We’re Mark & Mim
Welcome to our little corner of the internet! We wanted to share our love of travel and adventure with the world, so in 2015 we chose to wander; swapping our lives for a life on the road and real human connections instead.
Our great leap into the big wild began with a one-way ticket to Singapore with only the bags on our backs, our DSLR cameras and notebook in our hands, and the tantalising promise of adventure.
Since then, we’ve explored over 30 countries together, hiked the Himalayas in Nepal, watched the sun rise over the temples of Bagan, run down Namibian sand dunes, delved into history in Europe, swam in vast oceans, safaried the African savannah, and explored ancient Cambodian jungles.
WE BELIEVE IN SUSTAINABLE LIVING AND THE POWER OF TRAVEL AS A FORCE FOR GOOD
The Common Wanderer story
At first glance, you might assume we’re part of the ‘we quit our jobs to travel’ crew — except that isn’t quite true.
See back in 2015 when this adventure started, we didn’t quit our jobs in marketing and communications just to travel. We quit them to create a business within the travel space that we were passionate about, that would help curious and adventurous folk like you (and us!) to experience more of what the world has to offer.
Six years on, and The Common Wanderer has become a trusted travel destination and resource for those seeking authentic, real-life experiences and connections in exciting destinations all around the world.
Here, we share the incredible, humbling, exciting places and human stories we discover during our travels, and provide you with all the advice and inspiration you need to depart on your own adventure, consciously, responsibly and ethically.
Whether it’s thought-provoking travel stories, sustainable travel guides, or beautiful photography you seek, we promise to stoke your wanderlust and empower you to wander in whichever direction you choose.
