1. Freelance writer / photographer
This may mean travel writer. but it doesn t have to.
Let s say you were a banker; why not start submitting articles to finance mags and journals? The point is to become location independent, and you don t have to write about travel to do so.
If you do want to write about travel for a living, check out MatadorU . Matador s online travel writing, photography, and filmmaking school.
2. ESL teacher
These gigs easier to find in some countries than others, and requirements vary from a bachelor s degree in any field to a master s in education plus TESL certification. Based on my own personal experience, finding a job in Korea was the easiest and in many ways (when cost of living is taken into account) the best paying. Japan, China, Thailand, and Vietnam are also popular options.
South and Central American countries want ESL teachers, but getting the visa is a bit tougher than it is in Asia. There are plenty of gigs in Europe as well, but in general the requirements are more strict.
Recruiting companies such as Footprints can be extremely helpful if you re looking for an ESL gig; another option is to hunt them down on forums like Dave s ESL Cafe .
