Hello I'm Mark and welcome to my personal blog.

I travel a lot both for business and pleasure, often on my own but also with my family whenever I can.

I really do enjoy taking photos when I travel but would still consider myself a traveller first and a photographer second

I suppose you could think of this as a travel blog but it's more than that. It's really a place for me to share my experiences and thoughts on just about anything.

Considering I work in IT and telecommunications I have an unhealthy interest in technology and gadgets and all things tech related. I also like my cars so expect plenty on non travel stuff to be included as well.

So the words are my own (not my employers) so have a look around and please feel free to leave a comment or Two
