Mark Weins was born on 26th February 1986 in Phoenix, Arizona to Chinese mom and American Dad. His parents were missionaries who are the promoters of religion around the world due to which Mark moved around a lot as a child. He and his family moved to Albertville, France while he was five years of age.
Later his family moved to the Democratic Republic of Congo, where they stayed for about three and a half years. Mark was homeschooled during this period. Again the Weins family had to move to Nairobi, Kenya after war broke out in Congo. Mark finished his high school education in an International School in Kenya.
Later, he returned to Arizona and joined Arizona State University and graduated with a degree in Global Studies. Upon graduation, he traveled to South America before heading to South Asia.
Since traveling required money, 33-year-old went low on cash and decided to go to Bangkok and signed up to become an English teacher.

Married a Foody
Mark married a foody from Thailand Ying Weins in July 2013. The couple first met in Bangkok and instantly shared a connection. Before they tied the knot, the couple traveled several exotic places together and made a lot of videos. Since she loved to travel and eat food which made it easier for Mark after marriage since they both could get a chance to spend quality time together. In his own words Mark said in an interview:
”I’m so excited to be married, and part of the reason is that it means that I don’t have to say goodbye to my wife (previous girlfriend), but I’m taking her with me everywhere I go. We work together, so she’s my wife and partner in travel.”
Moreover, he considers himself lucky since he married an exceptional chef. Apart, he loves the food cooked by his wife who he considers to be a great cook. He continued:
“I do enjoy cooking when I have an opportunity, but I lived in a studio apartment with no kitchen for so many years (before getting married) that I got in the habit of not cooking. Now that I am married, my wife and her mother cook so incredibly well, I barely touch the wok!”
As of now, the couple is happily married and share a son together. They welcomed their only child Micah Weins whom he introduces in one of his videos on 17th November 2016. Micah is one lucky kid who has already traveled to many countries with his parents.
