Pauses in travels abroad (9)


I believe the answer is:


'pauses' is the definition.
(interval can mean a pause or break)

'in travels abroad' is the wordplay.
'abroad' indicates anagramming the letters (abroad can mean moving around).
'travels' anagrammed gives 'tervals'.

(Other definitions for intervals that I've seen before include "Net's viral (anag.)" , "Times between acts" , "Rests" , "Periods of time between parts of a play" , "Intermissions" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph and The Globe and Mail.
