Summary

Role: Consultant

Mark was born in Swakopmund, Namibia and always dreamt of leaving the quiet resort town for the madness and adventure of the world’s great urban centres.  He’s lived in London, New York, Rio de Janeiro, Cape Town and Honolulu, and has travelled extensively around the world.  His vagabond lifestyle had to come to an end some day and he chose to settle down back home in Namibia.  He learned that sometimes the grass really is greener on the other side and plans on investing in some astroturf.

If You Could Only Eat One Food for The Rest of Your Life, What Would It Be?

Pizza… definitely Pizza.

What’s Something Weird That You Recommend Everyone Tries At Least Once?

Fogu.  It doesn’t taste that great; but the thrill of it is quite remarkable!

What Fact Are You Really Surprised That More People Don’t Know About? 

The Fish River Canyon actually isn’t the second biggest canyon in the world; and apparently, the Grand Canyon isn’t the largest either.

What are your ‘must have’ travel items? 

Noise-cancelling headphones and an emergency credit card.

Why should people visit Namibia?

It’s still a fairly unscathed tourist destination and at the rate of human expansion, it might not be for very long.  So visit now!
