How To Keep Your Wallet Full While Traveling
Use your knowledge
If you’re the type that’s happiest doing research, put your knowledge to good use while you’re away and get a job as a guide. It can be as formal as getting a job at a local museum or tour agency, or as simple as making yourself a website and offering small group tours around the city. If you use social media to your advantage, it’s easy to spread the word and get customers. By offering a few different types of tours, you can build up a large customer base, and eventually offer custom tours for different groups.
This is a really popular job, especially with young people. There are plenty of different agencies that can help you find a placement, but most jobs will require TESOL, TESL, or TEFL certification. Many of these agencies use placement advisors who will help you narrow down your country of choice and find a job, for a fee of course.
Work on a farm
If you enjoy being outdoors and have lots of energy for physical work, then WWOOFing might be for you. WWOOF stands for Worldwide Working on Organic Farms, and it’s a hub where people can advertise for help on their farms during peak season. If you’re interested in traveling and don’t mind working for your room and board, then WWOOFing can be a perfect fit. All you have to do is join the WWOOF organization in your country (or countries!) of choice, and search a farm that sounds appealing. Pick fruit or veggies, sort and pack food for sale, or even work in the on-site farm store — there’s a job for every skill level.
