Mark Schatzker - Hwy 1.jpg

This month, Mark Schatzker will embark on a trip around the world.  The catch?  He can only travel by land and sea, and he must complete his trip within 80 days.  Mark will soak-up the culture and community of each destination, including the roadside food, restaurant chains and fine dining along the way.  During his first week, Mark departs from Brooklyn, New York by car and drives through Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, and three of California’s most beloved tourist spots – Napa Valley, San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Mark will be sending regular reports on his adventures and delectable experiences – to see where he is now, you can go to his blog on
