Thanks for checking out Mar Gone Wild~ a sustainable travel and lifestyle blog inspired by the wild.
On the surface this may seem like just another blog in a digital sea full of them. But what makes Mar Gone Wild unique is that it was born out of a passion for wild places and wild things, with the mission of inspiring others to help keep them that way.
Here, it’s all about exploring wild-friendly approaches to travel and everyday living (and incorporating research-based content and some quality media production to do it 🙂 ).
From posts and stories about wildlife adventure, ecotourism and sustainable living, to travel videos, vlogs and conservation films, Mar Gone Wild is a place for information and inspiration to help you #livemorewild.
In 2012 I went on my first ever solo trip to South Africa, and it changed everything.(Don’t worry, I won’t bore you with the details because I do plenty of that HERE).
Fast forward to the spring of 2017 — when after years of pursuing my greatest passions: travel, conservation and filmmaking — I knew it was time to begin piecing it all together. And that’s when the idea for Mar Gone Wild was born.
It’d ultimately take me another 6 months, 3 different business plans and 4 different websites (yes, I literally rebuilt this site 4 times) to figure out what I really wanted Mar Gone Wild to become.
It wasn’t until the end of 2017 — when my fiancé and I decided to relocate to South Africa, the place it all started for me — that I got the last bit of inspiration I needed to finally bring Mar Gone Wild to life.
With just a few of the wild-inspired posts, videos and conservation films to come, MarGoneWild.com was officially launched on February 15th, 2018.
While there’s still plenty of work to do before I make a dent in all the information, content and stories I’ve collected over the years — and plenty more of it that lies ahead — I couldn’t be more excited to finally have an official way to share the wild, and all that’s inspired by it, with you.
Thanks again for stopping by and being part of my Mar Gone Wild journey and whatever path, destination or wild story it leads to. I got a feelin’ this is just the beginning. . .
<< I’ll be on the road in Africa until August 2018, so my ability to regularly put out blog posts and videos will be limited until then (but I’ll try my best to keep Mar Gone Wild updated)! In the meantime, you’re welcome to follow my adventures on INSTAGRAM and FACEBOOK. >>
