Always wanted to do Vesuvius and explore this historic island. I'll do some research on flights and get back to you.

lis   on 03/02/17 @ 18:22 said:

Hi this would be my first meet up with the group. But have always wanted to visit this area. As im travelling from the North (preston area) i will need to check flights and get back to you. Here's hoping. Pam

Lazlo Woodbine   on 04/02/17 @ 20:16 said:

Note ? means pounds.

Sukie Q   on 04/02/17 @ 22:34 said:

Hi Doug,OK with sharing.

Maz   on 05/02/17 @ 9:48 said:

Flights with Monarch look good from Manchester so interested.

LaurieC   on 05/02/17 @ 12:20 said:

That's me committed (to the holiday). Really looking forward to this. As soon as the dates are confirmed I'll book my flights from Manchester

Lazlo Woodbine   on 05/02/17 @ 20:30 said:

For those thinking of flying from Manchester, just checked the Monarch site and they say they only have 3 seats at the lowest price for the out going flight so book ASAP for the best savings.

I am flying Eastjet from Stansted 12.50 and returning Ryanair 13.10. A bit more than the minimum but at least civilised times.

Lazlo Woodbine   on 05/02/17 @ 21:42 said:

Easy jet flights just increased in price by 6 pounds between me checking the price and me going to book.

LaurieC   on 05/02/17 @ 22:51 said:

Flights booked from Manchester!! Can't wait

Lazlo Woodbine   on 05/02/17 @ 23:38 said:

Booked as well, the price went up this evening.

pamclm   on 06/02/17 @ 18:13 said:

Ive booked monarch flights from Manchester. Few seats left! Look forward to seeing everyone for a great hol! Pam

pamclm   on 06/02/17 @ 18:32 said:

Hi lazlo. I have just booked on monarch flights Manchester return. Very few seats left. I would prefer single room if its available, if not twin? Please update me with details when you can. Looking forward to meeting up with everyone for what sounds a great holiday. Pam

Happy Hiker10   on 06/02/17 @ 19:41 said:

Well I hope your all still going, I've booked my flight! �� �� erm now what do I do.
Am I able to ask for a single room???
Gail ��

This is exciting!!

Lazlo Woodbine   on 06/02/17 @ 19:53 said:

You can ask for a single room, happy hiker, it is first come first served. I have reserved the rooms so nothing to pay until September. I will then ask you for the money as we can better exchange rate if we pay as a group rather than individually. The room price is dependent on the exchange rate. The prices quoted where based on the exchange rate on Saturday. I will keep you posted with developments.

Happy Hiker10   on 06/02/17 @ 20:27 said:

Thank you

Carpe Diem!   on 06/02/17 @ 21:56 said:

Monarch flights booked to and from Manchester!!!

Rural Lass?   on 06/02/17 @ 22:11 said:

Booked my Monarch flights from Manchester.

LaurieC   on 06/02/17 @ 23:40 said:

Carp Diem, Rural Lass?, Happy Hiker10 - I'll get the first drinks at Manchester departures . It's going to be a lot of fun

LaurieC   on 06/02/17 @ 23:42 said:

pamclm - I forgot to include you in the drinks invitation - G&T is it?

Lazlo Woodbine   on 07/02/17 @ 0:00 said:

I love clouds. pamcim has first refusal on the single room. If it is important I can reserve a single room in a nearby hotel. Depending on final numbers and gebder mix I may have to book another hotel.

Lazlo Woodbine   on 07/02/17 @ 0:01 said:

Sorry I meant Happy Hiker, not I love clouds.

Sukie Q   on 07/02/17 @ 10:30 said:

Yey booked on flights to and from Stansted!Really looking forward to this.

Carpe Diem!   on 07/02/17 @ 10:46 said:

ILoveClouds: cheers Laurie! Yep it's gonna be very good...

Indiana Jane   on 07/02/17 @ 22:28 said:

I've just booked the flight on Monarch from Manchester, going out on the Wednesday but I'm going to stay a full week so back on Wed 27th. I'll sort out other accommodation for the extra couple of nights.

Lazlo Woodbine   on 07/02/17 @ 22:49 said:

Wecome Indiana Jane, your knowledge of archaeology will mean we don't need to hire a guide at Pompeii. Not that I was going to but it is always good to have some expertise around.

Glyn2   on 08/02/17 @ 22:38 said:

Flights booked - Monarch from Manchester

Glyn2   on 08/02/17 @ 22:40 said:

Forgot to say I don't mind sharing (with one or two of the girls obviously!) think I snore though . . . .

