Hi Jan. How nice to hear that you will be travelling down from Manchester on the same flight, and we must meet up at Mcr Airport. We can go through Heathrow together too, and then hopefully meet the others there for a coffee and to say hello. Juliette

Hi everyone. Great that there are a few of us in contact already! I'm happy to swap mobi numbers (perhaps through admin?) so that we can all find eachother at Heathrow. Re anti malaria tablets, I initially went to my GP who issued a private prescription. The pharmacy wanted £43 for 12 tablets. However a wee bit of research revealed that Asda is indeed much cheaper so I'll be popping along there.

Hi everyone was wondering if any of you have had the rabies vaccination. Am unsure as my doctor said it’s not necessary it’s just on the list of extra ones you can have. The same advice was given at the travel clinic. Am up to date with all the others but am so uncertain about this one as it’s a three week course. Was just advised not to pet dogs or cats as they are the worst carriers. Any thoughts please.

Hi Lynne I've been to all sorts of out of the way places & never opted for that one. I always keep away from animals as you've been advised. It's obviously an personal decision & would be interesting to hear what others think.

Thank you Helen on the prompt feedback regarding the rabies jabs. I don’t think I’ll bother with the vaccination I’ll just be careful around animals as you are.

Lynne, Helen, Jean and Jan. This is about exchanging mobile numbers prior to our departure, which is 5 weeks today! I contacted Riviera to ask if they could please swap our mobile numbers privately, rather than us put our numbers on the site.
I have had this helpful reply back from Riviera:
"Hi Juliette - no problem - please email us at forum@rivieratravel.co.uk with your contact details and confirm you are happy for us to share those with anyone else contacting us from the same tour and we can get that sorted for you"
I am going to email Riviera with my mobile number and request them to pass it to the 4 of you, and perhaps you can all do the same too?
Looking forward to meeting everyone. Juliette
