Travelling the world is great fun and something which everyone should experience in their lifetime if they get the chance. No, in fact even if you don’t think you have the chance then you should go out of your way to create one for yourself. It really is that good! The problem with travelling is that you never have enough money to do everything that you want or need to do and find yourself desperate for more cash to sustain your free and fun loving way of life. This means you turn to work, yes you can get the casual retail jobs in Sydney desperate! Sustaining that way of life isn’t easy to do so to make sure you get the best out of the experience here are a few things that you should try. What’s the worst that could happen?
It sounds obvious but you have to get around and see whatever you can to soak all the culture and differences in society in. Although it is pretty much part of the job description a lot of people can get stuck in one place and stuck in a bit of a rut. Take Australia as an example. Australia has great cities like Sydney, Melbourne and Perth which are all very prosperous and full of job opportunities and a great way of life. For this reason you might feel like you want to stay in one place, like Sydney, for the majority of your time there – don’t. It is a fantastic place but there are even better ones awaiting you, all within driving distance or a cheap flight.
When you do inevitably run out of money then the only option you have left is to turn to work, unless you have some very rich and some very sympathetic parents. Keeping in mind that you don’t want the monotony of work like it can be at home – you would have just stayed at home if that was the case – you need a job that is free and flexible. You need a backpacker’s job. Basically backpacker jobs are jobs which are part time or not a conventional nine to five where the flexibility and informality of the work is both a benefit to you and your employer.
Bartending springs to mind.
Although it isn’t in keeping with travelling per se, a bit of research goes a long way and cold have a massive effect on your enjoyment while abroad. If you do check out the best parts of a city to stay in and the best hostels for you then you can maximise your time travelling the world, or wherever it is you are travelling.
