Mark, 37

Touring all over the world as a bassist with his band, Mark has had more than his fair share of international travel. But punishing schedules meant all he really got to see was the inside of tour buses, music venues and bars. He rarely, if ever, got to spend time in the wilderness, hiking up mountain trails and savouring the views at each pass.

For Mark, the biggest challenge was having the opportunity to slow down and appreciate the moment.
