Wanderlust Workbook

whale books presents (1)

How would it feel to finally take that trip that you’ve been talking about for years

To spend weeks poking around hot, interesting foreign cities.

To wake up when you’re ready (not when the alarm goes off).

To learn Thai well enough to negotiate the price of your motorcycle rental + order your curry how you like it.

Many of us fantasize about long-term travel but we don’t know where to start.

Managing all those visas, booking flights, saving money, dealing with your worldly belongings – it’s incredibly intimidating and totally overwhelming. So a lot of us don’t do it. We make excuses or make do with two week trips.

We can do better than that. Let’s make your travel dream happen.

I know how to travel long term because I’ve done it. Multiple times. On five separate occasions (!!!) I’ve sold everything I own and moved to a new country. If I can do it, so can you.

In fact, I really want you to do it which is why I wrote this book.

For $15 you get 12,000 words, 16 worksheets, an audio version of the book, and  1-year plan to make your trip happen.
