Meet The Family

Erika's incredible 6-year international backpacking journey, spanning 80 passport stamps and culminating in Barbados, ultimately led her to Matt. It was love at first sight, and after just four months, Matt sold everything to join Erika in her global adventures. Love blossomed, they got married, and soon welcomed their daughter Shanti Mae into the world.

As 2020 brought international travel to a halt due to Covid, the couple searched for a way to continue exploring while providing stability for their growing family. They discovered the world of skoolie living and decided to build their own custom skoolie. For three years, they enjoyed their full-time mobile lifestyle, traversing the USA and even upgrading to a second bus.

Now, with international travel back on the horizon, Erika, Matt, and Shanti Mae have resumed their global journeys, experiencing new cultures and sights as a family.
