Midlife travel should serve a greater purpose
After 50, a beach vacation may have become your routine getaway, but it is just that – routine. You want experiences that will inspire you to live a bigger more meaningful life. One word: travel. Not for the sake of relaxation but expansion!
My guest is Karen McCann, 65, who along with her husband Rich, has traveled to over 60 countries with few solid plans and one suitcase. She shares the value of traveling outside of your comfort zone and how to break free from homogenized travel.
In this episode, Karen shares her passion for enriching life through travel and how to get off the beaten track!
About Karen McCann
Both of McCann’s travel memoirs have repeatedly hit number one on Amazon in Kindle travel books. Dancing in the Fountain describes her transition from Cleveland, Ohio to Seville, Spain with her husband and dog, and is “reminiscent of British author Peter Mayle and his romps in France, but with a bit more substance.” Adventures of a Railway Nomad chronicles her three-month, thirteen-country, totally unstructured train trip through Central and Eastern Europe. “Karen’s storytelling is, if possible, even more, enticing than her astonishing journey.”
Karen McCann started her Enjoy Living Abroad blog to document her transition to living as an American expat in Spain. She then began to share her travel adventures with an audience of readers who adore her sense of serendipity and thirst for life’s big experiences. Her travel tips and adventure stories have appeared in Huffington Post, International Living Magazine, New York Daily News, Los Angeles Times, and Lonely Planet. She’s visited more than 60 countries including developing and post-war nations where she and her husband volunteered as consultants to struggling micro enterprises.
