Everyone wants to take a break from their work life once in a while and go travel. We save money for months and then look for that long weekend holiday to take that leave.
What if, I tell you there are ways you can travel and make money at the same time. You don’t need to worry about taking leaves from office to travel. All you need to do is get out of your comfort zone and start working.
Ways you can Travel and Make Money
Teaching is one of the most effective ways of earning while travelling. Just teach anything that you are good at or have a good knowledge about. It could be any language, musical instrument, yoga etc.
In some countries like China, Japan, South Korea, English is not their first language. So, you can teach them English and have experience for a lifetime. This way you can make money and explore the beautiful city at the same time.
While you are teaching them, you also end up learning a few phrases or words from their language. This makes it easy for you to understand people and their culture better.
This is one of the best ways of earning because you are sharing your knowledge and learning something new. So, you not only get to travel and earn but also learn a new language.
2. Freelance work
This one is for those people who don’t want to go to an office and wants to work from anywhere at any time. If you are one of them then Freelancing is the best alternative for you.
Freelancing is basically trading your skills online, you provide a service online in return for money. You can work from anywhere in the world and get paid.
All you need for this is a laptop, internet and some kind of skill and you are good to go. Design a website, do digital marketing, photoshop work etc and earn money while travelling. There are millions of project online, you just need to find the right project.
Blogging is when you share your experience or write about something on a website. On the other hand, Vlogging is when you make a video and tell your experience in a video and share it online.
Nowadays, many people have started travel blogging and vlogging. They travel, they write about their experience and make money through that. Most of the people who are in this profession are passionate about travelling or writing. Not many are doing this for money.
I would say that don’t just start a blog or a vlog for money because it won’t work in the long run. You need to be passionate about writing, telling a story, only then you’ll be interested in it.
You can also start blogging/vlogging, it doesn’t necessarily need to be a travel blog. It could be anything, just find your interest, pick your niche, register your domain name and get started.
Blogging/Vlogging is something that is not easy at the beginning because you don’t make enough money when you start. But once you have an audience and you have a reach, there is no better way than this to travel and make money. You can start blogging for free on platforms like WordPress, Tumblr, Blogger etc. For vlogging, there is no better platform than Youtube.
If you got a camera and some creative skills then this is for you. Earlier photography was not that big as it is now. You have so many online platforms where you can showcase your work. Instagram is one of the platforms where you’ll see so much of content being posted everyday.
You can either take a freelance project while you’re travelling or you can just click photos while travelling and sell them online. There are some platforms like Shutterstock and Adobe Stock where you get paid for your photographs.
It’s not as easy as it sounds because you need to be creative in this one. You’ll see a thousand of photos of the same place but what makes yours stand out is the point. So, pick up your camera and get those beautiful perspective come out.
