Ways To Make Money To Travel The World…
Travelling around the world and discovering different cultures is one of the best life experiences that you can have, but you do require the funds to be able to do it. So unless you have a large savings account you need to look at the different ways to make money to travel the world, to see which ones could work for you.
Recently I wrote a post explaining How To Start A Travel Blog and it got me thinking about all the things that I have done to earn money over the years while experiencing different countries.
Below are just some of the ways to make money to travel the world that I have either used or come across…
This is probably one of the jobs that practically every traveller does at some point either in an actual school or online and I’ve had my share of teaching English to students online. There are several different companies that hire people to teach English to different nationalities, though those in the Chinese market seem to be the most popular at the moment.
Some companies do require you to have a degree and be either from the UK or USA though not all of them and there are several that will consider non-nationals and those who hold only a TEFL certificate. If this is something that interests you check out this blog by TEFL International

Create Your Own Website
I’ve already covered how to start a travel blog and get paid for your efforts but you can create a website for absolutely anything you want. You could choose your own niche to market or use the website as a portfolio of any skills that you have, in order to help you get clients.
If you are going to create a website around travel or your chosen niche it will take some time and effort before you are earning a regular income from it. So you either need to get started well before you first jet off, or consider also doing some freelance work to begin with.
However once you start getting traffic and then the sales are coming in you have the best way of earning a regular residual income wherever you are in the world and you are your own boss!
