During college, I took BS Tourism because I know that taking this course will give me the opportunity to see and visit beautiful places in the world. I can be a flight attendant, work on the plane and get a chance to fly & visit different countries, work in a cruise ship and enjoy sailing for few months or become a tour guide or travel agent and get big discount from all hotels and airlines.
But what if profession and your personality didn’t match. Maybe you are like me enjoying being freelancer and being self-employed, managing my own time and being a boss of my own life. I hate having the same routine as waking up early, put on the same uniform, work the same thing the whole day, go home, sleep and repeat the same thing the next day. I love being bold, I love adventure, nature, arts, being a fashionista and make a mess sometimes. haha
Anyways my dream profession is to be a nurse but I knew that it’s not for me, just saying, haha. right now I will not talk more about my dream profession but I want to salute my befriend, Rose who works as a nurse in UAE, taking care and helping to save the life of many people.
There are many other ways to make money while you travel. Here are 5 of the best jobs for people who love to travel:
5. Online Selling
You could import and export anything in today’s society. You’ll have to be entrepreneurial because as we all know that if you have a business and earning good money then it will give you a chance to travel. You can also manage your business online then invest with the good website linked with your paypal or bank and so you can buy and sell stuff like clothes, watches or shoes etc. wherever you are as long as you have your laptop +internet. Experience, attitude, confidence and lack thereof comes in all shapes and sizes. Everybody has to start somewhere.
4. Teach the English Language
Jobs are in abundance, however, you may require certification. It may seem simple, but its one of your best traits and it will allow you to travel the world with ease. Often people forget that working abroad can start working at home. Be an online English teacher get paid then pack your things and hit the road!
3. Photograph and Film Travel
If you’re talented & creative who want to stay on the road full time, a great idea is to get tied up to many film/advertising company and get a chance to travel. Filming and having a photo shoot in a different location is quite an adventure or being part of their art department crew is very interesting.
2. Write About Travel (Blogger/Vlogger)
If you love writing or taking videos and sharing your experience, this can be your full-time career. Get your laptop to connect to the internet then write something informative, providing useful and interesting information. Aside from writing about travel you can also write about fashion and be a fashion blogger, about food, parenting or etc. Anyone and everyone can make a living online.
1. Freelance (my fave)
If you’ve got a talent you can make a living out of just about anything, anywhere.
Why stop there at online business, teaching English, travel writing, photography and filming, you can pretty much freelance anything and travel. In the digital age, we live in it is becoming increasingly common to start up a small company, freelance, and live abroad on the road.
If you are passionate and talented at a niche like martial arts, yoga surf or ski instructor, dancing, singing, painting, make-up, hairdresser, choreographer, busking, DJ, be a talent, model, performer or anything else you can see there’s an interest in, then why not do something you love and get paid to do it. All I can say is take care of your connections and maximize your resources. Remember the saying that “You can always make money but You can’t always make memories”
