In episode 15, I interview Katrina Morrison, a flight attendant mom and wife who homeschools her three children. Her family’s lifestyle allows them to travel whenever and wherever they want – including 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.
During 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.
