As a frequent traveler, I often hear people asking how I fund my travels. It’s as if their mind can be easily read. They presume all the globetrotters must have a fortune, or must have dug some gold mine on their ventures. After all, for them it is difficult to even plan out a vacation in a year.
Can travel and working go hand in hand? Absolutely. Of course, you have to risk a huge chunk of your life, known as stability. However, a little organization in your life and a spoon full of ambition and there’s nothing that can stop you from making your travel dreams come true.
If you wish to make money while you travel, here are some helpful tips to consider.
Gone are those days when blogging was only considered a past time. In times that we live, it can easily become your business if you have the passion for it. Everyone wishes to know the tales of travelers that inspires them and helps to plan out their trip. As a travel blogger, you are location independent with no pressures on how and when to work. All you need is a computer and a reliable internet connection and your experiences will speak out to the world.

You’ll have the privilege of traveling to plenty of destinations when people struggle to learn English. For them, communicating in English is a huge milestone, and doesn’t come naturally as it does to many of the first world countries.
You have the gift of language, and that can be transferred into a job wherever you travel. As long as you are a native speaker, you don’t even need certification.
