If you are feeling trapped in your boring full time job and you dream of being able to get out and do something that you love like travel the world but you are unable to do so because you cannot survive without the money that you get from your full time job, it is important that you look at creative options that allow you to earn money doing what you love. Of course, you will need to start planning well ahead of time.

Start preparing early

If you want to travel but you do not know where to start, the best thing you can do is start looking up ideas for interesting ways to earn money while you travel. The first thing you can do is plan to give your home out on short term rent while you are away to help you to earn some money. If you have a car, you can also give this out on rent for the period that you are away to make sure that you have a significant amount of money coming in while you are away. Of course, you will need to get yourself travel insurance which will cost you a bit of extra money however the alternative of not having insurance and getting yourself in to financial trouble while away can be disastrous.

You might find that annual travel insurance will tend to cost you much less on the long run that a one-time plan and this will also let you use it while your travel during the rest of the year as well.

Start a video blog

One great way to make money is to document your trip by starting a video blog. You can help people who want to travel to the location by giving them information about the area, the cuisine and the culture. YouTube and Google will then pay you for each view that you get on each of your videos which will amount to quite a bit of money if you promote your video on social media and ask your friends and family to share it on their own social media pages. It would be even more interesting if you focus on a current trend such as vegan living or plant based eating in the locations that you are travelling to because this is likely to get you more views and people in the community will share it in their own groups on social media too to help you increase your views and your money.
