Who are we – about us

Our story begins with a shared passion for exploring the world and a desire to craft a lifestyle combining work, travel, and adventure.

Mark and Bec Wyld are just ordinary people from a small town in Australia who love travelling. After racking our brains trying to figure out how we could make this happen more often and more affordable, we set out to start blogging to create a travel blog, being able to leverage free entries and accommodation. We hoped this would allow us to see and do more with our kids and not break the bank.

We started with no experience or knowledge in the blogging or the content creation world. We dived in head-first and created Wyld Family Travel in 2016. It has been a steep and sometimes rocky road since then, with many wins and losses along the way to where we are today.

This has become a vehicle for us to step into the world of being a digital nomad not too far into the future. We aim to live and work in different places worldwide, all we need is a computer and internet access.

Mark Wyld

By day, I work in disability support, contributing to a cause close to my heart. By morning and night, I craft websites and curate content for social media, sharing travel guides that make every journey unique.

In disability support, I find fulfilment in making a positive impact. It’s a meaningful journey that sits side by side with the excitement of my online ventures. I love eating at local places and drinking coffee with my wife when I’m not working or blogging.

Join me as I navigate the real world and the online universe as we work our way out of the 9 to 5 lifestyle and into the world of living in different cities and countries every few months as we travel around.

Bec Wyld

I’m Bec, your travel-loving, content-editing, and social media-creating enthusiast. My two incredible teenage daughters and my husband are at the heart of my adventures.

My love for travel isn’t just a passion; it’s a lifestyle we want to create. When I’m not working in aged care during the day, I’m busy crafting engaging content for social media and fixing Mark’s spelling mistakes. In my aged care work life, I find fulfilment in making a positive impact on the lives of others.

It’s a journey that brings both challenges and moments of genuine connection. Outside of work and travel, you’ll find me socializing with friends or indulging in a game or two on my phone.
