The travel writer posts about their family experiences during their trips to various parts of the world on their website entitled “Travel with Bender.”

Travels-with-BenderThe website provides travelers with information about the destination the Benders have been to. Through their writing, the Binders give useful tips to get to different places, things to look out for, adventures and dining in various areas and even how to move around when travelling the world with two children. In speaking to The San Pedro Sun, the Benders said that they got to know about Belize and San Pedro Town after they met another tourist who had been in Belize previously.

“When the person described Belize to me, I knew right away that this was a place I need to come to. I have written an article about San Pedro – an overview on how to basically travel to a destination like Belize from such a distance. We have also written about Xanadu Island Resort and we got to write about our experience on a trip with SEAduced by Belize. This place is the perfect get away, it is a relaxing place.” said Erin.
