This episode's guest is many things - including an author and writer, running coach, scuba instructor, Zen monk. He’s also a single father of an adopted son. In 2011, he left his career to explore a nomadic lifestyle with his then 9-year old son, believing that by ‘world schooling’ him, he can give his son the greatest opportunity, the chance to experience and learn about the amazing and complex world in which we live.
Talon Windwalker shares these stories, struggles, and experiences on his blog, 1dad1kid.com. I’m thrilled to connect with Talon, and share his story about living without regrets, and why it’s so important to give young people the encouragement and opportunity to travel.
What We Cover:
How a trip to the Philippines to help with cleft palette surgeries changed Talon's life by exposing him to the beauty of the people and transformations, and gave Talon a desire to "experience life on a deeper level."
How he came to the decision to "world school" his son.
How by changing your travel style just a little, you can expose yourself to amazing experiences.
“I came back totally radically changed. This was experiencing life on a deeper level... Now I want to see life. That has changed everything.” - Talon Windwalker
