If you’re an adventurous soul and you’re dying to see the world but you can’t afford it – these suggestions are for you. You really can see the world if you’re savvy and thoughtful about the way that you travel. Here are a few ideas:
1. Watch a stranger’s home: This is a really creative way to see the world. If you look at a site like TrustedHousesitters.com, you’ll see that you can find ways to watch other people’s homes while they are away.
2. Cruise around the world: You can work on a cruise ship and get paid while you travel. You could be a singer, a waiter, a photographer, a musician and more. Now, while this may sound romantic, many people find the hours grueling and the work isolating as you’re on the ship for so many weeks at a time.
3. Make it count: You can see parts of the world by helping others. You can do the Peace Corps. You can look into World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms where hosts provide the accommodations and food and you work on their farms. You could also teach English abroad.
4. Be a snow bunny: Here is a creative idea. Check out a ski resort that offers seasonal work. They might be looking for hotel staff, ski instructors, bartenders and cooks.
These are just a few of the ways that you can set sail on your next adventure without breaking the bank.
