So an idea popped into my head - why not take some time out and go travelling for a year?
Hey Phil,

So what did you end up doing/not doing?

Cheers,

Frank

I'm taking a new job in Basel starting in January next year - if I don't like the job or the city, my plan B will be to go travelling.

But even if I do like the job/city, I plan to do some travelling anyway, but it seems I have to be quite organised for this and so will take some tips from a friend who is just coming back from travelling the world.

I used to work for great Singaporean company in UK, there was this chap who had UK Residency, after he retured to Singapore he used to return to UK every year to keep it up to date. He used it as excuse to go on golfing holiday. Lucky for me, as he eventually returned to UK as my wonderful boss, delightful. (actually all Singaporeans I found respectful and nice people). Anyway perhaps it is similar - that was a good quote, so guess you should return after 11 months to be on the safe side
thanks. having just lost my right to live work in hong kong because i didn't get back within the allotted time period (i now have to go through a tribunal process to try to reverse the decision) i will play it safe and break up a trip to avoid this eventuality.

in any case, i think i would try to break up the trip in any case e.g. 3-4 months in the far east and then visit the folks for a month before travelling south america etc. etc.

the crazy thing is that switzerland is so expensive, that you're practically saving money by going on holiday!
