I have made my decision. I am going to take a career break to travel. So far, most of the people that know me have been very supportive of this idea and think it is just what I need. I haven’t decided how long the break will be, or all the specifics. I do have a few specific places in mind, and I’m going to give myself 6 – 9 months before I quit my job and leave. I also have to take into account finances and all that jazz.
I will be doing this solo for part, if not all of, the trip. I am excited and terrified at the the same time! Most of all, though, I’m happy about it. I’m happy I can finally make this decision for myself.
As I make more concrete plans and have more thoughts on the topic of long term travel I will be posting them here 🙂
