About

Argh!

Hi, I’m Mark Zolo (aka the Naughty Nomad).

I’m an Irish guy who loves to travel.

I’ve been to 90+ countries, not to mention Antarctica and a few self proclaimed republics.

My goal is to visit every country in the world. I’m 46% complete.

I’m also a little bit naughty.

In fact, I’m a globetrotting, border jumping, drug smuggling, adrenaline-seeking, international debaucher!

I’ve also been known to travel to war zones dressed as a Mexican Pirate. Argh!

(I’m actually serious).

Enjoy my blog.  Oh, and buy my book! —A #1 Amazon best seller for travel writing!  Check out the reviews via Google for yourself. They have been AMAZING!

If you any questions or would like to contact me, please do so via private message by signing up to the Naughty Nomad Forum: a resource for fellow swagabonds.

Alternatively, you can reach me via the Facebook page.

I don’t answer personal queries via email.

This site does not endorse prostitution.

The author has never paid for sex in his life.
