Is it true or not that you are an understudy or have recently gotten done with examining? Then that’s not a problem. However, if you already have a job and want to travel the world for a year, you will need to agree on a course of action. Some common choices include applying for unpaid leave, suspending the contract, or resigning.

Regular costs When you travel for an entire year, it makes sense to cut costs at home. If you live in a rented apartment, you can simply move out; otherwise, you should think about renting your apartment or house for the time you are gone, or at least cutting back on expenses that aren’t absolutely necessary (like internet and TV). You can also cancel your mobile phone contract because using a foreign SIM card abroad is more convenient and you can still connect with friends and family via Wi-Fi.

Paying when you’re abroad Most of the time, each country has its own currency. With the exception of an “emergency stash” of a few hundred dollars, you should avoid carrying cash on your trip and instead use an ATM to get cash when you need it. It’s a good idea to bring multiple credit and debit cards with you in case an ATM won’t accept all of them or if something bad happens and you lose one of your cards. Furthermore, imagine a scenario in which the unthinkable occurs and you end up without all of your Mastercards. Well, if you give your next of kin permission to access your bank account at home, they can use Western Union to send money to you.
