How to Fund Your Travels

Oma H. Barnett

If you’re enjoying being a world nomad, then, as I have in the past, you have probably felt thoroughly depressed as your bank balance starts to dwindle and you know that soon you have to get home and start working again. What if you could fund your travels while travelling? Wouldn’t that be fantastic? The good news is that it is actually possible and almost anyone can do it.

 

I was like most travellers for several years. I had to go back home every two to three months after I ran out of money and find a job as soon as possible. However, now I work from home and I can do this work anywhere and anytime I wish so very soon I’ll be planning my next trip again the next time I won’t be coming home until I want to.

 

If you are an enthusiastic traveller, then you really should consider taking advantage of the Internet. If you want to make money while travelling, the Internet is by far the best way to do it and requires the least effort. All you need is a computer and to make sure that the places you stay and have wireless Internet, unless for some reason you can take a few days off work.

 

If you don’t prefer to use the Internet and travel with a computer, teaching English is one of the best options and indeed the most popular. Nonetheless, the salaries for teaching English can be extremely low depending on where you are travelling. By comparison, the Internet is basically an economy separate from the rest of the world and how much you get paid by the Internet is effectively up to you.

 

Some of the best ways to make money when you are travelling by using the Internet, is to start up a blog and document your travels and offer people useful travel advice. However, this does take time and you certainly can’t expect to start making money overnight. It also requires a lot of time invested to market your website and to write content for it so this can be a big strain on your travels unless you know exactly what you are doing. Nonetheless, if you can get into this, you can make more money than just about any other method and once started, you will be in a position to travel as long as you want and wherever you want.

 

For those of you who do not have any knowledge of Internet marketing or do not want to commit to running your own website or blog, then there are other options. Virtually anyone can get into freelance writing to one degree or another for example. Finding jobs on the freelancer websites is a great way to start and it also requires no initial investment with regards to money and time. If you want to start making money almost immediately, then may just be the answer for you. However, don’t expect to make an enormous amount from it unless you are very good at it or just plain lucky.
