Freelancing is a great way to make some extra money on the side or as a main job. Taking skills you already have in doing things such as editing, writing, transcription, graphic design, music mixing, virtual assisting and others and then creating jobs on ‘gig’ based websites like Elance, People Per Hour,Upwork, Freelancer and Fiverr. On some sites you need to work for your clients and send proposals, but on others people will send you messages to discuss what they need done. Be patient though, and try to get set up and started before you leave for your trip to ensure you already have clients when you hit the road.
Probably THE MOST popular option for travellers. Teaching English is easy, often well paid and accessible to anyone who speaks English as a native language. Some countries will require you to have at least a TEFL or TESOL qualification but others only require the teacher to be a native speaker. Others still will require a degree of some kind (not necessarily in teaching). One thing to expect when teaching English abroad in person is the unexpected – your classroom may be anything from a classy fully equipped new school all the way down to being under a shady tree in some backwater village. You might have top of the line supplies or you might have to make do with sticks, broken crayons and the sand. Without a doubt though, teaching English is not just an adventure but it’s fulfilling as well.
