When Susan quit her job in London and set sail off the south coast of England on her beloved sailboat, Isean, she was unaware this spontaneous departure would lead to a three-year journey spanning several countries across the continent.

With only the very basics on board, resourcefulness becomes an unexpected source of joy and contentment. The highs and lows of living in such an extreme way awakens a newfound appreciation for the beauty of her surroundings, for being safe – for just being alive. For all the physical and navigational challenges of her journey, the other side of her story reveals a more important change – an inner journey – that took place along the way.

‘Told with all the invigorating energy of a crisp wind under a cloudless sky.’ Charlotte Higgins, The Guardian
