New ways to fund your love for traveling

Traveling is not cheap, regardless of where you want to go. You have to pay for transportation, accommodation, food and leisure activities like festival tickets and club entry fees. If you have a minimum wage job, you won’t be able to do any of that, which is why you need other solutions. We’re about to present several, but the one that stands out the most is by far sports betting. 

Sell what you don’t need

You might be surprised to see how many of the things you bought you no longer use. Do a sweep of the entire house and put in a basket everything you haven’t touched for at least 6 months. Ebay and Craigslist are great places to market what you want to sell.

You could include old clothes in this huge decluttering action. Chances are you won’t be able to sell clothes for much, so you could just donate them altogether. Apart from doing a good deed for the year, you also make your house look cleaner.

Online gambling

Be it in the form of casino games or sports betting, this activity can bring you some extra cash, maybe enough to pay for transportation and/or accommodation, depending on how skilled you are. Sports betting and games like poker require research and practice on your behalf, so decide what type of gambling you would be best at.

You could, of course, choose games that are based purely on chance, like online slots for example, in which case you can win enough to turn your life around. We’re talking about the quit-your-job-and-move-to-Paris kind of winnings, but that’s very unlikely even though it’s possible. If you want to embrace this method, do it with an open mind and with low expectations. You won’t get rich overnight unless you are an incredibly lucky person.

Freelance writing

Do you have a topic you can talk about for hours without taking a breath? In that case, why not put it into writing? You can either set up your own website/blog where you will post all that informative content, or you could work for others who need articles on that particular topic. The latter is easier because you don’t have to market your website and invest in increasing its traffic, which is not cheap nor easy considering the competition.

However, it can be hard to find employers who look for content in the areas you are interested in and you might end up writing on completely different topics. Still, if you enjoy writing in general, you won’t mind too much and you’ll get to fund your upcoming travels.

Tutor online

This works best if you know a foreign language that few people are fluent in. You won’t have a lot of competition, but there is a downside: the demand for such languages is not very high either. Still, you can teach all sorts of different subjects from maths to chemistry and biology.

You should know though that tutoring is not as easy as it seems. You need a clear head and a solid understanding of the subject. Besides, you also must be capable to make the person in front of you understand your explanation.

If you don’t have good people skills, you could just upload videos on YouTube. This way, you make money out of ads and you don’t really have to deal with people directly. Still, you do need to catch the attention of your viewers, a thing that’s quite difficult to achieve if you are not a charismatic.
