    you have all the time in the world to work and it's hard to get that much time off again (except between jobs, but even then you'll lack health insurance)

    I traveled for 6 months—hit Europe and Asia. 100% recommend taking some time off to travel and experience the world. You’ll have plenty of time to deal with office lingo, politics, and coworkers;)

    Didn't do it since I had no money and needed to work but I wish I had. Probably the last opportunity you'll have that much time without changing jobs

    Best vacations are in between jobs. Is the only time your mind is clear. Enjoy!

    Definitely do it. 2-3month? You won’t have time or the heart to do that often once start working

    Of course. Take at least a month or two. I would take a trip around Europe and enjoy every day with a comfortable pace, with no need to hurry and just mark checkpoints on your list. Just plan to save daylight time for cultural and sport activities, wineries too, and nights for night walks and clubs.

    Later you'll always worry how these few months will look on your resume. Also most companies will want you to start new position as soon as you can.
