It is a real honour to present our latest entrant, Mark Boyter, who is the author of the wonderful travel memoir Crescent Moon over Laos. If you haven't read it yet then I would highly recommend you do.
Mark's travel story entry is entitled Asakusa and The Monk.
Mark is a traveller who writes, a writer who runs, a runner who drinks, and a drinker who loves movies. On rare occasions, he is all five.
From Vancouver, Canada and a teacher by training, he's lived and taught in his native Canada, Japan and the UAE.
His first book, Crescent Moon Over Laos, was published in 2014. He is working on other ideas that may or may not evolve into a second book, as well as a collection of short stories.
He lives in Vancouver with his long time partner and their three cats.
