Nationally recognized travel expert and television correspondent Mark Murphy chronicles the dicey, humorous, sometimes bizarre and always entertaining experiences he encounters in far-flung locales when he's not on camera. This highly entertaining multimedia travelogue, complete with exclusive, unpublished video outtakes, focuses Murphy's witty and perceptive lens on the culture of traveling, revealing unforgettable characters and global humanity in all its quirkiness -- from a predatory Cougar Grandma in Germany to a wiseguy shakedown on a picturesque Greek island, serious partying in Ho Chi Minh City, sampling shocking edibles in Cambodia and much more.
Mark Murphy is a charismatic and slightly neurotic germophobe who makes a living gallivanting around the world, visiting more than 70 countries to date! He is frequently seen partying with exotic locals in clubs one day and producing professional travel content for his Travalliancemedia network the next. His penchant for all things Far East including copious amounts of Asian food has dubbed his nationality "Asian fusion" around the office. Mark habitually purchases gaudy and bizarre furniture for his office that has his employees wondering whether the pirate-treasure-chest looking decorative piece is coming or going...in the trash. As founder and CEO of Travalliancemedia this outspoken, sometimes politically incorrect travel industry expert of 20 years is regularly called upon to provide his expertise on a variety of topics, from cruise ship mishaps (Norovirus, anyone?) to where adventure-seekers can get the ultimate buzz. From the Travel Channel, CBS News, Fox, Inside Edition, The Today Show, and numerous print and radio interviews, Mark brings his extraordinary first-hand experiences to the masses (and regularly munches on deep-fried crickets on-air). A family man, Mark enjoys spending time with his VERY understanding wife Karen, their two children and the two dogs.
