Hi All
I'm a newbie to solo travelling and have taken the plunge and booked the March tour to India & Shimla.
Have any fellow travelers booked too?
Anyone already been?
Very excited already.
Thanks in advance.

Hi Jazzy
That's great. Wow that'll be amazing to walk on your fathers footsteps.
Have you been on any previous solo trips?

I’ve just booked this one too! I was really undecided for a while because I am not a good flyer (I was once, used to love it). So, I’m doing it anyway. Worse than flying would be looking back in 30-40 years or so and regretting that I didn’t do anything or go anywhere. I’m doing a British Airways flying confidence course next month. It has super reviews so I fully expect to be piloting the aeroplane in March :)

Happy to chat Jane and Jazzy, on here or somewhere, and share sneak peaks at where we will be going and our hotels and stuff. Anyone else?

I’m in the UK, Dorset. I’m 52. I have been on holiday by myself before, but I’m a bit of a scaredy cat so Riviera’s Solo Tours look like jus the thing for me.

Hi

I have booked for March as well - really looking forward to this trip as been wanting to go to India for a long time. First time travelling solo so would be good to meet up or chat before we leave.
At least there are 4 of us now - dont worry about flying Daisy we will be there to hold your hand, if necessary, and at least we are flying overnight so perhaps a sleep will help to pass the time?
Hope to be able to speak soon, or perhaps arrange to meet at the airport.

If not have a great Christmas

Meg

Hi Meg & Daisy
Great to see another two travellers. Getting close now, very exciting.
Does anyone know if we check in ourselves or if riviera check us in? Looking forward to meeting everyone.

Hi Everyone

Hope you all had good Christmas and New Year.
Janelw, from what I can see we all get checked in together, there should be a tour manager at the airport to greet us and hopefully that will help with the introductions. Just planning my visit to the doctors for inoculations and sorting out visa. As you say getting closer now!!

Hi Meg, thanks so much for your kind words. I didn't know this thread updated and thought I'd "subscribed" to it so that I'd get a message saying there's a new post. Never mind.

Does anyone think we (4 so far) should set up a chat somewhere. I'd be happy to do that. Post details here? Do you think Riviera would mind?

It is getting exciting. What an adventure! I have also been considering the vaccinations we need. I've got my insurance sorted. I am not sure where my suitcase is - I might start setting things out in the spare room. Not too soon is it! :)

Hi Daisy, that’s fine - we would ask that you don’t post personal details here (for your own security).

But we are happy to help in any way we can?

Hi Everyone
Maybe Riviera travel will pass on our email addresses to each other?
Would be easier to chat there or perhaps on facebook?
How did the course with BA go, hope its stopped some of your fears Daisy?
Hope to chat with you soon
Meg
