Hi, I'm Erik and welcome to my travel site!
My travel site is filled with vacation inspiration, videos, helpful how-to planning travel tips and information about airlines, hotel and lodging options, car rentals and so much more. Watch videos, read my blog posts, listen to podcast episodes and then get out and explore!
MEET ERIK THE TRAVEL GUY
My name is Erik Hastings, (a.k.a. Erik the Travel Guy) and I am an EMMY award-winning television personality who speaks directly to viewers who simply "get their vacations wrong". In addition to being a single dad of two amazing children, I am the host and managing editor of the internationally syndicated television series "Beyond Your Backyard" for public broadcasting stations (PBS) and other networks/VOD platforms. I am thrilled to be a part of an incredibly talented team of industry pros and the editorial driving force of my media platform. While the travel industry directly supports millions of families worldwide, I believe travel makes the world a better place. Through exploration and discovery, I have learned that travel brings cultures together. Read Erik's Full Bio.
