Pure sharing! ! ! How to travel around the world for 2 years to spend 230,000 to earn 210,000 baht

From May 2017, my boyfriend and I resigned to travel, and returned in February 2019. The entire trip went to 27 countries, the total cost of adding up to 230,000, and earned 210,000 in travel! ! !

Many people say that it takes 230,000 to travel for two years? ? ? This is to save more! In fact, the two of us are very economical in terms of airfare. Many countries are connected together. It is natural to save the ticket money when sitting on the bus. The hotel has the worst living in a cowshed and has lived in a five-star hotel, but it is usually a safe and secure place to stay. After the final trip, I found that I also earned 210,000! ! !

Make money while traveling. If you want, you have a chance.

Do travel from the media
We started editing, retouching, shooting, not all, they are learning while playing on the road. We shared the story of the trip to the Internet, wrote a travel photo, cut the video, and made one thing exquisite, and slowly got a little fan. When there are more fans on each platform, there will be corresponding gold master dad to cooperate. Go experience or advertise!

This method is hard to say, maybe you will be on fire one day. But it may have been so tepid, and the initial investment has not paid off. But the premise is: you must share, find the right style and positioning, in order to reach the approved flow of others.

Submission to the magazine
The nature is similar to the first one, and the small and famous magazine will come to the draft. This process is also to share more, but also to test professional skills - writing and retouching. And the rewards are not a lot.

The biggest way to make money in purchasing
long-distance travel is what many travelers are doing. Everyone knows how to make a purchase. It is to use the circle of friends to bring goods. It is very easy to do when it is just 15 years old. Anyone who sells foreign products is selling well. Now more and more people are purchasing and doing. The bottleneck. However, I also realized that many of them have done a good job. They bought the house on behalf of one or two years. It is very easy to enter 50,000 a month.

Customized travel
Play a route to the extreme, tap the local cultural resources and then bring your own group to earn commissions. This method is not bad at first, but in the end, if the source does not expand, it will not be able to end up ~

It seems cool to make money while traveling, but this is very unstable! The initial investment is too big, the risk is very high, and it is also written to tell the sweet potato who wants to go this way. I want to know what I want, what I can afford and then decide to do it! Responsible for yourself, responsible for family, responsible for society~

Khan Khalili market day and The style of the night is different. Don't miss the Khalili market in Cairo. No matter what you buy, you have to prepare for a counter-offer. This is an indispensable procedure in the market, whether it is local Egyptian customers or foreign tourists. same.
