Mongolia? Antarctica? Planning The Exception Sabbatical

Planning an exception sabbatical with room to travel, rest, think and brainstorm is a daring game of Tetris. However, it can be done and done to maximize the benefits intended of sabbatical time. Susie Chau, Carpe Diem Traveler, is the master brick stacker for the job.

At this moment, we are all inside, sheltering from Covid-19. It is giving lots of us time to pause and think about our next life phase. It may even feel like you are on a forced sabbatical, not of your choice or timing. You may have discovered that you work very efficiently from home and might jus want to try it in an all together different country!

We Treat Your PTO Like a VIP ~ Susie Chau

What would it look like if you chose the time and location of your sabbatical? What would a month of travel look like? How about a year? How much flexibility should you plan in?

Through the lens of Susie's own year long sabbatical we do some serious #traveldreaming ! Susie and her husband took on all seven continents in a year long sabbatical. They learned a lot about themselves, their partner and what really mattered to them in life. This also motivated Susie to dive into the travel industry and help others plan their own exceptional sabbaticals.
