So how did you get started actually? I'm actually going onto the freelance route and hoping ultimately to have enough skills to start an online business, however it seems that vlogging/youtube is such a non-technical way to earn all that money while travelling that I'm considering making a side-project on vlogging

There are plenty of companies that hire based on languageskills. I know people who have worked in Manila speaking Swedish. I worked in Ireland speaking Norwegian. Spain, Greece, Romania, Bulgaria... Mostly it-support and customer service. You do work a lot, but you get the opportunity to experience a new culture and use your freetime traveling.

If you are obsessed with a certain area/country but do not have the money to spend time there, I really recommend a receptive travel agency in that destination as work place. They specialize in certain travellers eg. from USA or Europe and really need native speakers to communicate with their clients. You will be able to travel the country (because you need to know what you are talking about) and share your passion with other travellers. For me it's a dream job :) If you want more infos, ask me

I'm pretty sure that most schools in japan just require a degree. There's also jobs that you can get there to teach English at like a café or on the side where you don't even have to have a degree.

hooking is a good one, good money and cash in hand no tax, almost all brothels in australia mostly filled with girls with visiting visas, no language requirement as well, no kissing or you can charge extra $30 or more for kissing if you want, its illegal not wear condoms, they earn $500 a day minimum, 100% safe!!!

I just saw this video in my recommended and decided to watch it because the career I'm going for requires a person to travel quite often and, in some cases, even live in a different country for up to four years. I noticed that you did not mention foreign service (this mainly applies in the U.S., so I can see why it might not be ideal for people that live in other parts of the world). The only requirement for this job is a high school diploma and you must go through a two part exam and an extensive medical and security check. If you pass all parts of the exam, then you will be considered an official foreign service officer. You're paid to travel and associate with other diplomats and leaders of other countries. All travel and living expenses are paid for by the government and are even paid to learn a foreign language. Your salary depends on your level of schooling and how many years you've been working as a foreign service officer. If you have a family, you are allowed to take them with you on trips, however, that depends on the place you are assigned (i.e. if its a war zone, dangerous place). The main point of this job is to promote democracy and peace between nations. Just thought to add this here. :)

I worked on a cruise ship for while and loved it. For the most part its a set route till you change ships so it's not seeing much, but I loved it. I worked four hours in the morning I was off work for about four hours and worked the evenings. I got to see every port. We only had one super long day a week and it was Sunday

My mom worked on a cruise - Celebrity, which is Royal Caribbean's upscale brand. She said the same thing - they overwork you. You're "on the clock" almost 24 hours a day, and spend your day off sleeping all day.

I am an engineer, so I don't know what it's like in other lines of work. But whenever I worked for companies that sent me on business trips, it was lots of overtime hours. One time, I got to work on a winery in California for a month. We were working 13 hour days, 6 days a week. Most people slept in their day off. On my days off, I drove to Yosemite, went cave rappeling, and hung out with friends in San Francisco and San Jose. Each of those places was a 2-3 hour drive from the winery, which was in the desert and miserably hot. But usually my trips were to places most people would never visit for fun. Rural Arkansas. Rural South Carolina (seriously, 20 minute drive to the nearest starbucks or mcdonalds). Actually, Arkansas seemed pretty cool. They were doing zombie 5k runs before anyone else. But I didn't really have time to do anything outside of work.

Some people in countries can't find a job but people can travel to those countries and get jobs? I can't afford to travel and make travel vlogs I make regular vlogs, best content on YouTube, I just released the full documentary Overpriced. Not enough people watch my documentary or vlogs to make any money worthwhile to pay for my camera, how am I supposed to travel to other countries when I can't afford new clothes?

Great video! Coaching is a good one too. Health coaching, life coaching, business coaching - you can do all of them online :) I got my health coaching certificate at IIN and the SWIHA for life coachng but there is the School for Psychology of Eating and endless number of life coaching programs out there. I guess you can become a mentor or consultant of something too :) Also, as a yoga teacher you can travel too. And scuba diving instructors and kite surfing instructors get jobs abroad. You can work as animator entertainer at hotels or work on a cruise ship too. Workaway and wwoofing doesn't pay but gets you room & board. I've personally started as a grad student for my thesis research then working as a social researcher in my field, then turned English teacher, health coach online and freelance writer. Also lots of workaways.

Spent most of my working life as a musician on cruise ships and hotels. The better you are at reading music the more openings you will have. Depending on your status your port days are your own, sign up as a tour escort for the passenger tours and you get the best of all the ports, over night stop are a real bonus. Good luck.

Hey ally, from Sri Lanka, an awesome book on how to become a digital nomad, you might have heard of it, is the four hour work week

Thanks for making such great content.

I have done some of these myself including teaching English abroad and travel blogging and vlogging. The only one I got paid for was tutoring for Spanish (which came from the English teaching internship, ironically enough). I would love to have my own business dealing with teaching languages!

In regards to picking up freelance work, I would caution people to make sure their visas allow it - For example, in the UK, if you get stamped in as a visitor (for 6 months), your stamp in your visa states that you are not allowed to work. This work includes volunteering, virtual work, and even stupid things like babysitting a friend's kids! Now, chances are you would never get caught....but some people are stupid (hah!) and when an immigration officer asks them "what are your plans while you are here" and you answer "I'm going to write for an online magazine", they're going to tell you nope. I vividly remember back in 2008 when Tim and I were just dating and I was active on forums that were basically designed to help Americans obtain UK visas (work, student, spousal, etc) there was a post from a girl in her early 20s who had been detained for 24 hours and then ultimately sent back to the US.....and the only reason was because she got flagged by the I/O (due to her age and length of time she wanted to stay) and when they searched her belongings, they found her paper diary where she had written in it "babysit for [boyfriend's sister]"...and even though she wasn't going to get paid and she was doing it as a favour....the I/O considered it "work". There also was a story recently about a young science writer who was coming to speak at a convention in the UK and she was denied at the border because she was going to be doing "Work". However, I do think many other countries are more lenient about that sort of thing.
