How To Keep Your Wallet Full While Traveling
Start a travel blog or channel
Sure, you might not make money at first, but if you build up your website with beautiful pictures and great content, it won’t be long before you’re able to monetize your work. Start small. Write a few articles, film, and edit some quick, catchy videos, then run them by a trusted friend or colleague and ask them what you could do to improve. As long as your content is fun and original, you won’t find it hard to build up a readership.
Get a job with great perks
There are tons of jobs out there that enable you to travel and make money at the same time. It’s all about figuring out your priorities and searching for a job that fits that criteria. Flight attendant is a popular one as you’ll literally be flown around the world, and for your off-days, there are great perks like discounts (up to 90%) on flights. If you’re not crazy about being in the air all the time, find a job at a hotel or hostel. They often offer employees the opportunity to transfer to another hotel in a different city, and for your vacations, you’ll get a great deal on your accommodations.
Pick a transferable skill
There are tons of jobs that are required worldwide. With a little research, you can easily pick up a job in your new city of choice, and make enough money to fund travel to your next location. A few jobs that work really well for this are nurse, bartender, photographer, and yoga instructor. There are tons of other examples, but these are some of the easiest jobs to get abroad. They all pay a steady wage, which can give some much-needed stability to your budget.
Even if regular employment isn’t your thing, you can use your skills, like massage therapy or music, to pick up some gigs while away from home. As long as you’re comfortable in the local language, it’s easy to put up advertisements and take in some occasional clients to give your bank account a boost.
