Worked out really well. Hardest part was convincing my wife that it wasn't as high risk as she thought it would be. (I had no idea of the risk involved tbh).
Took a year out to travel overseas, came in well under budget (thanks to my SO's frugality) and got the offer of a new job 3 months before heading back. I'm in that job now and am already planning on doing it again.
Got early approval from my wife this time too! 🙂
