OUR WILD STORY

Hi adventurer! We are Zac and Ine, life and business partners in crime. We met five years ago in our tri-continental Master's Program, eager to study and explore the world. After a crazy journey through Canada, the Netherlands, and Peru, we realized how travel experiences shaped our lives positively. We broadened our horizons by discovering new cultures and landscapes. Most importantly, we learned that travel brings together people from all around the world, forming connections we never thought was possible. This trip was LIFE-CHANGING. We want everyone to be able to experience that. We want to inspire everyone to travel and explore our beautiful world! With that idea in mind, World Wild Hearts was born...

OUR MISSION

"To help you plan the trip of your dreams"

The content on our website and YouTube channel is meant to inspire and help you to travel and create lifelong memories. Our nomadic lifestyle means we travel slow and immerse ourselves in new countries and cultures. This 'slow travel' allows us to have authentic experiences abroad and gain a complete understanding of destinations. We share this knowledge in our videos and blogs, whether it's about a specific country, city, or hike. You can use this information and tips to make informed decisions about your own adventure.

Travel Timeline

  • 2018: We studied for our Master's program in Canada, the Netherlands, and Peru. We each traveled to various countries during the program, but individually (Ine mainly around South America and Zac around Europe). 

  • 2019: We lived in Canada for a year. We were based in Victoria and traveled around Vancouver Island, the mainland of B.C., and the Canadian Rockies.

  • 2020: We started our year in Belgium, Kenya, Namibia, and South Africa. However, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we ended up back in Canada for the rest of the year. We based ourselves in the Canadian Rockies during the summer.

  • 2021: We spent our first months with family in Washington (US). We also went on a road trip to the Southwest (Arizona, Nevada, and Utah). Afterwards, we traveled to Mexico for 2.5 months. We explored the Yucatan Peninsula and Chiapas. In June, we came back to Washington (US) and went on a road trip around the West Coast (California, Oregon, and Washington). In August, we finally were able to get to Europe. We mainly stayed in Belgium but also went on a trip to Greece and Sweden. Mid-October we headed to Turkey for 2.5 months. 

  • 2022: To kick off the new year, we traveled Egypt for about 6 weeks. We had a great time visiting the ancient temples and learning all about one of the most fascinating histories in the world. After about 2 months exploring the US (and officially getting married in Las Vegas), we headed to Portugal. In Portugal, we visited the Algarve Coast and some of the most famous cities of the country for about one month. Then, we visited Belgium for about 3 weeks to attend weddings, festivals, and do short trips (to Luxembourg!). In mid-July, we finally made it to Norway (we were talking about this for years!). We first stayed two weeks with our friends in Bergen, before going on a two-week road trip to the Lofoten in the north. At the end of August, we flew to Albania and spent 5 weeks traveling around. Afterwards, we crossed the border into the tiny country of Montenegro, where we road tripped for another 2 weeks.
