Mark and Giulia are traveling the world for 4 months, from December 2010 to April 2011. To learn a bit about the idea behind this website, you can read their first post, Welcome Aboard.
Mark is a history teacher and a writer. He has taught and coached at two different private schools and loved the experience of working with high school students. As a writer, he is a contributor and the associate editor for the Ocean Beach Bulletin, a hyper-local news organization in Western San Francisco. He also writes a weekly column for the Scuttlefish, an ocean-appreciation website, and interviews ocean enthusiasts. He like to surf, swim, bike, run, read, and eat milkshakes.
Giulia was born and raised in Italy. She moved to the States when she was 8 and has lived here ever since. She met Mark the first week of freshman year at Georgetown University, and they have been together ever since. She has a strong passion for online marketing and has worked for numerous beauty & fashion companies. She loves kids, so much so that she spent the last year volunteering at a pre-school and the last 3 years as a board member for a girls secondary school in Kenya. She loves hot yoga, her bulldog Augustus, vintage flea markets, and anything Marc Jacobs.
