Work your way around the world.
Many travellers pick up work as they travel around the world. It ranges from doing what they did at home to trying something totally different.
You could end up picking fruit and vegetables in Australia, being a nanny in London, supervising kids as a camp counsellor in the USA, working in a chalet in the Canadian snow fields, sailing the world as crew on a yacht or cruise liner, busking in Europe, Teaching English in Asia or South America, selling jewellery in a market in Morocco, write a travel blog or be a digital nomad. The list is endless…….Check out our work blogs for inspiration.
