the Lens – Jargon Busting
The first thing
we all do as soon as we get back from our holidays is going
through our photographs. Often however, we look at them with
disappointment, and it is not rare to say “This picture
really doesn’t do the country justice. It’s much
better in reality!” If you're looking for some professional
advice on how to improve your photography, make sure you read

Great Treks to do before you die – Fitzroy
If you're after spectacular
mountain scenery combined with wildlife and remoteness, then
it doesn’t get much better than our Fitzroy
& Paine trek. Patagonia, the most southerly region of

– Back on trek
“Everything I’d heard
about Nepal was positive; the food is great, the scenery amazing,
the people are so friendly. Could it really be that good? The
simple answer is YES! After months of excitable planning I was
worried it wouldn’t live up to my expectations, but I
needn’t have been.”
Hannah Wood, from
our Asia Product Team, gives her impressions of Nepal.
memoirs – India’s GSOH
When Dan Jackson,
UK Agency Sales Manager, came back from his holiday
in India, his first comments were: “I think "GSOH",
the ubiquitous acronym to be found in the lonely hearts columns
(I only read them for a giggle…) should be stamped over
all Exodus Trip Notes for itineraries to India. >>>
– Taking it easy at the Cortijo
Not everybody likes full on holidays.
For some people a relaxing few days by a swimming pool, combined
with gentle walks through the olive groves in the sun-blessed
region of Andalucia is the ultimate break, as Ben Colbridge,
Exodus Travel Consultant, discovers. >>>
of the month – James Cook
On 27 October 1728 Captain
James Cook, the explorer, navigator and cartographer,
was born. He initially trained to be a greengrocer however,
a brief encounter with John and Henry Walker meant he was taken
on as a merchant navy apprentice on their small fleet of vessels
plying coal along the English coast. He soon progressed through
the merchant navy ranks, until in 1755 he was offered command
of a vessel. But within the month he volunteered for service
in the Royal Navy. >>>
Tourism – Peru Kiya Survivor Centre
Hundreds of thousands of people
travel to Peru
every year to discover the splendours of Machu Picchu and the
ancient Inca kingdom. Far fewer people visit the Rainbow Centre
in Urubamba, the first school dedicated to special-needs children.
At Exodus, we have supported the centre for many years and this
year we had one more reason to keep up the good work.
