When traveling you will have to make sure that you have enough money for where ever you are going but also currency for international travel. If you are one to travel the world then maybe you need to make money while you are traveling also. I know when I travel, keeping yourself on a budget is hard but it is necessary.
First I believe that you can make money anywhere you go. That is why when traveling don't fret that you may run out of money there are many ways that you can earn some on the road. Here are a couple of options you may be interested:
1. Freelance writing: If you are a frequent traveler, see if you can find a newspaper or Magazine that needs writers for travel. You can easily write about your experiences of the location you went to and the hot spots that are there.
2. Photography: You can sell the photos you take to people who may be interested. This could be an easy way for you to also make a name for yourself for some marketing companies. You can sell then to the same magazines you are writing for.
Now to save money as you are traveling or before you leave for your trip. I know when you get to your destination you are going to want to shop around and buy what you can but when you are on a budget you can't do that. There are somethings that you are going to have to cut out. Make a list of all the things that you think that you are going to need and start weeding out the ones that are not absolutely necessary. Like coffee, everyone loves there morning cup of Joe but it can be pricey everyday and especially on where you get it like Starbucks. Start saving as much money as you can for you trip because you want it to be the best experience you could ever have. Some ideas on cutting costs before your trip are:
1. Get rid of cable
2.Stop driving your car and ride a bike to save on all of that gas money.
3. Don't go out every night. I know for some who like to be social this may be hard for but trust me it will save on your budget and your bank account will thank you.
I know that some of these are crazy to think about cutting out your coffee or getting rid of cable but you can do it! Try it out and see how much money you will save, and don't be afraid to go out there and find those freelance writing jobs, take a chance.
If you do let me know how it goes in the comment section, I am interested in all of your travel experiences!
