The story goes that “a 40-year-old London tech entrepreneur had just sold his multimillion-dollar business and wanted a break before deciding his next move. He made an appointment with Nick Newbury, the cofounder of Original Travel, a U.K.-based ultrafixer.”  One of his criteria was that he didn’t want to stay in hotels. “Newbury came up with a bender of a trip, exploring 66 countries over two years via private jet” and called it a super sabbatical. “The cost for the trip was well into the seven figures, but who can put a price on personal transformation? … Now burned-out billionaires are turbocharging the concept.”
