      September 11, 2012

    • Mark

      Could the rest of the group that would like to do Egypt and something along what Mirjam's planned out, please respond to Mirjam's comment?

      I'll do my research too. A good idea would be to agree on a date to meet up soon to bounce ideas around. I work in the City, meeting up in the centre should be good.

      September 11, 2012

  • Mirjam

    cairo flights I found are around £[masked], the white desert private tours around 400$ and cheaper the more people go.

    September 11, 2012

    is there enough people to be two groups then, leaving on differnt dates? Who else is intersted in leaving from the 22nd dec?

    Thomas cook have all inclusive to sharm el sheikh for £408 - for 7 nights going on the 17th december

    August 10, 2012

    • moira

      sharm el sheikh sounds good, from what I understand there are day trips plane / bus to Cairo to see the Pyramids , the Sphinx ,as I would defo want to see them. Is it alot more to leave a bit later 22nd? I cant go eailer than that:(

      August 14, 2012

      to go on the 22nd from london is around 680!!, there are flights from newcastle at 530!!!are

    Do not take the cruise trip with Thomas Cook in Egypt. They have really good tour guides. Very recommended... but their cruise ship just stinks !

    Mirjam I can go on your dates to morocco! I've also found a travel site with great shortbreak travel deals, Morocco included

    August 13, 2012

      Hi Maz what deals have you seen? I dont mind a short break or something a bit longer.

      August 13, 2012

  • Mirjam

    I would like to do a Marocco sightseeing trip 22.-26.12. as I can't take any more time off. But if you're saying that the Suc is closed, is Marocco still an option? Would anyone know about the other cities one can visit, what they're like at this time of year? I'm also interested in Oman, self drive, if anyone fancies that?

    August 13, 2012

  • moira

    Are there any good deals for a bit later from, the 22nd of december? I am a teacher so cant go any earlier than that.

    Hiya! I also wd like to go later, preferably closer to New Year's. I prefer Morocco, but wd go to Egypt if the majority prefers it. I noticed that so far this list has much + women than men what can be trick in Morocco I guess + than in Egypt. On the weekend I'll have a look at flights - any suggestion where to get good deals or the old Skyscanner?

    August 2, 2012

  • Mazzie

    would someone please come up with dates so we can book time off?

    August 1, 2012

  • Mirjam

    I'm interested in Marocco. Know friends who've gone and loved it. As I'm a blonde woman I can't go on my own because they can be quite aggressive there. So a group trip would be great.

    August 1, 2012

    Me to would love to go to Morocoo, depending on dates and prices. I would need to no soon thou as need to book time off work, Thank you.
