How To Make Money While Travelling – Make The World Your Office!

Have you always wanted to travel but worried about the expenses? Dreamed about being on holiday and earn money at the same time? If yes, then this post is written for you. Pack your bags! Today I’ll tell you how to make money while travelling around the world.

While I was travelling, I met so many other people who were doing exactly the same; living an independent lifestyle and pursuing their dream of travelling forever. They gave me a ton of inspiration and helped me to write this article for you.

So how can you make money while travelling? How can you fund your travels? Who will pay you to travel the world? All these questions must be crossing your mind. The answer is by Travel Blogging. Needless to say, it’s easier to make money with something that you truly love to do.

It’s not all roses and milk tea, though. You have to work hard, and you have to, well, WORK. That in and of itself can be challenging when everyone else around you is on holiday and you’re cooped up in your hotel room strapped to your laptop.

But you know what? On days I’m stuck instead working for 8 or 10 or 12 hours, I still get to take a break, have lunch, and walk outside and see this:

After seeing this, I feel that those hours of hard work are all worth it. I get energised and motivated to work even harder.

Here I am to help you to start your Travel Blog on your very own website and earn money through it. Since its all online and doesn’t require you to be at one place, you can travel around the world while working on your Blog and make money.

So let’s get rolling and make the world your office!


How to Start A Blog for FREE

If you want to start your own Travel Blog and create a professional looking website without spending money on it, then you came to the right place. This is the programme called Wealthy Affiliate which is FREE to start with.

Wealthy Affiliate (WA) is an online community with over 100,000 members and a training centre. With this training platform, you will be able to create a website for FREE, build a reputation, interact with like-minded people, and you will also have access to all the tools required to achieve lasting success.

However, as I mentioned earlier, there are no short-cuts to success. You cannot start earning and become a millionaire overnight. You will have to “WORK” to make it work for you. This programme is a step-by-step guide to teach, train, educate and support you in your journey to become a successful Travel Blogger.

When I joined Wealthy Affiliate, I was very sceptical about it. To be honest, the reason I joined this programme is that it’s free. I didn’t want to spend anything until I know if it’s actually working for me. On the other hand, I didn’t want to miss the opportunity, if it’s genuine. The only way to find out was joining for free so I knew, there’s nothing to lose even if didn’t work. Today I’m so glad I did! So, if you are willing to start without risking a penny – then this is the place.

Here is my honest review about Wealthy Affiliate to help you analyse and make the right decision.

Overview

The program has two membership levels: the starter and the premium. The best part is that you can join without spending a single penny, look around, create your own websites (hosting included) and see how it goes. If you see the potential like I do – then join Premium for even more benefits otherwise, you could still build an online business using your free starter membership, no strings attached. This alone makes WA so much better than any other program or opportunity – there is no risk of losing money to something that might not work.

Wealthy Affiliate training programme is mainly divided into 4 parts:
