How to Travel the world and Work on the Move
A life filled with travel around the world, seeing the sights, meeting new people, and absorbing new cultures, may seem more like a dream than a plausible reality. Though the modes of transportation are available and adventure awaits, it is the need to make money and have a steady job that often holds many of us hostage in our corporate and labor worlds. But, it may just be possible to work and travel the world at the same time. With the right job and schedule, you can both expand your geographic pursuits and make money all at the same time.
One of the ways in which you can have all of your personal needs met and still see the world is by finding a job on a yacht or floating resort. Yachts are often in need of volunteer crews that will help with basic tasks on board the boat. From cleaning the deck surfaces, taking care of guests, or cooking for those onboard, there is always a need for work to be done. While some of these crews may offer a paycheck, there are many crews that will be paid in room and board. What this means is that you will be taken care of while you are working and getting to see the different locations around the world. This is quite the tradeoff and can be very beneficial for the wannabe globetrotter. A great way to be in the good graces of your captain is to always be helpful and share resources with him, a great resource all captains I know loved is My Boats a great app to manage and maintain your boat.
In today’s modern and technologically driven world, the face of jobs and employment is changing. While most jobs do involve leaving home and traveling to an office or labor site, there is a shift toward more technologically linked offices. Freelance workers can offer their services via the Internet and work for employers around the world while pursuing their own goals. Freelance work comes in a wide variety of forms. It can include work in fields like IT, writing, photography, graphic design, SEO and more. Regardless of the forms it takes, these jobs can be done in virtually any location that has an Internet connection and an ability to connect with the boss. That means that as a freelancer, you can work and travel the world as long as you have your technology and connectivity in check.
While many teachers head to classes at the same location every day, there is no need to do this in many of today’s modern teaching jobs. Those who are interested in traveling the world and working at the same time may find teaching jobs that work outside of the traditional norms. For instance, an English teacher or basically anyone who wants and able to teach English can choose to teach it in other countries or work in a travelling educational unit. There are many options for English teachers to teach is East Asia and India. Whether they are drawing a paycheck or are being paid via room and sustenance, these are great jobs that not only allow you to see the world, but also give back at the same time. Make sure, though, that no matter what type of travelling teaching position that you take, you are aware for whom you are working and take safety into consideration. If you do that, then, there is no reason that you cannot enjoy both the financially stable and travelling life all at the same time.
