Although there are many people who enjoy solo travel, there is nothing wrong with wanting to travel with a companion, be it your other half or best friend, and it would be a shame not to enjoy all the amazing experiences travels throws at you together.
Depending on your budget, and skills, you’ll have to carefully assess the best options to work your way around the world. Let’s take a look at a few ways you can travel the world, starting with some options I’ve tried myself.
Working remotely can make you and your travel buddy more spontaneous. You can take road trips if you are feeling adventurous, you can book last-minute flights and travel without compromising your job.
A remote job allows you to be totally flexible, meaning that it’s easier for you to plan out your hours. It will reduce the time you waste while working in an office job by compressing the working hours and dedicating the most suitable time to work while traveling halfway across the world with your better half. It will also save you money because, for example, you don’t have to fuel the car all the time.
The savings can be used to help with your travels instead. Examples of remote jobs include travel blogging, freelancing, web design or freelance social media management.
Have a Focus
If you are feeling a bit overwhelmed, that is understandable. The thought of travelling the world can be daunting, so focus on something which you really want to do. If you love scuba diving, for example, then you can start your planning by adding the best scuba diving destinations to your itinerary. If you already know the basics, you can get jobs at scuba diving centers around the world. You will need to get your Dive Master qualifications, but once you’re qualified it’s a fun way to work your way around the world.
Scuba diving offers a lot to see under the blue crystal-clear waters, and you can find yourself in some amazing locations. For example, Cuba is a great destination for scuba diving, and there is also an abundance of other activities you can do here. By compiling this list, you get to travel to different countries while enjoying your new hobby and hopefully making money along the way.
There are oodles of couple / friend jobs abroad which you can embark on while taking your travel buddy with you to your new job and country. This kind of an opportunity introduces a new culture to both of you while creating friendships with new people.
Working together with your partner abroad sets a new thrill of adventure and adds potential bonding experience for the two of you. You will be able to gain international working experience as a team and will learn how to handle different environments together. You can also start off by house sitting or cat sitting which means free accommodation in a new country while you find a way to make money.
Become an expat
Temporarily residing in a foreign country will definitely expose you to a new way of life, people and new natural wonders. By becoming an expat, you are thrust into a new environment, and this allows you to travel around to places you probably would never experience by staying in your home country. You can visit neighbouring countries and learn different languages from your host country and her neighbours as well. i absolutely loved living in South Korea for two years and the standard of living for expat teachers there is one of the highest in the world.
This allows you to can travel the world while still having a normal life. Whether you want to work together or just become digital nomads, there are many ways the both of you can travel the world and have a wonderful experience.
