Travelling abroad is an amazing experience. You are introduced to new countries, new cultures and new people. Every day there is an adventure waiting to happen. Unfortunately, travel and adventure does not always come cheap. On the contrary, very often it is actually quite expensive and that is why most of us travel once or twice a year at most, on just a week or two of vacation. But wouldn’t it be great if you could travel and earn money at the same time? And I don’t mean earn a few bucks, but a decent amount of money. Well, believe it or not there’s actually a few ways to make that possible and we will tell you how. See our list of ways to earn a lot of money while travelling abroad.
Be a Full-time Vacationer
Well, unlike regular mortals who work hard throughout the year to earn some money for a short travel abroad, these guys earn for living by travelling. Full-time vacationers travel all over the world and thus advise us all about where to go, what to do, which sights to visit, where to stay at or what delicacies to eat, and get paid for doing so. This is a dream come true actually, since these guys are probably the only people in the world who save their money so they could spend it – at home!

Everybody needs to know English today. It is a universal language that connects people from different parts of the world. But still there are many who do not know it well and would like to learn it, which is your chance. In many cases you don’t even need to be certified, you just need to be a native speaker. So if you have the knowledge and the patience to teach someone , search the web and you will find plenty of chances, especially in countries like South Korea, Japan, Thailand or Vietnam, but also in many other places too.
If you are talented for sales and marketing, those skills can help you earn easy money in top tourist locations such as Greece, Mexico, Thailand, the Caribbean etc. Many tourists visit these countries and they usually trust more to salespeople who they can relate with, for example to their countryman. The earning potential in this line of work is huge, so it is definitively worth a try. But, if for any reason, you fail to find your way around in selling business, you can always work on the front desk, in the restaurant or in the activity and entertainment department.
Be a Freelance Designer/Developer
Earning thousands of dollars in a foreign country can be achieved easily if you are one of those computer geeks who completely live in the age of technology. So, if you are capable of building a website, either a simple or more complex one, then you are to become filthy rich. All you need to do is to start looking for clients online, through your friends and acquaintances and soon enough you will be snowed under websites that are to be designed. Moreover, if you can develop an app on iOS, you can organize a course or a school and thus teach others how to start developing their own apps that may bring you money. App developers are being in constant demand and all you need to do is to offer your services on the labor market, even if you are in another country.
Be a Yoga Instructor
One of the most popular side things to do is to practice yoga definitely. This is because people are constantly tense and they work a lot, they do not have much time to spend on long walks or holidays. But either way they have to get rid of a negative energy they have collected during hard working days. Therefore most of them choose to practice yoga and yoga instructors earn a lot of money by showing people how to achieve mental and physical stability and balance. So, if you have practiced yoga sometimes earlier, this is an excellent way to regain your invested money and start earning it through your regular clients.

This kind of job will give you something you might never be able to afford for yourself – an opportunity to visit all glorious places on Earth and to travel round the world plus having your own salary. Of course, working on a cruise ship will get you a taste of a world, but also it will bring you a strong network of people. You can also make your own blog about travelling while on cruise ship and you can give advice to all potential visitors to a certain place. You will definitely have benefits because one of the sites may offer you a job of a travel writer. You can never know what are your limits and capabilities until you try doing what you like and enjoy.
Of course, there are many other ways to earn tons of dollars. You can for instance try busking, selling your art, volunteer work and so on. What is essential is that you need to have a strong will and success will inevitably come. You just need to believe in yourself.
