Time between being at home and travel abroad (8)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

interval

Here is my best explanation:

'time between' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'at home and travel abroad' is the wordplay.
'at home' becomes 'in' ('in' can be similar in meaning to 'at home').
'and' says to put letters next to each other.
'abroad' indicates anagramming the letters.
'travel' with letters rearranged gives 'terval'.
'in'+'terval'='INTERVAL'

'being' is the link.
