Looking to study a Masters - how would a two-and-a-half-year study-gap be viewed by Universities in the US/Europe?

Firstly - hello everyone! I'm completely new here, and am full of silly questions regarding studying abroad. Here we go... I'm a 24-year-old Geography (BSc) graduate from the University of Southampton - I graduated in 2013, and having had a little while away from study, have the real urge to follow Geography/Climate Studies at Masters level. Abroad. My question is - how would a two-and-a-half-year hiatus be viewed by Universities in the US & around Europe? Would I be at disadvantage due to a lack of consecutive study? If so, has anyone trodden the path, and have any advice? The discipline can be completely unrelated - I'm just looking for general opinion. Thanks in advance guys! Joe
