The Matterhorn is one of the most easily recognised mountains in the world, sticking out above the surrounding peaks like a giant, jagged fang.

About David
  • Web Sales
  • Joined 2005

David once bought a one way ticket to Mumbai and a year later found himself in Beijing via 5 legged cows, moped crashes and a hitch with a wanted criminal. Along the way he met rock stars, international footballers and loads of monks. Nowadays, if he’s not at his Sales desk, he can be found on the top of mountains or cross-country skiing in one of the many great destinations Exodus offers. He’s hurtled out of control on skis into a tree, bagged Kilimanjaro and Toubkal, done the Moonstone Trek and most recently completed the Mont Blanc Circuit.
