Hey, I’m Mark!

Ballasalla, Isle of Man · Member since November 2010

I was a devoted husband to a wonderful lady who passed away August 21st 2013. Life has changed. We travelled after Amanda's diagnosis, and then 6 months after she passed away I picked up where we left off and headed back to India. I travelled India on this second visit for 3 months, then headed to Nepal then across to Alaska where I hitched, cycled and trekked for 3 months. I'm now zipping between the Isle of Man and England on photography and writing commissions. I also teach yoga four times each week.

I've been learning the guitar and Spanish during the past 6 months (in preparation for my next adventure).

PHILOSOPHY

I've always loved my life, where ever I've been. I always try to be content with the cards life has dealt me (and I've been lucky too!). When the chips are down, I like to remind myself how fortunate I am compared to many other people in the world. The simple opportunity to Couch Surf itself is a gift. If we put out kindness, consideration and generosity this is what we will receive, this is turn will bring us happiness.

I adore the outdoors. I love snowboarding and mountain biking, surfing, fishing, playing soccer, badminton, squash and volleyball.
I love all types of photography, and write and photograph for a number of specialist magazines (fishing and travel). I love art and theatre. I have become a daily meditator after participating in two 10 day silent meditation retreats whilst in Thailand and in India with my wife, back in 2012.
