How to earn money to travel
8. Show your artDuring the trip through South America I made friends with many people who sold handicrafts on the street and/or in the same hostel where they were staying. What I saw most of them selling were bracelets. I also made friends with a backpacker from Rosario, Argentina, who juggled in bars. He did nightly shows with juggling lights, and in exchange for that he was well paid. If you know how to sing you can do the same, you can go to a bar, restaurant or even a hostel and offer to sing a couple of songs in exchange for money or other things. In fact there are volunteering programs where singing and/or playing guitar is a task you can do in exchange for accommodation, food and more. Another example was when I was volunteering in Guatapé, Colombia, where I met an Argentinian woman who did tattoos on the road. She was volunteering to save on accommodation and food, and her way of traveling and earning money was by tattooing people in different places at a very good price.yoga classes, regional cooking classes or even travelers I met who cut hair in hostels to other travelers, are some examples of people showing their art to earn money while traveling.
How to make money as a backpacker
When traveling the world on a limited budget, of course, the idea of earning money while traveling is going to cross your mind. Earning money on the road will give you the opportunity to travel longer and experience more things along the way.
With Internet access almost everywhere, it has become easier for travelers to earn money while traveling the world. Depending on your skills and how much time you are willing to give, it is not impossible for you to finance your travel expenses no matter how long you want to do it.
Most companies prefer to hire freelancers online, as it’s cheaper for them to do so. And a web developer can earn a lot of money or exchange their services for free hotel stays and travel.
With enough time and effort, you can earn an income with a blog. However, unlike writing articles for other websites, starting your own website requires a larger investment of time and money.
If you want us to help you turn your blog into a platform that generates thousands of visitors, an authoritative personal brand and your first online income, you know you can count on our service.
Ideas to raise money for a graduation trip
Since May 1, 2005, I have been backpacking the world to document the hospitality and daily life of the most unusual destinations through my chronicles. I write travel books to contribute to the nomadic revolution.
First and foremost, I am an advocate of economic minimalism, that is, establishing a healthy relationship with money, generating income according to need and not for the income itself. It is not about seeing money as an enemy but as an ally, as a cosmic agent that we make appear when we want it.
And speaking of Laos, there I learned to do some juggling with pois, and I also wrote this poetry that I read at their shows while Rocío, the juggler of the group, who was from Ramos Mejía, was swinging with fire. Some of the Cyclowns then moved on to the SeaClowns, and they go around Greece in a sailboat doing circus from island to island. I leave you for two minutes with my cyclown friends in person:
Someone says the word bubble and I automatically think of Demian Zen. I name him now, just below the crafts, not to make them run off to imitate Demian, but to show that there are many things besides macramé that can be done. There is no need to be afraid to innovate, even if your craft or skill is not on this list. Before he set out on his journey around the world, Demian and I talked several times. He was afraid of not being able to survive with the bubbles and I, who had already seen him work in front of the Monumento a la Bandera in Rosario, was sure that his trip and his life were assured. But, at first, Demian’s confidence was as flimsy as his bubbles. The point is that he took the plunge… and never came back! He recently wrote to me from an International Bubble Festival to which he was invited in India, all expenses paid, and he is emerging as one of the most avant-garde bubblers in Latin America. A story that proves that to be successful you have to differentiate yourself. I liked his words during a chat we had a few days ago, and that is why I am sharing them:
Careers where you get paid to travel
The question people ask me the most when they see my lifestyle and my travels, (and the question I also asked myself back in the day when I saw other travelers) is “Where do you get the time and money to be able to travel so much and be on the road so often?” The answer is simple, “From working while traveling.”
Many people think that whoever travels a lot is because they have a lot of money, or because they don’t work, or because they are on vacation,… There may be cases where this is so, but there are also many other cases like mine that are not.
For example, if a flight has cost you 60 euros and the trip is for two days, let’s say it has cost 30 euros per day, but if the trip is for two months, it is as if the flight had cost 1 euro per day. In other words, in the long run, costs are reduced.
Another mistaken belief is that to live traveling or travel a lot you need to work on the Internet or have a blog, YouTube channel, Instagram account or something similar. This is not true. There are many people traveling alone that you don’t know about because they don’t share it on the Internet, but they are there.
