Traveling is a passion shared by a significant number of people. There is the wonder, the beautiful scenery, culture festivals, monuments, architecture and food you can’t enjoy at home. The only way to make traveling better would be to make it profitable, instead of an expense. Luckily there are a few ways you could start a new career if traveling is your calling.
Do you have a place in the world you absolutely adore? Do you know a lot about its history, monuments, buildings and sites? Then the job of your dreams is being a tour guide. To be perfectly frank, pay varies from one place to another, and there is no guarantee that you will have a horde of visitors every single day, but this occupation will help you visit your favorite sites again and again, while sharing your passion with people all over the world.
It requires a person of amazing organizational skills to be a travel consultant. This is not the same as a travel agent, a person who books your trip and accommodation. A travel consultant is like a fixer of sorts. They know the ropes when it comes to finding a good place to stay, the documents you might need and a number of other issues you would never think of yourself.
This is a special segment where will try our best to give you some idea as to what you can do while traveling that is not connected to traveling itself. Bear in mind that these are just suggestions, and that the efficiency of this enterprise depends on your income and destination.
If you can afford it, you don’t have to be in the office all the time to make money for your company. This is especially true if you are a CEO, or the head of the company. If you pack your laptop, tablet, mobile internet, and smartphone, you can work from almost anywhere in the world. As long as you stay away from deserted locations, you can close deals while sipping a cocktail in Hawaii, relaxing in the hot springs in Japan, or enjoying the Carnival in Brazil.
Creative writers, journalists and restaurant critics don’t have to stay in their country all the time. The fact of the matter is that sometimes it is better if they don’t. You can give your reviews of the local restaurants, report on the political and economic climate of a country, or simply enjoy the fact that you can do your job from anywhere in the world, as long as you respect your deadlines. With the internet and mobile technology, writing abroad has never been easier.
Maybe writing is not your style, or your medium of choice. In that case, we suggest taking on vlogging, especially if you already have a faithful audience. What you need is a camera and covering your travel expenses, and you’re good to go. This is not the most stable business, however, so don’t expect to be able to do this full time.
