Audley specialist Mark


Spain, UK & Ireland Specialist

As a Rhode Island native, I grew up spending most of my time on the beach and exploring all that New England has to offer. When I am not traveling my hobbies include swimming, skiing, hiking and many reality TV shows. While studying history in college, I fell in love with the history of the world and my eyes were opened to travel outside of New England.

Professionally, I have traveled extensively throughout the United States, United Kingdom, Ireland and my most recent adventure with Audley, in Spain launching all the Balearic Islands (Ibiza, Mallorca and Menorca). Immersing myself in the Mediterranean culture including tapas, flamenco, stunning Moorish and Catalan Modernism architecture, local Cala's, and (a few) sangrias.

I strive to share my experience and passion of travel with everyone I meet so they can experience as much as the world has to offer.

Q&A with Mark

Cliffs of Moher

What’s your most vivid travel moment?

While traveling throughout Ireland, I had the opportunity to visit the Cliffs of Moher in County Clare. This had always been a top attraction on my bucket list for years. When we arrived at the picturesque cliffs, I was not only shocked by the stunning views, but was also shocked by the heavy rain and strong wind tunnel that the walking trail offered. Though I had not anticipated or desired this weather, it build a certain type of ambiance seeing the stormy clouds at the same level of the cliffs.

Where would you love to travel next?

Scuba diving the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland, Australia, has always been on my list. Between my fellow colleagues, friends from the area and passion for ocean conservation, I have heard and anticipate it being an experience like no other.

Painting of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth

Which book, film or artwork captures the UK the most?

The St. Ermin’s Hotel in London is a fantastic location for art lovers. As soon as you enter the hotel lobby you are transported into a world of elegant storytelling. One piece of art I found fantastic was a portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The portrait was commissioned to mark the 2022 Platinum Jubilee and was painted by local artist Anika Manuel. The artist chose to embody The Queen’s both formal and playful personality during her 70-year reign.
