“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” – St. Augustine

The Ericksons are passionate travelers with a fervent, underlying desire to explore the different parts of the world. Ryder, his wife Nicole, and their seven children, are all infected with the same wanderlust gene that has driven them to travel to the furthest, most exotic corners of the world. 

However, unlike most people who view travel as an opportunity to relax and unwind, the Erickson family sees travel as an investment. They are aware that visiting new and strange places allows them to expand their horizons and expose themselves to new, life-changing experiences. It is through this perspective that Ryder and Nicole have traveled, both as a family and a couple, to London, Hawaii, Australia, South Africa, and more. Their expanded world-view has made them permanent world travelers, and they are not done yet.

In the future, the Erickson family is planning several trips with exciting destinations such as New England and Israel. They are excited to soak up the history and natural wonders these places have to offer. They already know of the wonderful memories they’ll create on top of holding koalas, playing with kangaroos, going on safari while in South Africa, and snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. 

Suffice it to say that the Ericksons are aware of how blessed they are for being able to travel and absorb the beauty of other cultures and places. And more importantly, for doing so as a family.
