Career Gappers is a blog about travel career breaks. We write about all aspects of taking time off work to travel, from making the initial decision right through to what happens after returning home. Whether it’s the practicalities of preparing to leave home and the office, or inspiration about amazing destinations to visit, if it’s relevant to travel career breaks then we will cover it.
