Hang around the internet long enough, and you may have come across a few blogs that involve a traveler lifestyle. A lot of people on the internet are actually starting to make money off travelling the world and documenting them. Kudos to you if you’re one of those people. Watching others travel the world and making money off the ordeal, may tempt to us to do the same. After all, you’re making money just through exploration of the world’s novelties! It’s a pleasure many of us would like to have.
Regardless, one question does pop up when considering a traveller career. Is it worth for the sake of an income? Will you be willing to travel and sightsee the world simply to make bank? Is it really worth travelling around the world exclusively for the money? And, is money all there to travel blogging?
Well, I’ve decided to answer that question myself through my own travels!
A Brief Overview
In recent times we have seen travelling has increased a lot across the globe. People have started to quit their jobs just to Travel. Well, my story and experience is different. I have travelled to many cities along on my personal and official tours both. It’s not easy doing so, as travelling for money is kind of a business. There’s always some time involved before you start making an income. And, add to that the costs of travelling, you’re going to be spending a lot before you actually make money. So, basically you need to keep a balance between your travel plans and your work profile. This is assuming that you are lucky enough to travel along with your job.
If you’re not, then you’re going to need some clutch planning for your travels. Again, it’s going to be a while before you travel fulltime, and you’re going to need some variety. Yet, this doesn’t mean that you should be travelling exclusively for the money. Let’s take my travels as an example. You’ll see throughout this post. In fact, a lot of the travelling that I did was therapeutic!
How it all began
It started with a New Year resolution, and a horrible breakup. Indeed, breakups are difficult to forget, unless you stun yourself enough to let go of the pain. And what better way is there to stun yourself, other than through travelling?
My breakup always ruined my internal sense of harmony to the point of complete despair. Well… at least that’s how it felt before my therapeutic exploration began. Traumas as a general rule, are at their highest intensity at the start!
