  1. Listening to the podcast and I’m so bummed. I love how Mark is willing to try anything (eg DoorDash) and his customer service stories-it was so different than the usual Maldives run. Best of luck-hope you change your mind.

  2. Thanks for highlighting one of my favorite US hotels-The Driskill and one of the best Skyclub lounges in one episode!

  3. Mark, I am disappointed to hear you are leaving. Are you staying in miles and points or taking a job in a different area? Good luck to you.
