Travelling is truly one of the best ways that you can spend your time or money.

However, earning cash takes time which in turn can mean you have less of it to spend travelling or doing the things you love.

Unless you’re incredibly fortunate or wealthy, then working is going to be an essential piece of the puzzle in your life, most of us need to work to be able to afford the things we want.

So how can you make this work for you? Thankfully there are ways that you can earn as you travel and combine the two.

Affording Your Adventures: Make Your Work Travel-Friendly


Life is meant to be lived, and if you can live while travelling, all the best to you.

Below are some fantastic ideas for affording your adventures and to make your work travel-friendly!


Start a blog or YouTube channel

Blogging and YouTube are great ways to earn money, doing something you genuinely love.

If your content is all about travel then you can film or write as you go, you’ll never be short of inspiration!

It can take time to get to this stage; you won’t be able to open a blog or YouTube channel and be earning money from it within a week but stick with it and eventually it’s a way you can make a good living.

Between sponsored work and affiliate earnings, you can earn as you go, making money from wherever you are in the world.

All you’ll need is a camera (if you’re recording) and a good quality laptop.

Macs are particularly useful as they’re powerful machines, you can run high-quality editing software on them and everything you’d need to run a channel or blog on the go.

It can take some getting used to at first, for example, if you look at how to screenshot on Mac – Setapp instructions will show you that it’s a little different to a PC. But you’ll quickly get the hang of things.

Consider filming ‘follow me around’ type vlogs as you travel; you could film or write reviews of hotels, restaurants, shows, tourist attractions and much more.

Your channel could even be more from a lifestyle, beauty or fashion angle if you prefer!

Be a remote worker

As a remote worker, you have an employer (and therefore set hours, a set wage and employee benefits); however, you don’t have to go into a physical workplace.

Many remote workers, of course, work from home, but if you love to travel nothing is stopping you from working on the go!

As long as your tasks get completed each day, then you can permanently work from anywhere.

Take your laptop to the beach and work there, download the software you need and work from a train or you could enjoy your days travelling, get back to your hotel/ accommodation and do a few hours each evening before bed.


Why travel

Conduct work in remote places.


Get a job that involves travel

Finally, if you get a job that requires travel or allows you to travel, then this could be perfect if you want to see more of the world.

It could be anything from nursing to airline staff, there are plenty of jobs out there for the adventure in mind.

If you’re at the start of your career (or wishing to change career later on) consider what sort of jobs would allow you to see the world.
