Earn money while travelling: Why not? (P3)
There are 12 tips left. We are sharing you all of our experience and notes. Hope that you could take notes and find out what you should and should not before travelling. Thank you very much!
12. Teach Yoga, Dancing or Anything really!
If you’re passionate and talented at a niche skill like yoga, tango dancing or anything else you can see there’s an interest in, then why not do something you love AND get paid to do it!? Whether its learning and teaching yoga in Bali or becoming a dance instructor in Argentina, the opportunities are truly endless.
Lets get back to basics — one of the most popular jobs for travellers is pretty easy to come by. So long as you have the working visas required, you are almost guaranteed to find a job in a bar somewhere. Leaving home with previous experience will of course help but is by no means necessary!
10. Become a Surf or Ski instructor
Another popular choice for travellers is to take a seasonal job as a surf or ski instructor. Popular destinations include Canada or the French Alps for those who love winter, but if you’re up for a warmer climate why not consider teaching surf lessons!? There are plenty of jobs available, a great resource to start at would be seasonworkers.com.
9. Become a Yachtie
If you’re wondering what its like to live and work on a superyacht, check out this interview with a yacht stewardess which explains it is indeed as glamorous and glorified as it sounds. Yachties are paid a generous sum of money to work crazy long hours and with crazy demands, but it does indeed sound like an unreal lifestyle to live!
8. Work for an International Hotel Chain
Often people forget that working abroad can start with working at home. If you can land a job in an international hotel chain, there are oodles of opportunities to transfer to other hotels within the company and work while you travel.
Back to basics again — if you’ve got a talent you can make a living out of just about anything, anywhere. Can you hold a tune? Or have a party trick that is likely to entertain the masses? Busking is one of the simplest ways to make money, though the income can be unpredictable and sometimes dismal. However if you love your art…!!
6. Website Design
We live in a pretty exciting digital era — anyone and everyone can make a living online. One of the areas with oodles of potential and scope for employment is website design. Its as easy as learning to code, being creative, and putting yourself out there! This is an exciting time to start up a small business and offer your skills online — don’t be afraid to give it a shot!
5. Become a Travel Agent
If you love travel so much that you can see yourself booking holidays for others, this job is the right one for you! Its an added bonus that you’ll be invited on famil trips where you’ll travel for free, as well as receiving heavy discounts for your own holidays.
4. Become a Bollywood Film Star
Sounds crazy, huh? It’s surprisingly common to star as a Westerner in a Bollywood film! According to sources, you merely make your way to India, get spotted, and say yes to star in a Bollywood film!
3. Photograph & Film Travel
If you’re talented in the creative department and want to stay on the road full time, a great idea is to pick up a camera, train yourself, perfect your craft, and sell your images/videos online. While it will require an initial small investment, the potential to make this your full time career is for most too good an opportunity to pass
2. Write About Travel
A personal fave (as a full time travel blogger) and let me say this straight off the bat — more attainable than you might think!!! I get tonnes of emails about where to start as a travel blogger and the best piece of advice I can give is to just start! We all have to start somewhere. When I first began travel blogging I knew I wanted to make it my full time career, but I had no idea how. So I just started writing, editing, adjusting my approach, and over time improving the way I write, what I write about, and how I connect with my readers around the world. Someone once told me that it was worth more in the long run to work for free at something you love until you get paid to do it, rather than to do something until you love it. Those words stuck with me and after a few months writing for free, I was starting to make (small amounts) of money from travel blogging. Over time I have been fortunate enough to make this my full time career! You can read more about my story here.
1. Freelance (anything)
But why stop there at travel writing, photography and videography… you can pretty much freelance anything and travel as a result! In the digital age we live in it is becoming increasingly common to start up a small company, freelance, and live abroad on the road. Many small companies travel full time and work from coffee shops — its some kind of small revolution going on out there!
