Become a professional travel blogger

It is a known fact that you can make money while blogging. A blog can prove itself to be a valuable source of income. However, you must be patient, because this doesn’t happen all of a sudden. Many successful bloggers recommend being super patient and not to have this objective in mind when starting a blog.

Blogging is about your passion. On a blog, you should write about things that you are passionate about or things that matter to you. Being dedicated is the key. Maybe you will get to write for a big company, or if you are lucky enough, you will get sponsored.

Besides this, writing about places you want to visit, or you already visited may put you in contact with many people. However, a blog is not a primary method of income, but it can prove itself to be a consistent boost if you do it right.

Start a vlog

If you are more into talking than writing, then maybe vlogging is for you. Create a YouTube channel and start monetizing it. Start uploading interesting videos from the places you travel to. Tell the viewers about your adventures and show them the beauty of the places you visit.

Vlogging is a growing trend and if you like sharing stories visually, then you should definitely become a part of it. Moreover, you should know that, although it is easier to make money on YouTube than on a blog, vlogging is also an activity that requires time and dedication. Nothing comes without hard work.


While for many of us this may sound like a dream job, you should know that photography is not for all of us. Making money taking photos while traveling the world sounds amazing, but this makes it also difficult. Being a professional photographer is a job that requires talent, so you should first discover if you really are talented at it.

There is also a big competition because let’s face it, everyone would like to work while traveling for free. Thus, if you think you are good enough, you can give it a shot. Build your portfolio and go.


This job is quite easy to find, especially in the touristy areas. Maybe you find a new bar that is opening, or maybe you see a sign that says: “we are hiring”. Being a bartender can be a good source of income for you, but you should think twice if you are up for the challenge. Bartending can also be a stressful and tiring job.

This is known to be one of the most common ways to make money abroad, especially in African of Asian countries. Japan, for example, pays English teachers very well. There are job opportunities almost everywhere, all you have to do is search. Moreover, while teaching English to different cultures, you also learn more about them.
