Work and Travel the World
Many people pick up work as they travel the world. It ranges from doing what they did at home to trying something totally different to being a digital nomad. As LWPT sees it, there are 3 categories.
- People that head overseas on a working holiday to a specific country and do what they did at home or try a different work opportunity. For example, many Australians go to the UK on a working holiday and pull pints of lager in a bar. To know more about the working holiday visa and or work and travel visa click here.
- Individuals who choose a particular type of work to take them around the world like getting a job on a cruise ship or busking their way around the world.
- Travellers who are working as digital nomads where they work remotely or on-line. This work then funds their travels.
