About me

Me and Uluru

I am dubbed Mark Wordsworm. The “TC” is my Travelling Companion. She goes by the name of Sarah Maddox, and has her own blog at ffeathers, a technical writer’s blog.

I am a Hallmark bookmark, serial number 95 HBM 80-1. At a guess, I’m around 25 years old. I spend most of my time inside a book (well, duh) while my Travelling Companion sees the world.

My exact origins are lost in the mists of time and geography. My Travelling Companion picked me up in a bookshop called “The Bookworm” somewhere in South Africa – Cape Town or Rivonia, most likely. The year was probably earlier than 1986. Putting modesty aside, I haven’t changed much. Alas, I can’t say the same for the TC.

Since then I’ve lived in South Africa, England, the Netherlands and Australia and travelled the world. In this blog, I’ll tell you about my travels and pass on some acquired wisdom. A tad tedious, you think? Wait and see.

Do you know anything about me?

Please drop me a comment if you’ve seen others like me or if you can pinpoint my age more exactly than I can.

  5. Mr. Worm,
    How, if available, could I apply to be an assistant to your work or colleagues of yours or yourself. I would love to research these gigantic crocs. If there is any job available in your field, please let know about it if you could.
    Thank you very much.

  6. Thanks for travelling guide

  7. Hey! I think I might have had one of your brethren worms when I was about ten. Unfortunately he crawled into some campy mystery novels and was lost forever. Keep up the travels and the blogging Mr. 95 HBM 80-1!

  8. Hallo Hieronymo

    Worm sibs, now there’s an interesting thought. We were all fairly close at one stage, but then we scattered to far-flung corners. We do share a family trait of getting lost in a good book. Perhaps the campy mystery lover (and by that I mean the lover of campy mysteries) will resurface and delight you all. Much as I have done.

    I’ve so much enjoyed having you drop by my blog, Hieronymo. I paid a call to your own blog and am greatly impressed by the richness and variety of content.

    With respectful regards
    Mark Wordsworm

  10. Hey travelling worm🙂 Thank you for this interesting and creative blog! Especially I liked what you wrote about Utrecht, since I moved to the Netherlands a few month ago. I wanted to ask you something regarding my master thesis. It is about travel blogs and how they influence the travel experience. It would be really helpful for me if I could have a little talk with you about it. If you are interested, I can explain you more via email.🙂 Grettings from Tilburg, Marie

  11. Dag Marie!
    Your Masters thesis sounds interesting. I’ll email you about it.
    Yours in academia,
    Mark Wordsworm

  12. Hello! I am curious where you found the city seal of New Orleans (first picture) in this post: https://travellingworm.wordpress.com/2013/05/12/new-orleans-views-and-vampires/

  13. Hallo Emily
    The city seal is low down on the lamp posts. I guess a person needs to be as short as I to notice it.
    Yours humbly
    Mark Wordsworm

  14. Dear Mark,
    My names Sam from ‘BeAmazed’ (https://goo.gl/sgvlrD). I just came across your video (“World’s 7th most dangerous road – Skipper’s Canyon” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQeyyMUI77g) and I was wondering whether we could acquire permission from you to use some (maybe around 10 seconds worth) of this footage in a video we’re making called ’10 Most DANGERIOUS roads in the world’? We will of course provide you with written credit on screen (with an annotation) and your YouTube video link will be in the description. Just to let you know, we’re asking for commercial purposes, which basically just means that we’ll be running ads on the final video (which will probably be around 5 minutes in total). I hope this is all clear and there are no issues – it would be great to have some of your footage in our video. If you agree please email back (beamazedvideos@gmail.com) stating that you allow us to show some of your video. Many thanks!
    -Sam / Creator @ Be Amazed
