Favourite Attributes: I’m a kind, laid back, easy to get along with guy who has killer baby blues and can tie double knots.

Why Do You Travel? Because searching for and discovering the unknown is human nature. Seeing, experiencing, and enjoying new things is my passion.


Pulling off the most convincing Australian accent we’ve ever heard, you might confuse our Mr. Sorenson for a real live Aussie Tarzan. He had his first brush with the FnEZ lifestyle back on a 20-day Thai trip in 2013. Five trips later and we knew we needed this Tarzan on our team. With his flowing locks, expert clambering skills and bottomless tickle trunk, Mr. January for 2016 is none other than the amazing Eric Sorensen!

Eric’s wardrobe might be one of his most famous assets. Known for carrying more costumes than clothes in that well-traveled backpack of his, you’ll want to raid his hostel room for any and all party emergencies. From onesies to wacky tights, animal t-shirts and a wide variety of fanny packs, Eric is not one to be missed in a crowd. Never one to let you stand on the sidelines either, he will make SURE you break out of your shell and let your wonderful self shine through! Isn’t that what traveling is all about?


Currently sharing his love of Cambodia with our 25- and 40-day LTC trippers, keep your ears out for some insane dad jokes, movie quotes or YouTube video references. If you catch him hungover on the beach or in a hammock in the jungle make sure to ask him to take you on a hike…no matter how many buckets he’s downed the night before he won’t say no. Eric’s your guy!

“Eric is an endless pit of smiles and positive energy. He goes above and beyond no matter what! The best way to describe Eric is one simple word… AWESOME!” -Trip Member Connor
