Polar Explorer and Expedition Leader
In today’s LEGEND LIFE STORY interview I will be sharing my interview with Mark Wood, who is a British polar explorer and expedition leader.
Mark has completed over 30 major polar and mountain expeditions around the world including solo and unsupported expeditions to both the geographic north and south poles. He has also cycled across the US, the length of New Zealand, and Oman and walked across Iceland.
Mark is also an acclaimed photographer and author of the books Solo Explorer and Photographic Book Rock and Ice. He is also a professional speaker and film maker.
In our interview we discuss a little about your Mark’s background. Mark’s adventure and exploration while growing up. What his experience was before joining the military, what was his first real adventure and what impact it had on him.
Mark talked about his passion for raising awareness about climate change and global warming and the work he is involved in related to this and in particular the education programs. He gave his definition of adventure and why having adventures is important. He also gives his definition of ageless living, three life lessons he has learned in life and what living his best life, a legend life means to him.
“Focus on the experience, push out the negativity, appreciate your family and people around you.”
