EER030: Karen King talks long-term family travel planning

Meet Karen King. She and her husband Cameron plan to take their kids on an indefinite adventure starting in January 2016. Karen and company have traveled before, but this will be their first stint of long-term travel, and their plans aren’t like any other family I’ve interviewed so far.

Long-term Family Travel planning

You see, Cameron plans to keep his job in Australia, and when I say “keep his job,” I don’t mean remote working.  No, he plans to return to Australia every two weeks! An unusual plan to be sure, but it could very likely fall into the “so crazy it just might work” category. Here I talk with Karen about her previous travels, what she plans to carry with her, and many other details on her mind related to family travel planning.
