Celebrating Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year

From enormous ornate dragons soaring above city streets, to twinkling amber lanterns drifting through the inky night sky, Chinese New Year is one of the most recognisable celebrations on the planet. Red is the colour of the season, symbolising happiness, wealth and prosperity. Luxurious crimson banners adorn houses and beautiful red cash filled envelopes are handed to relatives. The lunisolar New Year is the longest festival in the Chinese calendar and 2018 marks the Year of the Dog.

Types of Holiday to parkrun On

One of the most exciting aspects of parkrun tourism is the chance to see a new place – the variety of courses is part of the appeal. Is it hillier than most and therefore a challenge? Is it cross-country or tarmac? And of course, is there a café nearby…

If you’re looking to take your parkrun scenery to the next level, we have the solution: go global! You can join the parkrun family all over the world, and what’s more, it’s easy to combine with an Exodus adventure. So it’s the community spirit you love, but in a far-flung destination. 

Better pack your running trainers.

A self-drive tailor made family trip to Namibia

Home to some of the highest sand dunes in the world, the most eminent image of the Namib desert is sloping orange ridges set against a turquoise sky. Last December, Exodus traveller and fine art portrait photographer Syarifah McDonough went on an Exodus self-drive tailormade trip to Namibia. She explored this sensational landscape with her two children, and they loved it! From crossing the Tropic of Capricorn to getting up close and personal with a leopard, we asked her what made this trip so special for her family.
