i agree. do it when you are young. when you get older and have a career, family, and other responsibilities and you won't be able to or it will be extremely hard to do. well, maybe if you become filthy rich or something but for most people that won't happen.maxflores1001 wrote: ↑ I think this is the best time for you to go on that trip. It would be very difficult once you are at a senior level position and once you have settled down. As for the explanation for the employment gap, it's how you phrase it. If you can share your experiences and explain what you have gained in this period, getting a job once you are back won't be much of an issue.
one of my jobs they guy that worked beside me was early 50's, family, etc. didn't come into work one day - found out he had a heart attack shovelling snow that night. everyone that knew him was a mess for weeks. you never know when it's your time so if you have the ability to travel when you are young do it.
