Long List Of Possible Jobs For You When Traveling

Long List Of Possible Jobs For You When TravelingWhether you take several small trips each year or if you are planning on taking a long one, you may be wondering if there are any ways for you to make money while traveling.

If you do decide to work while you are traveling, don’t forget to learn more about whether you need a travel visa and how to go about getting one before you start working.

You don’t want to get caught and get in trouble, as many countries, of course, take this very seriously.

Work at a resort or a hostel.

There may be a few resort or hostel jobs out there for you. You may be even able to exchange work for your room.

Work on a farm.

I have heard of a few people working on a farm in exchange for free room and board. You may have to help out on their farm such as picking food, cleaning up, and so on.

Teach english in a foreign country.

This is definitely more of a job if you plan on staying in a place for a long period of time. If you only plan on staying for a few weeks of a few months, then teaching English is probably not for you. Usually you will need a four year degree in most countries to do this and to get a visa.

Work at a restaurant.

There are some restaurant jobs that may work for you if you plan on staying in a country for a little bit longer. You may be able to find a waitress/waiter job, hosting position, a bartender, and so on.

Work online.

There are probably hundreds of different online jobs that you can try for when you are traveling. What is great about working online is that you can probably travel to wherever since all you most likely need is a laptop and a good internet connection.

Online jobs that you could get include:

  • Write online.
  • Start a blog.
  • Graphic design.
  • Blog design.
  • Become an affiliate marketer.
  • Become a virtual assistant.

Do you have a job that allows you to travel? Or do you try to work as you go?

 

Everything You Need To Know About Cruises

Everything You Need To Know About CruisesIf you want an amazing vacation on a budget, usually going on a cruise is your best bet. I often see 4 or 5 day cruises going for less than $400 per person.

Usually you can visit many different countries during your trip all for one price. Cruises also make for easier traveling because the cruise takes care of transporting you from country to country.

Here are common cruise questions:

Can I get on the internet?

I wouldn’t exact count on being able to get on the internet when on a cruise. It is usually expensive, and not as quick as you would probably like. I think it would be at least a little bit hard to work from a cruise if you needed internet.

Usually internet aboard a cruise ship is around 75 cents per minute.

What kind of clothing should I bring?

The type of clothing that you bring depends on where you are visiting. You will want to bring clothes for when you are inside the cruise ship. You will want at least one nice outfit for the formal dinner on the cruise ship, maybe some casual dinner clothes and then outfits for any excursions that you are going on.

What does the price cover?

This is a very common question. The price that you pay for your cruise covers your room (inside rooms are usually cheapest), the food, and certain beverages (usually alcohol is not included). You should ask your cruise line to make sure though if you do have any questions. Usually the pools are free as well.

Shore excursions are not free, and neither are the salons on the cruise ship.

Are tips included?

Some cruise ships allow for tipping, while others do not. Some cruise ships even allow for you to do all-inclusive tipping, where you just prepay a certain amount before you leave for your trip.

Other miscellaneous tips:

  • Make sure you bring your passport. If you are planning to leave your home country when you are on a cruise ship, then you may not even be able to board without your passport.
  • Always know whether there is a dress code or not.
  • Get foreign cash in advance if you can.

Common Excuses For Why You Can’t Travel

Common Excuses For Why You Can't TravelAll the time I hear others say that they want to go on a trip (whether it be a week, a few weeks or a few months) and how it is a dream of theirs. Then, they follow up that statement with a bunch of reasons about why they can never go on a trip. It makes no sense to me!

Here are common excuses I hear about why a person can’t travel.

I don’t have vacation time.

Okay, I sort of understand this one. I worked one job as a manager for over five years, and I never once earned any vacation time. I don’t know why, but the owner just never gave me any even though I was her best worker (I’m not just saying that, I honestly was).

However, I changed that though. Since I knew I wanted to travel, I found my next job which allowed for vacation time. It wasn’t a lot, but it was around 3 weeks a year, which is better than nothing. I then switched to something else and now I am location independent and I can travel whenever I want to.

What I’m saying is, if you really wanted to travel, you would make it happen. If you want to do round the world travel but don’t have much time, I know someone who traveled to 13 countries in 40 days, and she had a blast.

I don’t have the money.

This is a very common excuse. The thing is, traveling doesn’t have to only be for the rich. There are many options for you to be able to afford travel. You could visit cheaper places (such as Thailand), stay in cheap places (such as hostels), work as you go, or save up for a year (or a few years).

The great thing about travel is that each person can individualize it. Yes, you can spend $10,000 in one month by traveling, but I also know of people who stay on a budget of around $1,000.

Yes, you may have to save for quite some time, but if it is worth it to you, then you will find a way to make it work.

I’ll get kidnapped.

I hear this all the time. The chance of you getting kidnapped is probably very low. Just like if you were in your home country, be careful. If you wouldn’t go down a dark alley where you live, would you go down one in a foreign country?

I have no one to join me.

You can travel alone! It is really that simple. Who says that you need to travel with someone? I’ve met numerous people on my trips who were solo travelers, and they were loving it. It helps you get out of your shell and learn more about yourself.

What excuses are you using?
