If you feel overworked and overextended
and you dream of a career sabbatical for extended travel, this is your place!
If we were 23 we could take a gap year. If we were 63 we could retire (maybe!).
But we’re in the middle.
So what do we do?
We take expensive, distracted, guilty vacations, but only for a week or two at most. The laptop and work iPhone is probably with us to check on things "just in case".
Meanwhile, work, commute times, household chores, bills, errands, and general adulting responsibilities await our return. Add it all up and it's an 80-hour work week.
No wonder we're tired.
Am I alone in questioning if there is a better way?
We love our lives and the people in it, but we also crave some freedom to stretch and explore, to cast convention aside for a season and hit the open road.
The real question, of course, is whether we just need a travel sabbatical or if we also need to change our lives so we don’t feel the need to run away at all!
Ouch. That’s kinda deep.
So this site is about you. And me.
Planning, saving for and taking a Midlife Escape to travel for a bit.
And finding home, wherever in the world that may be.
And meaningful work, well-balanced and in just the right amount.
And reflecting on the “thus far” in our lives to make whatever remains the best it can be.
