Travelling is such fun we wish we can have non-stop vacations! If only we can do it without going broke. Usually, we save up some generous amount of money in our travel fund to be able to afford a decent vacation. Once we go back home, it may feel like we’re back at the first level and we need to work hard again so we can travel once more.
You may see a couple of your social media friends who may seem to travel all year-round and you wonder, “How can they sustain that kind of enchanting lifestyle?” Ask no more because today, we are dropping seven ways to generate money while you travel around the world.
1. Travel for free and learn about farming (WWOOFing).
If you’re into volunteering, it would be nice to use it while you travel. World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farming or WWOOF connects volunteers with organic farm owners, farmers, and gardeners who are looking for some volunteer farm work in exchange for food, accommodation, and new farming knowledge.
The organization has a vast network of organic farmers all around the globe. This allows volunteers to travel and receive free home and food while they help grow the organic agriculture.
2. Teach English online.
With the continuous rise of various online and mobile job opportunities, travelling while working is made even more possible. Out of all the vast role choices out there, teaching the English language will be the best role you can get that you can enjoy, spend little time with, and earn some decent money from.
Many people around the world are desperate to learn how to use the English language. You may either teach online or in person, but both will guarantee some proper income to get you going while you travel.
3. Share your experiences to the world through blogging/vlogging.
Sharing your travel experiences through blogs and video blogs may be your extension hobby on top of travelling. Additionally, you can earn some bucks through many ways such as advertisements. Starting out might be a little too hard since there are millions of existing blogs and vlogs out there. To overcome this, be sure to post high-quality content and be consistent in doing it.
4. Write a book.
If you have a passion for writing, you can consider writing your own book and publishing them through Amazon. You can write about almost all genres but some of the most-sought after genres are young adult, new adult, romance, thriller, and horror. You may not see cash flowing to your account really quick after finishing a book but the income will eventually build up.
5. Trade cryptocurrencies.
Crypto market is a free market that can offer huge profit opportunities to anybody. However, since most cryptocurrencies are operated with little to no regulations, increasing its investment risk level. If you are an aggressive investor, you may try trading cryptocurrencies as you travel.
Most people say that cryptocurrencies will play a huge role in the future and it might just be the case. For example, way back 2009, a crypto called Bitcoin is worth basically nothing. As time passes by and more people keep utilizing Bitcoin, its value surged and is now valued around $5,000.
6. Consider putting up an online store or an Amazon store.
If you’re the merchant or entrepreneur-type of person, you can consider entering the world of ecommerce to earn some income to fund your travels. You may build a personalized website to present your store and products or you may utilize Fulfilment by Amazon program. The former may need you to have a physical warehouse and accounts with shipping carriers, but you can man it virtually. If you don’t want to be bothered with building websites, you may sign up for a seller account in Amazon and enroll for its Fulfilment by Amazon program where you’ll only worry about what products to sell and where to source them from.
7. Trade or invest in stock market.
If you think no one gets rich through stock trading, go ask Warren Buffett. Kidding aside, learning how to do stock trading may feel overwhelming with so much information in the internet. You do not need to hop immediately and learn the Benjamin Graham principles, but you can start learning from beginner-friendly sites such as Investopedia.
Once you’re confident that you learned something through research, engage yourself and invest a little amount. This will test you if stock trading is the right way for you to invest money and earn from it in the future. You can always do it on your free time when travelling.
You can now enjoy unlimited travels now that you’re aware of more ways to generate money while travelling. We advise you to try all these out and pick out the best ones that are in line with your passion and interest! Happy earning and travelling!
