Washington D.C. – Lots of Pictures!

In 2012, I went to D.C. for work, and extended the trip by a couple of days so that we could see everything. Luckily Wes was able to join me. D.C. was a lot of fun and we were able to do everything pretty cheap. We used public transportation for everything, which was interesting since we are from St. Louis and are horrible and total newbies when it comes to public transportation and knowing where we are.

Pictures from Puerto Rico

Back in August of 2011, we went to Puerto Rico. It was a lot of fun and it was also one of our first “real” vacations. The food was great and it was beautiful everywhere. We weren’t in Puerto Rico for long (I believe it was only 3 or 4 days), but it definitely made an impact on our lives!

More information on this trip soon!

You can talk about the scenes or the feeling of traveling to each destination and make sure that your content is more engaging and appealing for readers. You can create blog posts, post regularly and earn money out of these.

I will say that starting a travel blog is NOT a way to get rich quick. There are many, many travel blogs out there and many of them do not make a single penny.

Consider Seasonal Jobs 

There are several seasonal jobs offered in vacation towns, especially during peak season. You can grab this opportunity and earn money while you are out by being a seasonal worker at resorts and/or national parks.

Engage in Other Online Jobs 

Even when traveling, you can engage in web design or freelance online jobs. If you have technical skills you can work while traveling by being a technical editor. You can also be an online researcher and get compensated for research work completed.

If you have the desire to work while traveling and earn a significant amount of money from it, you can also consider being a language teacher or tutor and conduct online tutorial. If you are equipped with the knowledge, skills and credentials, you can also offer business coaching and the like.
