No matter how frugal you are while traveling, money also seems to go quicker than you thought it would. If there were a downside to traveling, it’d be the cost of going for as long as you want.
That’s why doing some work on your travels can extend your trip for quite a while. You won’t become rich by doing any of these jobs, but you will make enough to get by if you’re dedicated. Best of all, most of these following jobs aren’t particularly time intensive. For the most part, you can work put in a couple hours when you have some down time and enjoy your time on the road.
Transcribing audio won’t exactly get the adrenaline pumping, but it’s one of the perfect gigs to do while traveling. There aren’t specific skills that are required, you can work on your own time and the work can be steady. There’s a bit of a learning curve, but once you get good at it then it becomes easier to earn money. There are a number of online companies offering up projects. Some of the better-regarded companies include Rev and Scribie.
