Mini-Retirement? Extended Career Break? Sabbatical? How I Made it…

Stramberk, Czech Republic
Stramberk, the place I currently call home

Many of us dream of taking an extended career break or sabbatical. A fortuitous sequence of events has led me to the Czech Republic for four months.  See how you can make it happen too.

This is the next adventure for me in this wonderful life.  With Darina, my Czech wife pregnant, we took the opportunity to take a paternity leave extended career break from my high level corporate architecture job in Washington DC.  We’ll be spending this time in Stramberk, the beautiful, hillside, castle towered town in the eastern Czech Republic.  I know people don’t think something like this is possible in their lives, but all it took was a little planning, a little conservation of resources, and putting the dream out there.  See the steps we took to make it all possible
