Karen King and her husband and two kids left their traditional lives in Australia 19 months ago and have since hit 23 countries house sitting, airbnbing and World Schooling.
In this episode we dig into two specific areas: How have the kids adapted to a new way of learning and how are they paying for their adventures?
What are the steps that she’s taken to transition their kids from a traditional school to learning on the road. An interesting point that she brings up is that for every 1 year a child is in a traditional school it will take them 1 month to get acclimated to a new way of learning and that timeframe also applies to the parents.
What is World Schooling vs. traditional schooling?
That second area that we get into is of course the money. 2-3 years ago they knew very little about making money online but it took a 7 week vacation and for Karen to read the 4 hour work week for the switch to flip and pointed her to an entirely new way to live.
“Life on the road has been incredible and I wish I would have known about this 10 years earlier.”
