Welcome to the Travelman Podcast, my name is Ben and I host this cool little podcast. If you’re joining me for the first time then thanks a heap for listening.
On today’s episode, I’ll be chatting with Mark Wolters who hosts the very popular travel channel, Wolters World on YouTube. Amassing over 600,000 subscribers Mark brings people travel advice, travel guides and his enjoyable take on his love and hate about a place.
From listening to Wolters World for a long time I’ve realised Mark is a real Francophile and enjoys Europe, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t visit the rest of the world also. Sometimes he even has his family with him.
So, sit back and enjoy the conversation I had with Mark.
