Travel around the world while your money keeps coming in – this is the dream.

You can roam around the planet while doing the work that you love. It might sound impossible, but it is easy to pull off as long as you have the will to push on.

It’s also possible if you are willing to take on a bit of  a minimalistic gypsy lifestyle – if you want to globetrot, you’ll need to live out of a backpack.

Let us dig deeper into some of the ways to make money while traveling.

Teaching English

If you are a native English speaker, and teaching this language is what interests you the most, then you might not want to miss the opportunity to use your skills to teach other people to learn the language. Job opportunities like this are very common around the world. If this is something you might enjoy doing, then start sending applications to different schools around the world and expect to have a lot of interviews coming your way!

Resort jobs

A lot of resorts around the world usually target staff from different countries. Positions in a restaurant or entertainment department are waiting for you, and this might be your chance to travel to your dream destination. For South Africans, this can get a bit complicated with visa restrictions, so make sure you read up on all the rules and regulations.


Freelancing is probably the easiest way you can earn while traveling. Whether you’re up for programming, web designing, writing, illustration, consulting, marketing, engineering, legal work, or admin jobs, this might be a great opportunity for you to fulfil your dream of working wherever you like. There are a lot of platforms on the internet that connect a lot of freelancers with different clients and companies such as Upwork or Fiverr. You just have to take a chance and improve your skills to meet the demands of these clients.

You can even sell digital products – like photos and articles – on your own website, without needing pitch to editors.

Travel blogging

Travel blogging is a unique way that you can try if you enjoy writing and sharing your travel ideas with a lot of people. It’s not an easy money, but maintaining a travel blog might be a great start to earn while you enjoy all your adventures in traveling around the world.

These are just some of the ways you can try if you want to earn money on the road. You just need to unleash your talents, skills, hobbies, interests, and knowledge to be successful on your journey. Making money while traveling is a new perspective that you are always free to seize.
