A complete guide on how to work and travel around the world, from a California girl and UCLA Alumna who has done it all!
Cue Fifth Harmony — “you ain’t gotta go to work work work — but you gotta put in work work work!” If you want to travel the world.
I worked and traveled around the world to twenty-four countries before I started my blog or opened up an Instagram account. With so many double-taps and click-bait headlines, it seems like everyone wants to quit their job to start a blog and travel the world.
You probably don’t want to start a travel blog. You don’t need to be “Instafamous” to travel the world.
I can get into that later, but ask yourself, what are you really trying to do?
Get free travel? Nothing is free.
When it comes to work and travel around the world, you have two options:
Save some money, and then take a break from work to travel.
Travel while working. Aka get a job overseas, or a career that will send you overseas.
Personally, I lived option two and in different formats.
In 2012, I bought a one-way ticket to Australia to take a gap year. I then traveled around the world while working remotely in marketing and in 2014, I started my own business . Through my lifestyle of work and travel, I’ve met so many people with unique career paths. I’m happy to share these with you in hopes that you find a journey that works for you.
