One thing people always ask me is what's the best way to make money when travelling and how much money do I need to start in the first place. The truth is if you save enough for a one way flight to... Anywhere... then the rest is easy. During my travels I have done so many random jobs from picking eggplants in Australia to potato farms in Canada to bartending in the Middle East but since my travels started, more and more websites and ideas have come about to make it een easier for you to land yourself a job.
If you are in the right ages category generally between 18-35 you can even pay a company such as USIT to do it all for you. For first time travellers this is great but personally you can save a fortune by organising things yourself which I slowly learned. There are a few handy websites to keep on hand if you are in the midst of planning a trip and you can land yourself a job or even just good connections before your flight. Some of these include:
Other options are too go online to various classified websites such as Gumtree, Craigslist or Kijiji to scope or the job opportunities in the countries you desire and contact job offers directly that way. www.gumtree.com
Another option that I would regularly check up on was www.jobs.goabroad.com
It is also an option to travel abroad without a job and as in hostels along the way if they are taking volunteers (I occasionally did this to save money along my travels). If you have a specific skill or trade you can by all means use this during your travels to earn a wage or to just trade for full board/food & accomodation. I have met so many people around the world who have been travelling long term like me and they use the same such websites to make their journey last longer. It is always easy to keep travelling once you know these options and you can even study as you travel like I did. I started my recent two year trip around the world, training to be a yoga teacher in India and finished that same trip with my advanced training in the same school back in India. It is always good to have trades like this to keep you travelling and gaining new experiences and no doubt I'll be using most of my qualifications in Vancouver this year.
Please feel free to post feedback below or on the Facebook page if you have any questions do the same.
Happy Travels!! And don't work too hard 😉