Lazlo Woodbine   on 08/02/17 @ 22:53 said:

Welcome aboard Rhian, glad I have the extra rooms reserved.Going to be tricky with the permutations. All I can say at the moment is that pam and happy hiker have first refusal for the single rooms.

RuthieA   on 09/02/17 @ 17:56 said:

Flights booked from Manchester and like Indiana Jane also staying till 27th. Don't mind sharing and I definately snore!!

Lazlo Woodbine   on 09/02/17 @ 21:44 said:

Welcome aboard Ruthie. Have to make some more changes now. I will try and put you in with the other 7 dayers and extend the booking for that room.

gs59   on 16/02/17 @ 7:43 said:

Can I register an interest on going on this trip...what is the flight people are getting from Manchester so I can book that one today...prefer a single room but realise I'm one of the last ones to join so if non available will share

RuthieA   on 16/02/17 @ 8:14 said:

Hi gs59. I have booked on the Monarch flight @7am on 20th. I presume anyone flying from Manchester is on that flight?

Lazlo Woodbine   on 16/02/17 @ 12:07 said:

gs59. no single rooms available but I could reserve a double room in one of the hotels which of course would be more expensive. Alternatively I could find another close by hotel. Tell me if you really want one.

gs59   on 16/02/17 @ 13:39 said:

Hi Ruthie thanks for that information about the flights.
Lazlo I will go with the flow whatevers easier for you as you have taken the time to arrange this trip. If you know the price of a double room for one person please let me know and then I will be able to make a decision

Thanks Gerry

Lazlo Woodbine   on 16/02/17 @ 15:01 said:

I have checked, a double room for single occupation at the hotel where most of us are booked, VesuView, is ?234. There is a hotel almost next door to this one with a single room for around ?180. The alternative is you share a room in the VesuView.

gs59   on 16/02/17 @ 16:30 said:

Hi Lazlo

Can you book me in for the double room please at VesuView

Many thanks Gerry

Lazlo Woodbine   on 16/02/17 @ 17:10 said:

OK will do.

Lazlo Woodbine   on 16/02/17 @ 17:16 said:

Room reserved.

catwalker   on 17/02/17 @ 22:38 said:

I'm interested LW, though flying from the south. Is there space?

Lazlo Woodbine   on 17/02/17 @ 23:50 said:

Yes still space cat walker. Flights from Luton and Stansted would be your closest.

catwalker   on 18/02/17 @ 8:52 said:

Flights booked from Stansted. Can I join you in main hotel please? I've booked for a week but will book extra nights myself. Thanks

catwalker   on 18/02/17 @ 8:59 said:

Prefer single occupation if still possible

Lazlo Woodbine   on 18/02/17 @ 20:51 said:

Hi Catwalker and welcome to the adventurers. No single rooms in the main hotel VesuView, or the overspill hotel, Family, left. There maybe a double room vacant but it would be a bit more expensive. I will check and reserve one for you. Which Stansted flight are you on. Suki and me are flying out Reasyjet and back by Ryan Air because they are daytime flights.

catwalker   on 18/02/17 @ 22:21 said:

Thanks for checking for me Lazlo, much appreciated!
Ditto re the flights. I'll message you with my flight times, great stuff!

Ridgewalker   on 19/02/17 @ 0:47 said:

Flights now booked from Manchester... See you all there. or on various other adventures before Sept. next adventure in between (Elan Valley MTB preparations ) Black Mountains from the soulful arches of Llanthony Priory... Keep shining peoples

suz (Suzanne)   on 23/02/17 @ 19:21 said:

about to book flights. happy to share room if there is one?

Lazlo Woodbine   on 23/02/17 @ 21:50 said:

Yes Suzanne, still room. I will allocate rooms etc when we are full.

Lazlo Woodbine   on 23/02/17 @ 21:51 said:

Are you flying from Stansted?

catwalker   on 23/02/17 @ 21:57 said:

It'll be good to share it with you Suz (and a room if that works out)

Lazlo Woodbine   on 23/02/17 @ 22:24 said:

That would be great for me allocating rooms as well Cat. Unfortunately the bigger hotels are quite expensive so finding reasonably priced accomodation for a large party is quite a challenge.

