To all your sabbaticals questions, no matter how small
I gave my 20s to work, but something had to give. I’ve made some big changes, and in the last 5 years I’ve taken 3 sabbaticals and moved to a new country.
I’m not part of the ‘I quit my job to travel the world’ brigade, far from it. I love having the security of a career, but I don’t want to look back when I’m 80 have missed the rest of life.
I created this site because I found planning a sabbatical hard, as there simply wasn’t a single place to find all the tools I needed.
