by S.E. Ansley (Sea)
A guide to a work-travel life, amazing adventures around the world, and preparing for sea change. More than ever we need a backup plan that will come through. Plan Sea is available internationally in hardcover and paperback print editions, Deluxe eBook and forthcoming Audiobook.
Plan Sea prepares for the unexpected, with back up plans to ensure safe and seamless travels and survival.
Despite setting out on a "short" 3 month trip, Sea has since given up Melbourne life entirely, still traveling indefinitely - presently locked down in Goa, India. The past 3+ years of adventures have taken Sea through Europe, an unexpected spiritual journey through India, the magical utopia of Auroville, three Burning Man events, South Korea and South East Asia, from camping at beaches, national parks and a Danish quarry, to penthouses in Amsterdam and the Czech Republic, underground clubs in Berlin, mountain lodges in Poland, beach villas in Sri Lanka, and sleeping on the streets of Seoul and Amsterdam. 25 countries in total. All on a budget of less than $200 per week.
Sea shares his core life and travel tips, demonstrating their impact along the way. The book covers trip planning, finding best deals on transport and lodging, running multiple projects on the road, emergency money and cryptocurrency, long distance relationships (and break ups), and how travel makes a lasting impact on one's own place in the world. With deep, intimately personal stories across over three years of spontaneous travels.
Ready for your own sea change? It starts with a dream, and making the first plans for your one way ticket to adventure.
