Hi, everyone. I’m looking for more opportunities to be independent. My family and friends don’t know I’m doing this. I’m not planning on doing anything rash, but I’ve always wanted to travel around the world. I would do ANYTHING to have the opportunity to do that. Right now, I’m looking on the website called worldnomads.com. I’m also going to have more employment opportunities by going to an event on December 8th, 2014. If anyone has any tips on how I can get travel opportunities, I will gratefully appreciate it. Live, laugh, love.
It’s certainly a noble quest you are on and travelling the world will certainly bring you much joy and much learning…as well as a few frights.
Many travellers (backpackers) work their way around the world by teaching English. You will have to do a TEFL/TESOL Course, which can often be done overseas and, if you have a Degree, you will be able to get fairly well paid work almost anywhere. Without a Degree, the opportunities are a bit less.
Another option is to do volunteer work. Google it and you’ll find many opportunities.
Best of luck with your adventure
I certainly have travelled outside the United States…as I’m an Australian.
I’ve visited the USA, Europe, SE Asia, India and the Pacific Islands.
It’s a great passion of mine and I have lived for some time in Singapore and Thailand.
If you’re under 27 years old, you are normally eligible for a working holiday in many Countries….such as Australia, the UK and Europe.
If you’re not into working, and have a little money behind you, you can easily fund yourself in many SE Asian and South American countries, where the cost of living is quite low.