Lazlo Woodbine   on 24/02/17 @ 12:29 said:

Can people please inform me when they have booked their flights. I need to know as I have several rooms reserved and need to know if they are going to be filled. I am liable for the cost if they are not filled and I don't cancel in time. Thanking you for your co-operation. Fortunately most people have.

catwalker   on 24/02/17 @ 15:31 said:

I have a single room in different hotel as back up in case I don't get preferred option to be in main hotel with you guys, either single occupancy or sharing. Hope it works out ok Lazlo and not too much aggro for you ��

Lazlo Woodbine   on 24/02/17 @ 17:13 said:

Cheers Catwalker. Well I can put you and Suzanne in a room for two. These are actually rooms for three with a single and a double bed. I leave it to the guests to fight it out who gets the big bed. I still have the option of a double room for 1 if the "maybe" doesn't turn in to a "definite". Things will change between now and when we go.

catwalker   on 26/02/17 @ 19:30 said:

Yes, Suz is up for sharing. I'll go ahead and cancel the other hotel booking now. Thanks for helping us with it

suz (Suzanne)   on 27/02/17 @ 12:39 said:

Ok, flights booked. I'm coming back on the Tuesday.

Lazlo Woodbine   on 27/02/17 @ 13:54 said:

You will need an extra nights for a room then Suzanne. I have an idea.

catwalker   on 27/02/17 @ 17:10 said:

I'm coming back on the Wednesday

Lazlo Woodbine   on 27/02/17 @ 17:21 said:

So that is two to find. Never mind I will bottom this out. Best if you and Suzanne keep the room on Monday night and you have a single room Tuesday.

catwalker   on 27/02/17 @ 17:41 said:

Thats a good idea. Sorry for the trouble....promise to behave once I'm there

catwalker   on 27/02/17 @ 17:42 said:

Not sure about Suz though

Carpe Diem!   on 27/02/17 @ 18:49 said:

catwalker: behave??? I very much doubt it ...

catwalker   on 27/02/17 @ 20:13 said:

I do my best

Lazlo Woodbine   on 27/02/17 @ 21:34 said:

I have reserved the room with Cat and Suzanne for Monday 25th night and reserved a single room for Cat tuesday 26th. Hope that is right. I will be sending everyone a message saying what room they are in and the cost tomorrow.

catwalker   on 27/02/17 @ 21:43 said:

That's perfect and really decent of you Lazlo! Happy days ahead for us

suz (Suzanne)   on 28/02/17 @ 12:18 said:

I wasn't planning on behaving being an OD trip 'n all??

Carpe Diem!   on 28/02/17 @ 15:53 said:

suz (Suzanne): ..good!!!

catwalker   on 28/02/17 @ 18:09 said:

oh dear!

suz (Suzanne)   on 01/03/17 @ 9:42 said:

Thanks for sorting this Lazaro!

suz (Suzanne)   on 01/03/17 @ 9:42 said:

suz (Suzanne): Lazlo

Happy Hiker10   on 01/03/17 @ 20:07 said:

Right - just checked - my flights 7am from manchester with monarch. I love clouds - so its gin and tonics at 5am !!!

LaurieC   on 01/03/17 @ 20:31 said:

HH10 - who mentioned alcohol ? I offered to buy first drinks, whatever your preference

Lazlo Woodbine   on 02/03/17 @ 16:41 said:

You might as well choose alcohol, coffee and tea at airports is almost as expensive. There are 11 flying from Manchester (possibly 2 more) so bring along your credit card Ilove.

The Mind is Willing   on 05/03/17 @ 21:49 said:

Hi Doug I have now booked my ticket so I'll see you there if not before!

Lazlo Woodbine   on 05/03/17 @ 23:12 said:

Welcome aboard Claudette. ILoveClouds is going to have an expensive drinks round at Manchester Airport.

Carpe Diem!   on 06/03/17 @ 20:51 said:

He certainly is Doug ...all my family will be there to wave me off and boy can they drink!

Lazlo Woodbine   on 07/03/17 @ 14:17 said:

PLus their friends.

LaurieC   on 07/03/17 @ 17:32 said:

Your drinks will be lined up in the premier departure lounge, ?19 admission mind. I do hope I won't be drinking alone hehe

Carpe Diem!   on 31/03/17 @ 7:17 said:

ILoveClouds: would you like the drinks order in advance? I've worked out that it'll be marginally cheaper for you to buy full bottles

LaurieC   on 31/03/17 @ 9:47 said:

Carpe Diem!: I'll honour any drink request at the time, not bothered about discounts, so looking forward to this holiday.
Just for you CD, I'll throw in a pair of knee pads - might come in useful when you scale Vesuvius

Carpe Diem!   on 31/03/17 @ 14:11 said:

ILoveClouds: Ha Ha...I'll be running up Vesuvious pal, it'll take me back to my hot coal days
Ps the exercise book is filling up nicely with our booze order....

LaurieC   on 20/06/17 @ 23:06 said:

I might rearrange my return flight and stay a few more days, probably hire a car.

