Want to make money and travel the world?

These days it might seem like everyone wants to travel the world. But unless you are independently wealthy, who has vacation time to spend months backpacking Central America or motorcycling across Laos?


Enter: long term travel paired with paid (and sometimes volunteer) gigs. Because not everyone with wanderlust has trust fund. Or is an influencer.


The idea is simple. Save up enough money to travel long term and then stretch your dollars (and your time off) with jobs as you go.
