Become a Travel Blogger
This trend is on fire recently.

This way you’ll end up with more followers which means greater brand attention that ultimately leads to more sponsored trips!
Write and Photograph for Travel Magazines
If you are not interested in taking the pains to become a travel blogger by yourself, you could use your skills to earn money from a third party. Apply for travel magazines, online blogs, newspapers, holiday companies/websites, etc. and sell your enticing travel pictures, travel articles (about routes, places, food, etc.), itineraries, and so much more for good money. This way you’ll enjoy your holiday while earning on the go.
Teachers for English are in huge demand everywhere.

You can check for these certifications online and see if you want to get one of these to have an upper hand. Grab an opportunity at The International TEFL Academy and Teach Away that matches with your requirement.
Work on a Farm
