You found it! This is the perfect place to start.

Welcome! I’m Erin and after running one of the world’s top family travel blogs for 5 years I am excited to offer you Explore With Erin. I started my previous blog when my kids and I left Australia in May 2012 to start a life of nomadic travel. Mia, Caius & I ended up travelling for 5 years across 67 countries.

And while Travel With Bender was born to share my first-hand travel experiences from around the globe, a new season has begun. As Mia, Caius & I attempt to find the balance between slotting back into “normal” home life and our burning passion for travel, Explore with Erin is born. It’s all the travel goodness you expect from me, plus a whole new element on how families, couples, and singles survive life after nomadic travel.

Caius and Mia Bender are probably the most well-traveled young children in the world.” – Forbes

Since Explore With Erin has grown astronomically I created this page to help you find what you’re looking for, whether it be travel tips or just our most popular posts.

But if you have any questions for me feel free to contact me here. I’d love to hear from you.
