We’ve all been there. It’s the start of the year and you know that you want to go on holiday at some point in the next 12 months. But when and where?!
If you’re in a full-time job (and want to keep it) your options are traditionally very limited. You’ve only got a set number of holidays for the year and then there’s the question of who to go with.
Unless you’ve got a partner, you’re looking at going with a random mate or on your own – a prospect which certainly sounds nerve racking – but can actually be pretty exhilarating at the same time.
Step in Exodus, who asked 1,000 people in their 30s and 40s what they want from their trips abroad. 60% said they want to travel with people who are a similar age to them and 70% said they wanted to maximise their annual leave by taking fewer, shorter trips away each year.
So, they created ‘Exodus Edits’ – epic trips abroad to some of the most exotic locations on the globe that are compact enough to fit into your annual leave but jam-packed enough to fit all of the best bits in there.
What’s more – if you’re on your own, fear not – you can share your travelling with others and perhaps make some new mates while you’re at it.
Exodus Edits consists of 22 itineraries, spanning 18 countries, and ranging from 4 to 13 days – all suitable for people in their 30’s and 40’s and all positioned to get the most out of a destination in a short space of time. Here are just some of the trips they offer…
