Real Estate

When visiting the country of your choice, look around for some good real estate deals. Some countries encourage foreigners to purchase homes and there are usually estate agents eager to take you around and show you what is available. Check out old houses requiring renovations. These are usually cheaper than new construction and with a bit of initiative and creativity it can be fixed up and made ready for resale. If the house doesn’t require too much reconstruction, you might be able to turn it around even during your vacation and come home with a pocket full of money.

Stock Trading

When it comes to investing, just continue doing what you were always doing. Years ago, a serious trader would direct his broker to take specific actions under specified conditions in hopes that his investment would continue to prosper while he was away. Today, with IPhones and I pads, there is 24/7 access to a trader’s brokerage account and trades can be placed directly through his/her account or via instructions given online to his broker. Once an account has been established, there is no paperwork to be signed or forwarded and all actions are executed within minutes. This makes trading quick and easy. In addition, for anyone doing day trading as a career, there is no reason to stop the process; day trading can accompany you wherever you go.

Buying and Selling Currencies

Buying and selling currencies or Forex is another way to make some money while traveling around. Forex trading is investing in foreign exchange markets and involves trading currency pairs. Once you choose a Forex broker and set up an account, trades can be initiated via a telephone call to your Forex broker, or online from a laptop, or from almost any smartphone or mobile device.

Besides keeping one’s nose constantly looking into a mobile device, there are other ways to make money while luxuriating on the beach watching the waves break on the sand.

If you work in a field that involves online freelance work, you can carry on working while vacationing. Whether your interest is in web design, programming, illustration, writing, marketing, consulting, legal work, engineering or even certain types of admin work, you could continue to work in between dips in the pool or excursions to ancient sites. If you’re looking for some extra cash to help fund part of your travels starting a travel blog might be your answer. Blogs don’t pay much but if you can do it while on holiday, you can make a bit of loose change.

There’s no rule that states you must quit your current job in order to travel. Perhaps your position allows you to work remotely and all you need to do is coordinate with your higher ups in order to get permission to do so. Wherever you travel, you’ll find foreigners who are doing just this, able to make money and travel wherever they wish.
