Course Description

When is comes to affordable traveling, I believe the most interesting thing to figure out is how to LIVE for free and have unique experiences in almost any country in the world. That's where the fun begins!

By the end of this course you will know:

  • How to live in almost ANY country for free while helping local communities, projects and businesses.
  • How to be creative in your own way and be paid to do that
  • How to pursue your business idea and travel to exotic locations around the world to work on it while being fully sponsored
  • How to experience local culture in almost any country, live there for free, learn local languages and be useful to local communities

You will know all the necessary programs, platforms and principles.

And then it's up to you. You can easily spend few years living around the world for free if you decide to join all the programs that I'll show you.

Or you can have a gap year and join only 1 or 2 — it's up to you. But I can assure you that each of these programs can be potentially life changing.

There are special programs that will allow you to really explore the world, explore yourself and define a new way of life for yourself.

Instructor Biography

Paul Cerco, Travel Expert, Writer & World Explorer

Hi, I am Paul — avid traveler, writer and explorer.

I traveled extensively around Europe and Asia, lived and participated in various international projects in Italy, Sweden, Philippines, Taiwan, Thailand, Russia and others. I am eager to share what I've learned while being on the road for the last few years.

There are many valuable lessons I can share with those who want to travel more and spend less, seek new experiences and live in a more unconventional way.

I've always wanted to be adventurous and creative in my own way and this unwillingness to conform led me to discovering interesting alternatives.

There are various help exchange programs and sponsorship programs which everyone can take advantage of and do amazing things without spending almost any money at all. I lived across continents being sponsored by local governments, communities and individuals to do amazing things — from working on my business ideas in Italy and Sweden to studying meditation in Taiwan and Thailand.
