Recently, I was in Gwanju institute of science and Technology, south Korea for a six months internship programme, believe me or not, it was the greatest thing that did happened in my life. Been my first time, I had no prior knowledge of the language, culture, religion and kind of foods etc. But my heart was already prepared for the journey, and it was remarkable.
People are inclined to think that traveling and living abroad will cost them a fortune, believe me, it’s not that much. Just a few dollars. Instead, you will in turn live like a king because of the enormous opportunities available. Except you plan on driving expensive cars and going out for shopping on a daily basis.
Take my advice; living with the people and acquire more knowledge about their culture, foods and tradition is the real hit.
With the above been said, below are the top 5 ways to live like a king while travelling abroad.
Start a Blog and become a Problogger With Ease
I was privilege to attend a day seminar hosted by John Chow of Johnchow.com; a problogger who makes millions of dollars teaching people how to blog and make money online. He visited Sanjose city in the US, for a day seminar, and I was marveled by his success. From a newbie blogger who barely handle his internet bills, eat properly to currently a millionaire blogger.
Although other probloggers raking in millions from blogging abound, like Yaro Starak of entrepreneurs-journey.com, Pat flyn of smartpassiveincome.com and Harsh Agrawal of Shoutmeloud.com . The list is unending.
All this success, just from the comfort of their homes or kitchen. Starting a blog from the beginning can be very demanding although less expensive, as low as $10 for a domain name with free hosting from blogspot – but pays extremely well at the long run. These days, there is hardly any child above 16 years without a mobile device to surf the internet for any information. With your blog, you can reach out to this teaming population after carving a niche for yourself; you can create a product catalogue to market your own merchandise like Books, mobile devices and shoes etc. Apply for affiliate marketing programs and make profits from relevant commissions earned.
Engage in pay per click services like Google Adsense. Two weeks ago, a friend of mine after working for 20 years, decided to retire from his banking job and travelled to Toronto Ontario in Canada, while travelling he took some beautiful photographs and autographs with some personalities, while in plane and when he landed in the city. Made few post, comments and shared on his little niche blog, Instagram and Facebook account which he created few months back before retiring from his job. Shockingly, he earns few dollars and today he is happy with his blog that currently earns between $1000 to $5000 on monthly basis.
Blogging is not a get rich quick scheme, so much effort is needed to generate the desired income. The important thing is that it doesn’t require you renting an office, just from any place you are. You’re certain of making your money. if you’re inquisitive about starting a blog now, you’ll find mountains of helpful and relevant information online from blogs like Johnchow.com, Copyblogger.com,problogger.net,Shoutmeloud.com. Honestly, this is the best shot to start with while planning your next trip abroad.
Teach English and Become a Real King
This is practically my best option to rule while planning your next trip abroad. Do you think English language is simple? Visit Asian countries like Korea, Japan, Malaysia, China and even Middle East countries; you will be mesmerized at what you will discover. Frankly, I had to return back to my home country because I needed to see my Grandmother and help her out with one or two things she needed.
Some clients pay as much as $3000-$5000 monthly including a well furnished accommodation, airfare to and fro from home country and lots more, the only requirement is for you to be a native speaker of English, posses relevant university degree in any field. Citizens from countries like UK, US, Australia, Newzealand and South Africa are always given priorities. Although qualified intending teachers from other countries are also accepted. Additionally, been a university graduate with relevant English teaching certifications are also highly desirable.
Most credited online organizations offer certified TEFL/TESOL and CELTA Certifications to registered members and also offer job placement after undergoing one or two week’s intensive training with them. What I did was to register for TEFL online at liveteflprague.com, received my certificate in four weeks and visited eslcafe.com for short job placement in Seoul. I was able to make $10,000 throughout my stay in South Korea for a period of 6 months. Hopefully, I will be travelling back by the end of this year to teach English in Busan, South Korea for at least two years through liveteflprague program. Living like a king is not in any form a doubt because opportunities are countless and if you think you might need something different or a place to rest your head after landing, just keep reading.
- Join World Wide Organization of Organic Farms (WWOOF)
These days I feel life is so simple and I am afraid of been too comfortable, because comfort zone is a dangerous zone. Have you assembled your luggage already? I can sense the feeling of a happy king living happily abroad, in a desired location. The next time I travel to Seoul, I will locate WWOOF and get the experience. With World Wide Organization of Organic Farms, you can travel to several dissimilar countries and work happily on organic farms. Chiefly, you can exchange food, clothing and housing with the host family by working happily for a period of 3-6 hours. This creates room for exploration and other activities as the rest of the day is handsome .With the provisions enclosed; you only need to cover your travel expenses. Two close friends who retired two years back “WWOOFed” for 8 months in China, my elder brother is currently planning on joining the WWOOF program in Italy.
- Engage in Freelance Writing
I have talked about blogging, and sincerely I won’t be at peace if I don’t reveal the real hit. Everyone I encounter these days are planning on travelling abroad for either long-term or short term basis, but there exist a common stumbling block, which is money. Do you think money is still a problem? I will receive your answer in the comment box below. According to Harsh Agrawal of shoutmeloud, a blogger can be a freelance writer, but a freelance writer cannot be a blogger. Nevertheless this statement is true to an extent, because a freelance writer can decide to create a blog for himself after making so much money. Freelance writing is one of the easiest ways to earn money online while travelling abroad. It also requires good and presentable writing skills, you can join any of these power packed sites covered by Writersincharge that pays hundreds of dollars for freelance writers.
Grab some writing jobs, and earn money. Freelance writers can earn as much money as they desire because they set their working time, decides on working part-time or full-time, work from anywhere within and outside the city. This is what I call the true king spirit. The pen is truly mightier than the sword. Been a freelance writer only requires few skills such as good mental and physical mindset, good content research ability and the ease in conveying practical information in writing.
- You Can Decide To Work on a Cruise Ship if You Like
After making so much money, you might want to check out a cruise line and add extra few bucks since you’re now living like a king. Vividly, I can recall my elder brother while travelling on a ship, he met this lovely family from Thailand, they were so friendly and accommodating, they told him about Cruise ships and how there are always in search of new employees to be in charge of their gigantic ships.
According to their account they’ve succeeded in making over $2000 so far covering for some housing, clothing’s, domestics, food and electrical bills. He came back making everyone feel that’s the only reason he intends travelling abroad. Frankly, I am not in total disagreement because on my next trip to South Korea, I intend working on a cruise ship as my secondary channel to fuel my tank, since the job doesn’t involve excessively amount of commitment.
