I read the phrase “mid-life sabbatical” today in reference to a trip like the one we want to take and it made me very happy to know it has a name. It’s a thing, like an afternoon siesta, people do this; it’s not just professors and executives.
The more I research and plan, the more challenges are revealed and I feel the “likelihood meter” wobbling. But as I get deeper into the details and learn more and more, I also feel more confident. The only real obstacle is our own willingness to to pull the trigger, so I just need to keep reading and build our plan.
