Hello. I'm booked on this tour, and I understand that the tour is full with 25 guests. I'm interested in seeing if anyone wants to meet up at Heathrow whilst we wait for the flight.

Hello Viola! I'm booked on this tour. I'm travelling down from Glasgow. My flight arrives at Heathrow T5 at 15.45. I'm not sure if I need to collect my luggage and check in again, or if it will be checked right through. But I'd be happy to meet you in T2 whilst we hang about for our flight.

Hello Viola and Jean. I too am on this tour and would be happy to meet up. We can make arrangements nearer the time as to the best place to meet. Not long now!

Hello Viola, Jean & Lynne ! I am on this tour, good to know we have a full complement of travellers. I am really looking forward to what I'm sure will be a wonderful trip & would like to meet up @ Heathrow if possible. I will be coming from Hertfordshire. X

Hello Jean, Lynne, and Helen. So pleased to hear from you. I understand that the tour has 25 customers, with 22 arriving at Heathrow, and 3 from Glasgow, Newcastle and Manchester. Jean is flying from Glasgow. I am flying from Manchester on BA, flight lands at T5 at 15.05, so I arrive before Jean. Then I have to get to T2 by bus.
It would be nice to meet up in T2 for a coffee and to say hello. Perhaps nearer the time we can swap mobile numbers? It is exciting, I have never been to SA before. 6 weeks next Wednesday. My name is Juliette, I chose Viola as my user name. Best wishes

Helen, thanks. I had my vaccinations last week, and need to get my anti-malarial tablets, which I have never taken before. I am looking forward to this trip. Will be nice to meet up at Heathrow, as I was told that we might not all be sitting together as a group on the flight, so it would then be hard to spot other Riviera solo travellers. Juliette x

Hello everyone. Have enquiried and the cheapest anti malarial tablets can be obtained from Asda in store pharmacies. You don’t need a doctors prescription anymore but the pharmacist needs to do a consultation. Hope this is helpful.
You are not guaranteed to be sat together on the flight and in past singles holidays I have been on this has been the case. Hence it is lovely to meet up and get to know people before the flight. Excitement is building now!
I will be travelling down from Yorkshire by train on the day and look forward to meeting you all.

Hi, I too am travelling from Yorkshire, via BA Manchester airport. I land at 15.05 too Juliette. Maybe we can meet up there? Then meet with the others in T2 at Heathrow.

I am so excited about this, only 5 weeks on Wednesday.
