I’m Mark Newsome.
Somewhere online I have a profile that simply says:
That’s me in a nutshell, especially the leisure obsession.
Oh, and I used to have really long hair.
Yeah, that’s me.
It’s a photo of me and Jenn near the ridge of the Bridger Mountains just outside of Bozeman, Montana.
Here’s a little more recent one:
Fast forward 20 years and here we are last fall enjoying a date night, sans the munchkins (and the hair), at Epcot.
I have to thank my folks, Tom and Sue Newsome, for fostering a love of travel in me at an early age.
They did this by making possible trips to out of the way places like:
- Beaufort, North Carolina
- Kalispell, Montana
- Omsk, Russia, and
- Ulan Bator, Mongolia
…which was pretty counter cultural back in the 1970s and 80s when I was growing up in rural North Carolina!
These days, I’m the boy behind Southern Girl Travel.
I enjoy nothing more than helping you discover perfect, leisure-filled travel.
I do that by creating content, taking photos, tweaking websites, and driving the minivan to the airport!
Enough about me…what about you?
What’s your next adventure and how can we help make it happen?
