Have you ever taken a sabbatical, career break or extended trip? If yes, tell us about it!

Yes, all the time when I was in my 20's. I hit Europe, Australia, NZ, Indonesia, Alaska and Hawaii. The traveling is a bit slower in my 30's. Only Colombia, Costa Rica and Mexico so far.

If you haven't, what obstacles have gotten in the way?

Only having three weeks of vacation that is difficult to take all at one time as my employer frowns on that much time away from work.

What would be your ideal, dream getaway?

Not to come back.


This could be a good alternative to quitting my job, chopping off my hair, dying it blue and leaving the country.
