Highlands to Island Vlog
Hi, we’re the Wild Brothers (don’t worry, Wild is our last name). We are four brothers who grew up as missionary kids in the highland rainforests of Papua Indonesia who now find ourselves transitioned to warmer weather on the coast. In this new season of life, we’re living on a tropical island in the most biodiverse marine environment in the world!
Our weekly vlog is family friendly and gives you an exclusive insider's look into our latest adventures, family philosophy, jaw-dropping scenery, and life as intentional castaways. Prepare yourself, tropical vibes are coming your way!
