About Marko

I’m Marko, a writer, producer and lifelong vagabond. I started traveling because I’ve always had an insatiable curiosity about the world. My mom used to work for Pan Am airlines, so I caught the travel bug early and became obsessed with old maps, foreign languages, and books about adventures in faraway places.

I’ve always wanted to work towards building understanding between different cultures. I studied international relations at UCLA, interned in the State Department, and worked in economic development in India before finding my passion in travel writing - first in blogs from South East Asia, then as a guidebook author in Spain and Argentina.

I prefer to travel by motorcycle, train, sailboat or hitchhiking, feel most comfortable when totally lost, and believe that random travel suggestions are dancing lessons from god!
