The One-Way Ticket Plan:
Find and Fund Your Purpose While Traveling the World


by Alexa West (Bulgaria)


In 2011, Alexa West sat on her bedroom floor, packed her life into a backpack, and got on a one-way flight with just $200 in her pocket. She turned that $200 into over ten years of full-time travel. She went from budget backpacker to solo female travel expert — and she now teaches thousands of women how to travel alone and make money from anywhere.

The One-Way Ticket Plan reveals her decade’s worth of lessons, regrets, embarrassments, love stories, shortcuts, and problem-solving strategies — all packed into a hilarious page-turner and actionable plan for a total life makeover. From real-world advice on how travel can lower your cost of living to guidance on traveling safely, using strange toilets, avoiding tourist traps, dealing with unfamiliar foods, and coping with friendships, romance, and loneliness, Alexa provides the tools and inspiration to turn even the most inexperienced traveler into an expert explorer before ever leaving the couch.


Alexa is also the founder and CEO of “The Solo Girl’s Travel Guides.”  and  has recorded numerous audiobooks and published Kindle books under the  title The Solo Girl’s Travel Guides.
