Continuing saluting the 20th anniversary of Global Traveler, today I feature Mark DeCarlo and Yeni Alvarez. The couple joined the GT world late last year, with their A Fork on the Road podcast.
I first met Mark at the ill-fated Rewind Con. It was a great convention for fans, but not for the celebrities. That's their story to tell though.
I interviewed Mark there and when I started my Talking Travel series for GT, I thought of him and Yeno because of their travel and food podcast. While talking off-camera, we discussed a partnership which aw AFotR come to GT. It debuted late last year and became a popular blog feature.
When GT held their big event in Pasadena, I knew the couple lived fairly close and naturally invited them. It was surreal seeing them at the event though. It was real worlds colliding stuff
