Scratching that Travel Itch Without Going Broke

Close-up of Globe

 Travelling the world is something that is the dream of near enough everybody in the world, but so many miss out on this opportunity due to lack of funds, work commitments or a fear of change. However, the world is changing at such an alarming rate that more and more opportunities are becoming available every day.

 While in the past you needed to scrimp and save just to get away for a couple of weeks at most, now, you can travel and work at the same time. There are so many different options out there that it would be unfair to yourself to ignore these chances any longer.


 As the world becomes ever more interconnected, the chance to work remotely in another country is becoming more and more of a reality. This can be done through freelance work, such as writing or photography, but also continuing your career across the oceans.

 Applying for and achieving an online Masters in supply chain management is something that is desirable all over the world. And this is just one of the options available. Many companies on foreign shores are aching for an English speaking person with the right qualifications to help with their international divisions. Seeking these opportunities will provide you with the freedom to travel and keep the pennies rolling in.


 If you just want to give back to the world, the looking into volunteer opportunities is an excellent way of seeing the world and helping those less fortunate. There are charities and organisations that want and need your help to build schools, rescue animals and save the environment that you can apply for.

 This sort of thing will often provide free board and food and you can either stay for a couple of months or join the organisation full time and make a difference for as long as you want. Not only will you get the chance to experience different cultures, but you will also be able to help those who cannot help themselves, and this is one of the noblest things you can do.


 Another option is looking into a complete change in careers. If you are feeling worn out and bogged down in your current job, then researching alternatives to work abroad is something that might just be the antidote to your exhaustion.

 Many people opt to obtain a TEFL certificate that allows them to teach anywhere in the world. Countries such as Thailand and China typically offer a substantial stipend for your services and will even help with getting a working visa as well as providing a living allowance and help you find a place to stay.


 Taking any of these opportunities will give you the chance to scratch your travel itch while ensuring that your bank account remains healthy. It doesn’t even have to be a substantial shift in your lifestyle, and you don’t need to say goodbye to home for that long at all.

 The prospect of moving away and living in another part of the world can be scary but doing it while you can will allow you look back later in life and realise it was one of the best decisions you ever made
