We are Mark & Jodie from Cornwall in South West England and Travelphant is our travel blog that we setup back in 2007 to showcase great places to visit, stay and experience around the World. Since 2009 we have two additions to our family with our two boys, Dylan and Harry, and so our travels have changed slightly to more family orientated holidays but still with a side of adventure. You can view some of our family travels here.
Our love for travel, photography and video go hand in hand. In 2012, I (Mark) left a career in digital marketing to pursue my love of travel and photography and telling stories from behind the lens. I became a wedding photographer in Cornwall (Mark Shaw Photography) and have photographed over 100 weddings in the South West of England, France and Italy whilst continuing this travel blog which I started back in 2008. Travelphant is a place where I share travel tips, inspiration and my own travels and as Travelphant continues to grow, so do our boys and our love for travel and adventure.
We’re lucky enough to have visited many amazing countries and cities over the years including New Zealand, US, Hawaii, Canada, Mexico, Spain, Italy, Cyprus, Sardinia, France, Austria, and many more.
We hope this site gives you some inspiration and handy tips to go and chase your own adventures. Travel is the best kind of education so go get lost, even if it’s just outside your own doorstep!
