OUR WILD STORY

Hi adventurer! We are Zac and Ine, life and business partners in crime. We met three 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...
