We’ve all heard of people travelling around from year to year, never having a ‘real job’, but still managing to live, travel, drink, and enjoy life more than most other people. How do they they do it? Options are actually sort of limitless, the most obvious one being, of course, could be simply blogging about your travels and earning through your website. But that’s just one idea with its own cons.
Here are a few options for you if you’re considering living nomadic lifestyle, and travel the world, but don’t really know where you should start.
Writer, editor, or translator
Being a writer, editor, or translator, if you find a company that allows it, or if you become a freelancer/small private company owner offering your services to clients directly, that might be one of the best options, as you can really work from anywhere as long a you have access to internet.
Freelance programmer, designer
Exactly the same applies here, even though it really depends on what sort of projects you are capable of working on. Bigger projects usually require the entire team to be on-site somewhere together because of security issues and everything else (even though, let’s be honest, these days it shouldn’t really matter anymore where you are, security systems and team work CMS’s have evolved a lot). If you’re creating small websites to private clients, perfect.
Poker player, sports trader
If you have educated yourself in poker maths, statistics, and/or basics of sports trading, and you are able to actually be a winner player/trader, being a nomad poker player or betting professional, playing at CasinoUK.com or any other site, it could be a good job for you. Keep in mind though that gambling laws vary in different countries and as such, in some countries playing online might be problematic.
Become a blogger
As I mentioned in the beginning, if you are able to make it, becoming a travel blogger in order to travel, or travel in order to become a travel blogger, sounds like the best option of all. However, compared to previous options, it might not be as simple as it might sound. As, even though you might be able to forget some of the elements, you usually need to be able to write well, edit your own articles, create your blog, update your blog, take good photographs (getting them from google is boooring), promote your blog, learn how to monetize your blog, monetize your blog. Well, these are just a few things you should know about, or get to know about in order to make real money with your blog.
The main thing is that you need to think about jobs that don’t necessarily require being anywhere specific, at least not for a long time. And when you think about it like that, the options are really endless. Just one thing – it might be that you can’t find the job but instead choose to create it for yourself.
All in one, let’s be honest nobody’s goal in life is becoming a nomad just for the sake of it. It’s about what it represents – independence and freedom. It represents endless new experiences all year round. It means making new connections all the time, searching, and finding new opportunities. Obviously, nomad lifestyle also has its dark sides, but I’ll leave that for next time.
