Start a Travel Blog

A travel blog/vlog is an opportunity to record and share your travels with the world. However, it can also be a source of income as one of the ways to pay for your travel. By displaying affiliate ads on your blog/vlog and generating page views (readers and fans), generate money through ad revenue.

Of course, getting enough views is the hard part. You don’t have to travel to far-flung places — although you certainly can. However, your content does need to be engaging, as well as informative and entertaining.

WordPress is the most popular blogging platform, while YouTube is the most popular vlogging platform.

Organize Your Tours

Another option to consider could be to host your travel tours. This could be anything from a multi-stop vineyard coach tour across France to a mountain-guided tour through the Himalayas. Hosting a tour does require you to know the places you’re taking people. You’ll likely need to arrange transport and accommodation on their behalf.

Think about what kind of tour you would enjoy. In many cases, it’s best to tap into your passions. Adventure tours, historical tours, and food/wine tours are some of the most popular options.

Cater on the Go with a Food Truck

If you have experience in catering, why not consider starting your own food truck business? You could take your food truck across the country and possibly even to other countries where you can serve customers at events or licensed parking spots.

To start this business, you’ll need to first invest in a truck and then convert it for catering use. Invest in all the right tech to run your business remotely – this wireless credit card terminal available here could help you to accept payments on the go.

Other important things to consider include insurance and licensing, and these may vary from country to country. Make sure to research all of this.

Freelance Copywriter

Copywriters write various paid content ranging from blogs to press releases. While they often have deadlines, the work can be done flexibly at any time of the day.

As a freelance copywriter, you’ll take on your workload and set your working times. All you need is a laptop and internet connection to get started. This makes it the perfect job for traveling as you can work from pretty much any location.

Freelance Graphic Designer

Similar to freelance copywriting, freelance graphic design allows you to set your work schedule. Similarly, all you need is a laptop and internet connection to work, so you can take on projects from anywhere in the world, traveling to new locations and making money as you go.

Travel as an Interpreter

Being fluent in a foreign language could allow you to travel to a country that speaks that language and work as an interpreter or translator. You may be able to take on small jobs as you travel around. Alternatively, you may be able to travel with people on business trips and may need an interpreter to help them when going into various meetings.
