What’s your favorite part about leading trips?
Mark’s favorite part about leading trips are the connections you make and strengthen. It’s special to think you have so many people in your extended family.

What’s something you can’t live without while you are traveling?
Can’t live without a good attitude. Fake it till you make it.

Fun fact, special talent, or favorite memory
