3 Ideas For Working While You Travel

Everybody loves to travel and we all feel disappointed when we have to return to normal life again, but you just have to deal with it. Some people really can’t deal with it though and they want to travel all of the time, so they decide to make it their lifestyle, rather than a once a year treat. If you’re going to travel as a lifestyle and always be on the move, work is one of your biggest challenges. If you’re going to be able to travel constantly, you need to find a way to earn money while you’re doing it. These are some of the best ways to earn money while you’re travelling.

Teaching English

There are plenty of countries abroad where there is a need for people that can teach English as a foreign language. In some countries, they require you to have a degree of some kind before you can teach, but there are plenty of places where you just need a TEFL (teaching English as a foreign language) qualification. You can find these positions in a lot of different countries, but most of them are in Asia. If you haven’t travelled Asia before and you want to take an extended trip, teaching English is a great way to do it.

Ski Resorts

Ski resorts are one of the most popular work opportunities for people that want to travel the world, especially for people that do seasonal work. If you’re working at a beach resort, for example, you’re not going to have much work in the winter months so a lot of people head over to a ski resort. France is one of the best places because you can stay in a beautiful resort like the Meribel Chalet Lapin Blanc and work while you’re out there. There are a few different options for work at a ski resort. There are plenty of bars and restaurants where you could look for work or you could get qualified as a ski instructor and do that for work as well.


One of the most popular ways that people make money when they’re travelling long term is to start a travel blog. It’s ideal because you can do it from anywhere and your travel experience gives you lots of great content to post. When you first start on your travel journey, you should just write a diary of your activities and take plenty of photos, then you can start posting it on a blog. However, don’t expect it to blow up overnight and sustain your travel plans. It’s going to take you a long while to build a big enough following to start earning a full-time living from your blog. That’s why you’ll need to look into other ways of earning money to start with and then you can gradually work less in other areas as you increase your income from the blog.

Working while you travel is a great way to get out of the boring 9 to 5 and turn travel into a lifestyle.
