More About Mark Gokingco

I travel because...
it enriches your soul, makes you experience things you would never have expected. Better yet, traveling together makes us experience these things together (or with other people) so we can grow together.
I love to travel to...
see new things, experience different cultures, eat local foods, learn about their history and best of all relax.
I never forget to pack...
my passport and my dive card. You never know when there's an opportunity to go diving. Oh and Insect repellant. If you ever see that show "Monsters Inside Me", you know what I'm talking about.
My weirdest travel habit is...
My wife and I like to seek out a McDonalds after a week or so of overseas travel. Ooooo those burgers are like a piece of home.
It's my dream to travel to...
Egypt... which I plan to do this October.... CHECK THIS OFF MY BUCKET LIST!
When I'm not traveling...
I'm working, watching movies and enjoying my time with my wife.