Lazlo Woodbine   on 21/06/17 @ 18:22 said:

There are 4 people staying for 7 days. One is doubtful though due to work commitments.

pamclm   on 07/07/17 @ 18:28 said:

Am i still ok for the single room. Thanks. Pam

Lazlo Woodbine   on 07/07/17 @ 20:25 said:

Yes Pam. It only affects one room. I may have to a bit of room shuffling if no one takes up that place. It wont affect you.

Janhk   on 08/07/17 @ 12:13 said:

I may well be interested in the spare place. Can you send me details please >

Lazlo Woodbine   on 11/07/17 @ 18:56 said:

Vesuvius has sprung back to life. Hope it settles down by September.

Lazlo Woodbine   on 12/07/17 @ 12:05 said:

The smoke around Vesuvius was a forest fire. Someone was having me on.

Any, as you may know Maz unfortunately couldn't come along because of work committments but the good news Janhk will be joining us and sharing a room with IndianaJane and Ruthie. I am sure you will offer a warm welcome to Jan.

Carpe Diem!   on 12/07/17 @ 18:20 said:

Lazlo Woodbine: Janhk: welcome Jan!!! Will be good to see you again

Indiana Jane   on 12/08/17 @ 17:52 said:

I've just booked my car into the airport parking. If anyone living near the M56 (west of Manchester Airport) wants me to pick them up and we can share the cost of the carpark then let me know. I'm going on the 7am flight on 20th and returning on the flight getting in at 14.00 on 27th.

Glyn2   on 16/08/17 @ 22:26 said:

I'm flying back on the Monday Indiana Jane otherwise I would've gladly shared the costs with you

Carpe Diem!   on 22/08/17 @ 21:55 said:

Indiana Jane: same for me Jane... I'm home on the Monday too

RuthieA   on 23/08/17 @ 18:53 said:

For anyone staying for 7 nights, myself and Claudette are thinking of doing a day trip to Rome. Its about 10 euros by train, not costed it out fully as yet.If anyone fancies it you are welcome to join us.

Lazlo Woodbine   on 25/08/17 @ 0:21 said:

Ruth, express train every hour from Naples to Rome, 65 minutes journey time. Source Rome2Rio. Bit expensive though.

Ridgewalker   on 28/08/17 @ 10:36 said:

Car park sorted see you all ( Man Flyers ) before sunrise at Manchester T2

Lazlo Woodbine   on 03/09/17 @ 23:14 said:

Those flying out Easyjet can check in now. I am seat 18C.

Lazlo Woodbine   on 05/09/17 @ 21:55 said:

Pam has unfortunately had to cancel. We might be getting one more person though.

LaurieC   on 17/09/17 @ 19:18 said:

I shall be bringing a large sum of money with me on a separate trolley, when I arrive at T2, early Weds morning. For those wishing to see me honour my commitment to greet you with the promise of a alcoholic drink (single shot of any kind) come and find me at the nearest bar to the departures lounge after passing security check-in. For those that don't know me by sight, I'm 6'4" tall. That should do

Ridgewalker   on 17/09/17 @ 21:31 said:

Splendid i think we should be able to find you..

Lazlo Woodbine   on 18/09/17 @ 18:07 said:

Hi everyone, just back from the Portuguese Camino and now ready for the Italian job. Please contact me by tomorrow evening if there is anything you are unsure of. Remember to watch out for pickpockets around crowded stations or on crowded trains. I will bring a circumvesuvius timetabe with me. Have a great journey and I look forward to seeing old and new faces on Wednesday.

Lazlo Woodbine   on 19/09/17 @ 12:19 said:

Weather for Naples looking really good for the next few days. Max temp 23 deg C but will feel hotter in the sun. No rain forecast but take a decent wtareproof with you because if it does rain it tends to bucket it down. Anything shower proof will be worse than useless.

Indiana Jane   on 19/09/17 @ 13:37 said:

Woooooow! Nearly ready to go.

Carpe Diem!   on 19/09/17 @ 19:43 said:

ILoveClouds: I'll just have the cash thanks L... but skint after all the hols this year

Safe journey all. Looking forward to a great trip ��

LaurieC   on 20/09/17 @ 7:01 said:

Can you believe it, Jonathan overslept and had to be woke from his deep sleep by Claudette and Ruth. He's on the plane now but we're all going to have to keep an eye on him in Italy lol

Carpe Diem!   on 20/09/17 @ 7:08 said:

ILoveClouds: I think Claudette gave me the wrong taxi time. Tut! (I was appropriately reprimanded ...Didn't even have time to wash my hair...
