Hello: Following this previous thread: (Profs who have done a full year sabbatical overseas with a family: How did you make it work?), I am equally curious about whether any prof has done a full-year sabbatical overseas without their family (in this case spouse).
I am due for a sabbatical in about 2yrs, and exploring some very useful options abroad. Unfortunately, my spouse's job is not flexible enough for them to leave and take another job abroad. They have to remain in the US, unless they take a leave of absence, which they may or not qualify for.
Given my age, it may not be possible to postpone the sabbatical much later.
Has anyone found themselves in this situation, and taken a sabbatical leave abroad without their spouse?
How did it work - How did you manage the plans and communications around leaving the spouse behind? How often did you and spouse travel back and forth for visits?
