Global Travel & Adventure Travel Specialist
My passion is traveling. I especially love exploring new destinations, making friends with the locals and immersing myself into a region's culture because I've often found that it is the road less traveled that leads to the most fulfilling encounters and experiences.
Another passion of mine is helping my clients to put aside their fears so that they, too, can discover all that a destination has to offer. It brings me great joy to show them the possibilities that exist outside of the confines of a pre-packaged tour.
I have my parents to thank for my love of travel. Every year, they saved up money via a vacation club bank account to ensure that our family could enjoy a week-long trip. As a result, by the time I was a teenager, I had been to more than 40 of the 50 states and had also spent a memorable week in Monterrey, Mexico. Today, Mexico is one of my favorite destinations to book.
Other destinations I enjoy booking for my clients include:
- The Caribbean — One of the reasons I love booking both the Caribbean and Mexico is because I am a retired marine biologist and avid scuba diver. Are you interested in diving, as well? Then, please, allow me to use my expertise to book the dive vacation of your dreams.
- Europe — I have traveled throughout much of western Europe via just about every mode of transportation available, including by car, ferry, train and air.
In fact, in July 2017, I spent an entire month exploring a number of countries in Europe. My journey took me through some of Europe's finest destinations, including but not limited to London, Amsterdam, Paris and Barcelona. My wife and I also spiced up our travels with numerous interesting adventures, including bike riding through Giverny to visit Monet's gardens and watching the Tour de France. Because of my many personal experiences — and my 15+ years as a travel blogger — I'm able to recommend unique activities and excursions to include in the itinerary that I will custom design to your specifications.
Are you interested in learning more about the personalized itineraries that I can create for you? Then please contact me at your earliest convenience. I would love to design an experience for you that will not only respects your budget but will also make your travel dreams come true.

"Mark is an awesome travel adviser. He booked the best trip to Athens, Greece for me and my two girlfriends. The trip Mark planned for us was by far the easiest and most convenient. Our accommodations were nice and clean, and we felt very safe. Mark even picked us up at 4:00 a.m. and drove us 95 miles to the airport to see us off. Thanks for planning our vacation Mark!"
