Travelling the world is a truly eye-opening and enriching experience. This may be a really cliche thing to say, but everybody who has travelled the world will tell you exactly the same thing. Unless you have experienced everything, tried new things and made new friends and foes, how can you truly know yourself and truly know how you want your life to plan out? It’s important to make sure that you are making the most of your time in this world and it doesn’t get much better than exploring.
Although everybody may have the dream of travelling, many sacrifice this for a good job, a home life and their families, whereas others simply can’t afford to do this. For those of you who are letting your cash flow problems prevent you from seeing the world, then continue reading because you’re going to enjoy this. How would you feel if we told you that you can travel the world with very little money in your back pocket, all you need is the know-how.
Refine your craft:
If you have a passion or a skill, this can often be turned into money pretty quickly. Whether you’re a blogger, a photographer, a musician or an artist, you can use your craft as your lifeblood as you explore the world. Many bloggers, for example, have travelled the world using only their blogs as a source of income. There are different ways that people can achieve this, either by selling advertising space on their blogs or charging for guest posts. Although this sounds easy, there is some legwork that you have to do beforehand.
If you want to make the most out of your blog, it’s important to build up a strong readership beforehand, as this will increase the value of the advertising space that you sell on your website. As well as this, you can also build up your website’s authority which will encourage people to pay to write guest posts with a link in the article to your website.
This is something that you will have to build up before you get your website, which means that you will have to do a lot of planning and prep beforehand. Your blog can also double as a portfolio, which will encourage large publications to pay for you to write for them about your travels. All of these avenues are a possibility if you put your mind to it. You never know, on your travels you might find a new place to call home, then applying for an ILR visa could be your next steps. Sometimes even travellers find their perfect hub.
When you are living and travelling with little money, you need to also put your trust into the kindness of others. You will find yourself relying on the community to help to make your dreams a reality. When you are travelling with little money, it’s important to do your research and to get into contact with people who are open to letting travellers stay on their sofa (this is actually a thing!) and do your research about the area. There will be cheap eateries wherever you go, you will just have to do the legwork and hunt them down!
