Ways to make money while traveling

This is a Hipmunk post from Jodi Ettenberg of Legal Nomads.

One of the questions I received often about my life of travel and work is how. How does one pick up and travel and then fund continuing travels? A valid question and travel blogger Earl from Wandering Earl has tackled it head on in a recent post. Says Earl, “here on the blog I’m always making the claim that you can make money and travel much more easily than most people think. But yesterday I realized that I should probably back up that claim with some actual examples.”

While the suggestions are not for everyone (not all of us can teach a musical instrument) he does go through the list of what’s available if you are creative in what you can offer. E.g.

Cafe/Restaurant Work

Website Design

Teach Musical Instruments

Teach Any Language

For his full list, see here.

I’d also include checking HelpX for work exchanges that trade accommodation and food for services, as well as WWOOFing for farm work in exchange for lodging and food.

For those less interested in trading but want to do freelance work or writing, Shannon O’Donnell also has some good resources here.
