Many people dream of traveling the world and I am one of them. I love to travel and visit new places. I like to learn their language, I like to learn their culture, I like to learn their food habits and indulge in the food they eat. In short, I love being a nomad and take life as it comes. However, lack of financial resources had made my dreams stay just that, dreams. One day I happened to meet a person who had traveled the world and during the course of my conversation with him I came to know that he had traveled the world without the requisite financial resources. After prodding him, I learned that it is possible to travel the world with little or no resources at all. I took copious notes and then decided that the world must know about the ways to earn money while traveling the world. Given below are 5 ways to earn money while traveling the world:
When you travel to one place, learn about the history of that place and then use that knowledge to lead tours for tourists from your country or other countries. For example: if you travel to France, you can take in the culture, the food, the sights and then when you plan to move to the next country, you can use your knowledge and earn some money. Just imagine taking a group of tourists around Paris, or leading them inside the Louvre or even taking them to Champagne country. It is an exciting job but getting a gig is not that easy, you need to persevere to take tours along. If you partner with tour agents, you can get gigs. Some people even do the guide work for free and make money through tips, thought working through tour agents is better. Save money and then move on to your next destination.
Many countries want native English speakers to teach in their land. If you want to earn money while traveling then you can make decent money teaching English. If you have a TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certification you can get jobs easily. Countries in Asia, Latin America and even in Europe require teachers of the English language. You can teach English in such countries; make your money and move on to the next city or country.
Become an Au Pair:
If you love kids, then you can think of becoming an Au Pair. The work of an Au pair is not easy. It involves little children, so you should be committed and caring. You get to stay with a nice family, you get to stay with kids, you get to visit the country and make money in the bargain. What better way to earn! Once you have saved enough you can move to your next travel destination.
Work on a Cruise Ship:
If you love traveling and if you do not have the money to pay for it, then nothing beats working on a cruise ship. Though the pay may be on the lower side, you get accommodation and you also get to travel for free. You can visit exotic places. If you have the experience you can even take the passengers on tours of such places. Some tours are seasonal, and during off season you can move to other cruise ships and go to other interesting places. Or you have the option of working on a cruise ship; reaching your destination, working there and then moving on to your next destination.
Become a Travel Blogger:
There are many bloggers who love to travel and have created travel blogs and made a lot of money. However, becoming a travel blogger is not easy. To become a successful travel blogger you need to first love traveling, next you should be ready to spend a lot of money because you will not be making money any time soon. You need to build your network. You need to have followers; you need to utilize social media well. You need to post regularly and the most important is that you need to post something imaginative, something that people will like. It should not be similar to other travel blogs, you need to create a brand as a travel blogger and for that you need to be unique. Your travel blogs and photos should inspire people to subscribe to your blog and keep returning to read your posts. Once you have dedicated visitors to your blog, the money will pour. People may ask you to visit a nearby place and ask you to review it, you should be willing to do it too. You should keep your audience engaged and only then you will make money. You should keep writing about your experiences to make money.
