In this episode, I interview Katrina Morrison, a flight attendant mom and wife who home schools her three children. She’s created a lifestyle that allows her family to travel whenever and wherever they want – including to wonderful destinations like Morocco, Paris, Costa Rica and Jamaica. She’s also the force behind the blog My Mommy Flies, where she shares her experience and tips on how to balance travel and family.
In our conversation she provides insight into the flight attendant career and lifestyle. She also talks about her experience with homeschooling (or “unschooling” as she calls it) and how it’s opened the door to more travel. And of course, Katrina leaves us with some great tips for other traveling moms. Her story is yet another inspiring example of how women are finding creative ways to travel more.
