How You Can (Nearly) Travel Forever
12. Learn About Travel Hacking
The more you travel the more tricks you learn on the road. It involves a mix of research and experience, but this wealth of knowledge can be used to considerably decrease the cost of your trip.
So you might choose a specific credit card because it can give you air miles with each purchase, or maybe travel insurance for a certain period. If you’re in Bangkok for instance, you can take a cheap train from the airport instead of the overpriced taxis. All these little savings add up over the years.
13. Teach Something You Know
Sometimes, instead of looking for local jobs in the country you’re traveling around, it might be a lot easier to create your own. Many people choose to do a TEFL (Teach English as a Foreign Language) and teach English, but the possibilities are endless.
You could also become a diving instructor and jump from one beautiful spot to another. If you know how to play an instrument or excel on a specific subject, you could potentially work as a private tutor and teach local students.
14. Reflect If It’s What You Really Want
At the end of the day, it’s important to remember that many long-term travelers eventually stop somewhere. Sometimes it’s about yearning to be part of a community, starting a family, or just missing the people back home.
So while you can leave everything behind and go on a decade-long trip, it’s a good idea to think about the next step. It could be that you’ll travel forever, but if you eventually decide you’ve had enough, it’s better to have a plan B to fall back on.
