Over the past 27 years, I have been working in 31 different countries around the world, of the 72 countries i have visited so far. While I also love to travel through a country purely as a visitor, Working in a foreign country gives you a whole different insight to a place and it really helps you in your job hunt, wherever you are looking for a job at home or abroad. Working around the world rocks.
I live in a hotel room more than 300 days a year because I work as a tour leader and live a life as a professional globetrotter and have no permanent place to live. It’s been like this for more than 8 years and when you live out of a hotel room, then you develop some habits that are totally natural to you, but might differ a bit from the way other people live their life.
I work as a freelancer in tourism and travel the world 365 days a year and live in hotels and eat in restaurants more than 300 days a year. This is something which is quite possible to do and here are some of the things I do in order to make a fine living from traveling the world. And I will also talk about some of the things that you should not do if you want to make a living from traveling.
