Neil Howe and The Nomadder Podcast welcomed featured guest Karilyn Owen on the show to talk about how travel has impacted her life and the life of her family, especially her inquisitive son, Cian, who has lived in and visited more countries than most do in a lifetime and still only 8 years old.
Karilyn Owen, the founder of the popular family travel blog No Back Home, is a writer, photographer and social influencer sharing her family’s adventures at home in Southern California and around the world to inspire other families to get out and explore, even if it’s just in their own city.
Karilyn and her nature obsessed 8-year old’s travels focus on outdoor adventures, exploring different cultures and seeking out the world’s beauty wherever they find themselves. Since 2000, Karilyn has traveled to 47 countries on her own and to 30 with her son. Karilyn was honored to be named Visit California’s Digital Influencer of the Year (for 2017).
Karilyn has been able to make a business out of her passion traveling the world with her son by building an audience of people longing to travel. From the pleading of her young son while away on adventures saying, “No Back Home”, the No Back Home travel blog was born. It has since become a hub for other families to see the world through Karliyn’s eyes and get information and travel tips while being inspired to get out and travel more with their own families.
In the interview, Karilyn shares some of the best memories they have had while traveling along with the lessons learned and the benefits of hands-on learning and lasting life lessons for her son. They share their recent trip through Asia, highlighting their favorite countries and cultures. Karilyn also shares their visit to the pyramids in Egypt and the sights and sounds that will be ingrained in their memories forever.
Owen encourages others to get out and travel more, even if it is just around their own city or neighborhood. There is plenty to see and a lot to learn from just getting out there and experiencing life.
