X Marks the Spot
Your Go-To Spot for Travel Addiction
Let's map it out...
Welcome to X Marks the Spot, your one stop shop for all things a world traveler wants to know. My name is Brian Marks, a 40-something bachelor who is an insurance broker by day, a sports lover, adventure seeker, bourbon snob, 8-time Uncle of the Year, a wannabe gym rat, semi-professional horse handicapper....and above all a travel dreamer in all times in between. I started my never-ending journey of travel nearly 7 years ago, and like most travelers, as I started checking things off my bucket list it just continued to grow in length.
By creating 'X Marks the Spot' I hope to help fellow wanderlusters learn the tricks of traveling this beautiful World, as I continue to learn myself. I want to help adventure seekers plan out the trip(s) of their dreams; and share stories, itineraries, ideas, photos, and passions. As with any new journey, I'm not sure where this road may take us. I am certain it will be filled with excitement, fun, and adventure; with a beautiful view. Let’s embark on a journey to find your buried treasure, with several stops along the way. Wheels up....
"Happiness is not a location, its a destination"
