5 Minutes With Iain Mallory

For McCool Travel’s 100th travel profile, I am happy to present Iain Mallory.
What? 100th interview. Amazing. I remember my first interview like it was yesterday. My how time has flown.
You know how I love Twitter chats, right? Well, Mr. Mallory seems to be hosting nearly every prominent Twitter chat I attend. While he and I often discuss our favorite topic, the mighty mojito, during many Twitter chats, we have not yet had the opportunity to share a pitcher of the magic elixir. One day!
I did not uncover Iain Mallory’s secret for Twitter dominance but he did share some travel tips and humor (or for him, humour).
Iain Mallory’s bio:
“Iain is an ex-military man and served as a Warrant Officer in the Army Physical Training Corps. This enabled him to become highly qualified in a large number of adventurous activities, participating in many expeditions to many parts of the World which satisfied his wanderlust. He now works as a freelance writer and photographer and enjoys finding adventure wherever he travels. He publishes the popular website Mallory On Travel, an adventure travel guide for the everyday adventurer. ”
