Kat Russell-Cowan is a German expat IT professional with a passion for travel. A mini sabbatical has been her answer to living with a travel bug and holding a corporate job. Taking a break every two years to explore the world has kept her sane. As Kat worked for SAP more than 10 years her managers have always been supportive of her time off. It is great to see that big corporations move more towards the concept of 'life leave'. Kat and Oli welcomed their baby son Theo in early 2017. The lucky parents found out that he inherited her love for travelling and his Dad's adventurous personality. This kid had serious FOMO when Oli went ziplining or on the 40m waterslide during their travels. Unbelievably there are many experiences a toddler can join in already. Kat had the best maternity leave ever travelling for 5 months as a family. Theo was 11 weeks old when they packed up their belongings to start their NZ and Europe trip. Enjoying the quality time as a family she decided to quit the corporate job to join Rad Season. Combining work, family and travel is her idea of living the dream. Kat, Oli and Theo are on a mission to visit as many festivals as possible as a family.
