Wazzup Pilipinas!

Have you ever wondered ‘Can I travel and make money at the same time?’ Because we’ve got great news for you — you can and here are 5 inventive ways how to do it. So get yourself comfortable and check it out!

Teaching English

Probably one of the most popular, but yet not the easiest way, is to use the advantage of being a native English speaker. There are tons of job offers around the world looking for a native speaker who’s ready to teach English. Most importantly, you don’t always need to be a certified tutor, as foreigners are often looking for someone to help them with speaking skills.

What is more, in China, for instance, if you have fair hair and European appearance, you may be considered a native speaker as well, even though you come from Germany, Poland, or France. This is the case when appearance makes a difference and you can benefit from it.

In case you don’t want to have offline lessons you can earn a buck by becoming an English teacher on various online platforms like Italki. This way you can make money in any part of the world and spend it on travelling.

Become The Part of Travelling Culture

To kill two birds with one stone, you may look for resort jobs or jobs as a travel guide. Receptionists, waiters, or hotel/party entertainers — these are the key vacancies that are always in demand. So if you have great communication skills, you’re good with kids and you feel at ease when talking to strangers all day long, why don’t you give this idea a try? This way you’ll be travelling and spending time at hotels around the world.

What is more, you can look for a job as a travel guide. So you’ll have an opportunity to discover new things, communicate with lots of people and make money at the same time.

Travel Blogging

Becoming a travel blogger has its ups and downs. Let’s start with the advantages. As a travel blogger, you’ll be having lots of perks and bonuses from hotels and restaurants. The money you can earn is quite good, as you’ll be advertising various hostels, hotels, sightseeings, etc. On the other hand, the competition in this area is pretty rough these days. It’s not that easy to become a well-respected and a well-paid travel blogger. What is more, this job requires a lot of your time and effort, so one can just get lost in taking photos and shooting videos all the time. This way you’ll just miss enjoying the moment as it is.

Still, if you make it as a good blogger, and find some balance between work and travel — you’ll definitely enjoy this way of seeing the world and making money as a student.

House Sitting

Well, generally, you won’t get paid for it, as you’ll be using someone’s place for free. But come on, you’ll be using someone’s place for free, and it can be anywhere — Greece, Italy, Japan, Australia — you can find a place in any country you want.

This is how you can avoid accommodation expenses and travel around the world. Such gigs can be for a week, a month or even a year. You may google the blogs of people who are expert in house sitting, and learn from the best how to do it the right way.

Work Remotely

In other words, you can travel the world without the necessity to come back to the office the next month. What is more, you don’t need to wake up at a particular time every day. Just create your own schedule and enjoy your life.
