Taking extended periods of time out to go travel can be seen as a risk to some. While travel is often associated with beach days, adventurous activities and having a great social life, it can often be misunderstood for what benefits it brings for your work life.

You might think that is damaging to what path you take professionally, but we are now starting to discover why travelling actually makes you MORE employable.
