My Destination is focused on offering unrivalled levels of local information. This is what we pride ourselves on, and it's our promise to our users.
Therefore, each destination is run by a team on the ground who have their fingers on the pulse and write from a first-hand experience, whether they are trying out places to eat, visiting sites of interest, undertaking activities, exploring hidden 'secrets', and speaking to the locals who are 'in-the-know'. Our local experts take every effort to accurately capture this information through photography, videos, virtual tours and writings. It can be truly said that our content is fresh, local and 'hand-made'.
Our Local Experts in Galicia
Mark first visited Galicia in 1994 where he ended up at a fiesta of tuna in Burela! Having eaten every conceivable seafood dish and local delicacy washed down with the wines of the region, he's been coming back regularly ever since.
He now lives in Baiona in the Rias Baixas and his property boasts incredible views overlooking the old town, parador, port and Las Islas Cies!
Mark used to be Senior Director of a national town planning consultancy in Bristol, England where he worked for over 20 years. His business and IT skills have propelled him onto even greater things in Galicia where he already has a number of friends and contacts especially in La Coruna, Santiago de Compostela and in Vigo.
Mark loves the people, its gastronomy as well as Galicia's natural beauty and rich architectural heritage. He hopes to be a good ambassador for all it has to offer. In his spare time he likes playing football and reading travel literature/novels.
