You don’t need a PENNY to travel!
Yes, that’s right, not one dime!
Reading this in a practical sense, I’m sure it sounds completely bogus! Down right insane! I know.. But, if you look a little deeper, what I’m trying to say is, you don’t have to be rich or wealthy to travel.
I do a bit of traveling myself. More domestic travel than international travel, but that’s all about to change very soon! 🙂 Although 90% of my travel is domestic, I am associated with numerous people who travel quite often. Africa, Europe, Asia, the UAE – you name it!
On Facebook I shared an article about Brooke Saward. A 23-year-old girl from Australia who’ve made a living out of traveling. If you want to read more information about Brooke’s story, click the link below. BUT BEFORE YOU DO, check out my list of five things you can do to travel more.
Because this blog post is solely directed towards sharing tips on how to travel, I’m only going to share this one piece of information that may help the more inquisitive thinkers, when it comes on to traveling.
Find a platform, build it up, and let it be the vehicle that takes you around the world.
Alright, let’s get to it! For those interested, I’m going to show you how to add some stamps to your passport!
1. WWOOF -Work exchange on organic and sustainable properties
Do you enjoy the outdoors? The farm life? Well WWOOF is for you! WWOOF is an opportunity to work on organic farms around the world for free food and housing. For at least 2 days you are expected to work 6 hours per day. After those six hours and two days, the rest of your time is yours! You can explore whatever country you’re in at your own discretion.
2. Teach English Abroad
This is a go to for a lot of people! I have a lot of friends and associates who have taught aboard and actually some of them stay aboard after they teach ( the flights are cheaper aboard).
Most opportunities require that instructors are TEFL certified which is earned after a series of coursework is completed to become an effective English Second Language instructor. Salary for teaching abroad is based on the living standards of where you are teaching, but depending on the program you go through, some of your living expenses like free housing. In countries like the Middle East such as Jordan, and the United Arab Emirates as well as Japan and South Korea, the salary rate for TEFL teachers is known to offer the best paid TEFL Instructor salaries.
3. Au Pair
For travelers who love working with young children, there are families who are looking for Au Pairs to help take care of their children. Families may look for an English-speaking nanny so that their children can improve their English-skills. As an Au Pair you should expect to receive free room and board as well as some payment. The company Au Pair World helps connect host families with potential Au Pairs through profiles which you can browse through by country and gets you in touch with a potential match. What you would get out of it is essentially an opportunity to immerse yourself within the culture and community and learn the customs and traditions.
4. Network Marketing
There are plenty of products out there that you can market to make extra money, if not a FULL-TIME income to fund some extra travel time.
- Total Life Changes you can contact Dayna Laureano or Ray Robinson via Facebook for details.
- Herbalife you can contact Timothy Phillips via Facebook for details.
- Empower Network you can contact Alex Clermont via Facebook for details.
Network marketing is one of the oldest, yet newest ways people have been creating and supplementing their full-time income.
To keep it short and simple, those are a few ways you can travel without necessarily breaking the bank! Please, if you know of any other tips and/or techniques to travel the world without needing a penny, PLEASE DO SHARE! 🙂
