Full time travelling isn't a very lucrative job when it comes to wealth and/or power, so if you have thought that through and still want to go ahead. The concept of full-time travel has captured the popular imagination for several years now, while some people are critical of this way of life, others are inspired by it. If you want to travel full time, then it’s almost given that you’re worried about the whole money situation. Here are some tips for the full time travellers.
1. Join tours and travels in company as a travel guide
You can join in commercial companies and work as a travel guide, taking groups and/or individual customers with you to various places and countries. The only caveat here is that to risk repeating the destinations till they get overly familiar and boring.
2. Look at Cruising / Boating
Many travelers hear the siren song of the seas, and choose to buy the boat and live life on the water. Sailing is a better way to go, as you can limit your fuel costs as long as you’re not in a hurry to get anywhere. If you learn to do your own maintenance, live-aboard sailing and it can be surprisingly affordable.
3. Owning a bouquet of sim cards
Staying connected is a priority for the traveller and that's the first counter one looks for at airports. Being on the go often means that it's handy to keep the stash of different sim cards on the ready. It goes without saying that the rest of us don't carry a bunch of sim cards in the wallet.
4. Volunteering for full-time travelers
If your basic needs are met, you really need money? In a work exchange arrangement, you typically won’t get any money, but you’ll get free food and accommodation, people call this “volunteering”. Some longer term volunteer jobs provide accommodations and food. WWOOFing and other positions are great opportunities!
