Mark has been a journalist ever since being sucked into the rat race in 1991, but a three-year trip exploring a surprisingly small amount of the world in the mid-1990s changed his perspective of the career ladder forever. Since then he has published over 750 travel articles, walked from one end of Britain to the other (and written a book about it), walked the entire length of the London Underground (and written a smartphone app about it), and decided that there is more to life than washing the car at weekends. He is currently dreaming of his next big trip, just for a change.
