If there was something that I would tell any parent before they settled down to have kids, is that you should go experience the world. Travel broadens the mind they say. And when I’m older, I can’t wait to go and see more of the world, but right now it’s not plausible, for obvious reasons! Going traveling is expensive, but there are ways around it. You can travel the world and earn money doing it, and it doesn’t have to be the high-flying way of being a travel writer or blogger! Have a look at these job ideas and if you want to travel the world, these are some great ways to earn money so you can broaden your mind.
Being an au pair is more than just being a nanny! Living with a family in another culture is a fantastic way to experience the world from a different point of view. Yes, you would be doing the cooking and cleaning (and who really wants to do that?) but you would be learning another language by immersing yourself in their way of life, and that is the best way to learn any foreign tongue. Not only would you be getting a cultural makeover, but you would be living rent-free with the family too, and they would provide everything for you.
What’s that? It’s an abbreviation for Teaching English as a Foreign Language. You are skilled in speaking and reading and writing in English, so why don’t you use your skills! Continents like Asia or India, or anywhere where English isn’t a first language, are screaming out for people to go there and teach natives how to speak the language. As long as you’ve got a high-school diploma or equivalent, you can get a certificate to teach it, and it may cost a small fee, but you can get personal loan lenders to lend you the fees. And the great thing about this, there is always a quick turnaround when it comes to hiring people, so you could be up and away in a matter of months. Not only is it a great way to see the world, but it would be an extremely rewarding experience!
Have you dreamt of being on the slopes looking at the Alps? If your ski skills are above par, you can complete an intensive course over the space of a few weeks and you could be in the Alps in a matter of months! It does help if you speak many languages, but with the immersion you will have in another culture, you can easily pick up the basics!
If you’re looking for a career to help you travel the world, this is the best prospect. You will be able to see the world, and if you have experience in customer service or customer relations, you can do this without any problem. It is a wonderful way to travel, and you will be able to get discounted flights for other family members!
