Would you quit working for a year?

Let's say you had enough money to live on for a year and then some! Your dream is to travel before your kids start school. You want to live in another state temporarily and possibly go overseas for a month. Basically, just go where you want when you want...and be super adventurous! Would you quit the job  you love for a year with no guarantee that there will be an opening for you when you come back?

No, I would not quit my job that I love for a year with no guarantee that there will be an opening for me when I come back.

It would really depend on a lot of things.  For me, no, because I'm single and it's my sole responsibility to provide security for my daughter.

With light and love

Yup. You can always find another job and might even find a place you love and set up life there. No job will ever give the same experience and world view that travel can.

That's what I think, too.

It sounds nice, but I don't think I would be able to do it

No.  My husband and I traveled extensively before we had kids.  Our kids travel with us now usually we go two or three places a year plus we have a vacation home we frequent on the weekends during the summer.  We are both business owners so we could always just allow our management staff to run things so we could travel a year but we wouldn't do that because we enjoy working.

No, having a job is very important.  Trips to other places can be arranged during school breaks.
