I love traveling. I also love money. Unfortunately, the two don’t always go together as nicely as I’d like! Sometimes, if you want to travel the world, you’ve got to be willing to work along the way. Twenty years ago, it was a lot harder to do this. Now, with advances in technology, it’s a very realistic possibility for anyone who wants to give it a try. Here are some examples of jobs you can do while traveling.

If you’re visiting a foreign country, you’re opening yourself up to opportunities that many aren’t qualified to do. I’m talking, of course, about translating. You can search online for all the translator jobs in the local area, and make some good cash along the way. One of the roadblocks might be the length of time you’ll need to stay employed, though. As a long-term option, this is a very lucrative one.
Arguably the best way to travel anywhere in the world while earning an income is to be a freelance writer. There are loads of opportunities available if you look online, and most of them aren’t bound to any specific country or region. For example, Allwriting is hiring writers, and they employ writers from multiple countries. You’re going to need some excellent skills to be a freelance writer, but if you’ve got them, this is a great opportunity.

If you’ve worked in a position of expertise in the past, you can utilize that skill in other countries. Why not set up as a consultant and start advertising your services all over the internet? The key to this is learning how to brand yourself. You want to create a following, so that when you’re in a different country, you can easily find work opportunities. Put yourself out there, and you’ll find ways to put your knowledge to good use.
Maybe you’ve got music running through your veins? In that case, why not take to the streets and show off your talents across the world?! Sounds fun, doesn’t it? The downside to being a busker is that you can’t expect to get paid too highly. However, it’s arguably the most fun option on this list. Sitting in the sun all day and playing music doesn’t sound too much like work to me!

The traditional routes are always open to you, and getting work in a bar or restaurant is normally fairly easy. The biggest barriers to entry are going to be any language differences. If you can get past them, there are going to be many different opportunities available to you. Again; utilize the power of the internet. You’ll find adverts online for lots of different positions, making the job search that much easier.
Don’t be under any illusions that these jobs will be easy. You’ll be expected to put in a lot of hard work, and when you’re traveling, the days can be very tiring! Don’t take on more than you can deal with. You’re still there to have fun; don’t forget that!
